Can I use a Generator?
--- YES you can! In fact, with the help of a generator, you can go 100% mobile. These steam systems are all electric, full commercial & industrial grade and require no fuel. All you need is a power source be it a wall outlet or a generator. Our 120V version works on a standard household outlet. Same kind you find all over your home if you are in the US.

* VC 4000-C, 72 PSI, 120V = Minimum 3,000+ Watts continuous running watt
. . . . . . (running only 4000-c )

NOTE: If you are going to use the Vapor Rino WITHOUT a vacuum or WITHOUT ANY other devices you may work with smaller generator sizes. MINIMUM sizes with NOTHING Else plugged in are as follows. 120V used alone can run on a 3,000-running watt generator. Bigger is always better. The 230Volt Rino can be run on as little as a 4,500-RUNNING/Continuous watt generator. Bigger is better. NOTE: “Running watts” are not the same as “Peek” or “Surge wattage”. Always buy a generator based on the lesser power rating on the box, often called the “Running” or “Continuous” watts/power output.

READ BELOW TO CLARIFY THIS. VERY IMPORTANT POINT…
Many generators are advertised with their surge power capacity shown in big numbers on the box. These surge powers are only sustainable for very short bursts. You want to know what the actual nonstop RUNNING watts are. The running watts are always lower than the peek surge watts.

IMPORTANT EXAMPLE:
When buying a generator, you might see the box say something like "8000 Watts with 6000 Watts running power". Always look for the lower running / continuous wattage output number. Do not accept the first number you read when buying a generator. Read closer. Running any electronic device on an under powered generator will damage the circuitry! Get the right generator and you are good to go.

IPORTANT NOTE:
When picking a generator for our 230V system (ignore the following if you are getting a 120V steamer) we recommend getting one that has the 240-volt outlet in the form of a 4-prong twist lock. This outlet number type is a NEMA “L14-30”. There is an adaptor available on Amazon that works great with the Vapor Rino. (See 230v specifications on the 230v page for a link to this adaptor) This plug takes the 4 prong L14-30 and reduces it down to a 3 prong 6-20/15R. These American NEMA 6-15 three prong adaptors match the plug on the 230V Vapor Rino. If you are buying a 120V system, you can ignore this information. You can find a link to the Amazon page on the specifications tab on the 230V Vapor Rino page.

Why buy a bigger generator with higher running watts?
Several reasons. Fist, this gives you some room for error and offers more protection to your steam cleaner investment. Example: If you had a 2000 W generator running an 1800W machine that generator would be running at almost 100% capacity all the time. The generator will run hard and hot, make more noise, wear out much faster and risk sending electrical spikes and surges into your new commercial steam cleaner. This may damage the system electronics. This kind of DAMAGE can be repaired but it IS NOT UNDER WARANTY. Also, if someone unknowingly plugs something else into your generator having a higher wattage generator gives you a safety margin protecting both your machines and your generator. Remember, an over taxed generator WILL burn out fast and may damage electronics. Our warranty does not cover damage created by a generator or improper use. Always use appropriate, well tested power source. This is not a corner to cut.
Can I Get a 230V Steam Cleaner?
Yes, on some systems like our 145psi Vapor Rino. See our products page for more info. Our 230V versions are amazing boasting recovery times of as little as 20 to 30 seconds. They hold around 90 PSI during extended nonstop use and bounce back to 145 PSI very quickly! More steam = more power = faster cleaning times. We now have a converter that gives you INSTANT 230 Volts from two household outlets. See menu for converter.
What is the PSI or BARS of pressure it produces?
1) PSI: Stands for POUNDS PER SQUARE INCH, its a measurement of pressure.

2) BARS: Is the European systems to measure pressure. Each BAR is = to 14.5 PSI. Example, 10 Bars = 145 PSI.

3) Most of our units come with gauges that show both PSI and Bars

We offer various units for sale. Our large VR145 Vapor Rino commercial vapor steam cleaner produces 145 PSI (10 bars) Maximum pressure. America's most powerful 120Volt all electric, chemical injected vapor steam cleaner as of 2015! We have other systems that are 5.5 bars or 80 PSI. Check individual product pages for specific specifications for each product or give us a call!
What does GPH or GPM mean?

* GPH Stands for Gallons Per HOUR of water used.

* GPM Stand for Gallons Per MINUTE of water used.
230 Volt or 120 Volt??? -- Help Me Choose Please - Some Points To Consider...
Either choice is a winner! The Vapor Rino 145 is king in the both the 120 volt and 230 volt all electric dry vapor, commercial steam cleaner class. No matter which unit you get, you are getting the best of the best. Maximum PSI is exactly the same in both units. That said the units perform differently. The 230 V has over twice times the output of the 120V. We now have a converter available that lets you turn two 115V household outlets into 230 Volts instantly. See Instant 230 Volt Converter page.

The "Magic" Box: Let’s talk about this converter for a moment. All the power of a 230 volt Rino off of two 115 Volt Outlets??? Our unique light weight converter essentially allows you to run our 230V Vapor Rino's on standard house hold 115 or 120 Volt outlets! Amazing but true. By plugging into two independent outlets you can combine one 115V outlet to another 115V outlet and get 230 Volts instantly. Our systems make having and using a HIGH POWERED STEAMER Easy. Learn more about our 230V converter and how it works on the converter page. See products menu.

Shared Features: Both the 120V & the 230V have the same peek 145 PSI (10 Bars), and feature adjustable steam and chemical feed flow control. Both are the same size, weight, come with a 12 foot long hose & gun. One exception is the 230V version comes with an EXTRA LONG 26 foot main steam hose - awesome! They also have the same large 50 pc. accessory package. Sitting side by side you cannot tell one from the other. So what are the main differences? Let’s take a closer look...

