11 Reasons For

Excellent Owner Reviews

On average, based on 16 owner reviews this vacuum has an outstanding overall owner rating.

Thomas Vacuums Have Excellent Reviews

On average Thomas high maximum input power vacuums have excellent ratings compared to other brands as do all vacuum cleaners manufactured by Thomas.

Quite Big Operating Radius

Across all the high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for more than two years the operating radii range from 2.5m to 27m, and the average operating radius is 9.9m. With an operating radius of 11 meters, the Aqua+ Pet & Family has one of the bigger operating radii amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

There are a number of other 11m operating radius vacuum cleaners currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Rowenta RO5565[plb_1721124_price].

If you want a vacuum cleaner with a bigger operating radius then you might also want to look at the AEG UOALLFLOOR[plb_2144141_price] (12m and higher rated); or the Metabo ASR 25 L SC[plb_2694701_price] (11.2m and cheaper), or the AEG UODELUXE[plb_2144142_price] (12m and cheaper).
