"Water-Powered" Rotary Scrub Brush
The T-Scrub requires no electricity or batteries and weighs only 5 lbs. It requires a minimum of 50 psi of water pressure.
"A control valve regulates the amount of water deposited on the brush and there's a built-in speed control and sprayer for rinsing. It has both inlet and exhaust hoses. Water from the return line can be run out onto the lawn or whatever needs watering," says Thomas Vrhel Sr., vice president of Vrhel Inc. in Texas.
Vrhel says the oscillating action of the rotary brush is more than just a rotary motion û it's the same scrubbing motion as a washing machine. Because it generates so much scrubbing power, Vrhel doesn't recommend it for use on car, tractor or truck paint finishes, but the unit is ideal in hundreds of other applications such as scrubbing horse trailers, farm equipment, vinyl or aluminum siding, windows, walkways, RVs and airplanes. Because the pistons generate so much scrubbing power, the unit works well underwater, making it ideal for swimming pool, boat or hot tub cleaning.
A sponge within the center of the brush minimizes the required soap, and retains it for an extended period, eliminating the need to soap frequently.
The T-Scrub comes with 25 ft. of paired hose and a 54-in. extension handle.
The T-Scrub sells for $179.95 plus $14.25 S&H.
"We'll soon be releasing a new option as well," Vrhel says. "It's a re-circulating pump that will allow water to be re-used on large jobs."
