If you have been wanting to purchase a Zipper Wand, please get your order in. The price is increasing $200 on every size and model October 1st.
Once I secure over 25K sq ft of open CGD I'm in. Cleans great, drys better than any other tool. I wouldn't buy into the physical ease of the marketing 100%, but that has its place in benefits to a true margin.
It's a quality tool, with the right niche application.
Yeah, it's niche is cleaning carpet. Anywhere you find it.
Man I didn't want to like the zipper as much as I do. Saiger kept on yappin about it. I was kinda hoping to find a bunch of flaws so I could get some imaginary internet street cred. But it is legit. The best made wand I've ever used. Out of the box ready to work.
It is fast. But it will be a bit of a learning curve when it comes to hose management. It's not better or worse than a rotary. Is a hammer better than a screw driver? If it's a trashed residential a rotary will always be what I go to. But I haven't really tried prescrubbing with a 175 and then zipping. The truth is you need both.
When I am using the zipper I definitely get the feeling that I'm doing the best job that I can. Or at least that there is not another HWE wand on the market that would clean any better.
Dry times are great. In fact it's odd. Even with the same flow rate and multiple dry strokes, the zipper shaved roughly an hour off every job I've used it on vs a 2 inch wand. . I'm finishing faster. But maybe being able to see the moisture in the clear sight tube is helping me be more thorough.
At any rate I like it. I like the quality. I like that it was ready to go. (No goofy crooked manifolds).
Its not a miracle tool. But it's pretty darn innovative. If you buy it you will use it.
