OP question
#1
Shocked 
Hello,

I am new to this forum. There is a lot of great info that I have seen here. In the past I have used a CRB machine with Whittaker Crystal Dry and had great results. I am in the process of adding an OP machine for more commercial and residential work. My questions are;

1. When using an OP system with encapsulation chemicals sprayed on the carpet are the pads soaked in water or a chemical before being used? or are the pads and carpet just sprayed with the encapsulation chemicals?

2. What do you soak the OP pads in before use (if you do)?

3. What are the best pads for;
residential cut pile?
berber?
commercial glue down?

My Vacaway sample pack is on its way!!!

Spray. Don't soak.

Pads, microfiber for primary, some cottons for certain situations.

Get glad pads, they're the best. 2nd best are Super zorbs.
I throw my pads in a bucket of water and wring em out than clean.
Cleaning Dude is selling a used Orbot which would be a great machine to start with
Good luck

I agree on equipment. Trinity is really an encap machine first and also can be used as an OPE machine. More extraction? Use more pads. Direct Mop Sales grey pads with scrub strips are my go to with Trinity's, using Glads for more water removal/soil visibility.

With my OP machines, my go to is a Glad pad and perhaps use the above microfiber for a 'pre-scrub' pad.

Trinity machines can do well with a lot of pad choices for given situations.
