Rated 5 out of 5Â by GettinRdyfrSummer Great for small spots and I love that I don't have to do the work!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MeggieMc Good but could have been designed better
Negatives: Water tank is VERY small and has to be refilled frequently. Leaves TOO MUCH water in the carpet. Other carpet cleansers I've used get soak up a lot more of the water leaving your carpet damp not soaking wet.
Positives: It works by itself - freeing up your time to do other things. We have a puppy and frequent accidents so this is a big positive. The Set in stain function along with the OxyGen2 booster is amazing. I had a red wine stain on my carpet that I've been trying to remove for years with my full size carpet cleaner. This removed the stain completely - I was thrilled. These make up for the short comings of the machine.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by RuralGirl If you have housepets you need a Spot Bot!
This is my 2nd Spot Bot of this style and 3rd Spot Bot overall. In emptying the receiving tank I did not realize the gasket had come off and I guess I must have flushed it thus the need for the new Spot Bot. I have 2 dogs that started as puppies and still have the occasional "indiscretion" and the Spot Bot is excellent at cleaning up after them. I had to replace the 1st Spot Bot as the hose had started to leak. The only "gripe" I have is that replacement parts are either not available or so pricy that I end up replacing the whole thing. This is Spot Bot #3 in 4-1/2 years. I have another carpet cleaner but dont like it near as well for cleaning up small messes.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by imtigger Nice idea, but it leaks profusely
It seems to work well when you set it on top of a stain and use the automatic settings, although it leaves the spot very wet when it's finished. I tried to use the hand held hose to suck up the rest of the water, but when you switch it to the setting for the hand tool, it leaks profusely from the brush at the bottom of the machine. I tried taking the cleaning formula tank off of it so there would be no fluid to leak out, but it doesn't work without the tank in place, so you would have to completely empty the cleaning fluid tank. It was too much hassle for an item that is supposed to make cleaning up pet messes easier. I found it takes less time and effort to use spot cleaner and a rag.
