New Design Hose & SS Wand
[Add $109.00]

Description Russian
To be used with "E-series", "E2 Gold" and "E2 Blue" Rainbow sweeper models
Will not work with 2011 Rainbow model (black color). If you need Aquamate for that model click HERE.


Shampoo system to use with your Rainbow vacuum that will do all scrubbing and rubbing for you.
It has a rotating brush roll underneath the unit that scrubs the dirt of the carpet.

This is triple insulated. Cutout in the handle receptacle is not only difference. It is wired differently inside to minimize the risk of water getting onto electric contacts. Note the cutouts to the sides of the opening for plug, ones that reed arrows are pointing at. This is the easiest way to tell if you have correct hose.

Hose compatible with Aquamate III

If the receptacle of the handle looks like this - you should NOT use this hose. You need to purchase a new style electrified hose. Hose pictured below will NOT work with this Aquamate:

Rainbow electric hose
Having stainless steel pipe would help but it is not necessary. Because of water chrome-plated wand would rust inside a bit but it but it still will remain functional.
Rainbow ss wand

  • Aquamate
  • Printed Manual
  • Sheet with hints on usage
  • 16oz. shampoo concentrate

Setup and shampoo:
  • Blue water tank has 2 compartments - one for just tap water and another for Aquamate shampoo diluted with water (only cool tap water should be used). Fill up both.
  • Start with Rainbow vacuum water basin empty. For larger houses we recommend getting 4 quart water pan that needs to be emptied less often.
  • Use stainless steel power nozzle wand and new style electrified hose to connect Aqua Mate to the vacuum.
  • Work on about 3 feet X 3 feet patches of carpet at a time.
    There are 4 modes that Aquamate will operate in:
    1. Pedal lifted to the very TOP position. Hose trigger pressed - brush rotating - this will dispense soapy water and brush roll will work the solution into the rug.
    2. Pedal pressed half way down to MIDDLE position. Hose trigger pressed - brush rotating - this will dispense clean water to rinse the carpet and brush roll will continue scrubbing it.
    3. Pedal pressed all the way down to BOTTOM position. Hose trigger pressed - brush rotating - this will not dispense any liquid but brush roll will continue scrubbing the rug.
    4. Pedal pressed all the way down to BOTTOM position. Hose trigger released - brush is not rotating - now you can go over the area you have just shampooed and pick up the water.
  • You can use those positions in the way you see fit. If you ended up spraying quite a bit of soapy solution you may want to go to position 4 before you rinse the rug (position 2)
  • Move to the next patch of the carpet or rug.
Cleanup and Storage:
  • It is important that you finish shampooing with RINSING phase.
  • Dump the remaining liquid out of the blue plastic container and rinse with clean water.
  • Disconnect the hose from long extension and use it to vacuum up any liquids left in the system itself.
  • Lift the brush roll (you have to just pull it) to access the spray nozzle and vacuum it up too.
  • Remove and clean the clear plastic and under it.
