Hey guys.. Anyone have one or owned one. They look liked a copy verison of filter queen but in a upright. I called of there dealers and he gave me more info. He was like they last longer then a kirby i thought yeah right dude. Also they dont clog but only real vacuum that can say that is rainbow . Why doesnt rainbow sue dyson becuase dyson wasnt the first vacuum not to loose it cleaning performes. The dealer also. Said it has it pulls a 100 or more in water left . I thought clf had to with airflow and doesnt water left have to do with waterleft?

Filtropur

is a bagless upright created by the former president of HMI (Filter Queen). He had an upright vacuum manufactured overseas that could be sold and pitched as the "new Filter Queen upright" to the thousands of Filter Queen customers he obtained through the years. The link to the lawsuit is below.

As for the machine itself, I have seen one personally, and was not impressed. Big and bulky, and cheaply made. Bagless, using a cone shaped paper filter. A friend of mine that worked for an outlet of the company complained that many folks had to return their units several times for replacements, repairs or recalls. The pitch is similar to Filter Queen, with an almost identical demonstration. The unit is sold along with a Healthway air purifier (branded SFS I think, or something like that), duplicating the Filter Queen pitch. Back when the Amway Cleartrak and Fantom first came out, Filter Queen pitched customers that cyclonic action inside an upright was non effective the minute you tipped the unit back (unlike the FQ unit that would always stay in an upright position). The Filtropur unit keeps its dust bin in an upright position, even when it is tipped back. In looking at their website, it appears that is still their main selling point on the unit.

What a p.o.s.

I just saw a video on YouTube of this thing. I thought it was a joke, but it's real. It has to be the most expensive bagless to maintain.
