I brought this carpet cleaner about 3 years ago after giving up on the wet and dry cylinder hoovers as the motors kept burning out on these i payed £299.00 from argos.
The cleaner arrives in pieces which you have to assemble your self which even with good detailed instructions can take quite a while.
Eager to try the cleaner i filled the water tank which clips off from the base of the cleaner which is a bit confusing but you soon get used to it. The water tank is a plastic tank with a bag inside, the clean water goes inside the bag and the dirty water goes back into the container. Then i realised the tank doesnt fit under my tap so had to fill it with a jug which wasnt too difficult.
I plugged it in, there is miles of wire so you dont have to worry about running out.
Then came pushing the thing, im not joking when i say my car is easier to push than this carpet cleaner. It is very large and very heavy.
Wholst cleaning the carpet the brushes kept getting clogged up even though i had hoovered before cleaning, so i had to keep stopping to clear the brushes on the bottom.
The carpet looked very clean after but was very wet, the carpet cleaner will also dry your carpet but this takes ages, i would probably have had more luck with my hair dryer.
I was not happy.
It also comes with tools for cleaning settees and stairs which do clean very well but leave things even wetter than the cleaner does so i wasnt happy with this either.
I attempted to clean the bedroom carpet with it and because it is long piled it was still soaking wet at the end, it took 3 days to dry.
I wouldnt recomend this cleaner and have since got me a vax
Summary: what a waste of money
