Any ideas for a loaner program

Post by Mo on Tue Jul 21, 2015 9:35 pm

Do you guys have any suggestions for the next loaner. I kind of struck out with the devpro and tile wand. Should we wait till it slows down a bit.

How 'bout one of those square SX spinner type cleaners for carpet?

I don't see that working well, but I'm curious.

It's funny you never hear anything about them now?

Maybe you could get Hydro Force to loan one to us, in hopes of selling.....since I think it was a flop, and I'd think they have some around they'd like to unload.

I wanted to do a loaner and CFM test with the silver bullet and dev pro about a year ago but Tom wasn't interested at that time.

I think the CX15 was a bust right out of the gate

I think Hydroforce is Phoenix.

I went Tom site but I didn't see a price for Tom's stainless steel version of the filter. I have always wanted to see which one flowed better. Maybe we could do a group purchase and Dave and Rob could test them with a CFM meter.

Tom, why aren't thou interested in comparing ? I know price point is of a huge difference but if the cfm difference is substantial, I don't see why people aren't going to spend 3 times the amount for better dry times, come on Tom, let's do this.

Devon you could compare cfm with in line filter and waste tank filter. If it's neglible and tank stays clean i would just keep wast tank filter. Kind of nice not having to open waste to clean filters and clean tank though

ya I would run inline filter devon, I think you will see a performance increase on just about any truckmount.

also the inline filters are much easier to monitor/clean

I like to roll with a new liner every 3 jobs about

I use filter liners for a week normally, I don't really see a need to replace them real often if I wash them down daily or more if needed.

After using an inline filter, I wouldn't do it any other way now............just don't use one of those cheap plastic pool filters. What a Face

I don't think they make a cheap pool filter anymore....they are still almost a $100.

Inline filters are just easier to clean out and allows you to monitor the cleaning results. I am always amazed by how much fine gravel I get in a filter liner at the end of the day....there must be a pound of sand every time.

Okay...crap! what inline filter should I buy? the cleanco has primary and secondary filters now....the first one is a cage type basket that is easy to get to....the secondary is two twist in filters that get cleaned weekly...the basket gets done daily. I need a short hose to run to the inline filter? and then hook up my service line to the house correct?

I wish there was a nice clear filter,    not really impressed by the sapphire box it doesnt use liners so its just the mesh your relying on..   not sure but I think with the sapphire you still need a tank filter.   The only thing I like is how you can place it right on the porch so your customers can watch all the crap coming out of their carpets... I think thats a really good little marketing tool


I was almost thinking about using 2 of the 2inch inline filters you can get at interlink,    they arent very nice but clear       2 of those then leading to a Y would be kinda nice

Butler units use a basket filter in the waste tank. It was large, but a pita to pull it out at the end of the day. After cutting my head open on the groomer clips on the ceiling, I ditched the in-tank filter completely.

I love the idea of a filter like the sapphire unit, but that thing tends to leak and having it leak is no good.

There is nothing really wrong with that pool filter if that is what you have Devon. It doesn't flow the best and the baskets are pretty small, but it will help you decide if you like the idea of an inline filter.

My guess is that you will end up liking them greatly.

If you have a SS box, you can get one of the new HF clear filters and take the basket out and place it in the hose run inside the house, makes a awesome big clear view for you and your customers to watch. I have had them just sit in the living room and watch the thing as I clean the bedrooms.
You may need to convert to true 2.0 with cuffs but they make a great sight glass

Well a lot of guys have old Hydro filters that they have left over from going to larger filters and they can make great view tubes because they are a bit bigger than just the little clear tubes, they also POOL a little bit giving more of a visual aid to customers, because they pool they hold a bit of sand too.
They work really good if you already have them and instead of just tossing them.