120V = Maximum Portability. Though both VR commercial steam cleaners are the same size and weight, the 120V gives you more flexibility when it comes to where you can use it. Why? Simply because you can plug it into any standard household outlet. Running at just under 15 amps, it will work in your home, office or anywhere you can find a working 120V outlet. This flexibility makes the 120V Vapor Rino a very popular choice of among our customers. There is no doubt, the 120V version is very popular. See the 120V page here

230V = More than twice as powerful! The added power of the 230V system means it can handle a LONGER HOSE up to 26 feet long. The 230 volt system heats up close to 3 times faster than the 120V and has about 8 times faster recovery rate of a 120V! More below. A simple rule of thumb is this: If you have or can get a place to plug the 230-volt in, strongly consider getting the 230-volt Vapor Rino Vapor commercial Steam cleaner System. If you can arrange to have an outlet installed or if you have a strong enough generator (5,500+ running watts) OR if you want to use our instant 230V dual cord device consider getting the 230V version. If you can plug it in it is fantastic. Because of their raw power our 230V units are very popular among professional users. See the 230V Rino page for more information.

The 230 Volt version is truly an amazing commercial vapor steam cleaner. Approaching three times the overall vapor steam cleaner output over the 120 Volt version, the 230V, 145 PSI Vapor system is sure to impress. If you have ever worked with an all-electric 120 volt vapor steam cleaner of ANY brand one of the first things you notice is that the pressure drops quickly during use. There is no way a 120 volt, all electric, vapor steam cleaner can keep up with steam production like a 230 volt can. It just can’t happen All 120V, all electric vapor steam cleaners on the market drop down in pressure during use. That doesn't mean they are not good machines; it simply means they just don’t have the same staying power. This is normal for any all-electric 120V system. The all electric 230V generates more than TWICE the steam and can maintain approximately 100 PSI during normal use with lightning fast recovery to 145 PSI!

That being said, as a contractor, I personally used a 120 volt vapor steam cleaner for years with great success. My first unit ever was the VC 4000-S commercial steam cleaner. Similar, yet smaller than our 4000-C system. It had 65 PSI and 1600 watts with a single tank. I loved it. The Vapor Rino VR145, VC 5000-Ci and our other 120 Volt systems are light years ahead of my beloved first steamer. Now that I have tasted the quality and power of a Vapor Rino, there is no going back to my old 65 PSI unit. At either 120V or 230V, the 145 PSI, chemical injected Vapor Rino's are fantastic, high quality machines.

Quick Definition: I have 220V not 230V, what do I do?
Great question. In the USA, there is a common voltage range that all means basically the same thing. Vapor Rino 230V can plug into outlets that range from 210V, 220V, 230V, 240 and even max 250 Volt outlets. Its a lot like standard household voltage most commonly called 120 Volts. This class typically ranges from 110 volts to 120+ volts. So, if you have access to, or can get access to a 240V outlet, 230V outlet or a 220V power source, no worries, you are good to go.

PROS & CONS
120 Volt Systems:
• Warm up time is only about 15 minutes. • Recovery time is about 4 minutes. You can plug a 120 Volt Vapor Rino into any standard American outlet. So, if you're at your mom's house or at the office, no worries. Just plug it in, warm it up and get to work. There is no doubt that the 120 volt version is very convenient. Warm up time from ice cold to ready is about 15 minutes. The 120 Volt version will produce the same peek 145 PSI pressure as the 230 Volt version but it will not maintain as much steam or recover as fast. Recovery time on the 120V is about 4 minutes. Other than the power and steam generation difference, the machines have the same basic features, come with the same accessories, and are the same size and shape.

PROS & CONS
230 Volt Systems:
• The 230 Volt 145 PSI Vapor Rino’s Warm up time is only about 5-7 minutes from ice cold!!! The 120v takes about 15 min. The 230Volt Rino maintains around 90 to 100 PSI even after 5 minutes of typical heavy steaming. Let go of the trigger and in about 30 to 60 seconds later you have full recovery to 145 PSI • Recovery time is super-fast, about 8 times the recovery rate of the 120 Volt system. The 230V system can handle (and comes with) a LONGER STEAM HOSE of 26 feet long. There are really no cons to the 230 except one. So let's address that now. The only down side to a 230 Volt Version of the Vapor Rino Commercial Vapor Steam Cleaner is that you have to have access to a 230 Volt outlet. It's that simple. You can use a generator (see generator section) or your shops 230 volt outlet or our Quick220 dual 120v converter to power it up. You can also have an outlet installed at your location. Having an electrician install a single outlet is usually very inexpensive. Check out our instant 230Volt in home converter page.

See our generator info in the FAQ or Common Questions section of this page for more on picking a generator. Do Not use an underpowered generator. Make sure you pick the right size and it has the right outlet.

230 Volt PROS: Power, More Power and did we mention more power? Oh yeah, and a massive hose length of 26 feet! Yep, it is a simple choice if you have the ability to use it. 230 Volts is simply the best option if you want maximum steam generation power. Also, the heat up time from cold to hot is only about 5+ minutes rather than 15+ minutes, recovery rate is 30 to 60 seconds as opposed to 4 minutes with the 120 volt Vapor Rino. As you can see from those numbers, we are talking about at least 3 times the steam generation capabilities.

Both units are great. For me, I like the 120 Volt version just because I can use it anywhere, anytime, running off of an everyday outlet. If I were in the mobile detail business, a cleaning contractor with a lot of jobs lined up or a carwash expecting to do a lot of work I would probably get the 230 Volt Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner. It all depends upon my access to a 230 volt power source and how fast I need to get the job done.

The choice is yours, both are cutting edge industry leading systems. The good news, unlike most systems on the market we give you a choice! Choice is power. Thanks for reading. Work Hard, Live Free!
Dry CAR WASH & AUTO DETAILING -- is this a good machine for this?
MOBILE DRY CAR WASH & AUTO DETAILING = YES!

Absolutely! The Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner is perfect for this kind of work! The mobile dry carwash industry is becoming very popular as more and more cities impose water restrictions. From its high power to its fully adjustable chemical and hot water injection system this machine is fantastic for this industry.

