My new RotoVac doesn't extract as well as my wand.
Am I doing something wrong?

You are missing the RotoLip glides for it as a start I bet.

Hey, could you fill us in a little? 

 

Is it adjusted so the heads donít stop immediately when turned off but donít run on?

 

When it is off trigger the wand for a moment, lift the heads up, is the spray pattern good or is one or more jets plugged?

 

What psi are you running?

 

If these donít work contact RotoVac, maybe they can help.

 

Let us know

 

CCT, UFT, OCT, CRT, RRT, WRT, SMT, FSRT, JTC, JSR, JWR, MTC a great life, if you don't weaken.

The lack of "AIR-FLOW/CFM" may be your major problem.

Ed is correct. It may be an AIR FLOW/CFM problem. Adding either his Recoil or my glides for it may help you resolve this.

Call Roto-vac and ask them if they know...

But now you have to contend with the cord.  I wonder if RotoVac could make a cordless model?

Yeah, but you get really dizzy running around in the little circles.
