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.

Yeah, might need a deeper extractor like Hydro X for some carpet/pad jobs but Zipper is killer for glue down floods!

The Zipper is not the right extraction tool for carpet and pad, too slow.
For small flood jobs, it's the perfect tool. Not going to spend thousands of dollars on flood gear when I only do small private jobs. Better than a wand and faster than a step on flash extractor. Just came back from that job, bone dry after 2 days. Good enough for me.
