Reliable Pro EP1000 Steam Cleaner
The new EnviroMate Pro EP1000 is a professional steam cleaning system with continuous water fill capabilities. With the best attachments and optional trolley, this steam
cleaner takes on the most challenging cleaning and sanitizing jobs with ease. The Reliable Pro EP1000 features the EMC2 system
which works to eliminate scale build up from minerals found in common tap water. After a closer examination of this unit, this is what we
What I like about the Reliable Pro EP1000
The two key features about the Reliable Pro are the boiler capacity and the power. The Pro EP1000 has a 5.7 L, total
capacity, and it puts steam out at 87 PSI. This is bigger and better than any other Reliable steam cleaner. Consistent pressure and
steam is vital to any any cleaning project.
This system crystallizes minerals, so instead of forming sediment and precipitating out
- collecting at the bottom of the boiler in the form of scale
- these lighter crystallized minerals are actually pushed out with the steam. This
means less sediment with less scaling, and in practical terms, you won't have to descale the tank as often nor worry about mineral built up in the
Like other models, the EP1000 features CSS which means no down time between refills. When the indicator light lets you know the water level
in the reservoir is low, simply fill and continuing steaming. Dual tanks mean you do not have to wait for the boiler to reheat each time you
refill the tank.
The Pro EP1000 has a unique feature that isn't found on any other steam cleaner. By taking hot water from the base of the boiler, you
can flush or rinse anything. For cleaning professionals, having the ability to use hot water to rinse while cleaning is a big plus for
removing debris and cleaning some of the toughest jobs.
The attachments of the Reliable Pro EP1000 look very familiar. They very closely resemble those of another well known manufacturer
of steam cleaners. Each is well built and durable. The attachments work well on both floors, walls and other surface and changing
them is easy.
Steam volume control on the handle is a must. It eliminates the need to bend down or manually adjust the steam level on the body
of the steam cleaner. Control on the handle adds convenient functionality that is a must for cleaning professionals.
What I do not like about the Reliable Pro EP1000
Though the Reliable Pro steam cleaner does lack a true tool caddy, with the purchase of the optional trolley, you can easily store
all of your attachments and any other cleaning supplies you may need as you steam. The trolley also remedies one other minor complaint I have
with the lack of full caster wheels. The larger two in the back do not roll as freely as casters, but in the trolley, this is a non-issue.
The EMC2 system is great for keeping the boiler clean. It really doesn't add much to the steam cleaning process itself. As a preventative
measure it is great but is not something that boosts the cleaning ability.
In all, I give the EnviroMate Pro EP1000 a 5 out of 5 stars rating. There is really little drawback to this industrial strength vapor steam
cleaner. The unit is durable and provides high quality, dry steam to meet all of your cleaning and sanitizing needs. The steam can neutralize
bacteria and viruses as well as kill bed bugs and dust mites. The deep cleaning power of hot steam can release odors and remove chemical
residue left from previous cleanings. Steam cleaning with the EP1000 is a basic but effective way to provide a healthier kind of clean, one free
