250ft of hose, a decent looking black waste tank, a blower and maybe other parts of a hydra master I think

looks like some heat exchangers.

says its a full set up but who knows what works

Looks like it could be the remnants of a 'hot' deal.

The water box on the side of the tank is like one I bought on Ebay. I was thinking of hooking it up to the chemtex to eliminate the extra hot water bypassing and filling up faster but never took the time to figure out how it works.

Yes that would be great Mo, then I would better understand how the system works.  I noticed the new chemtex have a water box.  My old one has to hoses going into the waiste tank and when it gets to hot that where the water goes.  I did 2 small 12x12 rooms on sunday and filled 3/4 of the tank up.  How much water does it take to do a 12x12 room?

The TNT has propane heat so there's no bypass to the water box. Start a new thread in the ask the mechanic forum you might get the The Mechanic and the rest of the pros to help you get the hooked up

Running 350-400psi, I'll usually go threw 10-20 gal of water for about 300 s.f. I use a 6 flow wand.

Is that really a lot of water for 300 sf?..........I thought it was little?

I think that's a lot, my 100 gallon waste tank don't get full with 2000 sq ft of carpets, if it's full in 2400 sq ft, that's not even 10 gallon per 300 sq ft ? But I clean with 2 guys mostly though, so no stopping me when I start cleaning, the wand keep moving and I'm a bit heavy on trigger too, so that makes a big difference, not to mention mine is HX and yours is propane, so I can't say 10 - 20 gallon is not normal Very Happy
Oh, just in case if you want to compare apples to apples, my gauge usually is at 230 degrees when I'm cleaning.

@Brian, was the temp bypass dumping hot water? Was the setting at a lower temp, so it was dumping more often? Cuz to gothru that much water, is way to much.

And here I was thinking I was helping with the drought. Maybe I don't use that much, I'm not really sure since I don't use a fresh water tank.

My temp gauge reads 230-260 now after fixing my heater. wink But I'm not sure if that has anything to do with water use?

Dave, I just realized we're talking about 2 totally different things here, I thought when you said you go THREW 10 - 20 gallons every 300 sq ft, I thought you meant your bypass valve is dumping 10 - 20 gallons every 300 sq ft of carpets.
I just realized you meant you were USING that much water to clean 300 sq ft of carpets.
That's pretty normal I think, and I also use 6 flow jets, I just remembered due to propane you don't have bypass valve, do you ?

Yes, that is correct on both counts. wink

I really don't have a by-pass.
