If your house is starting out nearly spotless and without pets than this vacuum would be ok for you. However if there is dirt and pet fur on your floor this thing clogs up after vacuuming one small room. So to keep it operating properly you have to keep emptying, rising, and refilling the tank (which is a bucket with odd angles that requires a toothbrush to clean out the corners) maybe 3 or 4 times just to vacuum through the house once. I dump the tank in the yard and use the hose on it, later I pick up the dried fur ball laying on the grass . If this bucket was to break I don't even know if replacements are available.
Then there are filters that are a pain to rinse and clean. The site I purchased this vacuum from left the impression there were no filters that needed to be replaced and they didn't offer them. Well there are. Five years ago a set cost about $35, so I purchased five of them from another site. I am down to one set left, so I go online to purchase more and they are $50 each. I notice they aren't even available through Amazon.
Also where the hose connects to the vacuum must be pulled apart and cleaned once in awhile.
I have used the upholstery and carpet shampooer attachments a few times, these are ok.
My mother has had a Rainbow vacuum for 26 years, with no complaints. I wish I had put out the extra money and purchased one.
Despite all these complaints the Rotho vacuum has amazing suction and will get carpets really clean. And if you keep the tank and filters cleaned the exhaust air is very fresh.
I will start by saying I vacuum every week and follow the "rules" about how many times and directions you should vacuum the carpet. The first time I used this, however, it was full of what looked like wet dryer lint and hair, so guess my previous vacuum just wasn't getting it done as well as I thought it was. After using it for 10-12 times now, I still find that it picks up an amazing amount of fuzz, dust, whatever.
Pros: sucks up everything in the carpet, exhaust air is super fresh, does a nice job cleaning my wood floors (when I want to spend the extra time vs running a mop over them), fits under most low tables and furniture so don't have to move furniture to vacuum under it.
Cons: heavy, need to clean it out after vacuuming only one level of my house (about 1500 sq feet), cord automatically retracts so will unplup itself, smaller cleaning head than my old vacuum.
Overall, this is a great vacuum if you know what you are getting into when you buy it. I believe my house is cleaner and I can deal with the hassle of filling it with water and then dumping out the filth afterwards. I rinse the bucket and filters out in my basement utility sink and let them air dry, which cuts down on clean up time.
