What vacuum do you use ? I have Kirby Dyson Pro Team

I need a bigger, wider, vacuum for commercial. 24'' wide would be nice.

I've tried to connect 2 Kirby's together but it doesn't work very good and you got two cords.

24'' vacuums go for about $2000 so that's not going to happen.

I couldn't find a Sanitaire 18''. Are you sure it's 18'' ?
They make a 16''.

18'' vacuums are about $800-$900.

I guess I will just use my 15'' Pro Team

Found my vacuum - 20'' Lindhaus Eco Force 500e.

$725 on Amazon.

Most places it's $800-$900. The highest price was $1465 on Walmart ... lol

My mistake distilled water
Peter stop buying distilled water and get a soft water tank. $245 on Amazon.

I use all soft water now. I take the soft water in 5 gallon TM jugs to each job.

I've also read good reviews with the Phoenix. The orbit will let you clean faster. I need to install another orbit bearing on my sprayborg .We just got snow a Little enough to open ski resorts But the cold snap is here for a week and sure more to come. Low moisture keeps me busy this time of year no open doors or windows a huge plus selling carpet cleaning. Money Maker !!!

I haven't used it yet but the snow and ice is melting. Maiden voyage will probably be in March or April.
