I am interested in bying Rainbow cleaner, i am not shure about my electical supply. I live in Europe,and wee use 200v insted of 110v so I need a transformer. Could you specify The power in watts and ampers...
If I may comment, as an allergy sufferer and service tech,and former Vac Store Owner, etc, a Rainbow, IMHO is a waste of time and money.
A Rainbow or REXAIR works on the basis that it filters dirt through a water tank,with a `centrifugal separator` when in fact as it runs, it actually humidifies with dirty water, releasing nasty stuff back into the air.
Although the motor is good quality the humidity often causes rust damage as the vac ages leading to VERY expensive repairs with proprietary parts.
Test the filtration theory for yourself, do two things, pour a packet of orange drink crystals into the bucket with water and run the vac , you will smell the orange because it is being mixed with moisture and released into the air. Dirt will do the same. I have done this in front of a Rainbow Salesman in my girlfriend`s home, he was speechless...
Also pull the exhaust plug cap from the back of a rainbow after it has been used and wipe the dust from the inside of the cap. The dust should not be there if in fact the vac is all it is puported to be, but you will find it.
There are some excellent vacs in Europe, SEBO and Nilfisk are two with exceptional filtration. and are both very tidy to handle when emptying. They will also provide excellent tools with good cleaning results. Miele also makes several very good units, which should provide years of service.
For my money, it would be SEBO....Just remember, when it rains , the air smells great , but the street is still not clean, water and dirt dont mix
