Excellent. I have not released it yet because the liberals in the carpet cleaning world will cry "its not a 100% perfect"
Therefore I am giving it 500 hours field time first. ;)
I always tested new chemicals for 3 to 6 months before I gave them the green light and brought them out to my customers.

Don’t have a fresh water tank. The blue bottle that you see in the pictures is a water softener system.
The reel is sitting on a plate that swivels 360 degrees. The plate is sitting on an arm made of angle iron that is bolted to plate that is bolted to the frame of the van.
I still need to build a kick stand for extra re-enforcement.
Electric live reel and electric vac hose reel. If you look closely in the front of the Everest you will see a toggle switch that powers the reel.
If you guys have any questions, or if you have any input please let me know. Thank you

That is a big piece of metal a friend gave me. CNC machined.
Took it down and put it in my shop.
Yup Geropilo is doing good, hope next year we win some games.

In 20 years of carpet cleaning I have only needed one 3 times. I guess I’m in a place where water is always accessible.

You dont have to have a fresh water tank...
Accept on apts.....

On rentals i will call to see if warter is on...
Usually better to tqke water....
Also sometimes,on large commercial accts......
You will have a far section that cant reach water hos ...eisier to fill tank...
I knew a guy who had a 120 gallon tank...filled it up in the morning and used most of the day.......
A lot of extra weight on your van however????

Yup I here you, we carry extra hoses just in case. I usually get by with the 100 foot of house I have on my reel. Was thinking about the tank though but haven’t had anything push me to make the leap.
