An Unstoppable Cleaning Force: The Sandia Sniper Extractor Series
One of the most popular Sandia products is the Sniper Carpet Extractor. The Sniper is known for its superior performance. The series offers extractors available in both 6 gallon and 12 gallon tank capacities, ranging from 100 to 800 PSI pump rates. The innovative design allows motors to stay cool even in the direst cleaning situations. Heated units are also available (which heat the water up to 198 degrees in under 2 minutes), as well as additional add-on features.
The Snipers’ design combines durability and convenience. Made with a molded polyethylene body that stands up to rough transportation, resists carrion and protects its inner components. The large wheels and molded lifting handles make it easy to move around to various areas of the job site, as well as up and downstairs.
Pro Tip – Keep Your Carpet Extractor Running Strong
Your carpet extractor should be winterized between uses if it is ever exposed to below freezing temperatures. To winterize your machine, pour 1/2 gallon of windshield wiper fluid into the empty solution tank. Aim the spray gun into the solution tank. Run the pump and spray it into the solution tank until the fluid flows from the gun into the tank. Then run 1 gallon of water through the extractor before the next use.
