I'm referring to wand temps. Here's the truth about TM temps especially heat exchanger units. They put the sender immediately aft of the heat exchanger, not really 100% accurate.Love this info! Long time porty user looking to swim over to the deep end of the pool. For the sake of clarity, are we talking wand temps or at the TM? And is there a general metric on degrees lost per ft of solution hose?
Jim those are good amount of temps, it's hot enough that cannot be touched and not too steamy, steam doesn't have much of an effect on the rinsing. I want all my water flow to go on the carpet rather then evaporating.Fedri, I'm with you. I clean 50% of my jobs at 155° at 2 GPM. The other half are currently at 185° at 1.5 GPM. Zero difference behind the wand in time or efficiency. Honestly, sizing up the job and nailing the chems means more than heat to me.
So what PSI are you running with a wand at those temps?I think 190 atw is the ideal temp. Helps speed cleaning, activates chemisty and makes carpets dry faster. Any more and you lose flush as so much vapor goes in the air. Not to mention burns the hades out of you if not careful or a hose breaks. This cleaner found this out using his courtesy hose. Not so courteous when the hose is so close to the heat exchanger causing ultra high temps.
