    What if all the food served, was all Organic and the cook worked as a Chef in a popular restaurant?

    Organic foods sound a lot like 'Green' cleaning chems - I don't even know what that means......

    Well, I'm interested in some of those!! I would like a 2.5' elbow for the top of the waste tank, or 2 2"to 2.5 Y, and a 2" Y for cleaning upholstery. Not sure why you want to make them stainless over aluminum, but I'm down!!

    Greenies were aluminum, but he had them hard anodized. I didn't want the hassle and cost of having them anodized, and I wasn't sure how they would hold up without. Since they dont stay constantly immersed like an aluminum waste tank I'm probably being overly cautious. Maybe I'll try aluminum as well. I'll let you know.

    Should be a good market either way... Take his place, he had it real good for a while, and no one has stepped up! I was just thinking of expense of stainless,if it's the same, or close go for it! I would say if you can get a weld inside the inside of the V of a Y it would be an improvement(I always get stuff hanging up there).

    You really think there is a market? Lisa always said they broke even or lost money on every one they sold.....

    Well, I'm not sure if there is a market(there should be).. I have read the same as you, and cleaners are REALLY cheap! There should be a market when these things make your TM a powerhouse(at or above24 horse with a #4 blower)!! At the same time I wrench on locals shit(for fun really) and not sure they could even point out any component other then the engine..

    Those aluminium connectors slowly but surely crack and keep falling apart. I have a few from Greenie and I found that I always have to snip off the ends where its cracking and bending (restricting flow). Chems are for sure not helping..

    I would do stainless too instead of aluminium.

    I haven't seen this yet but I haven't checked out my Y splitter from Greenie on the 2008 unit


    Definitely going to take a look at this

    I have been using one Greenies 2.5X2 reducer(I don't believe it was anodized) for at least 7 years and it is still in good shape even though it gets drug across the ground daily. I also use 3 of his anodized 2.5 elbows. Just a little corrosion inside where it is welded to the fastener plate.

    I found this to happen with the 2.5"to 2" reducers. Definitely get messed up over time.

    Here it is. Just setting up to a 3000sqft tile grout job right now.
    You can see the connector is shorter already as I cut it before. I'm sure the occasional drop to the ground doesn't help...but it definitely cracks and bends. Perhaps the El D has toooo much heat and suction... :lol: :lol:

    Interesting! Looks like pretty thin material. I ordered some 16 gauge material, maybe it will last longer?
