How could you have a product for longer than the company has been in business?

I just purchased a Hyla after a very friendly man demonstrated it for us in our home. At first we explained to him that we could not afford such an expensive vaccum but that we did like the product. He then asked us to use our phone to call his boss. After doing so he told us that he worked out a GREAT deal for us. He said that his boss agreed to sell us the Hyla for $1,600 dollars. We told him thank you and that we realized what a great deal that was, but it was still too much for our budget. He got on the phone again because w=he though we were such, "great people" and that he knew we wanted it for our son because of his health problems. After being on the phone for awhile he then tells us that his boss understands our concern for our childs health so much that he is willing to offer us an incredible deal! He told us that if we got 4 people within 14 days just to allow them to demonstrate the Hyla in their homes, that he would personally bring us a $1000 dollar check which would bring the cost down from $1,600 to $600!!! So we agreed, knowing we could get 4 people to agree to the demo. We then had the 4 people within the 14 days view the Hyla. No check. Finally we called the sales office and the man said that Derek (the man who came to our house to do the demo) is, "no longer with us." and that we are resposible for the $1,600!!! I politely tried to explain to the man over the phone what had happened and he actually snickered and told me it was out of his hands!!!!????

I'm a Rainbow dealer too. As far as I know HYLA is from Slovenia and they claim it was made in Germany?

I purchased my HYLA NST in 2003 and still love it! The dirt and dust go into the water, not back out into the air. Also, the disinfectant deodorizer does work great for "purifying" the air. Molds, mildews and spores are airborn and this machie is great for people like me with severe allergies and people with asthma/resperatory problems. If you are looking for a miracle, do not buy this machine or any other. Would I buy another? Absolutely! I actually just purchased one for my daughter and son in-law for Christmas because they are constantly borrowing mine!!

I bought my Hyla 6 years ago. My sales guy was a joke, an ass, and a liar. When I moved in my new home a year later I decided the Hyla was a pain to use when I have multiple staircases. I bought a Kirby (works good, breaks your back, is difficult to change out attachments) and let my mom have my Hyla. 3years after giving the Hyla to my mom I find myself looking for the purchase of a new Hyla without going through a crooked salesman. It is a great machine that does a great job. It is a shame people get ripped off by the sales people. They would have a better name if sold in retail stores. I got my Hyla for $500 because I did research, called the "boss" and didn't let them run over me. Mine was still in it's plastic, unused. I paid cash, however, and believe that made a difference. The sales guy was pissed and made threats because we screwed him out of commission...he disappeared after my husband made it clear that empty threats only get you promises.

There are a lot of dishonest people in this industry. The one on the Top is for sure Scott Morris. He failed with Pro Aqua, because he is a looser. Has nothing to do with the company or the vacuum. Whereever he goes he leaves a mess. His new scam is selling Roboclean. I am sure for not too long.

We bought our Hyla last July and LOVE it! We don't love the company we purchased it from. We were promised so many things and got not one of them! Our friends who referred us, were promised a carpet cleaning attachment and a few other freebies, and here, 7 months later, have nothing. She is a squeaky wheel and called them every Monday for months and the owner in our area told her they were backordered but she was first on his list when a shipment came in. She had a baby in December and wasn't able to call every week... she called on Friday and the owner told her it was her fault they missed out on it cause she hadn't stayed in contact. Garbage, right?

i would like to know how water can purify air..some of the folks on here that have bought the Hyla vac were told a big lie..some say you have to put something in the water to purify the air,wouldnt it be the same as using febreze..i dont think u can do it,just think about it..if you put a child in a tub of water and a bubble comes out from behind and it has a stinky smell,did the water purify anything...you might smell some soap but i am sure it wont smell the same...and the robocleaner just a new thing to take your money..honestly..what deep cleaning will it do,dang your better off with a broom...i guess some folks dont want to know the truth on what they are buying cause they dont want to know they were taken..thing is all you have to do is ask..and listen to what they tell you..sometimes you can smell what they are selling...

