May 14, 2009 – Burlington, Wash. -- Setup for the Connections East Trade Show at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort in Clearwater Beach, Fla., started right on schedule this morning, even though event organizers had to contend with an unexpected water damage just hours before setup was to begin.

 Last night a thunderstorm came up quickly and by 9:30 p.m., it had flooded 5000 square feet of the Connections East trade show floor with one inch of water.

 Fortunately, the Legend Brands show truck was just outside with the new Dri-Eaz Big Gulp 4500 extraction system and BLUEline ThermalWave II on board and ready for action.

 Legend Brands staff Thom Fielding and Glen Galatan worked side by side with show organizers Barry Costa, Larry Cooper and Dennis Iverson for more than two hours to extract the show floor, then placed drying equipment to finish the job overnight.

 Sudden thunderstorms are beyond human control, but designing equipment for fast and effective response to floods is no accident. Both the BLUEline Thermal Wave II and the Dri-Eaz Big Gulp truckmounts were purpose-built to deliver powerful, efficient extraction.

 “We would have been here all night if we only had portables to use,” said one of the Connections Convention managers. “We really appreciated the help!”
