    ()I saw this video in youtube a while back and though it was good way to clean tile and grout but, I was not about to spend 2k to try it.

    Now I have a friend that owns one and I ask if I could use it , he let me borrow it.

    It did awesome job I used Viper Venom from Bridge point

    Nice work.
    Have to agree with Jeff though viper venom is terrible.
    Compared to a great product like tile master.
    Also grout lines look a little yellowy did you not rinse after using viper venom?
    Sometimes with the acid product if not rinsed properly you get a yellowy on grout lines

    Yes I heard a lot of good things from TM
    But I had the job yesterday last minute call.
    so I just stop by my local janitorial store that's what the had.

    I think the square scrub did 90% of the job LOL

    That's the problem you let the acid down to long using a shop vac to vacuum does not properly rinse out the Tile&grout

    I would go back with a neutral pH cleaner lay that down scrub all grout lines then rinse
    Or if you have a truck mount just rinse with high heat and about 500 psi

    Basically the acid is still eating the grout lines. Until it has been properly rinsed

    A TM or good portable is really needed...especially when cleaning restrooms. Not downing your work, you did a good job with what you had.

    How is the square scrub compared to a 175?

    I 5 year old could work with the square scrub very easy to use compare to a 175.

    It felt more heavy than my 175.

    I do have a Mytee LTD5 500 psi with no heat but, do not have a tile spinner yet.

    Thanks

    Andy,

    Use your LTD5. Do you.have a guide on your wand? If so, use that. You will use a lot of water but it can't damage too much in an commercial restroom.

    Here is a pick of a we did with tilemaster, a water otter and air hog. [​IMG]
