I almost bought a new vacuum cleaner. Really.
August 27, 2019
We have a Dyson V8 Animal something-or-other. It's by far the best vacuum cleaner we've ever owned. We've had it for a couple years, but unfortunately the last few months, it's been less and less effective. We cleaned the filters as described on the Dyson website, and although they looked clean, our vacuum wouldn't pick up well, and it did that "pulse" thing they do when they're full even when it wasn't full. It really sucked. Or, I guess it *didn't* suck, and that was the problem.
Since a new vacuum is somewhere around $500, we decided to try a set of new filters, hoping to get a few more months out of it.
Wow. It works very well again. It has suction, doesn't "pulse", and picks up like it did when new. Basically, our vacuum sucks again. Thank goodness!
tl;dr -- Even though our old filters appeared clean, they weren't. These new filters made our vacuum like new.
