Useful tips

Don't overfill it
Keep one eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker to maintain suction.

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.

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