Bye buckets and dirty clothes!
on 9 January 2014
If you reading this review is because you already know something about the product. So, here is my pros and cons:
1) great cleaning quality (vacuuming and washing)
2) easy setting and cleaning the components,
3) virtual wall is very useful
4) not too loud
5) saves much more water compared to buckets ou usual mops
But, I have some cons because the first time I tried to set it up I had some problems and considered returning the product
1) the worst user's manual ever!
It comes with a pump, but there wasn't anything saying what is this for or how to use it (and I had to learn how to use it).
Don't explain some simple things like "use the product at least the first time to activate the sensor".
2) It says it works with plain water, but mine doesn't.
And that's why I was having the annoying green tank light the many times I've tried to use only plain water.
Then I read in the website robotreviews that in previous models it needed something to conduct eletricity in the water, as the sensor is outside the tank. I also read about using the pump. Well I did the both procedures and voillá, it worked!
So, after the stress I gave 5 stars because it works very well with white vinegar (indicated by irobot in the website, but says nothing in the manual). It covers almost my whole home and I prefered that to buckets and washing dirt clothes.
It is like my washing machine: I still have some work, but helps a lot!
So, It is five stars because I can't picture myself without it anymore.
