I just like the ease of use. Just roll up. Pre vac/spray and just my hoses and go. No worries about breakers or finding plugs.

How much time do you estimate it saves you?? Having a generator and not having to plug and unplug everytime. I'm betting it could save me a hour on some jobs.....

I don't think I would save so much time on plugging my 2 cords because I have power reels that's easy to wind them back. Few times a month I trip a breaker or 2 and it's frustrating to find another plug and at the same time trying to find out which one tripped. It will save me some hassle, also the old neighborhoods some homes got poor connections with the old system will not limit me using a bigger pump. However I think I can move quicker from job to job having a generator probably saving 10min on each job and possibly some frustrating.

does anyone make and or sell a portable circuit detector??
I have a built in one in my mytee booster someone has to sell a portable unit. That would really help me out with the EDIC I have.
I wonder if the mytee water hog has a circuit detector on it like their booster.

I always try to set up my booster on their porch. Then I can run the waste water into the toilet or sewer clean out. Just the 2 cords from the booster into the house no problems.
Two or three more cords it seems to get messy.
