Comment:
Ths is my second one. I bought it bases on CU recommendations. The previous one lasted about 2 years.<br />This has a much shorter cord, and no noticeable improvements. This machines leak badly, esp when you're changing the containers - water fills the grommets - lean the handle back & you have a small flood. I clean an 1800 sq ft house weekly. Carpet and tile. After about six months the cleaning ability starts to degrade. It going in for repairs because the brushes stopped turning. Not a quality machine
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I used this to clean a large basement carpet that was filthy, which it did well enough. As I put it away it trailed solution across the cleaned carpet which, although extracted and dried, collected dirt quickly and made the carpet look worse than before I started. I now use it with water only and spray solution on spots by hand, not ideal! <br />The hose doesn't clean nearly as well, and has less suction than the machine itself, leaving stairs damp and not cleaned well. The third time that I used the attachment the plastic trigger broke and it is now useless, except for pumping water everywhere.<br />Cheap materials and poor design make this a bad choice.
