I've heard that works for airflow. The glide makes it easier to push/pull the wand especially on olefin.

and wreck my wand...lol..
 
all a glide does ...is it stops you from locking on to the carpet the the cfms stay high...
 
I have a wand right now with a crack on the side....I but a nut to keep the crack open....you can hear the cfm's kickin....the carpet seem really dry when I was done....didn't seem to loose any lift
 
so I was wondering...maybe I should drill a hole...like Ken said it stops your relief valve from opening and wasting the good cfm's...

A hole or hybrid glide does improve dry times. We use mostly slot glides because they pick up more debris and we clean quite a few rentals.

Steamer: You are not totally wrong. Before I came up with the glides in 2003, I used to increase airflow by drilling small holes in the wand. I published that article in 2001 on the ICS board. But it has to be done right. I will look it up and post it on this board. Then you will know what to do. It will not work as well as my glides do, BUT if you are not going to use one, then this is the next best thing.
