Did a small flood job today, (small ones are the only ones I do these days) used the Zipper to extract instead of the wand. The benefits of the Zipper is that for one thing, you can see the water being extracted through the clear tube. The weight of the Zipper keeps the tool on the carpet and it is very easy to push and pull. Extracted until very little water was being pulled from the carpet, installed some drying equipment and that's it until I go back to remove equipment and clean. Try it, you'll like it.
