I love this product! I was frustrated as others seem to be with the battery life. I've been keeping it plugged in continuously, or at least for a few hours right before use, and the battery life is much better!! The only con I have is that it is getting harder to find the special filters .If the product gets discontinued. I really hope it doesn't but I am stocking up on filters and on another swiffer sweeper vac for my almost finished basement.
I love my swifter vac it just doesn't last long enough. The battery doesn't last long enough to vacuum my area before it has to be recharged and its not a quick charge. Seems like it takes forever to recharge.
I have sang the praises of the vac for many years. I got new wood floors in my kitchen and hallway and this vac was wonderful. This was about two years ago, since then I have given it as a gift to a friend and my daughters . But lately is will not hold it charge and this is very disappointing. From reading other reviews this seems to be a major problem. I keep charged at all times and sometimes it will run until I have finished, but then again it want last but a few minutes. Can I get a replacement battery at a reasonable cost or is it the charge?. I really love this product and the other Swiffer products I use, but I'm not happy with my Swiffer Vac right now!! Thanks!
The Swiffer sweeper vac is the best tool I have found for my solid surface floors. I love it. It is wonderful for picking up pet hair , dusting floors, as well as picking up little crumbs of stuff that I constantly find on my floors . It is quick and easy to use. I am on my second sweeper because the battery life through many charges doesn't last. While it is new, I can vacuum all of my floors on one charge. It would be wonderful if the battery pack could be easily replaced.. You can buy a battery pack through third party, but I couldn't get it apart and all the pieces fell out. I would even be willing to pay more for the product if the battery pack were easily replaceable and sold as the filters and dust pads are. I give it four stars for this reason.
I recently bought the Swifter Wetjet and have been very happy with it until the handle broke after very few uses. I thought about replacing the handle but I decided to repair it myself. I bought a 45 degree PVC Conduit Tube, a door bell button and a 13/16 spade bit. I removed the existing handle from the mop, (There are 4 screws total) Two in the handle, I below the switch cover and one at the end of the handle) I fitted the PVC Conduit over the existing mop and drilled a hole for a round door bell button and cut the existing switch from the mop and connected the wires to the door bell button and inserted into the hole I drilled. I fitted a wood plug at the end of PVC Conduit. The handle works perfect and will not break. (I had to drill the end of the conduit to 13/16 to fit over the mop pipe.) The 45 degree PVC Conduit fit very tight on the mop so no screws or fastners of any sort was needed.
Plus Side: Swiffer Wetjet is a real time saver and lets you keep floors cleaner without having to break your back getting out a heavy water bucket and cleaning products. I have a dog and a cat and a small kitchen that everything gets tracked in to. I don't know what I would do without it. I use in on my laminate and vinyl flooring and it cuts my cleaning time in half. Down side: I still get down on my hands an knees to get into the corners and under cabinets as the Swiffer just does not get into the tight places as good as I like. Another minus is that we have had two of them and both of them have broken in less than a year. The first one broke where the two pieces are joined on the pole and the other broke in less than a few months on the handle. I can't keep buying these so I wish they would make them sturdier!!!
Hello all at swifter, Have always loved the swifter jet and my previous one lasted over two years with no problems what so ever. Unfortunately I purchased a new one around six weeks ago and changed the batteries twice but to no avail. Do not have my receipt because did not expect problems with such a brilliant product. Is there anything you can do to help!! Loyal customer, Sean
i like the wet-jet swifter it does an excellence job but the problem i have is the handle is too weak . i have broken two so far .
Don't get me wrong, I love my sweeper vac but after two years of use it will not charge all the way up. It will only run about 5 minutes. I have charged for 2 days and it still will only run for a short while. Before this I was able to go through my entire home. Any suggestions as to what to do? Is it time for a new one or can this one be fixed? Model fs4000
Not a bad unit to have around for minor mop ups. it's convenient and does a pretty good job. A long way from the old "nasty" mop and water days where you had to hand wring-dry the nasty mop. (ugh!). Replacing the batteries was tricky... I finally discovered how: remove the cleaning solution bottle. It won't tell you that's where the batteries go, but trust me- it's there - right next to the mop pole. Simply push the plastic compartment UP as the arrow & sign indicate. The little door swings open, and you can then pop in FOUR 'AA' batteries. Reverse the instructions used to OPEN the compartment to CLOSE it. Off you go my friends. HAPPY MOPPING!!