Purchase a 230 Volt version and provide you and your customers a faster service. The 230 Volt version generates about three times as much steam per minute then the 120 Volt version. This means you can clean faster than ever before.

The steam flow is 100% adjustable! This means you can easily lower the steam flow for delicate interior automotive detail work. Be it a exterior carwash, interior detailing, cleaning sticky gunk out of cup holders, around seat bolts, door jams or cleaning tires and engines. The Vapor Rino 145 PSI Chemical Injected high powered commercial vapor steam cleaner.
TILE & GROUT: Is this a good system for cleaning Tile & Grout?
Absolutely! The Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner is an excellent TILE and GROUT cleaner. In most instances it does an amazing job clearing floor grout and mopping all kinds of hard surface floors. The Vapor Rino is a great all around cleaning service vapor steam cleaner.

Years ago I ran a bathroom renewal company. One of our services was cleaning residential and commercial floor grout. Using the grout brush and the extension poles (included) we would work the grout lines and in most cases, the floor was restored to close to new. For smaller jobs we charged by the job but in most cases we charged by the square foot. Back when I was doing it we were charging $2 a square foot. You will have to call around and get an idea on price in your local market.

The Vapor Rino, or one of our other commercial dry vapor steam cleaners do a fantastic job cleaning floor grout. This is a great service you can offer to your existing clients. What? You are an auto detailer,, how can you offer grout cleaning? Just make a brochure or flier and hand it to your customers. You will be surprised at how many people have tile floors that need updating. Good money, easy work and its a fast and easy to boost your income. While you're at it, you can clean your own tile and grout at home :)

Unlike the expensive truck mount tile and grout cleaning machines a Vapor Rino costs less and is MUCH more flexible. Try running a truck mount hose up to the 4th floor of a home or building. It's just not going to happen. On the other hand, you can take one of Vapor Rino's commercial vapor steam cleaners anywhere. 40th floor? no problem. Just bring it up and plug it in. 100% portable and effective!

Wow, two industrial grade units, twice the dependability and more flexibility in use for close to the same price? YES, enter Vapor Rino! Our hoses are detachable and replaceable.

Common Questions
About
The VC 4000-C (also know as the VS 900) is a Fantastic machine for the automotive detailing business and for a mobile dry car wash. With dry steam only or in combination with the hot water injection it does a great job cleaning the exterior of cars. Simply open the car door and without switching machines you can begin detailing the entire inside of the car. Great on leather seats! You auto detailers will love this, horse hair brushes available in 3" triangle and 1" detail brush sizes!
.
Portable and ready when you are the ultra portable VS 900 Mobile ((Also Called the 5000-Ci)) gets the job done! Running off of a standard household 115 volt outlet it has NO special power requirements and it does not require the use of fossil fuels unlike some of those other excessively high priced dry car wash machine running upwards of $6000. This means you can use our world class commercial vapor steam cleaner outdoors & indoors even in your own living room! Yes, you can clean cars inside of a dealership showroom even during business hours. No fumes, No odors No emissions just pure sanitary vapor steam! Want to go 100% mobile or off grid? No problem, just connect our system to a generator and you are free to clean anywhere. You should be able to use a quality generator with minimum of 3000 running watts and peek power even higher. That being said we strongly recommend a generator with 4000 running watts of running power or more. Did we mention its amazing low water usage? This unit uses just over 1 gallon of water per whole hour of NON STOP steaming! Perfect for cleaning cars during drought and in water restricted zones. Never does even one drop of water have to hit the ground! ZERO WATER WASTE!
.
Viper Hot or VS 4000-c? Whats the main differences between the Viper Hot Auto Wash and this VS 900 Water Injection unit? Lets compare. This system draws its hot water injection from the boiler. The Viper Hot gets it from an external tank or the boiler depending upon the button you push. This external tanks is an advantage as it doesn't touch your boilers water level. Second, this unit can only inject water and dry vapor steam. The Viper Hot has the ability to inject water or hot soap and of course, dry vapor steam. Other than those two primary differences they are very similar in performance and function.
.
The VC 4000-C Mobile, hot water injected, continuous fill commercial steam cleaner is fantastic in the Janitorial business and great for applications such as cleaning floor grout, tile & hard surfaces. It makes a great steam mop for hardwood, tile & linoleum. Great for cleaning sinks, toilets, commercial cooking equipment, degreasing parts and much much more. The automotive detail industry had recently discovered dry vapor steam and it is a runaway hit. Phrases like "I don't know how I ever worked without one" and "vapor steam is a MUST have item to detail cars" are popping up all over the place. Why? Simple, there is no better detail cleaning device on the planet! With that said, the 4000-C blows the competition away. It has higher PSI, higher wattage AND Hot water injection ON DEMAND! Most on the market offer lower pressure, low wattage and no injection system. Combine that with the continuous flow dual take steam generation system AND the insanely low price we were able to negotiate for the 4000-C, is the only choice on the market that makes sense for the budget conscious professional consumer.

I just got my Vapor Rino last month. It came in the mail fast. At first I was confused about the injections system so I called the 800 number. I got through to a real person! James was very very helpful and got me up and running in a few minutes. So far my steamer has been even better than expected. Thank you Jon.

