Fareham Clean but time poor
- Squirt is so quiet it's only the kittens trying to lap up the water she squirts out that remind me she's working ! My floors haven't been this clean in years, 2-3 minute set up put her in a corner somewhere and forget it. I had to decide between a new roomba with a 230 and a scooba, having had 530 for around 10 years and being finally fed up with fixing her, for the sake of less maintenance alone I went for an 886 and the 230 as my smaller sized home (86m2) is full of 'stuff' and 4 cats :) I'm absolutely delighted with the 886 performance and the 230, which I thought would be a compromise as it doesn't actually suck the dirty water up, is really making a difference in our home the reason being is as it only takes a couple of minutes and no effort, the whole house is being mopped 3-4 times a week not once in a blue moon (starting 3 new home based businesses wrecked the cleaning schedule) With the simplicity of the build of the 230 I can see her lasting many years. Excellent buy.
- The charger plug in thingy annoyed me at first, I like to switch plug outlets off, the size of it means it covers the switch on the plug plate(uk) but I've now just put it permanently on in a back corner of the kitchen worktop that no hands go anywhere near and click the little battery in and out as needed, brilliant chore saver and worth the money.
