Why is Cobi 18 leaving water on the floor as it works to complete a route?

Problem: Cobi Is Not Recovering Water

If Cobi is leaving water behind on the floor and not properly collecting dirty water during cleaning, please review the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.

NOTE: we recommend doing all of these steps daily 

Step One: Check the Squeegee

  • Clear any loose debris from the squeegee blade and rinse under a hose
  • Clean any blockages from vacuum opening
  • Check the rear squeegee blade for a good edge end to end. Once this becomes too worn, the squeegee assembly will need to be replaced.

  • Remove debris basket by gently twisting off from underneath.
