Yes this is the same one. You can order from Walmart online, or many other stores carry it online too. Walmart has started carrying the product in store also. It is the cheapest price for the duo I could find, and the cleaners seem to be the same price no matter where you buy them.

Is it worth the money?

I just bought the SpotBot from Bissell and it doesn't work that well and before I spend another two hundred plus dollars I was wondering if the Shark Sonic Duo was worth the money.

I think it is worth it if you don't have super dirty carpet. Maybe for maintenance in between shampooing. I was most impressed with the hard floor cleaning, but will definitely continue to use with my carpet also.

The reason I bought it was because it can be used on carpet and floors. I love the convenience of that. Also, the machine is so light it is very easy to use, nothing like those heavy unmanageable dedicated carpet cleaners. But, saying that, it probably doesn't have the cleaning power of those big units for carpet.

I think that it could be cheaper but it's a brand new product. If you don't plan to use the carpet-cleaning feature, you can save about $50 by just purchasing the hard floor unit. I can't see using the carpet-cleaner for large areas. Probably worth the money if you can afford it because, thus far, it's a one-of-a-kind product.

The walmart in stockton, ca has pads and the cleaning solutions. i bout the carpet solution and it's prespray in one package it was 25.76, I didn't look at any other prices as they gave plenty in the initial order. If you order, just go get the extra.. I was excited to clean all my throw rugs, and runners as I don't have any carpet in my house, but it only did the rug under my dining table and barely made that.

You spray the solution by pressing a button on the handle ( like the spray button on an iron), then you run the machine over that area. It leaves it clean and damp and the just air dries.

You use the cleaner that sprays from the machine, the floor is damp not wet. I tried it on my tile floor and found it didn't clean into the grout lines. I would recommend cleaning those the old fashioned way with a scrub brush then using the Sonic duo over the overall floor.

It goes on the pad, and then you throw it in the wash. When the solution loosens the dirt deep down in the carpet, you are supposed to vaccuum over it when it dries to get rid of that.

Onto the cleaning pad. Then you just throw in the washing machine and ready for next time.

It sticks to the pad you attach to the bottom. The pads are washable.

answer 4
If you're using the Sonic Duo to clean a hard floor the soil winds up on the washable pad. For carpeting, some of the soil will be on the pad but you'll also need to vacuum thoroughly after the carpet is dry to remove the dirt that the Sonic Duo loosens but doesn't remove.

answer 1
I have pretty long carpet and it works great. I think its easier to get in between the fibers and get deep down. Berber carpet is like a harder, looped fiber.. definitely hard to scrub through so i think that is why there have been problems with that type of carpet.

Melissa040412
answer 2
I have a very thick, long fibered carpet. I have had a lot of trouble with other cleaners not being able to suck the water back out of the carpet duo to its thickness. I had no problem with the sonic duo. I was very pleased, and it dried very fast.

I don't believe it will get down to the bottom of a shag carpet, but it certainly is worth the in-between heavy-duty cleaning and should even prolong the time beteen heavy-duty cleanings.

I have very thick, plush carpet and it worked pretty good. I doubt if you have deep stains it would work on them though. Seems like more of a surface carpet cleaner to me. Does brighten them and fluff them up good too.

There is nothing in the instructions about cleaning upholstery and just because of the size of the machine and how it works, I would think its pretty much impossible to use for upholstery.

I would like to know more about the "Shark Sonic Duo Professional Mop" (model number KD450WM), but can't seem to find anything about it on the official Shark website. In fact, I can't seem to find anything about this machine on ANY website (searched by name and by model number)... Can you help?

if you call the shark line, you get it for 199.99 plus 30 for shipping, not like the website says. plus they charge tax anyways, so its like the same thing. BUT in walmart the hard and rug cleaner comes with hard floor solution. ordering through the site does NOT. I just ordered it via the infomercial which is the same as trysharkduo dot com (says 50 for shipping but they charge 30 on phone) and i am going to call and cancel now. Its on backorder for 1, 2 it doesnt some with hard floor cleaning solution.

the 400 is just for hard floors, it doesnt come with what you need to do rugs like the 450 does, i assume the pads can be bought separately, but i am not sure.

my local walmart has it in stock, i was just playing with it in the store. They also have the solutions for 17$-something dollars, and the carpet was 25 and it came with the spray bottle for the hard spots as well as a bottle of the cleaning solution, and i think the pads too.

The KD400WM model has pads and solution for floors only. The KD450WM model has pads and solution for both floors and carpets/rugs. The pads and solutions for this particular item do not yet appear on their website as of this date. So buying separately is not yet an option! Can't even price the items yet to see how expensive the pads are.

www.SharkClean.com/SonicDuo

You can also access info on it through the Shark website by clicking on the orange oval in the upper right corner that says "SonicDuo Details & Support". You will find info on the machine there as well as links to order additional cleaning pads and cleaning solutions.

This info applies to the Sonic Duo model shown on this page, which I am presuming is what you were interested in based on the model number. I haven't come across anything labeled as a "Professional" model though.

I hope this has helped :)

P.S. I was looking at the Shark website because I wanted to buy one of these but after seeing their shipping charge ($50!) I am now going to be buying it from Walmart.