I had my 120v for almost two years & it is still going strong. Frankly, one of the best purchases I have ever made for my detail business. It has massively cut down the amount of time it takes me to do a car interior. I am seriously debating getting a 230v rino. I can only imagine how much more powerful that thing must have! Thanks, Steve from UT

This was my first time buying a steamer. The whole thing has been a pleasure. The guy on the phone answered all my questions and was full of good information. I’ve had my 5000Ci unit for almost two years and its my baby. I use it at my shop cleaning my store as well as at my house. Soda taps, sticky stuff, refrigerators and just all over my store it works well.  I think people are missing out. From what I can tell most people have never even used a vapor cleaner. My advice, consider getting one. Thanks for the fast shipment and great support. Its been a pleasure working with you over the years.  Chung L, CO

I’m using my Vapor Rino around the house. The 120v is light years ahead of my other steamer in every way. The quality of build, the high-end accessories and how easy it rolls around the house make it truly exceptional. Works amazing my stainless barbecue grill, floor grout and as a natural sanitize. I just wanted to write you to thank you. I absolutely love my steamer. Either my wife or I use it almost every weekend. Its just so easy to flip the switch and get to it. Frankly, it looks beautiful as well, just my opinion.  Thank you, Joseph N, WY

I bought a 4000C in 2012 and its been real good to me. I saw your newer 3in1 Vapor Rino’s and decided to get it based on my experience with the unit I have. So far, I’m very happy. The power difference is huge over the one I have. I had a problem setting up but I called you guys and you got me straightened out in a matter of minutes. It is now 2019 and I’ve been using my new Rino for about 4 years and its solid. I highly recommend it; it took my business to another level.  I’ll probably be ordering the 230v Rino soon, I can’t wait to check out the power difference and the 26’ hose. For the record, I use it for detailing cars and trucks. That’s my main business and on the side, I do some commercial kitchen cleaning and residential work. No doubt, this thing has more than paid for itself.   Carlos R. AZ

We are a reglazing company and were looking to expand. With that I got the 4000-c steamer with many doubts but I have to tell you. Vapor steam really works for us, especially on floor grout. I have a lot of residential customers so we booked our first job one week after getting the unit. We made $1,300 dollars grout cleaning 5 rooms in one house. It took one full work day. I’m glad I spoke to James over there, he is the real deal. He has actually used these machines as a contractor. Coming from someone that has actually been on job sites, the advice helped a lot.  Thanks for everything. Joe

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. You were very helpful. So far its been a year and my 4000 works great. It was easy to get going. I took it out of the box, filled it with water, plugged it in and turned it on. After a few minutes I was off and cleaning. I tried it on everything, haven’t had that much fun cleaning in years lol. I love the steam gun and the attachments are far better than my old plastic steamer. Oh yeah, & thanks for the fast delivery! Karen, TX

I did a lot of research before I decided on the VR145. I came close to buying one of those $8k steamer and even considered the cheap one on the market. All I can say is after getting it, I'm sold! It’s the best thing to ever happen to my detail shop. I lost my main steam hose, called James and he had one in the mail the same day. Good stuff!  5 stars from me. Alberto, OR

Thanks, your service is outstanding. You answered all my questions, the steamer came on time and most importantly, it works better than expected. I will never again buy a cheap knock off. I mean the accessories, gun type and performance compared to your lower price competitor is remarkable. Sadly, I bought theirs first thinking I was saving.  6 months in, my new Vapor Rino is the clear winner. Emir, NM

I love my 4000S steamer, I use it almost EVERY DAY! I have told all of my friends about it and convinced 2 to order. One of them got the bigger 4000C and they love it as much as I love mine and after trying hers I’m a bit jealous. I was looking for an eco-friendly way to clean. I'm trying to remove as many toxic chemicals from my routine as possible. This is the perfect solution. Anyway, thank you for your help on the phone. I adore my steamer! Best wishes, Jennifer OH

Man, makes my old steamer look like a toy. I got the 230 Volt Rino and it is amazing. I had one of those amazon specials. It worked some but nothing like this!!! I cant say enough. I love that bad ass long main hose and the extraction kit is a good deal. So it is doing a better job on the upholstery than my expensive hot water extractor.  Thank you, ChevKock from CA

This was my first time buying a steamer. The whole thing has been a pleasure. The guy on the phone answered all my questions and was full of good information. I’ve had my 5000Ci unit for almost two years and its my baby. I use it at my shop cleaning my store as well as at my house. Soda taps, sticky stuff, refrigerators and just all over my store it works well.  I think people are missing out. From what I can tell most people have never even used a vapor cleaner.

I’m using my Vapor Rino around the house. The 120v is light years ahead of my other steamer in every way. The quality of build, the high-end accessories and how easy it rolls around the house make it truly exceptional. Works amazing my stainless barbecue grill, floor grout and as a natural sanitize. I just wanted to write you to thank you. I absolutely love my steamer. Either my wife or I use it almost every weekend. Its just so easy to flip the switch and get to it. Frankly, it looks beautiful as well, just my opinion.  Thank you, Joseph N, WY

I bought a 4000C in 2012 and its been real good to me. I saw your newer 3in1 Vapor Rino’s and decided to get it based on my experience with the unit I have. So far, I’m very happy. The power difference is huge over the one I have. I had a problem setting up but I called you guys and you got me straightened out in a matter of minutes. It is now 2019 and I’ve been using my new Rino for about 4 years and its solid. I highly recommend it; it took my business to another level.  I’ll probably be ordering the 230v Rino soon, I can’t wait to check out the power difference and the 26’ hose. For the record, I use it for detailing cars and trucks. That’s my main business and on the side, I do some commercial kitchen cleaning and residential work. No doubt, this thing has more than paid for itself.   Carlos R. AZ

We are a reglazing company and were looking to expand. With that I got the 4000-c steamer with many doubts but I have to tell you. Vapor steam really works for us, especially on floor grout. I have a lot of residential customers so we booked our first job one week after getting the unit. We made $1,300 dollars grout cleaning 5 rooms in one house. It took one full work day. I’m glad I spoke to James over there, he is the real deal. He has actually used these machines as a contractor. Coming from someone that has actually been on job sites, the advice helped a lot.  Thanks for everything. Joe

Good system over all. I was a little disappointed that I had to wait for the VR145 because it was on back order. They did tell me this before I ordered but I don’t like to wait. I think when you want a product of this caliber and price it should be ready to ship at all times.  That said, now that I finally got it my guys like it. It is making fast work of the upholstery and the over all detailing of the car. I have to admit, though I was a bit frustrated waiting, it was worth it. Its vastly better than my cheap M…. unit I got. That little unit is what got me into steam. Now that we have the Vapor Rino, there is no going back to our old methods.  Thanks for the help on the phone the other day.

