Haven’t pulled this much hose in almost 2 years. No. The filter doesn’t leak. I guess it could, but I don’t have that problem. 200 feet to the filter. 50’ past the filter.

Dry stroke and air movers. I could not justify that much wasted hose. Run a crb or scrubber first to agitate and possibly turn pressure down to extract. I just do not understand the philosophy and waste of time and hose with 4 to door. no room in the truck for anything except hoses.

I use to do the rope-ah-dope.
what happens over time you discover you don’t need all that stuff so you eventually develop your own operating methods that work well for you and so you stick with that.
(oh let’s not forget all that stuff becomes wasted money piled up in the basement scratching your head how to get rid of carpet cleaning stuff no one wants)

4 to the door is better. I don’t keep all that hose on the van.

lol...I recall you canceling an order when Olson took his...
No. I canceled my order when he was a ******* dick on the phone. When y’all were selling a product that wasn’t ready to sell.
At the time of order, it didn’t say you’re taking pre-orders. It looked as if the product was ready to be bought and shipped.

Well, I'm going to close out that invoice otherwise it screws up my QuickBooks. But the offer stands whenever you're ready
I’ll buy them. I was going to this morning. I just don’t want to get the slot. We talked about the hole and brush. Your the one that brought up old shit.

Stupid.

Just get a hole Glide ( for your SSTI14) and do an extra dry stroke.
I'm would go 4 for the first 50 down to 2.5 for a 100, then drop the last 100 to 2.

250 feet of 2 inch you lose to much.

Like that run at Ron McDonald house in San Diego first time we cleaned it with the new 870/everest.

True.
I double wand (200 ft X 2). Straight 2" vac hose. Set my Hydromaster CDS 4.8 to LOW rpm. 300-325 psi. Believe it or not, it works. Both carpet and seats. Even with one guy cleaning carpet and one guy upholstery. Doesnt seem right, but it works. Usually takes 6 hrs machine time so thats why I tried it and it works.

It’s better than the 250’ of single 2” that I used to do.

Doubtful, he rejected my 40% off offer.

Way better, at mikeysfest st Petersburg, Joey Harper has 1000 foot runs, he runs double 2.5 for 500 ft, I believe he said 400 2 inch to y the last 100 2 inch.

He said using the 2.5 like that is moving your truck 500 ft closer.

I was about 400 ft away from my 870 at a job and we had another van so I borrowed the extra hose and ran 4 to the filter off the first 50 ft all my guys were surprised how much more airflow it seemed to have created we then cut down vacuum as fast as we could throughout the job.
