Maintaining your machine
The floor tool shown may vary from the product selected but the process remains the same.
Switch tools quickly
Just slide your chosen tool onto the inlet pipe until you hear a click.
Wash the filter regularly
Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Squeeze out excess water and leave to dry on its side (at least 24 hours) before refitting.
Don't overfill it
To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.
