£60 - brilliant!

I have an elderly dog who is starting to have accidents. This has been stressing me out because trying to clean up the spots is hard work and time consuming plus I am never sure that the area has been cleaned properly. Solution! this carpet cleaner!

I have bought Vax products in the past and have found them to be excellent quality so that did influence my choice.

Easy to put together, literally 3 screws so the only thing you have to have ready is a screwdriver.

Not as heavy as I thought it would be, with my bad back, that is a bonus!

Very easy to use and it comes with a small bottle of carpet cleaner so once it was assembled I was using it.

Pros:
1. Comes with shampoo
2. Very easy to fill and clean the water chambers
3. Long cord with a well designed storage system
4. When cord is coiled up it fits properly (so many electrical goods I have purchased recently dont)

Cons:
1. As others have mentioned - the noise! It is very noisy and the high pitch squeal is unbearable. However, I just put ear plugs in when I am using it!

I am pleased with this product over all. It does what it says and I now have clean carpets and no stress.

It's definitely a product aimed at people who can't be bothered with the hassle of hire and return, but don't want to spend an absolute fortune just to clean their carpets.

I bought mine prior to moving out of a flat and handing it back to the owners. It left the carpets smelling and looking much fresher, and you wouldn't believe how dirty the water gets. Embarrassing really! The build is very 'plasticy', but it feels sturdy enough and it makes it quite lightweight. It also made a couple of dried-in stains look much better, though elbow grease was required to remove them entirely!

A couple of issues though.. the tanks are fairly small, so you'll need 3-4 re-fills of the clean tank per room if the room is of a reasonable size. We had a large lounge/dining room and that took me 5 refills. For every two refills of the clean tank, you have to empty the dirty tank, so that adds quite a lot of time to the job. The other issue is the noise. As another reviewer mentioned, there are two filters, one on the dirty water tank and one where the dirty tank connects to the machine. The instructions only mention one of these filters for some reason! So unless you clean both filters every time you empty the dirty tank (by removing them and running them under a tap) you'll get a high pitch whining noise.

So in summary, it's a good value machine that ultimately leaves your carpets much much cleaner. It just requires a bit of fiddling and re-filling to get the job done. It's not like you'll be doing this every week, so my advice is just buy it!

I have read the review above, (MAD) and I do not know what they are talking about.
I have just purchased this machine and used it for the first time today, it is a great little machine, easy to assemble, easy to use, (If you read the manual FIRST).
It did not leave the carpet soaking wet and did a really good job of cleaning it.

I have only had this cleaner a few days and had a few teething problems. I posted a few questions on the 'Questions? Get fast answers from reviewers box'. Thanks to all those who kindly replied.
One problem I had was the machine became very noisy. Some of my answers from reviewers pointed me in the right direction. I had not realized it , but my 14 year old Dyson vacuum was less efficient than it used to be- hence my carpets still held quite a bit of dust and fluff. therefore the cleaners filters quickly became blocked. There is a second filter which, for some strange reason,is not mentioned in the instruction book. When you lift out the dirty water tank there is an approx 1"x 2" outlet in the machine that holds the second filter. This was the one causing the problem. Even though I have purchased a new vacuum I am having to clean this filter several times- as soon as I hear the noise build up. It does not take long and I trust that after several more vacuums and shampoos things should improve. I also noticed, now I am keeping this filter clear the dirty water tank is filling faster.
I also experienced fluff etc getting trapped in the clear plastic front (where the orange arrows are). This has largely improved since sorting out the filter problems
The other question I did ask was 'Is it OK to use 1001 3 in 1 carpet cleaner in this machine as it is much cheaper than the Vax liquid. It does say on the 1001 bottle 'suitable for Vax machines', though Vax say if you use other cleaners it invalidates the guarantee. I had several different answers from other reviewers. One person, quite rightly, pointed out about the guarantee invalidation & said they had purchased a large bottle of Vax liquid for £6, or there about's via the internet.

Well as I needed a carpet cleaner as our little girl had a sickness bug and threw up everywhere I was very pleased when a fried offered this carpet cleaner on loan.

First impressions I though easy peasy just like ones I have used before. That's where the good things stop. Filled it up and put the clean water container back in, water everywhere. So I took it out and tried again and guess what........water everywhere.

So I though you must have to have it switched on (stupid idea but I thought I would try it) water everywhere. So by now I had filled it up twice and water just kept on flooding out all by itself.

3rd time was the charm, it would seem that you have to put it back just right or the one way valve sticks open and water floods out.

Now onto the cleaning, as its a 1 little tank you have to repeatedly keep on filling it up as it runs out very quickly (had another few minor flooding incidents) if you take your time it's ok. However if you move it to fast the dirty water comes up out if the dirty water tank and sprays everywhere (air valve for the vacuum).

It's kinda done the job but caused a lot more problems than it should have. If we had to get stains out I think it would have been useless as you cannot really get any sort of scrubbing action going.

Ok for small spills but I will be paying more ang getting a better one and also a one with a rotating scrubbing brush to really get out the dirt.
