Hi Derek,

The video makes it look harder than it is. Cut the line, install the bulb, clamp each end with a hose clamp. It is that easy. I installed mine about 4 inches above the pump on my orbot. I would get one where they sell marine engines or buy online. Mine is 4 inches long and black in color. Works Great! I hit the spray button and squeeze the bulb two or three times and the spray comes right back.

Isn't there a quick connect at the base of the hose?

It's hard to disconnect, but I think that works as well....

The easiest way that I've found to prime the sprayborg is to cut the water supply off, hit the trigger for about 3 seconds, turn the water back on and you're in business.

I'm a small business, I can't afford multiple machines, so I've got the Orbot Sprayborg with the weight set. Most versatile machine I've ever had. I've had great success with chemical free stripping, even with build-up or yellow spots with a little trial and error. Carpet cleaning continues to amaze me. I almost exclusively use DS2 (even though I much prefer the smell of DS), with the occasional Punch, and clean things that I didn't think would get clean.

I wish I had the money to buy the Orbot business, I think its one of the most pitifully marketed businesses out there. Awesome machine though!

Cut the supply off using the handle? Or just pull the water line out of the spray bottle?

Just turn the supply off with the handle. As soon as you get blow back in the tank (it bubbles) you're ready to go. Usually 2 to 3 seconds from my experience.

Cimex Carpet machine is the premier Encapsulation machine, but also well suited for cleaning virtually every type of floor surface. I think it is the best commercial carpet cleaning machine out there.

Just reading this post & see that some have done as I do.

IF the jets don't spray, I turn of the solution supply tap mounted down under the tank, hit the trigger for a few seconds.

This blows air up into the solution bottle.

Release trigger, turn tap on, continue cleaning with solution coming out of jets normally.

Never thought to add a primer pump.

I'm slow down under.

Cool
I don't regret my past, I just regret the times I've wasted with the wrong people.
Take me as I am, or watch me as I go.
I'll retire when I can no longer do what I love, or I no longer love what I can do.

I think the only way to strip vct without stripper or chemical, is with spp pads. That can be accomplished with a 175 rotary, or a square scrub or both. I don't think either of the machines you're considering is a good fit for that. Also, it's hard to get one machine to do every application.
