Works very well
on November 18, 2012
This unit is made in China, in case you didn't know that. That said, it seems to be constructed well. The first thing I tasked it with was cleaning out a shower in a home that one of our renters never cleaned the shower in 2 years. It was a tough job, and the scrubber was up to it. I did have to use a sponge a time or two to really get into a corner well, but that's it. We have a bath-fitters insert in the shower. You have to be careful with it. It's very durable, but you can't scour it. I used a combination of nylon brush, sponge and long bristle brush on it. Cleaned well, and no scratches. However I would caution you to not apply a lot of pressure to the brushes on a bath fitter tub.
The batteries that come supplied with it are junk. You can get some cleaning time out of them, but the unit runs much better and longer with name brand alkaline batteries.
The unit doesn't spin real fast (it would splatter cleaning stuff all over the walls if it did.) If you have and area that's slow in coming clean, don't bear down hard on the scrubber. Go slow and let the machine keep spinning over the spot.
The brushes seem to be constructed well. The sponge is a sponge. You'll have to keep an eye out if you're cleaning things with sharp edges or protrusions. The owners manual says nothing about replacement brushes or sponges. On the other hand, at this price maybe buying a new unit is a better idea. You could always cut a sturdy sponge round and glue it the sponge attachement I'm sure.
Money well spent.
