Can I fill scooba after cleaning before next cycle.

Is it ok, after scooba is done cleaning. To clean it out, filters etc, then put in new cleaning fluid and water, and set it to charge. So the next day, I can just hit start?

So I guess the question is, is leaving the clean tank, full of water and cleaning solution, ok for long periods of time?

Thanks!

The Scooba cleans by using liquid that is gravity fed from the clean tank. There is no on/off valve, the liquid is always present if the tank is in place. The seal is nothing more than neoprene and plastic. You may not have an issue on a new Scooba but there is no way to determine when the seal may be compromised so it is safer to fill the tank when you are ready to run a cleaning session.
