Useful tips

Switch tools quickly

Just slide your chosen tool onto the inlet pipe until you hear a click.

Wash the filter regularly

Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Leave to dry fully (at least 12 hours) before refitting.

Don't overfill it

To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.
