Purpose of buying this product was to tackle a favourite rug that I have had for 18 years. Not had any luck with previous carpet cleaners so, in a way, buying this (rather than renting) was a risk.
Within half an hour of the product arriving this morning I assembled it, filled it with water and loaded some of the contents of one of the two bottles of Carpet shampoo which came with the product and I was away...
If you're unsure on the measurements for the shampoo (as I can't be asked with all of that) then never fear - the product automatically works it out. If you have shampoo left in the product at the end of your cleaning frenzy, you can pour the excess back in to the shampoo bottle.
The instructions on how to assemble the product were really easy, the tips on how to push/pull and release the (shampoo) lever were very helpful, the removal of the conpartments for each water (one for dirty and one for clean) was really easy - just as well as the dirty water compartment had to be emptied four times whilst cleaning that rug!
The dials on the product are clear: when washing your carpet you have it on 'clean' when you have finished doing that and wish to suck up any excess water (to ensure the carpet dries quicker) turn the dial to 'rinse'.
I really genuinely never believed it would all be so easy. The rug looks as good as new (after 18 years - two kids and a dog -- didn't realise the colours on the rug were so vibrant!).
Next task is the clean my bedroom carpets...
By the way (and probably of little interest to the majority of you) I don't normally write reviews of products that I have bought but this inspired me to write one partly because the difference to the look of my rug was significant and also because I have finally found the ideal product (after at least two years of research) - and if any of you have been in a similar situation, I hope you find this review helpful!
