We have a high-maintenance dog and light-colored carpet. Yes, we do take her out quite often, but unfortunately, frequent indiscretions abound. That's where the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe 50150 comes in. Any carpet cleaner requires a bit of a time investment, depending on how much area must be cleaned. Like its competitors, this model does, too. As a fairly compact machine, it requires fairly frequent water changes and hot water additions, but it does a very good job for a decent price! Speaking of hot water, I fill the reservoir with hot tap water as users on Amazon suggested. The machine came with Hoover brand carpet cleaner, and we often buy refills of the Pets Plus version. The solution works fine and I'd rather not gamble on another brand, since this liquid cleaner is supposed to go with this machine and is backed by Hoover. When this Hoover carpet cleaner breaks, if we can't get it fixed for a decent price, we'll buy another one, or the next generation model. So yes, we'd buy it again! 4 stars.
