    If you do a lot of commercial....

    If you do a lot of commercial....

    I have the bonzer and it works wonderfully!! But I am tempted on getting the Zipper spinner. Sorry But the Zipper spinner I think is a level above the Bonzer or standard Zipper, The Zipper spinner appears to be the best to use on low cut or short loop pile commercial carpet

    Thermal Relief Please

    That system was designed to never over heat which explains the dumpless to waste tank design. Before you drill into the waste tank and possible weaken it, Id talk to Saphire. I could be wrong but I think the fresh water from garden bib/spigot goes into the thermal well first, it gets pre...
