Rated 5 out of 5 by Dee102 SpotBot Pet Knows ALL the Tricks!!
I have an elderly dog who has had trouble controlling her "issues" on the carpets. I had an upright carpet cleaner, but it was way too heavy for me to carry up and down stairs.
Enter SpotBot Pet! My carpets look and smell like NEW!! BOTH upstairs and downstairs!!
SpotBot Pet -- Affordable / User Friendly / Effective -- Those are pretty good tricks for a little machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bboop43 SpotBot Pet Carpet Cleaner
I had previously purchased the other spot Bot that is least expensive. Now I know why. This one does what it says you can sit it on a spot and walk away and it will do the work for you. It is a much better machine than the other. This hose is easy to work with and it is not laying on the machine and create problems with getting it caught and then you have a hose leak. I can't believe that this machine does it so well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pals Spot Bot vs. JRT
At first I loved my spot bot!!! I have 5 dogs, 3 of which are JRT's and one of those JRT's is kind of special. As in his nickname is short bus and face planting into walls is a full time pursuit. Oh and he pees on everything. Sometimes they make messes. Ok they make a lot of messes, but hey what an opportunity to try out the Spot Bot! For the first few months the spot bot was going to town, working great, I loved it. LOVED IT. Then disaster hit. The "special" JRT, named Archie fell deeply in love with the spot bot. Every time I took the spot bot out, he would be eyeballing it with a certain lecherous look. Then he started creeping closer until one day I heard this horrible noise. Somewhere between a screeh and a yodel. As I raced into the living room, Archie had the spot bot on its side, totally defenseless and was attempting to make love to the poor helpless spot bot. His "junk" was being "cleaned" in a truly deviant manner. #I'm still in therapy after witnessing this event# I separated the two would be lotharios and gave Archie a firm talking to and proceeded to ground him after explaining the futility of such a doomed relationship. All to no avail. Archie began to pursue the spot bot at all hours of the day and I would often come home to find the spot bot and Archie smoking cigarettes in the bathroom. The spot bot could no longer be used when Archie was in the house, because as soon as I plugged it in and pressed the deep seated stain button, Archie would latch onto the spot bot like a hot house hooker and proceed to shove the spot bot all around the room. It was beyond embarrassing. I then took drastic measures and locked the spot bot in a closet and bought Archie a subscription to Jack Bunny. This seemed to help. Then last month I noticed that the spot bot was mysteriously loosing all cleaning fluid, yet very little was going into the dirty water bin. Hmmmm.....so I filled the spot bot and all the fluid drained out right before my eyes!! Yet it wasn't on the floor and I could find no sign of it whats so ever. I had to conclude the spot bot had sprung a leak, likely as a result of the repeated assaults from the JRT. I shall be attempting to have our beloved spot bot repaired. I would like to suggest that the limited warranty, such as it is, be extended to cover amorous JRT's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Petlover Love it but I wish we can change the hose ourselves
This is our second spotbot. We have dogs and children so this comes in handy. Our first machine lasted 5 years but then the hose broke and we had to bring it to a dealer to have a new hose put on but..it was cheaper to buy a new machine. If the hose could be replaced by the person who bought it ...it would be great. All and all I love this machine and I would recomend this it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by macey23 Not thrilled......Great for the first year
Purchased this machine in December of 2013. Lasted great for about a year. Now, the tank leaks (yes, I've checked the duck gasket and its installed correctly) and the bottom has broken off at the screws from the top. Very disappointed because I loved it! Came online to look at options of purchasing a new one but finding that most of the reviews state the same issue. Might have to look at a different brand which is a shame because I really liked this machine the first year I used it. Disappointed that it worked perfectly until the warranty was done. Looks like a redesign is needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by liljojo65 Leaks but.....
My SpotBot Pet has leaked from day 1 but I still like it. Mine doesn't look exactly like the photos here so maybe they improved it? I love the set it and walk away feature but as in at least one video I saw I highly recommend using the hose to suck up remaining cleaning solution left behind. Mine leaks in many areas but as long as I empty any remaining cleaning solution from the tank I can store it without incident. If it wasn't for the leaking I would have given the SpotBot all 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kat If You Have Pets with Fur, You Need This Machine
My son and I purchased a Bissel Spot Bot the first year it came out (back when dinosaurs still walked the Earth). We have six cats, but have had more, up to 13, and we've used this machine HUNDREDS of times if not more. There hasn't been a stain it couldn't take out, including dried on pet stains, even the time I dripped white paint while painting the trim around the doors onto my brand new carpet. It took three run-throughs, but that paint came out! Well, today that wonderful, hard-working machine finally gave up the ghost. Not to worry, because we have two more Spot Bots in the closet. My son thought that because we liked them so much, they would be discontinued, much like treasured restaurants that close and TV shows that go off the air with record high ratings...he purchased me two more that we've kept all this time. Today I brought one out. Bissel, I am so grateful for this machine. Good job on a great product!
