I started my business when the month I got married (35 years ago) the house we were renting had a broken Rinse N Vac in a backyard storage building. I repaired the bad fitting and started cleaning the pest control customers homes I was servicing while working for a local company. looking back I'd say it was by accident that led me to a series of continuous encounters and ideas that just seemed to make sense. Ironically I read an article written by Rob Hanks about how he had begun his business with exactly the same portable extractor and inserted a photo of exactly the unit that launched me. Wierd how small things can launch huge things. Bridgewater Corp had it's roots and The Turbo-Hybrid had it's roots that this guy still uses today.
