What the experts say
My Clean Home Guide found the Rapid Revive to be a very good carpet cleaner providing powerful cleaning and a good range of features and accessories. The dual tank of clean and dirty water does a good job of ensuring performance doesn’t dip as you clean and its large capacity means you don’t have to keep refilling it over and over.

Great value, cleans and operates with ease.
I love my Hoover carpet cleaner. I used it to clean how are new babies carpet. Set up an operation were very easy and it was definitely worth the money. Carpet looked and felt like brand new.

Piece of junk!
DO NOT PURCHASE THUS UNIT!!! I am the customer who goes through and reads every review and did tons of research. I opted for this unit and after only a handfuls of use it is leaking and completely useless!!!! I have had much luck with renting and the headache of owning one of these machines isn’t worth the time or money!

A Complete Dud
Followed the instructions...it’s not rocket science...but the machine would not suck properly. It would do so for a minute or two, then the motor noise would change and it would not suck the water back up. Returned for full refund.

My husband's favourite appliance
I have reviewed the shampoo which is brilliant but you need the machine and I can't praise it enough. We purchased the machine after decorating and we had some good reports, it was only for the lounge. My husband used it and we couldn't believe the colour of the water we didn't think it was that bad, it looked like new and the carpet was dry in a hour. I have now got all my carpets cleaned and it wasn't very expensive don't hire one buy this!

One of the best
It's one of the best carpet cleaner, according how much we get dirty water from carpet... Can see big difference before use and after. This product definitely worth 5 star.

I bought this to replace a VAX that I had for over 10 years. I love its large capacity storage tanks meaning I don’t have to keep refilling for water and shampoo or emptying the dirty water container. It’s really easy to use because it applies hot air with the suction the carpets dry really quickly. I was also impressed with the attachments for cleaning the stairs and the carpet has its springiness back. I will probably wash my carpets more than I used to because it is so easy to use.

Better than my other Vax Carpet Cleaner.
My previous Vax carpet cleaner gave up the ghost and we bought this one. The machine was put together easily once my husband put his glasses on. Good size water tank, separate smaller tank for the cleaning fluid is a good feature. A larger tank for the dirty water a plus. Additional features I like are the deep clean and the rinse dials. Machine was easy to use when cleaning our carpet, suction strong on removing the waste water. Waste tank easy to remove. All in all a very good machine

I have just used my Vax for the first time very impressed. Could not get over how dry it left my carpet. Would highly recommend it.

After our puppy had a couple of accidents which stained the carpet , googled carpet cleaners was going to get the Vax premium washer but then read reviews for this , I'm so glad I did as I decided to opt for this one , after using it I actually wondered what the premium washer could do better than this one , I'm so thrilled with the results , removed puppy stains with absolute ease , easy to clean after use would highly recommend this product

Pros: Very easy to use and excellent to refresh carpets and remove light to medium stains.
Cons: This doesn't have the power to remove heavy stains. These would have to be treated first by hand and then gone over again with the cleaner.

This is so easy to use. I let my 13 year old niece use it in her room and she had no issues with operating it or on adding cleaner and emptying the dirty container. Dose such a great job and man i never knew how nasty my carpets were until i used this one time. I love it.

Great for an apartment!
was the perfect size for the apartment I'm in.works very well and the pro heat drys the carpets in like 15-20 minutes. and the upholstery attachment works great on the furniture. was about to do my whole living room & bedroom plus the hallway within 2 hours and everything was dry and put back! the hoover is a great product.It was very easy to put together only two screws that had to attach the handle using philllips head screwdriver ( not in the box) and within five minutes it's ready to use

Works very well
I like this carpet cleaner. I researched the Bissell Pet Pro and this Hoover Power Scrub Elite. Based on the reviews, both units were neck and neck. It seems as though both have a huge and positive following. My deciding factors on the Hoover over the Bissell were the following: The hoover has a 11 amp motor. The Bissell only had a 6.8 amp motor. The hoover has larger water bins. The hoover is a 12 inch wide cleaning foot print. The hoover has $189 as compared to the Bissell at $249. For me it became a clear decision. I couldn't be happier with it. Check out my picture. The proof is in the dirty water.

Very good shampooer
This was bought to replace an old Bissell Pro 2X heat unit. That one was good but always leaked. Again that was the older unit. I got this one since it had a different way of scrubbing the carpet with rotating brushes. It works well. Here's my pro/con summary: Pro: Great suction and sucks up most of the water it puts down. Did a great job pulling up the dirt Light weight compared to my old unit and easy to carry Like the separated clean/dirty water compartments. Con: Too much plastic (but this makes is lighter) Attaching the hand wand is a pain. This is my biggest gripe as this is one thing I liked using. Almost seems like they made it a pain so you buy the hand held unit only. Overall...I would buy this again even with my cons.

Extremely efficient machine!
First off,gladly,the set up was surprisingly easy and straightforward.Fearing that I might have needed a bit of time to setup this bad boy,I waited for more than a week for a clear schedule,and boy was I wrong.Barely over half an hour.This machine goes deep but what really impressed me most of all was the rinsing capacity.The transparent nozzle not only lets you see the water as it is being sucked from the carpet but it just kept sucking dirty water from areas that didn't even feel that wet to the touch.And like I said,you can clearly see it in process.I repeated the rinse multiple times until the draw-off got satisfactorily clearer,but also out of amazement at the efficiency involved.In the end what was left was a barely dampened carpet that was no where near to the inconvenienvce that I had anticipated from the start.Yes,I could actually sit on it and that's no exaggeration.For both price and quality you can hardly go wrong with this Hoover.
