what size of jets?
even at 02, he's pretty daring.  That style of wand running 500psi tends to shoot the water into the carpet where it stays.  I did that a few times with the same wand and learned to cut back the pressure.  I'd be very surprised if it was indeed dry in 3 hrs, unless he was running 015 or 01 jets

How big are those water tanks and would they stand up to TM vacuum?
Where did you buy those?

What is the purpose of having such large waste tanks when a portable has auto dump?

The tanks are 40 gal from Cross American.  They are made quite heavy but have no Idea if it would work with TM.  Give Ed Valentine a call...he'd know.  One is a recovery tank and the other a fresh water.  In the picture above I was using auto pump to go to larger tank because I had just done a pretty big commercial building and had no "legal" place close by to pump out to.  In the end I had the 40 gal tank full and the tank on the recoil 3/4 full.  Also, I had vac hose hooked up directly to Recoil because when I am out a 100' you have to pause for a couple seconds when wand hits floor to build up vac pressure.  I was pressed for time so I just went to Recoil and then pumped to aux. tank.  The nice thing about the Recoil is that you have so many options for the way you want to use it.  So far I really like the way it performs.  Thansks for asking

Alexarz,
Sure can.  Two ratchet straps hold it in place on a little jig on the floor to keep it from moving.  No more work than taking any other portable out of a trailer.  The only thing I don't have is mobile heat so I like to keep it in the trailer if at all possible.
