    A Carpet Cleaner sent me this reply:

    Heat is still good for the resetting of the carpet fibers which were previously heat-treated at the factory for maximum spring and cushion.

    At the molecular level, the r.o. water is gobbling up minerals and soils because it is starving for them. Did you ever pine after a fine woman? You would do almost anything to be with her. That's how r.o. water pines after soil. Hard water, on the other hand, is satisfied water with no more room for anything else. The only force operating in hard water is the added detergent and the flushing action of the p.s.i.

    So, in the case of r.o. water, you have the vacuum power sucking up water, and the water sucking up (and containing) the soil. It is not for everybody but indeed this "is how it is done downtown".

    So many great gasoline TM's on the market. Now it's time for an electric TM to join the club.

    Finally, someone got it right.

      there are some auto detailers that use RO treated water cause it leaves the vehicle virtually spot free, thus doing a lil better job at the cleaning!
      it can become a tad costly from what i understand cause RO process itself is somewhat wasteful. maybe 70% efficient?

      i recall reading somewhere, i forget, mighta been wiki, or an industry related article, the purified water out the RO process renders the water very acidic, and is corrosive to plumbing and tanks. obviously, i dont think this will apply to rotomolded and pvc!

      at any rate, anything that can improve the clean quality, is worth a shot, even if it means replacing some plumbing time to time!

        RO or Reverse Osmosis Water treatments

        RO water is Reverse Osmosis water treatment. This is a system of super fine water treatment filtering system. The membrane are so tight that it takes a pressure pump to force the water through the filters. The system creates some trash water as it pushes the clean water through the membrane and the water with the trash goes around the filters. Because pushing water through the membrane is hard to do, usually RO water incorporates a fresh tank to accumulate the water. As a carpet cleaner this means prepping the van the night before.

        We are a dealer for all the systems located at

        Question: What to you is the top (3) benefits of using an R.O. System when cleaning Carpet?
        Does a large amount of heat somewhat lose its significance when using an R.O. System?
        Thank-YOU!

        Answer: When using RO Systems:
        1. do not require hardly any chemicals. It is recommended to start off by cutting all your formulas in half. Adjust from there. In theory it is possible to actually use up to 1/5 the amount of chemicals you did with regular water. Over the next 10 years of using the RO machine this is huge amount of savings.
        2. Carpet dries faster and softer
        3. Do not have to descale the carpet machine or truckmount but once a year instead of one a month.
        4. Used in other industries to clean glass, cars, and other hard surfaces streak and water spot free!

          It's actually not R.O. that is high in acidity, but DI water that is from what I was just taught by the Folks at PUMPTEC....

          Thank-YOU Micky!
