Handle Broke and Home Fix

I recently bought the Swifter Wetjet and have been very happy with it until the handle broke after very few uses. I thought about replacing the handle but I decided to repair it myself. I bought a 45 degree PVC Conduit Tube, a door bell button and a 13/16 spade bit. I removed the existing handle from the mop, (There are 4 screws total) Two in the handle, I below the switch cover and one at the end of the handle) I fitted the PVC Conduit over the existing mop and drilled a hole for a round door bell button and cut the existing switch from the mop and connected the wires to the door bell button and inserted into the hole I drilled. I fitted a wood plug at the end of PVC Conduit. The handle works perfect and will not break. (I had to drill the end of the conduit to 13/16 to fit over the mop pipe.) The 45 degree PVC Conduit fit very tight on the mop so no screws or fastners of any sort was needed.

I have purchased to wet jets. I love them unfortanatly I wish I didn't have to keep buying them because the top handle keeps breaking. My second wetjet has broke and I refuse to buy another one. I would also like to try the other swiffer stuff like the sweeper and vac, but I'm very hesitant since I have had bad experiences with the wet jet. Right now I am with out a mop due to poor qualilty. I said that I would recommend it to a friend because they are convienent while working. So if you have money to buy a new one every six months to a year then great!!! Bottom line I just want a new one!!!

Handle keeps breaking

By vlindell

from Undisclosed

Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

Has happened on three Swifter's. There are numerous complaints regarding this flaw. Have your handles been reinforced yet?? Is this a good time to buy yet another one. Love the product otherwise. Thanks, Mike

Very dissatisfied with product

By MaryS

from Highland Beach, FL

Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

I recently bought my second wet jet. The first one broke after about 6 months but I decided to give it another try as I've heard very good feedback about Swiffer products. I started using the second one and after about a week the holes clogged and I couldnt use it. I had to get a pin and clear it out and even then the liquid just dribbled out. Now every time i use it I have to clean out the wholes , it dribbles out for a while then it finally starts to work properly. I would never recommend this product or buy another one

Another broken handle

By Graniz

from Elizabeth City, NC, USA

Pros

  • easy to use-no mess

Cons

  • broken handle intermittent spray

Best Uses

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

    I was shocked when mopping to have the handle break off! I had no idea this was such a common problem. I love the concept of all the Swiffer products but will look at other brands that may not be as cheaply made. My other problem with it is that at times both sprays do not work.

    Sprayers Stop Functioning

    By Displeased

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

    I rarely review products on line, but I am making an exception for the Swiffer WetJet. The product does a great job of cleaning floors when it works! However, the sprayers just stop working. We have now had two. In the first one the left sprayer stopped working; in the second one, the right sprayer never worked. The suggestions made by Swiffer's online customer service person provided no help. Swiffer engineers need to address this problem. It is a shame that such a worthwhile product is so technically flawed!

    Only one jet works!

    By Animal10

    from Mentor, OH

    Pros

    • easier to use on heavy dirt

    Cons

    • jets do not work

    Best Uses

      Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

      I have had the WetJet for less than a year and find that only one jet works. Also it appears that the pads do not absorb the cleaner as there is a large accumulation when the pad is removed. Would appreciate any suggestions. Although it is not a huge expenditure, I don't feel that I should have to inspect the unit to make it work properly and the excess cleaner when the pad is removed is quite annoying.

      Great product but weak handle

      By Domainman

      from Omaha, NE, USA

      Pros

      • Quick
      • Simple

      Cons

      • breaking handle
      • Streaking

      Best Uses

        Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

        I use the Swiffer WetJet every week, often many times a week and it cleans wonderfully when you have a new pad (if the pad has any dirt on it, it will streak) but the handle has broken on every one of these, four, we have purchased. This is because it is a plastic handle on top of a metal pole attache by glue. It breaks where the trigger housing begins as that is where the bend in the handle is. I haven't found a simple way to reinforce this an prevent the break.

        Hate it

        By Jan17

        from Mason, OH, USA

        Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

        I am trying to use the second Wet Jet I have purchased. The first one would only squirt from one side. Now, I have a new one and after two uses, it doesn't squirt at all. Batteries are ok, tried to put a pin in the openings in case they were clogged. Nothing but a few drops come out, and then the pad edges catch that, so nothing on floor. Think I will just throw it out and go back to my old mop.

        Like so many others, broken handle

        By Chakin

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

        The product needs redesign. Works well for cleaning floors; the handle breaks in the same place for so many clearly the handle needs to be stronger. We would recommend it once the handle was redesigned and stronger.

            Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

            This is my third Swiffer and all have sheared off in the same place. Having read other peoples reviews with the same problem my question is? Why has P & G not come up with a solution to the problem and modified the product to stop the handle breaking.

            Horrible Purchase

            By NikkiH

            from Honolulu, HI, USA

            Comments about Swiffer WetJet, Starter Kit, 1 kit:

            I bought a Swiffer wetjet in Nov 2014. I used it on my floor once and thought it was amazing. Little did I know, the next time I would use it, the place the liquid comes out of was messed up and no liquid would come out. I thought it was maybe something I did so I bought a new one later that month. I tried to use it, and the liquid nozzle part was messed up again. The liquid barely came out. I was highly upset and took it back to the store and they replaced it saying it was a manufacturer issue. They gave me a new one so I tried it again. I tried to use it. and BAM, the third one still didn't work. I will never buy another one. I was highly disappointed.
