    I wasn't sure which Vax carpet washer to buy but I'm so glad I chose this one! I will say right at the beginning that the only downside is it is quite noisy (although I don't have another carpet washer to compare it to - so it could be much quieter than most, I just can't say). This machine needs to be assembled but it is all really simple and it didn't take me very long before I was filling it up ready to go. Instead of filling straight from the hot tap, I used a measuring jug as there isn't any markings on the tank except for the 'max' line. I also used the Pet cleaning solution.Vax AAA Pet Concentrate 1L.

    This really works wonders, and leaves the carpets (and rugs) only slightly damp. When I turned the rug over, I couldn't see any damp patches at all. Everything dried completely within an hour or so. The hose attachment is easy to use and was great for doing small patches and hard to reach areas (also round the skirting to make sure everything was clean). There wasn't alot of foam like with other cleaners (I'd used one before which I'd hired from a diy store) and everywhere was left with a clean, fresh smell.

    I really recommend this carpet washer; it is quick and easy to use and great value for money.

    Have used this machine for the first time yesterday, and must say it is great, does exactly what is says it does!!! It is noisy, but who cares when it is doing a first rate job of getting the dirt out of 2 sofas & a large carpet.
    I was told by a few people that these kind of cleaners weren't very effective on cleaning but this one certainly is.
    Many thanks to Amazon for a great price and superfast delivery, even on a Bank Holiday weekend

    Have had the VAX carpet washer for 2 years and it has definately 'earned its keep' cleaning some dramatic spills. Especially when I droped a big bottle of brown sauce which cracked and spread loads of huge brown sauce lumps all over my white carpet. This took several attempts but the carpet was eventually perfect again. I also dropped toothpaste on white carpet (which turned it green) and the washing alone did not remove but the rotating brush did the job!

    Have also used the hose attachment to clean my 4 year old fabric sofa (it was feeling a bit greasy and off colour from daily use) and it now looks almost new again!

    I also use it for doing a deep clean of the carpets every 6 months. I would advise you try and schedule the deep cleans at the start and end of the summer sun as the carpets dry so much quicker in the warm weather. It's a pain to have to move all the furniture around. Suggest you let the carpets dry before moving the furniture back otherwise the carpets might rot.

    I have found the Concentrated VAX solution to be as effective as the Normal VAX soloution. Managed to get 3 bottles of concentrate (which will last me years) on Amazon for £10 each a while ago. I tried to use up some old normal carpet cleaner soloution but it bubbled up too much - so stick to the official VAX stuff.

    My only criticism is that the VAX carpet washer churns up so much crud that it can get bunged up and takes a lot of cleaning afterwards. Suggest you do a thorough carpet hoover beforehand to pick up the obvious dirt (as it's much better dry than wet!).

    We purchased the cleaner to freshen up our carpets and lift the pile, which did the job very well.
    My only observation is the tool holder supplied does not hold any attachments, seems this is the wrong fitting for the cleaner.
    Other wise a very satisfactory product performance.

    I recently bought the Vax Rapide Classic, after assembelling it we found the hose will not fit into the 'Lower Hose Caddy', the ends of the hose are round and 2 out of 3 of the holes where they're supposed to fit are square....This means that one end of the hose is free to clatter into walls, furniture etc when using the carpet washer. No matter how much you try you can't fit a round peg into a square hole! I have tried to contact Vax, both by phone and a couple of e mails,but no one has replied. It lookes as if the hose caddy which is fitted on the cleaner has been re-designed and they've forgotten to alter the ends of the hose! I could have saved money if I'd bought a model without the hose attatchment! If anyone from Vax reads this....PLEASE GET IN TOUCH .....(think that's a long shot!!!)
