Hi Winnie. Your post is timely! I was just at a store that supplies such 0-rings and they measured the original I brought in as 568-018. (Here is a website that supplies them and has a great chart https://www.theoringstore.com/index.php?... ) Where I ordered them from here in town I paid about 50 cents for a ring, bought 2 and they are going to mail them too me when they get them in stock. I’ll report back when I try the size out to confirm it fits and works like new.
Hey Syed. Totally agree … if your mop (or anything else for that matter) is not working properly and still under warranty simply return it.
Hi Shama. I avoid buying mops or other such devices that can’t be repaired … in other words have no screws. I can say the screws that assemled the one in this tutorial are small-medium sized and the head requires a phillips/star screw driver. Good luck :)
Hi slaven001. Also, if you can clean the plastic water feed-line (that takes a 90 degree bend towards the parts repaired in Step 5) as well as the delivery spray line (after the plunger/piston/cylinder) you've eliminated those as possible problems. Stick with it as it is abit fussy and can be frustrating taking it apart a few times to get it right. Good luck :)
UPDATE: I repaired another of these recently and all went as outlined above, yeah!
UPDATE: Be sure to not pull the rod inside the handle out too far (thx to J.Hill for the tip)
UPDATE: The second mop repaired had 4 screws. Unscrew all of them and move the red sleeve down so you can open the main pump body.
Thanks for your kind words :)
I've noticed that Vidal, Velida (?) ... some other brand in Canada makes a similar product that looks exactly the same as the Rubbermaid ones I have. I know this as we looked for the Rubbermaid recently for mother-in-law and almost bought the look-alike by mistake. I confirmed the screw situation and we bought the Rubbermaid one (Canada) which is identical to the one in this repair.
That said I still have another one to fix!
awesome Afsana .... reminds me I still have one to fix. The original one (featured here) is still working great.
another mop saved from the garbage! still working fine at this end. Glad it worked for you Susie.
