It is recommended to use the RR Industrial Low Foam Powder with the machine as it is a tried and tested product for cleaning and also does not create a lot of foam, which is desirable for carpet cleaning.
The instructions for use is to dilute 125g of powder (half a teacup) to 20 liters of water in a bucket. It is important to add the water first and then mix in the powder to prevent lumps which could block the filter of the machine.
The water must then be poured into the machine’s clean water tank that is located at the rear-end of the machine, it is identified by the large rectangular opening with a filter at the bottom.
After the water has been poured the operator may choose to use the Floor- or Handtool. The suction hose may be connected down the bottom of the front-end of the machine, and the other end may be connected to the brass-fitting on the tool to be used.
The suction hose cuff should be pushed over the grey opening at the top of the front of the machine, and the other end should be pushed over the back-opening of the tool to be used.
When fit for use, the machine must be plugged into a power outlet, note that an extension is not desirable as the machine draws a lot of power and may cause the DB-box to latch off due to overcurrent.
When the machine receives power, at the bottom at the bottom of the front of the machine a small orange light will shine to indicate power. Above the orange light is three switches. The first two control each of the vacuum-motors individually, the last switch controls the water pump.
To use in full-force, switch all three switches on. The machine will roar from the two vacuum-motors and the pump will give a few short pumps until the blue water pipe is filled and a pressure switch deactivates the pump.
