so, based on no response, none of you who bot Rotovacs also have Sapphire?
Like I thought.
cheap wins wins out every time ... almost.
Here's a guy who had all rotovacs but got tired of buying rebuild kits, tried a Sapphire on my suggestion even though more expensive, immediately bought 3 more. "better valve, jets deliver solution more evenly and consistently, solution control valve better protected and not as prone to adjust from movement on the floor."
We had an upholstery tool Floater for you guys consisting of all the better upholstery tools, would have cost you guys next to nothing. For the answers it could have provided you guys it's baffling to me there wasn't more interest in that Floater.
Buy cheap and be done with it ... is hardly ever the answer
In this case I've sold both and heard numerous complaints about Rotovacs yet only 1 complaint* for the Sapphire
* the guy claimed it was defective - I sold the exact tool to the the next guy who wated one and he loved it, so really NO legitimate complaints from the guys using Sapphire's tool.