I own a larger variety of steamers and extractors I have used over the years. I have a ton of cheap models that now have either failed or now just sit in the background. Hands down Rino has the best accessories I have ever used. The continuous fill system makes working easier and the power is unmatched. These machines are simply now our GO-TO steamers. I absolutely like the Vapor Rino model. Steam makes so many jobs easier when auto detailing. Having used so many different machines, it is now clear the right steamer with the right accessories makes a HUGE difference. Your Vapor Rino is that difference. Regards, Harry N. NM

Thanks for the fast shipment. As I discussed with you on the phone, I have one of those $8,000 diesel units. First off, it was expensive. Second, its VERY heavy. Now that I got the Vapor Rino 230 Volt I can see the differences. And here it is,,, I don’t use the big diesel unit now that I have this much more portable Rino. I just love the accessories, power and ease of use. The big unit has few accessories, your system has everything I could possibly need. I use it for upholstery, plastics, car exteriors, rims and the engines. We do mechanic work as well, and I found one of my guys using the machine for cleaning engine parts in the shop. I will probably sell my more expensive diesel fired unit and get another Vapor Rino shortly. Thanks for your honest advice. I’m glad I got one. Jacob L WA.

The VS900-C (also know as the VC 4000-C) is a Fantastic machine for the automotive detailing business and for a mobile dry car wash. With dry steam only or in combination with the hot water injection it does a great job cleaning the exterior of cars. Simply open the car door and without switching machines you can begin detailing the entire inside of the car. Great on leather seats! You auto detailers will love this, horse hair brushes available in 3" triangle and 1" detail brush sizes!
.
Portable and ready when you are the ultra portable VS 900 Mobile ((Also Called the 5000-Ci)) gets the job done! Running off of a standard household 115 volt outlet it has NO special power requirements and it does not require the use of fossil fuels unlike some of those other excessively high priced dry car wash machine running upwards of $6000. This means you can use our world class commercial vapor steam cleaner outdoors & indoors even in your own living room! Yes, you can clean cars inside of a dealership showroom even during business hours. No fumes, No odors No emissions just pure sanitary vapor steam! Want to go 100% mobile or off grid? No problem, just connect our system to a generator and you are free to clean anywhere. You should be able to use a quality generator with minimum of 3000 running watts and peek power even higher. That being said we strongly recommend a generator with 4000 running watts of running power or more. Did we mention its amazing low water usage? This unit uses just over 1 gallon of water per whole hour of NON STOP steaming! Perfect for cleaning cars during drought and in water restricted zones. Never does even one drop of water have to hit the ground! ZERO WATER WASTE!
.
Viper Hot or VS 900? Whats the main differences between the Viper Hot Auto Wash and this VS 900 Water Injection unit? Lets compare. This system draws its hot water injection from the boiler. The Viper Hot gets it from an external tank or the boiler depending upon the button you push. This external tanks is an advantage as it doesn't touch your boilers water level. Second, this unit can only inject water and dry vapor steam. The Viper Hot has the ability to inject water or hot soap and of course, dry vapor steam. Other than those two primary differences they are very similar in performance and function.
.
The VS-900-C Mobile, hot water injected, continuous fill commercial steam cleaner is fantastic in the Janitorial business and great for applications such as cleaning floor grout, tile & hard surfaces. It makes a great steam mop for hardwood, tile & linoleum. Great for cleaning sinks, toilets, commercial cooking equipment, degreasing parts and much much more. The automotive detail industry had recently discovered dry vapor steam and it is a runaway hit. Phrases like "I don't know how I ever worked without one" and "vapor steam is a MUST have item to detail cars" are popping up all over the place. Why? Simple, there is no better detail cleaning device on the planet! With that said, the VS-900-C blows the competition away. It has higher PSI, higher wattage AND Hot water injection ON DEMAND! Most on the market offer lower pressure, low wattage and no injection system. Combine that with the continuous flow dual take steam generation system AND the insanely low price we were able to negotiate for the VS 900-C, is the only choice on the market that makes sense for the budget conscious professional consumer.

Can I use a Generator?
--- YES you can! In fact, with the help of a generator, you can go 100% mobile. These steam systems are all electric, full commercial & industrial grade and require no fuel. All you need is a power source be it a wall outlet or a generator. Our 120V version works on a standard household outlet. Same kind you find all over your home if you are in the US.
PICK A MODEL ...


--- GENERATOR SIZE RECOMMENDATIONS

* 230V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 6,000+ Watts continuous running power
. . . . . . (with a vacuum on at the same time as the Rino)

* 230V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 4,500+ Watts continuous running power
. . . . . . (running only the Vapor Rino, no other tools plugged in)



* 120V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 4,500+ Watts continuous running watt
. . . . . . (with a vacuum on at the same time as the Rino)

* 120V Vapor Rino 145 PSI = Minimum 3,000+ Watts continuous running watt
. . . . . . (running only the Vapor Rino, no other tools plugged in)



* VC 5000-Ci, 72 PSI, 120V = Minimum 3,000+ Watts continuous running watt
. . . . . . (running only 5000-ci)

* VC 4000-C, 72 PSI, 120V = Minimum 3,000+ Watts continuous running watt
. . . . . . (running only 4000-c )

NOTE: If you are going to use the Vapor Rino WITHOUT a vacuum or WITHOUT ANY other devices you may work with smaller generator sizes. MINIMUM sizes with NOTHING Else plugged in are as follows. 120V used alone can run on a 3,000-running watt generator. Bigger is always better. The 230Volt Rino can be run on as little as a 4,500-RUNNING/Continuous watt generator. Bigger is better. NOTE: “Running watts” are not the same as “Peek” or “Surge wattage”. Always buy a generator based on the lesser power rating on the box, often called the “Running” or “Continuous” watts/power output.

