Why We Should All Be Using Water Filtration Technology Vacuums!


Why We Should All Be Using Water Filtration Technology Vacuums!

You’ve probably never heard of a water filter vacuum cleaner, but what if we told you they’re more powerful, better for you, your family and your environment than conventional vacuums?

Let’s take it back to basics. Conventional and water filtered vacuums are provisionally the same: they both use air to collect dirt from the floor. The difference, however, is in the filter.


How a traditional vacuum works

A traditional vacuum collects dirt and grime through the air produced by a fan. The dust then travels through a filtration process that removes particles from the air and then gets trapped inside a dirtbag or dustbin. The debris then remains there until it gets emptied or thrown away. During the emptying of the dust-bags, dirty particles then float around the air, eventually falling back onto the floor. The rest of the dirt then gets trapped in the filter or the machine and gets propelled out the back of the vacuum when it gets turned back on again. Not so effective.

Traditional vacuum cleaner filtration systems can cause significant problems; they frequently break down and are costly to replace. Our homes welcome a lot of dirt, from the soles of our shoes, what our dogs bring in, kids running around and playing outside, collecting more dirt, and all the extra excrements that fly in through our windows and doors. All these impurities then get trapped in our rugs, carpets and floorboards, then float around in the air we breathe - sneakily and silently hiding in our clothes, bedding, throws and furniture.



A never-ending cycle

When we repeatedly run our traditional vacuum cleaners over these surfaces, over and over again, without being collected, we end up breaking down the particles so much they eventually get beaten into fine dust. This dust then builds up and clogs the pores of our vacuum cleaner. This then leads to the air being unable to pass through the fan efficiently, which means that the air used to suck up the grime is impaired, leaving it unable to pick up the dirt at all, as it can’t pass through to the filter.


What’s hiding in the closet?

When we’ve finished cleaning, we then proceed to store our vacuum cleaners in the closet and presumably not think about them again. However, things happen whilst the vacuum is left untouched. A traditional vacuum filter continues to collect germs, mould, fungi, E. coli, streptococci, pet dander, smoke odour, bacteria, food particles, bugs and other kinds of other odours that eventually grow and morph into new bacterias.

Now, we could attempt to prevent this from happening by cleaning, sanitising, or disposing of the used filter and cleaning the vacuum itself. But, let’s be honest; you’ve got to be extremely committed to cleaning and the overall upkeep of your machine if you have the time, or patience, to endure such a task. Realistically, we leave our vacuums in the closet, untouched, presumably with a dust bag that’s half-full, sitting, waiting, peacefully collecting germs until their next use - and only to be emptied when it’s reached absolute full capacity.

And it doesn’t stop there; after leaving all the bugs to fester and grow in the cupboard, we then proceed to fire the machine back up again on its next use. When we do this, we often notice a particular sour smell erupt from the fan - or back of the machine. This recognisable smell is caused by the build-up of all the bacteria and germs that have matured over time. These germs then get sprouted out the back of the vacuum and infect the air we directly breathe, adding to the dirt already lying on our surfaces.



There’s another way!

“See, smell and feel the difference of water filtration,” says Quantum X co-inventor, Randy Spencer. Water filtration vacuum cleaners use - you guessed it - water, as opposed to a manmade, physical filter to sift through the debris. Even though the dirt, dust and waste get collected in the same way as a traditional machine, the special water compartment absorbs - rather than holds - the dirt. Users can then see the water in their vacuum turn color as more grime is collected. Therefore, the dirtier the water gets, the cleaner your home! As a result, the air that propels out the back of the machine is generally very clean, free of debris, and even free of pathogens too!


How water filtration works

In simple terms, a water filtration vacuum uses water to ‘wash’ the dirty air that enters into the vacuum. In fact, it doesn’t have a ‘filter’ in the same sense a traditional vacuum has. There are two main differences with a Quantum X vacuum: one, the water basin insert contains an antibacterial micro silver lining that kills germs, bacteria and viruses on contact, and two, the cleansed air then travels into the water tank where all the dirt and allergens get trapped in the water and stay there until they’re disposed of - either by throwing the dirty water down the toilet or outside.
In more technical terms, the hose attaches directly to the main body of the vacuum. The air is then brought in to the machine by a separator that divides the air from the dirty water. Like a tornado, turbulence is caused by the air and water that captures the dust, dirt, pollen, and other tiny impurities trapped in the basin. Clean air then comes out of the machine - similar to what you'd see after a rainstorm outside.



Dry vs wet pick up

Traditional vacuums are limited to only collecting dry particles as the vacuum will break down when met with liquid. As a water filter houses water itself, it has no issue collecting wet messes. By proxy, they work on any floor surface, too! So now, there's no need to use endless kitchen towels that are typically used - in an attempt to soak up wet spills!


Benefits overview of a water filtration vacuum cleaner

  • No more buying and replacing filters
  • Customise fragrances in your home
  • Great for everyday spills
  • Better for the environment
  • Eliminates harmful allergies and pathogens
  • Say goodbye to pet hair
  • Cleaner, better air quality
  • Versatile and convenient
  • More energy efficient than traditional vacuums Downsides

There used to be two significant downsides to a water filtered vacuum. The first is that they are heavier than traditional machines. This is because water can be heavy, but now with an upright machine, weight shouldn’t be so much of an issue. And secondly, water vacuums are typically expensive, costing over 2000 USD. But this is where Quantum X comes in: offering amazing technology at reasonable prices that compete with traditional vacuums!


Here’s the thing, though. Just because a vacuum cleaner claims it “uses water” - doesn’t mean it necessarily uses water filtration. This is what makes Quantum X different: as the world’s first and only upright water vacuum, Quantum X provides an adjustable body, an extra 18-inches of extendable reach - so users can clean all those tough to reach places (behind the sofa, tv cabinet, and more) without having to move furniture out the way! It has a 4-inch clearance and is fully rotatable to 180 degrees. It also has a 10-foot extending hose for both wet and dry pick up - so it can be used to mop the floors, clean the windows and pick up liquids!

This machine is phenomenal. It helps make your home a cleaner, safer environment that rids toxins, pathogens, allergens, bugs, bacteria, viruses and more! I’ve got mine - have you got yours?
