Any recommendations for cheap tub vacuums? I've been using Karcher but they have shot up in price.

I used Henrys for years. No bells & whistles. But did the job for me.

Henry's here, just a bit of training to tell them the cable is not stretchy and they've been fine.

It was Henries for us, we had a Henry, George and a Henrietta. great machines but used to attract themselves to door frames and chair/table legs lol. [xmas_grin.gif]

I bought a jet washer from that site, great service and machine although refurbished looked brand new to me and worked perfectly

Henry or Nu-matic both good n cheap. The ESPO special buy has also been well worth the money.

Thought Numatic and Henry are the same thing John? Incidentally i have one of the newer lower wattage ones (500 or 600w) with no " turbo" but it out-sucks any of the old ones , surprisingly.
