Separate Liquid Compartments

This compartment of the Deluxe Washer is one of the features that I love the most. One holds the clean water while the other keeps the cleaning solution. The washer mixes the two liquids by itself!

You turn the dial to rinse if you want to use water only which is plus for pet owners.

I have to say that I categorically prefer this method to the old way where you mix the solution yourself in one big tank. This makes me happy knowing there is less chemicals left on the carpet for my two pets to run about on.

Not to mention the spill-free separate dirty water tank that comes with a quick-pour spout for easy emptying with no mess.

SpinScrub Technology

The Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Washer features the Hoover’s proven Spin-Scrub technology. The multiple brush system moves in an exclusive 360 degree counter rotation to clean the surrounding carpet fiber. This counter rotation enables the brush system to clear out the most stubborn pet and high-traffic stains rooted in the carpet.

The level of deep cleaning is first-class and gentle and hence helps extend life of the carpet. After each cleaning, I dismantle the brushes with ease to remove any hair or debris caught in them. A piece of cake!

Numerous Useful Attachments

The cleaner comes with lots of useful attachments. The typical upholstery tool is useful for cleaning car upholstery and furniture. There is also a powered hand-held tool that tackles more stubborn spots.

And if you live in a house with carpeted stairs, you will be pleased to know that there is a tool for stairs as well. A crevice tool is also included, but I’m not sure why it is essential.

Maybe if you had a bit of water trapped in the edges or corners of your room? I have never needed a crevice tool for a carpet washer before and haven't needed it yet with this one, but it is there if I ever do.


  • The dirty water tank features a yellow stopper that pops up when that tank is full
  • Its small and compact size makes it easy to navigate around the house
  • The washer is equipped with 8 feet and ready to use hose and an upholstery tool that deep cleans the stairs and hard-to-reach areas
  • The sprayer on the hose is wide enough and appropriate for large areas
  • The Deluxe Washer is easy and light to manage even with water tanks full.


  • The Tank Is Small Sized
  • Its small size requires more frequent filling of the water and solution as well as emptying of the dirty water tank.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Can you recommend the Deluxe Washer to pet owners?

A: I cannot more categorically recommend a product. I own two pets: a cat and a dog and I’ve used the washer to clean them two times. And I’m not complaining. All the suction parts are easily accessible to remove trapped hair.

Final verdict

If you are looking for a high-performing, small and efficient carpet washer, the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer is all that you needed. The Hoover FH50150 comes with the best features of the previous models that vocational cleaners have found most useful for optimal cleaning performance. The washer also incorporates an up to date design that makes it convenient to use and manage.

The only challenging concern I find with my Hoover Deluxe Washer is the problem with the hose falling out of the base frequently. If you only clean carpet with this Deluxe Washer and do not need the hand tools, this won't be a problem for you.
