About the E Series
With regular upright bag vacuums, dust particles
escape through the pinpoint size holes in the bags. The water canister that sits
under the Rainbow actually traps dirt, dust, etc. in the water as you vacuum.
You actually see the water getting darker and darker. You can vacuum everyday
with a regular bag vacuum cleaner and still not get your carpet as clean as you
can with one pass of the Rainbow!
How the Rainbow vacuum cleaner works
Most vacuum cleaners trap dust and dirt inside a
vacuum or dust bag. Instead of using a vacuum bag the Rainbow
uses water to trap dirt and dust. There is a pan
or reservoir of water inside Rainbow vacuum cleaners which is
emptied after use. It is quite a unique vacuum cleaner.
Rexair's slogan is "Wet dust won't fly!"
Rexair says there system works best because, most dirt
particles contain an electrical charge that is opposite from the
electrical charge of water. Opposites attract and thus the
dirt and dust is trapped in the water.
Rexair - Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner
Rexair history goes back about 80 years. John W.
Newcombe invented a machine called the Separator. This machine
was made to separate dust and other material from the air. In
1926, Leslie H. Green became noticed the Separator and thought it
could be applied for home use. Green and Newcombe joined
forces and created the first bagless cleaner in 1927.
In 1929, Green formed the Rexair corporation.
Rexair means "King of the Air". In 1936, T. Russ Hill joined
Rexair and came up with the idea of incorporating water into the
design to trap dust and dirt. The Rainbow vacuum cleaner has
been using waer to remove dust and dirt ever
