There's a laundry mat that wants me to send a truck with a spinner today - they have a bunch of dust - slurry (I think it may be from the plumbers) etc on the floor. Besides clogging up filters is it possible this would stick to the walls of my vac hose? Anybody every use a spinner for this?

I would shop vac the bulk dust up first with a bag filter in the vacuum. To clean out your hoses vac up a few wet rags through them at then end.

I just sent the guys over to the laundry mat with a porty - a water hog & a spinner so I didn't gunk up my good hose or TM filters - worked good - customer called and is happy and I was able to use cheapo 1.5" hose! :D

I guess it depends on what you are running?

I had to remove a layer of mud from a huge basement after construction, hose run was 250 feet.

I removed the filter and just filled my waste tank up with mud!

Spinner took care of it fine, but that was with a TM, high heat and great flowing pressure.

Just glad I sent a porty - the laundry mat was loaded with mud - the guys ran a 175 and the ran a spinner right behind it - the porty almost keeled over and died but it was better then running all the crap through one of my TM's. It was ran a 2.2 gpm & 1000psi and did the job.
