Flexible setup and easy operation
An advanced digital panel manages all powered functions and displays convenient indications. Steam status, operating temperatures, pressures, and maintenance reminders on the display’s broad face are easy to read.
Only 10 minutes or less is needed to produce highly-pressurized stream after the boiler is initially switched on. This step is quicker than that of many large steam machines. Even better, 60-90 minutes of constant steaming is possible with a light touch on the pressure control.
Ordinary tap water can be used and once the tank is filled up and the boiler switched on, the first batch of steam will be ready in some 8 minutes. A full load usually brings at least 60 minutes of continuous steam output, which can be extended with careful adjustments using the variable-pressure control.
Homeowners with swathes of tile and glass to clean will come to rely on this machine. While steaming, the output pressure should be set to low as you wipe down bath glass partitions and mirrors, which quickly removes soap scum.
It is best to begin on low setting before progressively increasing the flow, adapting the output pressure to conditions. The supplied corner tool with its microfiber padding works great for rubbing off cloth stains until they progressively fade away.
Initially applying steam at medium or high pressure to dislodge dirt, followed by use of the dryer low setting, works well for clearing ceramic tiles. This technique effectively dries floors for a streak-free finish and you will not need to worry about sliding on wet tiles, either.
Be aware that the steam produced is not completely dry. Much dampness still accompanies each blast, so it is always a good idea to first test the hot flowing vapors on materials that are not known to be water-resistant.
Before each refill, you must switch the boiler off and let things cool off before opening the tank. You will then have to wait again for a newer batch of steam is generated. There is safety interlock that prevents the possibility of burns while switching attachments, for added peace of mind.
The boiler still needs to drain after every 30 hours of operation, though. This need is signaled by a convenient indicator on the panel. This quick procedure is vital to maintaining performance over the years.
