When I went to buy a Deep Cleaner I had a limited Budget & did a lot of review reading. I came across this Deep Cleaner & while I heard many things like leaking and loss of suction I can relate to the Leaking. It DOES Leak, However You NEED to drain the water from it. What Happens is we leave the water sitting in the container & the weight of it is pushing on the nozzles below it causing it to have a unsteady leak. This isn't really Bissels Error, This is us being lazy and Not properly cleaning out the clean/dirty water from the Container.
Another thing about the Suction, I think the Biggest problem is that we don't clean our carpet enough with a DRY Vacuum getting up all debris BEFORE using this Deep Cleaner. It isn't made to pick up TONS of hair, Small bits of food, paper etc,.. It's made to pick up minimal amounts of hair & the water it leaves behind. I think what happens is all those debris is messing with the vacuum.
Another tip, when your done cleaning take things apart and clean out all the access hair. I've found when leaving it, it dries up and it all begins to stink meaning where ever your Deep Cleaner is, It's going to smell. (We ran into this problem, We were cleaning up 2yr old & dog urine! YUCK!! The smell!)
Once again not a Bissel error, we just have to keep up with Proper Maintenance of it. If your not wanting the extra hassle then pay someone to clean your carpet. One other tip to go along with the cleaning, The Hose WILL leak but this is just Gravity, When you are done Pull the hose STRAIGHT UP & let the water drain back in BEFORE doing any cleaning, this would be your first step as you wouldn't want to clean and then drain this dirty water back in there. (If you even use your hose at the same time a long with using the actual deep cleaner it self, I'm always using both because my house is like a war path with these 3 lol (2yr old son, Great Dane Puppy, & Golden Retriever!). Overall, Do I think this Deep Cleaner is worth buying? YES! If you are on a budget, then this Deep Cleaner is FOR YOU! There is a lot of good points about it. Its suction is amazing with proper maintenance, I've had it for 30days and its been used AT LEAST 8times. The hose is an amazing extra, everything is easy to put together upon arrival home, It's VERY EASY & SIMPLE to use - You don't have to be a rocket scientist!, It looks are good, It glides across the floor with ease & It's not Very Loud at all.
I give it 4 stars because I do believe bissel could have done a little better job, but I think it was worth the $120 I paid for it and If I can get at least another 2years use out of it I'll be happy.
