Good to hear from you again Kleen1, and I don't think AAA would want to support my box truck either.

Are those high rises over 7 stories? I used to clean a retirement home that was 7 stories and I just dropped my hoses out the windows. It actually increased the vacuum power and the pump had no problem pushing uphill.

As long as you can park right outside the building the hose runs end up being less than 150 feet most of the time.

Some of these buildings are over 12 stories and not close to any parking areas. Some hose runs might be 400 or more feet. My box truck has a hydramaster Titan 875 with about 800 cfm, but I think I would just bring my portable for 4 rooms. If I were doing the buildings hallways, I would use the box truck.

That would be a lot of hose weight hanging from 12 stories, so I would do what you have planned as well.

To bad, they don't do a little bit of planning when they build these places. Just think about it if you put in a couple 2in pipes with access ports on each floor, I bet you guys would probably give a little bit of a price break just not to have the job of dragging so much hose. Say from the 3rd floor and up.

Oh my gosh, I would be so happy to give 50% discount for not having to pull those vac hoses up so many floors, especially considering the other option is portable machine cleaning.
That's a brilliant idea Ed !