READ BELOW TO CLARIFY THIS. VERY IMPORTANT POINT…
Many generators are advertised with their surge power capacity shown in big numbers on the box. These surge powers are only sustainable for very short bursts. You want to know what the actual nonstop RUNNING watts are. The running watts are always lower than the peek surge watts.

IMPORTANT EXAMPLE:
When buying a generator, you might see the box say something like "8000 Watts with 6000 Watts running power". Always look for the lower running / continuous wattage output number. Do not accept the first number you read when buying a generator. Read closer. Running any electronic device on an under powered generator will damage the circuitry! Get the right generator and you are good to go.

IPORTANT NOTE:
When picking a generator for our 230V system (ignore the following if you are getting a 120V steamer) we recommend getting one that has the 240-volt outlet in the form of a 4-prong twist lock. This outlet number type is a NEMA “L14-30”. There is an adaptor available on Amazon that works great with the Vapor Rino. (See 230v specifications on the 230v page for a link to this adaptor) This plug takes the 4 prong L14-30 and reduces it down to a 3 prong 6-20/15R. These American NEMA 6-15 three prong adaptors match the plug on the 230V Vapor Rino. If you are buying a 120V system, you can ignore this information. You can find a link to the Amazon page on the specifications tab on the 230V Vapor Rino page.

Why buy a bigger generator with higher running watts?
Several reasons. Fist, this gives you some room for error and offers more protection to your steam cleaner investment. Example: If you had a 2000 W generator running an 1800W machine that generator would be running at almost 100% capacity all the time. The generator will run hard and hot, make more noise, wear out much faster and risk sending electrical spikes and surges into your new commercial steam cleaner. This may damage the system electronics. This kind of DAMAGE can be repaired but it IS NOT UNDER WARANTY. Also, if someone unknowingly plugs something else into your generator having a higher wattage generator gives you a safety margin protecting both your machines and your generator. Remember, an over taxed generator WILL burn out fast and may damage electronics. Our warranty does not cover damage created by a generator or improper use. Always use appropriate, well tested power source. This is not a corner to cut.
Can I Get a 230V Steam Cleaner?
Yes, on some systems like our 145psi Vapor Rino. See our products page for more info. Our 230V versions are amazing boasting recovery times of as little as 20 to 30 seconds. They hold around 90 PSI during extended nonstop use and bounce back to 145 PSI very quickly! More steam = more power = faster cleaning times. We now have a converter that gives you INSTANT 230 Volts from two household outlets. See menu for converter.
What is the PSI or BARS of pressure it produces?
1) PSI: Stands for POUNDS PER SQUARE INCH, its a measurement of pressure.

2) BARS: Is the European systems to measure pressure. Each BAR is = to 14.5 PSI. Example, 10 Bars = 145 PSI.

3) Most of our units come with gauges that show both PSI and Bars

We offer various units for sale. Our large VR145 Vapor Rino commercial vapor steam cleaner produces 145 PSI (10 bars) Maximum pressure. America's most powerful 120Volt all electric, chemical injected vapor steam cleaner as of 2015! We have other systems that are 5.5 bars or 80 PSI. Check individual product pages for specific specifications for each product or give us a call!
What does GPH or GPM mean?

* GPH Stands for Gallons Per HOUR of water used.

* GPM Stand for Gallons Per MINUTE of water used.
230 Volt or 120 Volt??? -- Help Me Choose Please - Some Points To Consider...
Either choice is a winner! The Vapor Rino 145 is king in the both the 120 volt and 230 volt all electric dry vapor, commercial steam cleaner class. No matter which unit you get, you are getting the best of the best. Maximum PSI is exactly the same in both units. That said the units perform differently. The 230 V has over twice times the output of the 120V. We now have a converter available that lets you turn two 115V household outlets into 230 Volts instantly. See Instant 230 Volt Converter page.

The "Magic" Box: Let’s talk about this converter for a moment. All the power of a 230 volt Rino off of two 115 Volt Outlets??? Our unique light weight converter essentially allows you to run our 230V Vapor Rino's on standard house hold 115 or 120 Volt outlets! Amazing but true. By plugging into two independent outlets you can combine one 115V outlet to another 115V outlet and get 230 Volts instantly. Our systems make having and using a HIGH POWERED STEAMER Easy. Learn more about our 230V converter and how it works on the converter page. See products menu.

Shared Features: Both the 120V & the 230V have the same peek 145 PSI (10 Bars), and feature adjustable steam and chemical feed flow control. Both are the same size, weight, come with a 12 foot long hose & gun. One exception is the 230V version comes with an EXTRA LONG 26 foot main steam hose - awesome! They also have the same large 50 pc. accessory package. Sitting side by side you cannot tell one from the other. So what are the main differences? Let’s take a closer look...

120V = Maximum Portability. Though both VR commercial steam cleaners are the same size and weight, the 120V gives you more flexibility when it comes to where you can use it. Why? Simply because you can plug it into any standard household outlet. Running at just under 15 amps, it will work in your home, office or anywhere you can find a working 120V outlet. This flexibility makes the 120V Vapor Rino a very popular choice of among our customers. There is no doubt, the 120V version is very popular. See the 120V page here

230V = More than twice as powerful! The added power of the 230V system means it can handle a LONGER HOSE up to 26 feet long. The 230 volt system heats up close to 3 times faster than the 120V and has about 8 times faster recovery rate of a 120V! More below. A simple rule of thumb is this: If you have or can get a place to plug the 230-volt in, strongly consider getting the 230-volt Vapor Rino Vapor commercial Steam cleaner System. If you can arrange to have an outlet installed or if you have a strong enough generator (5,500+ running watts) OR if you want to use our instant 230V dual cord device consider getting the 230V version. If you can plug it in it is fantastic. Because of their raw power our 230V units are very popular among professional users. See the 230V Rino page for more information.

