Tip & How-To about Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum
It is a design flaw having a check valve orifice built into the steam generator.
The plastic sleeve gets hot and get hard and shrinks enough to cause blockage at the inlet to steam generator.
Also a lot of sediment builds up inside steam generator from impurities in the water which eventually causes a problem and block at the mop head.
solution would be to move the check valve from the steam generator to the pump discharge line where it is cooler. and use only distilled water. they should also use a stainless heater element instead of pot metal as it corrodes.
