    By request, I thought I would set up this thread where people can get answers to any technical problem they are having with their equipment.Or how it operates and what if anything can be done to make it run better. Many of the posts that I will be putting up will cover some of these areas, but if you cant find it, ask here. I will check this thread daily, and give you the best answer I can if it is not covered elsewhere.Dumbass questions will be ignored so that I can give serious replies that will benefit the greatest number of readers here.Dumbass's; you know who you are.

Ask away.

Network. Fastest way to grow accounts is to join your local Chamber of Commerce and attend regularly. When they know and trust you, they will buy. If your business is residentially based, the fastest way to grow business is to get the business of those that are "Connectors". These are people that have lots of friends and influence other buyers. Get their business and they will do your advertising for you, and it will cost you next to nothing compared to val-pack and other print adds.

More cfms, but not where you want them. You would lower lift and get crappy cleaning instead. The only way to get improved performance from more cfms, is to draw more air thru the carpet face fibers and the back. Best way to do that is still the glide, and enough vacuum lift to overcome resistance to flow at the WCI(wand/carpet Interface).

A glide functions as a relief valve, but where you want it; at the wand. A conventional wand on the carpet locks down to the carpet, cutting off up to 2/3 of the cfms from going into the wand. Even if the blower can pull 300 cfms, only 100 cfms might get into the wand. Because the blower is positive displacement, it MUST pull the other 200 cfms from somewhere else, or your vacuum tank will implode. So it draws it from the vacuum relief instead.2/3 rds from the relief, and only 100 from the wand. This is not good. You waste 2/3 of your gas to power a blower thatis only giving you a 1/3rd of what you are paying for.

A well designed glide changes all that. Because it's broad surface area can NOT LOCK DOWN on the carpet, your wand will now take in up to 200 or even more cfms. That means that the vacuum relief only has to 100 or less cfms now. You are getting most of the airflow you are paying for. Better cleaning and faster drying are yours with 200 cfm or more coming into the wand.Some of my glides flow so much air(250+cfms), that some people tell me the vacuum relief hardly ever opens anymore while they clean. That means nearly ALL cfms go in thru the wand now. exactly what you want to happen. You are paying for the blower to develop the cfms. It only makes sense not to waste them.