The 230 Volt version is truly an amazing commercial vapor steam cleaner. Approaching three times the overall vapor steam cleaner output over the 120 Volt version, the 230V, 145 PSI Vapor system is sure to impress. If you have ever worked with an all-electric 120 volt vapor steam cleaner of ANY brand one of the first things you notice is that the pressure drops quickly during use. There is no way a 120 volt, all electric, vapor steam cleaner can keep up with steam production like a 230 volt can. It just can’t happen All 120V, all electric vapor steam cleaners on the market drop down in pressure during use. That doesn't mean they are not good machines; it simply means they just don’t have the same staying power. This is normal for any all-electric 120V system. The all electric 230V generates more than TWICE the steam and can maintain approximately 100 PSI during normal use with lightning fast recovery to 145 PSI!

That being said, as a contractor, I personally used a 120 volt vapor steam cleaner for years with great success. My first unit ever was the VC 4000-S commercial steam cleaner. Similar, yet smaller than our 4000-C system. It had 65 PSI and 1600 watts with a single tank. I loved it. The Vapor Rino VR145, VC 5000-Ci and our other 120 Volt systems are light years ahead of my beloved first steamer. Now that I have tasted the quality and power of a Vapor Rino, there is no going back to my old 65 PSI unit. At either 120V or 230V, the 145 PSI, chemical injected Vapor Rino's are fantastic, high quality machines.

Quick Definition: I have 220V not 230V, what do I do?
Great question. In the USA, there is a common voltage range that all means basically the same thing. Vapor Rino 230V can plug into outlets that range from 210V, 220V, 230V, 240 and even max 250 Volt outlets. Its a lot like standard household voltage most commonly called 120 Volts. This class typically ranges from 110 volts to 120+ volts. So, if you have access to, or can get access to a 240V outlet, 230V outlet or a 220V power source, no worries, you are good to go.

PROS & CONS
120 Volt Systems:
• Warm up time is only about 15 minutes. • Recovery time is about 4 minutes. You can plug a 120 Volt Vapor Rino into any standard American outlet. So, if you're at your mom's house or at the office, no worries. Just plug it in, warm it up and get to work. There is no doubt that the 120 volt version is very convenient. Warm up time from ice cold to ready is about 15 minutes. The 120 Volt version will produce the same peek 145 PSI pressure as the 230 Volt version but it will not maintain as much steam or recover as fast. Recovery time on the 120V is about 4 minutes. Other than the power and steam generation difference, the machines have the same basic features, come with the same accessories, and are the same size and shape.

PROS & CONS
230 Volt Systems:
• The 230 Volt 145 PSI Vapor Rino’s Warm up time is only about 5-7 minutes from ice cold!!! The 120v takes about 15 min. The 230Volt Rino maintains around 90 to 100 PSI even after 5 minutes of typical heavy steaming. Let go of the trigger and in about 30 to 60 seconds later you have full recovery to 145 PSI • Recovery time is super-fast, about 8 times the recovery rate of the 120 Volt system. The 230V system can handle (and comes with) a LONGER STEAM HOSE of 26 feet long. There are really no cons to the 230 except one. So let's address that now. The only down side to a 230 Volt Version of the Vapor Rino Commercial Vapor Steam Cleaner is that you have to have access to a 230 Volt outlet. It's that simple. You can use a generator (see generator section) or your shops 230 volt outlet or our Quick220 dual 120v converter to power it up. You can also have an outlet installed at your location. Having an electrician install a single outlet is usually very inexpensive. Check out our instant 230Volt in home converter page.

See our generator info in the FAQ or Common Questions section of this page for more on picking a generator. Do Not use an underpowered generator. Make sure you pick the right size and it has the right outlet.

230 Volt PROS: Power, More Power and did we mention more power? Oh yeah, and a massive hose length of 26 feet! Yep, it is a simple choice if you have the ability to use it. 230 Volts is simply the best option if you want maximum steam generation power. Also, the heat up time from cold to hot is only about 5+ minutes rather than 15+ minutes, recovery rate is 30 to 60 seconds as opposed to 4 minutes with the 120 volt Vapor Rino. As you can see from those numbers, we are talking about at least 3 times the steam generation capabilities.

Both units are great. For me, I like the 120 Volt version just because I can use it anywhere, anytime, running off of an everyday outlet. If I were in the mobile detail business, a cleaning contractor with a lot of jobs lined up or a carwash expecting to do a lot of work I would probably get the 230 Volt Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner. It all depends upon my access to a 230 volt power source and how fast I need to get the job done.

The choice is yours, both are cutting edge industry leading systems. The good news, unlike most systems on the market we give you a choice! Choice is power. Thanks for reading. Work Hard, Live Free!
Dry CAR WASH & AUTO DETAILING -- is this a good machine for this?
MOBILE DRY CAR WASH & AUTO DETAILING = YES!

Absolutely! The Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner is perfect for this kind of work! The mobile dry carwash industry is becoming very popular as more and more cities impose water restrictions. From its high power to its fully adjustable chemical and hot water injection system this machine is fantastic for this industry.

Purchase a 230 Volt version and provide you and your customers a faster service. The 230 Volt version generates about three times as much steam per minute then the 120 Volt version. This means you can clean faster than ever before.

The steam flow is 100% adjustable! This means you can easily lower the steam flow for delicate interior automotive detail work. Be it a exterior carwash, interior detailing, cleaning sticky gunk out of cup holders, around seat bolts, door jams or cleaning tires and engines. The Vapor Rino 145 PSI Chemical Injected high powered commercial vapor steam cleaner.
TILE & GROUT: Is this a good system for cleaning Tile & Grout?
Absolutely! The Vapor Rino commercial steam cleaner is an excellent TILE and GROUT cleaner. In most instances it does an amazing job clearing floor grout and mopping all kinds of hard surface floors. The Vapor Rino is a great all around cleaning service vapor steam cleaner.

Years ago I ran a bathroom renewal company. One of our services was cleaning residential and commercial floor grout. Using the grout brush and the extension poles (included) we would work the grout lines and in most cases, the floor was restored to close to new. For smaller jobs we charged by the job but in most cases we charged by the square foot. Back when I was doing it we were charging $2 a square foot. You will have to call around and get an idea on price in your local market.

