|The purpose for standing
on the Water Claw is not to "squash" the
carpet and pad to release water, but simply to
facilitate a tight seal between the tool and
the face fibers.
|The water seal against the
bottom plate causes a restriction in airflow,
which maximizes existing suction capabilities
inside the Water Claw suction manifold. This
increased suction not only wants to replace
its negative atmosphere by drawing water into
the vacum chamber, but because of the several
holes placed against the saturated surface,
your vacuum's "sub-surface" flood lifting
power is supercharged in the same way lifting
force is multiplied with a pulley system.
|Because the Water Claw is
not limited to sucking water off the top side
of carpet only, there is no need to use heavy
weights concentrated onto a small area for
extraction results. The Water Claw operator
can be assured that there is no threat of
damaging backing in its vulnerable wet state
or forcing water through wood sub-flooring.
