  • Water Claw® Flood Tool - Large (No Frt. Allowance)

    • Designed for quick and easy flood extraction without removing carpet and pad. Works on all types of carpet with pad, including cut pile and looped/berber.
    • Even in black water floods, the Water Claw Flood Tool helps you by removing more water to easily remove carpet and pad.
    • The Water Claw Flood Tool, combined with drying processes that leave the carpet and pad intact, translate into significantly greater year-end profits.
    • NOTE: Does not offer any advantage in water extraction where there is no pad under the carpet and will not extract water from old-fashioned orange waffle pad.
    • Vacuum tube is made of Lexan for durability and will accept a 1" hose cuff inside and 2" hose cuff outside.
    • The adjustable, waist-high handle easily detaches from tool for storage.
    • The Water Claw reaches all the way into corners and along wall edges for quick and thorough extraction results.
    • Comes in three sizes: Small: 8" x 14", Medium: 10" x 17", Large: 12" x 21".
    • The large size is intended for maximum extraction speed on jobs covering large areas.
    • The medium size is needed by more active restoration companies when doing berber style carpet.

    • A typical 300 square foot area of flooded carpet and pad can be deflooded with the medium-sized tool in less than 30 minutes.

    How Does the Water Claw Work?

    Water Claw Flood Tool
    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.
