My first thought on this item was it would not be up for the job. Easy to assemble and use. My carpets look brand new the amount of dirt and muck it sucks up is unbelievable. The carpets are nearly dry when it cleans them as well so there is no waiting for them to dry. This is definatly value for money.

Used my VAX Rapide for the first time yesterday and it is brilliant - you can actually see the dirty water for yourself, so you know it is working and the carpets are touch dry immediately after you've cleaned them. My house now sparkles!

Wish they had an attachment for the stairs though.

A good machine. Cleans well and dries well, although be aware that the cleaner your carpets are to start with, the better it will dry them (the deep embedded dirt retains water, frequent washing gets rid of it and therefore lets it dry easier).

The only downside is the noise, it's quite possibly quieter having a jet engine strapped to your shoulders!!

I have to say I read all the reviews about Vax products and some were very dubious, but for less than £70 I made the plunge.

Having animals, children and mud, everything gets really dirty! The carpets I have are low pile and I was not sure it would dry them properly. But I have used this on two of my carpets and it has worked a charm.

Plus Points:
*Easy to put together - 5 screws - Vax could have included a screwdriver though!
*Simple easy instructions.
*Very easy to use.
*Easy to roll.
*Leaves the carpets quite dry.

Negative Points:
*Sounds like a large aircraft is taking off.
*The rollers don't press down hard enough and are not height adjustable.
*If you move it too fast the float (that stops it when full) bounces up and you have to switch it off & on again.
*If you want them to be as dry as possible, put one foot on top of the dirty water box while pulling backward!

To be honest I am nit-picking with the negative points, it is really good. I plan on using the cheapest possible cleaning mix once the Vax mix runs out.

Thoroughly vacuum your carpets before using this, otherwise the brushes will get covered in hair and take ages to clean again!

Saved me money and allows me to keep the carpet clean.
In short a good buy and cheaper than eBay.

good product at the price.

It is hampered by not having an accessory kit for stairs and could do with a little bit more power.

That said it cleans well, is easy to set up & use so no complaints.

Having 2 children both under age 3 in a fully carpeted flat, bar the kitchen and bathroom, I desperately needed an aqua vac. Wooden floors are not an option in my lease here.

Being cheaper than other Vax's for washing carpets, I was aware that it may not be as good. Especially after reading some more of the negative reviews. It's certainly not as noisy as the RugDoctor I've hired previously. I did have to go over the more heavily soiled areas more times and slowly, than I'd have liked but I suspect now the carpet is at a better standard, providing I regularly aqua vac, next time it will not take me so long. It's easy to assemble, light weight, manuverable, easy to empty and easy to fill. Simple instruction manual to follow and my carpet certainly looks lovely now in the lounge/ dining area, whereas before it looked pretty dire, despite my previous best efforts by hand before the purchase.

There are other vax's available with hand tools for sofa's etc. However if you only wish to do the carpets, then this one is perfect in my opinion.

Not very impressed, maybe my expectations were too high. Whilst my carpets may be a bit cleaner, I am not left thinking that the difference really shows. The filter disintegrated fairly quickly. It is good for sucking up spills though.
