The 240-120 will give you a little more flexibility regarding your amp draw. If you are able to use all four switches (5 amps per switch) it will provide you with 2400 watts of heat. This will sustain your hot water for longer periods of time. The 200-120 is two sitches (8 amps per switch) and is 2000 watts of heat.

Thank you Rick and Paul,so if it was you wich would you go for, just to give me an idea because I do a lot of commercial and is after hours and theres no problem s with the amps( most bussines use 20amp breakers,) my deal is in residential, when you have all the hoses, and cables and that big box, how about the weight? is there some kind of bracket to attache it to the machine?

If you want to compare the two units better you can do so by clicking on each one here. http://www.mytee.com/products/index.php?cat=carpet Each one has a web page with complete information even a .pdf brochure and manual you can look at. There is no bracket to put them on an extractor to my knowledge. They are not extremely heavy. The 2000 watt is only 15 lbs. and the 2400 is 25 lbs. I suspect the 2400 watt will be able to sustain better heat than the 2000 if all 4 600 watt heaters are turned on at the same time which would max out a 20 amp circuit. The 2000 watt appears to have two 1000 watt heaters and only draws 16 amps max so there is less chance of overloading a circuit and tripping a breaker. I think it would be adequate for many situations. Even though it says they both are capable of 210 degree heat that does not mean they can sustain it and I would bet the 2000 watt one can't sustain heat as well as the 2400 watt can.

210 degree heat is just the maximum temperature the units could reach before thermal protection / safety sensor would cut the unit off.

The output temperature depends upon the input temperature, the number of watts and how long the water remains in the heater.

A 2000 watt heater (anyone) under typical use conditions will give a 24 to 28 degree temperature rise.

a 2400 watt heater will increase temperatures an additional 4 or 5 degrees.

The 200-120 does come standard with a wire hanging bracket. However the 240-120 is a little too large to mount on the machine.

Both are good, but I would opt for the 200-120 model. It's 16 amp draw is about perfect. It is never good to use up the very last amp in the system just to run a heater.

I have that Mytee 240-120, I am not that happy with it. Some time doesn't heat it at all, sometime keep around 100 F on all switches ON that is 20 amps. I don't know what to tell you but if I have to buy it now, I will not buy it at all.That is my opinion of course.

The ProChem 2000 is a hot heater. :mad:
You have a Thermo control knob on one end to 240f..:cool:

You won't get 240f but thats whats on the knob..:cool:
Maybe that will make you think your getting 240f.. LOL!


My pump went out so you plug'r in the Kitchen.
Set the heater on the counter on a thick towel.
Hook up to faucet and turn on the hot water..
Pressure hose hooks up directly to the wand..

Steam will be all over.. :cool: :D :cool:

Try this; I had a heater die on me the other day; Stuck bucket heater under auto fill lid; water temp stayed warm but not bad enough to hurt pump; Myte 240 was on last 50 foot; it made really decent heat that way; however I wouldn't recommend doing this without auto fill due to possible cavitation and pump damage.

Also as a general practice with porties and electric heaters; use shorter cleaning strokes and an extra dry stroke or 2; that will enable recovery time for heater and a more thorough cleaning IMHO.

What type of tool are you using to clean with? For example what size jets and how many. I will see what I can do to help you with your unit.
