The new handle is quite stiff... So when I have to rinse the mop, I need to put in a lot of force to push it down... So by the time I rinse it, say 3 times, my arm starts to pain... The basic Gala spin mop bucket also has a design problem... The white agitator head/plate becomes weak with time... So rinsing becomes difficult as the mop head keeps slipping from the agitator plate... So, this problem plus the new handle being stiff - is making my Gala spin mop bucket experience a really bad one nowadays... I think newer models of Gala spin mop bucket- like the Gala Rhino or the Gala Aqua do not have the agitator plate...they just have the agitator rod at the base of the bucket...this should eliminate the problem of the mop head slipping off the agitator head.... Also, other brands like Prestige, Scotch Brite etc also do not have agitator plates, may be for the same reason...
I had taken Prestige mock with bucket earlier however the mop got useless after an year so I tried searching for the prestige mop separately but I guess they don't sell separate mop... So decided to go for Gala spin mop handle and it perfect fit and a good one.. Light in weight and seems durable.. Its been a month now.. Working fine..
I have previously bought two sets of Gala spin mop. After quite useful for about a year or so the spinning mop's spring broke down, hence ordered new one. However the quality of the delivered product appears to be inferior if compared with the one bought with the previous set i.e. its not sturdy and light weight as compared to the original one. also, when it is pushed for squeeze it's spring doesn't function properly. The plug from the drain tank also is broken and leaks, but couldn't buy one as not available for the purchase. Now I need to purchase yet another handle mop for second set but not sure of quality of the product. As could be seen this product is in the basket since long time but I haven't taken decision. Please advice. Sham Chavan
The fact that it is sturdy yet light weighted makes it a perfect tool for moping. However make sure to have the same mop rotational head if you are just looking to purchase the rod as the rod does not fit in other mop heads due to its slimness,I had purchased this same rod an year ago but had it unused due to fitting issues in my older mop heads and since the older mop is completely broken I went ahead and bought this as it comes with the rotstional head as well so now I can use the earlier mop rod with this rotation head if this rod gets broken or damaged (my mom tends to break lots of mops by her mopping,this would be my 4th or 5th purchase in total including mops brought from market). Quality wise a decent product and I guess worth the price and lives up to the brand Name.
This a nice mop which we are using for quite a while. Really easy to use and this gives a tidy floor with less effort and non messy hands. Only problem I have is with the lock facility. At times we forget to lift the lock and press it too hard and this results in damage of the bearing and we have to repurchase it again after a while. If you are a little cautious on this, I would really recommend this one.
A good quality product for cleaning floors.But after using some days the plastic threads of mop handle are not so good to keep it tighten with microfiber refill holders disc. So it causes much inconvenience to use it. Even most of the times the refill holder disc detached from the handle. So I expect suggestions to overcome the problem.