So I just got hired on as a dealer for my local hyla company. The local company name is HydroAir owned by a guy named Mike. We were promised 600 a month base pay if a quota was met. With up to 500$ cash commission off each sell, if a quota was met but the whole thing as a bit sketchy. I have a feeling I am not gonna see my money, anybody work for these guys in Utah have anything to say?

Rainbow has been in business since 1936. They are the ones who invented the water technology that hyla uses. Without Rainbow Hyla would not exist. Why don't you look up the BB rating for Rexair and also their networth as a company before you defame a company.

I have had a Hyla for 15 years. It is the best vacuum I have ever used. Replacement parts are pricey but after the initial investment worth the cost. I would recommend the cleaner anytime.

I have a Rainbow E2 2 Speed! For you Hyla and Rainbow experts out there. I have questions

The E2 has a hepa filter on it that is sealed. I took the hepa filter off to examine it to see how it looked, and it actually looked REALLY good after almost 5 years. But when you take the HEPA filter off and actually look INSIDE the machine through that little hole that the hepa goes into, you see like a white HAZE......It almost looks sort of like dust. It's not horribly bad and there is NO smell at all. Only a clean smell........

But I'm wondering what the hell it is? It some sort of dust getting past the water and into the machine.....If so. How do you clean it? There's not directions in Rexairs manual....I've always changed the water frequently and never vacuumed anything non-wettable (at least that I'm aware of. The machine still looks new I've taken such good care of it......

But I'm sort of paranoid now that the Rainbow might be losing airflow since it MUST operate with the hepa filter. And if it's a white haze, it's not going to show up on the filter so you really have NO way to know if the filter is clogged, since it's white as well.

Do Hyla's have a hepa filter? Has anyone ever looked INSIDE of a used Hyla? Does the motor get dirty?

Just curious. I like the Rainbow a lot and it's definitely less dusty. But I don't want the airflow to decrease from the hepa and me not know it

In answer to your question about how the dust gets in there is when you use it and pick up alot of dirt it turns to mud in the bottom of the basin. As it thickens up the water the water level lowers allowing dust to make it past the water. The heps filter keeps it from getting back out of the machine. There are instructions in your book about removing the hepa filter and cleaning it. Remove the filter and let water run through it. Let it sit overnight and dry. Reinstall the filter and let it run on LOW for 24 hours. If you get the filter wet and then run it on high before it completely dries it will blow a hole through it. Make sure the water separator on the bottom of the machine is clean also. There is a small toothbrush there to do that with. That could also cause dust to escape the water. Hope this helps. To my knowledge and I may be wrong Hyla doesn't have a hepa. Again, I may be wrong on that.

From what I've read I think Hyla's have some cheap foam filter.
I never let the water in the basin turn to mud. EVER. I dump it way before it gets to that point. The separator is always cleaned pretty frequently.
There is no brush with my 2 speed E series. I think those only came with the one speed E series.
The Rainbow manual says the hepa can be washed and then placed back on and then to run the Rainbow on HIGH speed for 30 minutes with a towel behind the Rainbow to catch any water it may blow out.
I hate to wash it because it doesn't even look that dirty. Pretty impressive for a hepa filter after five years. Then again, there could be microscopic particles in there. My main concern was the white haze inside the machine. I just emailed Rexair themselves asking them about it.
I do notice another thing. It looks like Hyla parts are much harder to find than Rainbow parts. If you Google Hyla parts, it's touch and go. If you Google Rainbow parts. "LOOK OUT"

I sold rainbow for years.You shoukd for sure have a brush maybe it got lost before you got it. It only takes one time vacuuming your house to lower the level due to the dirt thickening into mud. I in no way meant to imply you were using dirty water. It happens to everyone. When you get done you will notice the water has dropped below the center knob in the bowl. As far as a quick test, remove the back cover and see how much air is coming through the filter. That is a good indication of whether the filter needs cleaned. In my personal experience I have seen more than one blown out filter from turning the machine on high with a wet filter. Just trying to help. As far as the white dust it is really nothing to worry about as all your bearings and moving parts are sealed against it. Sounds like you take good care of your machine so it should last you quite awhile.
