Hands down my kleenrite heatrite 2 has been flawless other than a few switches and thermostats. It gives me amazingly hot water and very little grief. I switched out the 190 degree thermostats for 230 and nothing went crispy.My PMF stair tool gets second place. Been through the van fire and was about the only thing I could salvage, no repairs or valve replacements.

The portable I built. Once I worked out the bugs with the pump, it's been solid. Powerful and reliable.

The Zipper is a very useful tool on commercial
And I can see how some idiots might use it on residential
That's the worst tool to use in a house. I don't get how some guys actually believe they're moving faster and with less labor on that tank in closets, hallways and furnished rooms. I actually argued with them. Waste of breath

It's being used wrong if that's what you/they are doing. Just like painting, you cut in all those awkward spots and they hit all the open areas to give the carpet a superior flushing than any scrub wand could do.

I prefer the Zipper Spinner, smoking hot water spinning all round the fibers. Hard to beat the results.

In a furnished house, it's the wrong tool to use. There's no right way to use that tool. It's made to be walked, not swung back and forth. And you can't walk a wand in 20ft sections in a house

Of everything we've ever used in our business, bang for buck day-in-day-out reliability, the nod would have to go our Cimex machines.

That is a good one.. I would say my Credit Card. It fixes everything that goes wrong or I mess up. Plus at the end of a long day it can buy me a happiness in the form of new equipment'
