In Response to Re: Favorite Vacuum??:
I had a Rainbow for about 25 years. My Darling Husband left water in the basin several times and eventually the moisture damaged the motor. The cost to replace the motor was about the same as a new machine. I got a new Sears Kenmore HEPA vac. I like that one. The one I have now has a sensor that lets you know if the carpet is clean. Great when you are sucking up dog and cat hair. I did like the Rainbow and for 25 years use you can't complain about that. I think the only vac that I ever had that I did not like was an Oreck.

Glad you brought up about the Oreck. I was going to get one but it looked cheap but was not. It was light and I was worried that it wouldn't hold up so I got the hepa sears upright but I sill would love a new vacuum.