The Vapor Rino, or one of our other commercial dry vapor steam cleaners do a fantastic job cleaning floor grout. This is a great service you can offer to your existing clients. What? You are an auto detailer,, how can you offer grout cleaning? Just make a brochure or flier and hand it to your customers. You will be surprised at how many people have tile floors that need updating. Good money, easy work and its a fast and easy to boost your income. While you're at it, you can clean your own tile and grout at home :)

Unlike the expensive truck mount tile and grout cleaning machines a Vapor Rino costs less and is MUCH more flexible. Try running a truck mount hose up to the 4th floor of a home or building. It's just not going to happen. On the other hand, you can take one of Vapor Rino's commercial vapor steam cleaners anywhere. 40th floor? no problem. Just bring it up and plug it in. 100% portable and effective!

I just got my Vapor Rino last month. It came in the mail fast. At first I was confused about the injections system so I called the 800 number. I got through to a real person! James was very very helpful and got me up and running in a few minutes. So far my steamer has been even better than expected. Thank you Jon.

I had my 120v for almost two years & it is still going strong. Frankly, one of the best purchases I have ever made for my detail business. It has massively cut down the amount of time it takes me to do a car interior. I am seriously debating getting a 230v rino. I can only imagine how much more powerful that thing must have! Thanks, Steve from UT

This was my first time buying a steamer. The whole thing has been a pleasure. The guy on the phone answered all my questions and was full of good information. I’ve had my 5000Ci unit for almost two years and its my baby. I use it at my shop cleaning my store as well as at my house. Soda taps, sticky stuff, refrigerators and just all over my store it works well.  I think people are missing out. From what I can tell most people have never even used a vapor cleaner. My advice, consider getting one. Thanks for the fast shipment and great support. Its been a pleasure working with you over the years.  Chung L, CO

I’m using my Vapor Rino around the house. The 120v is light years ahead of my other steamer in every way. The quality of build, the high-end accessories and how easy it rolls around the house make it truly exceptional. Works amazing my stainless barbecue grill, floor grout and as a natural sanitize. I just wanted to write you to thank you. I absolutely love my steamer. Either my wife or I use it almost every weekend. Its just so easy to flip the switch and get to it. Frankly, it looks beautiful as well, just my opinion.  Thank you, Joseph N, WY

I bought a 4000C in 2012 and its been real good to me. I saw your newer 3in1 Vapor Rino’s and decided to get it based on my experience with the unit I have. So far, I’m very happy. The power difference is huge over the one I have. I had a problem setting up but I called you guys and you got me straightened out in a matter of minutes. It is now 2019 and I’ve been using my new Rino for about 4 years and its solid. I highly recommend it; it took my business to another level.  I’ll probably be ordering the 230v Rino soon, I can’t wait to check out the power difference and the 26’ hose. For the record, I use it for detailing cars and trucks. That’s my main business and on the side, I do some commercial kitchen cleaning and residential work. No doubt, this thing has more than paid for itself.   Carlos R. AZ

We are a reglazing company and were looking to expand. With that I got the 4000-c steamer with many doubts but I have to tell you. Vapor steam really works for us, especially on floor grout. I have a lot of residential customers so we booked our first job one week after getting the unit. We made $1,300 dollars grout cleaning 5 rooms in one house. It took one full work day. I’m glad I spoke to James over there, he is the real deal. He has actually used these machines as a contractor. Coming from someone that has actually been on job sites, the advice helped a lot.  Thanks for everything. Joe

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. You were very helpful. So far its been a year and my 4000 works great. It was easy to get going. I took it out of the box, filled it with water, plugged it in and turned it on. After a few minutes I was off and cleaning. I tried it on everything, haven’t had that much fun cleaning in years lol. I love the steam gun and the attachments are far better than my old plastic steamer. Oh yeah, & thanks for the fast delivery! Karen, TX

I did a lot of research before I decided on the VR145. I came close to buying one of those $8k steamer and even considered the cheap one on the market. All I can say is after getting it, I'm sold! It’s the best thing to ever happen to my detail shop. I lost my main steam hose, called James and he had one in the mail the same day. Good stuff!  5 stars from me. Alberto, OR

Thanks, your service is outstanding. You answered all my questions, the steamer came on time and most importantly, it works better than expected. I will never again buy a cheap knock off. I mean the accessories, gun type and performance compared to your lower price competitor is remarkable. Sadly, I bought theirs first thinking I was saving.  6 months in, my new Vapor Rino is the clear winner. Emir, NM

I love my 4000S steamer, I use it almost EVERY DAY! I have told all of my friends about it and convinced 2 to order. One of them got the bigger 4000C and they love it as much as I love mine and after trying hers I’m a bit jealous. I was looking for an eco-friendly way to clean. I'm trying to remove as many toxic chemicals from my routine as possible. This is the perfect solution. Anyway, thank you for your help on the phone. I adore my steamer! Best wishes, Jennifer OH

Man, makes my old steamer look like a toy. I got the 230 Volt Rino and it is amazing. I had one of those amazon specials. It worked some but nothing like this!!! I cant say enough. I love that bad ass long main hose and the extraction kit is a good deal. So it is doing a better job on the upholstery than my expensive hot water extractor.  Thank you, ChevKock from CA

Good system over all. I was a little disappointed that I had to wait for the VR145 because it was on back order. They did tell me this before I ordered but I don’t like to wait. I think when you want a product of this caliber and price it should be ready to ship at all times.  That said, now that I finally got it my guys like it. It is making fast work of the upholstery and the over all detailing of the car. I have to admit, though I was a bit frustrated waiting, it was worth it. Its vastly better than my cheap M…. unit I got. That little unit is what got me into steam. Now that we have the Vapor Rino, there is no going back to our old methods.  Thanks for the help on the phone the other day.
