Check with the Hoover Service Center on line. I found this web site, but did not see where you could get parts, although you could send them this question.

As with any hardwood floor, you would want to test an area, maybe with a toothbrush for scratches.
The Hoover Floormate does an excellant job picking up dirt, wet or dry and the machine manipulates very easy around furniture.

No. I have found that you have to keep working the scrubbers over an area that is hard to clean up. Like anything else ... you end up on your hands and knees. It is best to get to the mess before it dries and this unit should do a good job.

No and you would not want that on some type of floors ie wood. But it gets up almost everything due to the brush action :)

I believe you would want to make sure that the product placed in with the water for cleaning will not cause a build up going through your machine.
I would think that you could use it, but what I read on the cleaning of wood floors the ratio of cleaner to water may be different than the ratio to tile surfaces.

I wouldn't recommend anything that gets very sudsy. However, you may be able to dilute it enough to prevent that. (I'll try it myself...) I like Odo-Ban; it disinfects, is non-toxic, and pretty inexpensive for a heavy user like myself.

How well does this product clean uneven tiles?

It struggles on uneven surfaces, because it uses suction to pull the water solution back into the machine. So when I've used it on uneven natural stone tile, it leaves some small puddles of water. I just turn on a fan and it air dries pretty fast.

I would say about 2 cups, though I haven't measured it exactly. I have a smaller house (1100 square feet) and it takes about 5 fillings of the tank to clean the floors.
