Bought this because I had a Vax Wet and Dry cleaner a few years back and it was great. This one, however, has been a great disappointment. Suction is good but the rear filter kept blowing off every few minutes so I phoned Vax and they sent a replacement filter, which to be fair has only blown off a couple of times, usually when I was vacuuming the stairs. Another moan is that the filter needs frequent cleaning and the blockage light is always coming on, meaning I've had to keep taking it apart and usually haven't been able to find any blockage anywhere. Niggling little faults but annoying when you're trying to get the housework done.
