    Yeah I think I have that smaller one too. Thanks Matt and there are people I've talked too who said don't buy one of those overpriced plastic SS , rotovac tools. And I won't.

    I've been getting some big jobs with the churches around here. And with all those pews, a soft touch valve is gonna save my right hand a ton I hope. The doctor won't think anything weird about me spanking my monkey.

    I am still pissed at how I wasted $500 on that SS tool.

    Jimmy, try what Lee suggests and use something (rubber band, velcro strap) to keep the pressure constantly on. Fiddle with your pressure so that barely any moisture comes out the orifice with your tool hooked up to vacuum and pressure sources. You can clean all day without touching your trigger and water removal should be very good.

    I installed a needle valve on one of my pmf tools for constant pressure . But I keep one with just a valve for certain situations so I don't waste water.

    You can lead a horse to water but some jackazzzes always thinks they know better!

    You need two tools a flood tool for standard care fabrics (Prochem) and a dry tool for special care fabrics (Sapphire).
    Quit playing with toys boys and get with the program! :oldrolleyes:

    I'm sorry but anyone who doesn't like or see the value of the SSUP has serious issues.

    Tell me what makes them worth $500? They don't look high tech to me when it's just a shear effect across the fiber.

    I'd have better luck getting my dog to understand.

    Goobers who clean six sofas a year will never get that $500 is nothing.


    We have four SS, two RVs, a Titanium pmf, that clear pmf turd you like and two old Prochems.

    Kleenrite tools were almost $300 in 1981, and I heard similar arguments over the years about them in comparison to cheaper metal tools.

    For $300 I bought a gas grill that weighs about 100 pounds of mostly stainless steel. Thing is big and heavy. I'm sure a LOT more went into R and D than most tools we use.

    I understand they sell more gas grills than distys sell carpet cleaning tools but WTF! 1497882701206-2079698630.jpg

    Maybe @Tim Baker can explain the economics behind high priced cleaning tools...

    You can look at cost but I prefer to look at the benefits.

    It allows you to safely clean special care fabrics. Saving on possible damage from tools that leave the fabric too wet. No sharp metal edges to accidentally slice or snag delicate fabrics.

    Lighter weight allows you to process more pieces with very little fatigue from head weight. Also the lighter weight won't give you carpal tunnel or tendinitis in your elbow like heavier tools eventually will.

    So while the price is higher than the entry level tools, it is competitively priced with the tools in its category.

    NOOO! Maybe 20. This thing is awsome! Not sure but it's heavy gage.

    Not to mention the red matches our colors.

    I've never used the prochem, but that bulky tool looks like it wants to hit someone in the forehead and flood some furniture
