  Gecko 7-foot Extender Hose
Posted by: Charles - 03-18-2020, 02:16 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

Just got my order a few minutes ago. Hooked the hose to my Gecko upholstery machine and connected the other end to my floor wand. Now I have a MINI extractor. It will work great. Thanks Rick and staff.

One of our customers shot this video cleaning a restaurant using Encap-Punch as his pre-spray, and Encap-Clean DS2 in his Cimex. Turned out nice!


  Cimex solution tank problem
Posted by: Lounge Lizards - 01-26-2020, 07:29 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (3)

With the later model solution tank, Houston, I have a problem.

The brass valve that is inserted into the base of the tank, becomes very thin over time.

This then starts to leak as it is cracking finely.

When trying to undue the Shut-off valve, the brass piece finally broke.

I then had to replace the shut-off valve also, as the brass threads were jammed inside.

I was able to squeeze the brass down with my fingers, that’s how thin it got.

LUCKILY, I had a spare tank as it’s IMPOSSIBLE to remove the threaded brass from inside the solution tank.

Glued into the base of the tank is a hex; nut.

The brass “valve”, which is basically a hollow brass pipe which is threaded on the exterior.

This screws into the hex; nut & appears to have been glued in with some substance.

Trying to remove the “valve” will result in more crushing of said “valve”, thereby making a complete tank replacement necessary.

There are then two more hex; nuts screwed onto onto this before it is screwed into the shut-off valve.

I never had this problem with my originCimex tank, only the Trevox  tank.

Any solution??

Shorty

  Cimex cord
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 12-12-2019, 09:57 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

The cord on my cimex machine is twisted, in some places almost knotted. It really slows down my production rate. After each use I would wrap it around the cord holders.
Would there be a remedy for this or do it sound like I need new cord? What did I do wrong?

Would anyone know if there's an encap that will remove pee smell and stains from mattresses?

  Bracket for solution tank on Cimex
Posted by: Lounge Lizards - 12-02-2019, 12:14 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

Hi all, not sure if I've posted these before, anyhow, some newbies that own a Cimex may not have seen them.

In the past week, I've had two people contact me about a problem with their solution tank leaking.

I myself have had the same problem & decided to do something positive about it.

My Old Cimex is an original one, made in the U.K. which I have modified a little bit.

Today, the mod; will be confined to the small metal bracket that (supposedly), supports the solution tank.

I had a new one made up which I fitted & took photos as I was installing the set-up.

All self explanatory, I hope this benefits someone in some small way.

  Padded carpet
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 11-20-2019, 10:29 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

We have a church to clean next week. Some of the carpet is glue down and the carpet in isles are padded. Would I be able to encap whole floor 
with ds2 and punch? Can padded carpeting be encapped using cimex?
