It meets the 80/20 rule. It does 80% of the work that you would do if you did a thorough, good clean yourself. However, I usually don't do a thorough good clean myself on mopping floors since I left the navy.

obviously, make sure that your floor is swept before starting Scooba. (I use my Roomba since I am doubly lazy..) Scooba won't get into the corners, but neither do I when I mop.

The point is.. I don't like mopping. Neither does my wife. The hardwood floors never get mopped. I have a dog & 2 cats. Thus, the kitchen floor always looks like &*$(#! most of the time. Now it doesn't. It looks great. I'd suggest it for people that hate mopping & just want someone (or thing) to do it..

The first time I had scooba clean, it ran, but no water came out, and ittold me to check the tank, so i fiddled with it (pulled it apart & put it together again) and it worked. perhaps I didn't put the little rubber tube in right or didn't snap things together right the first time.

It works great on mud, dried food & dried spills. It missed some hardened, caked on gunk that would take a bit of scrubbing with a brush, or, scrubby part of your mop, but I didn't expect it to get those. In my case, it got up things like hardened jelly & stuff, but whatever the trash can has been grinding into the floor for the last couple years, it couldn't get up.

When you are done with Scooba, you do have to empty it out, give the tank a rinse, and clean the brush & a removable tube, to me though, thats easier than cleaning a mop. Though some people don't clean their mops, I would strongly suggest it with scooba.

You also need to buy their special cleaner, which to me, isn't that bad, since if you didn't use it, you'd be using another cleaner anyway.

I was impressed with the ease in which the Scooba operates. Every part is clearly marked on the machine and the directions are uncomplicated. The first time I used my Scooba, it started out working fine. But then the "Check Tank" light came on without any apparent reason. I opened and closed the tank, making sure it was securely locked and it started right up again. I left the room and, when I returned after the cycle was completed, the floor was VERY wet. When I emptied the dirty tank, there was barely any water in it! It was obvious that the vaccum system that squeeges the floor and sucks the dirty water back into the machine wasn't working properly. I called Customer Service and they were very helpful and immediately sent out a replacement part at no charge to me.

Actually, it turned out that the machine was working fine. When I opened and closed the tank, the vaccum portal had some water around the opening and didn't seal properly when the machine started up again, making it impossible for the machine to create enough suction. I recommend that anyone having this problem wipe the vaccum opening free of any water or debris and close the tank carefully to assure a proper seal.

I've owned my Scooba for a couple of weeks and have used it several times since without any problem. It gets the floor much cleaner than I would myself and I love knowing its cleaning my dirty kitchen floor while I'm taking care of business elsewhere. After the cycle is completed, I take an old towel and, using the moisture left on the floor after the cleaning cycle, mop the corners with my foot. It's quick and easy! It goes under my baker's shelf without any problem and cleans the dog's feeding area beautifully.

I have two children (1 and 10 year old boys) and three large dogs (great dane, mastiff, and shar pei), needless to say keeping floors clean is a struggle. I also happen to have an obsession with clean floors.

Every floor in my home is hardwood. I run it twice a day (once per level) and now all of my belongings are no longer covered in dog hair and I can walk around in bare feet without feeling yucky. If it only went up and down steps it would be perfect!

Another bonus side effect is that, when you run it every day, it keeps all that dust and dirt from just floating around your house and clinging to other stuff so I have to clean less often in general.

I suppose if I got out a bucket, sponge and set of knee pads I could do a better job but really who needs that in thier life? I do suggest moving or stacking things like dining room chairs as the scooba'll get all tangled up in the legs and shut off.

The only annoying thing was, when I firtst tried to start it up I kept getting the check tank warning for no apparent reason. However, a quick search on the irobot site gave me a solution to the problem. (you have to use a turky baster to force water through the pump to get it going)

This is the best $300 I ever spent.

Here are the most critical actions when using this great device. One - before you buy, read the specs. Two - after you buy read the owners manual. Three - do what the owners manual tells you to do. If you do all of this, you will have clean floors without a lot of elbow grease on your part

Let me explain. If you buy a Scooba that the manufacturer says will do 250 sq. ft., believe it. If your floor is really 350 sq. ft., don't write a one star review when the battery dies before completing the job. If you don't follow the instructions and prime the pump, don't write a one star review when the robot doesn't dispense solution. If you don't clean the device as instructed, don't complain when it gives you all sorts of warning lights and sounds. In short, use it as intended and you'll love it.

Bottom line: I vacuum my floors with a Roomba and then I follow that with a Scooba wash and my floors have never been cleaner. Every couple of months, I get into the corners with a sponge, but that's about it. These are great products (Roomba AND Scooba) and they really do work. I use mine on linoleum, ceramic tile and slate without any problems.

Suggestion: about every 4th use, run a white vinegar cleaning instead of using the Clorox solution. The Clorox does a great job, but I suspect that it has a small amount of something to make the floors shine, and this seems to build up and feel a little slippery under bare feet. No big deal, but the vinegar does seem to "refresh" the floor a little.
