1. WHAT IS A WATER SEPARATOR CLEANING SYSTEM? The water separator cleaning system is a unique and finest cleaning system available in the market. Its method of filtration is by using water due to the fact that water is non-porous and wet dust cannot fly. The water separator technology was discovered in 1920 by John W. Newcombe and the first product to use this method of filtration is Rainbow. Due to the effectiveness of water separator technology in eliminating dust particles, many companies begin to compete by researching and improving the technology. Even after a century of discovery, most brands that are using water separator technology require maintenance where its separator requires cleaning after every use.After spending millions in research and development, HYLA achieved a technology breakthrough in 2001 with the invention of 'self-cleaning' water separator that is worldwide patented that requires no maintenance setting a benchmark in the industry and propelled it to become the finest water separator cleaning system in the market. 2. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYLA AND OTHER WATER BASED VACUUM CLEANERS? Water based vacuum cleaners are commonly known as wet & dry vacuum cleaners. The method of filtration is known as a water bath filtration or bubbling system where a combination of water and conventional filters are used to filter the dust particles. As the dust particles get sucked into the system, a small amount of dust will be trapped in the water and most of it will escape and be released back to the environment. To ensure cleaner air, conventional filters(usually more than one) are normally used to filter the dust particles before the air is expelled back to the environment. So, in other words, these filters are subject to replacements as they will be clogged up due to repeated usage otherwise the performance of the vacuum will be affected and ultimately causing overheating.As for the HYLA, the method of filtration is using a patented ’water separator’ to separates the air from the water. The water separator rotates at a high speed of 25,000 rotational per min(almost twice the speed of a Formula 1 car) creating a centrifugal force in the HYLA system restricting only air to pass through the water separator leaving 100% dust particles to be trapped in the water. With a geyser tube that creates a constant upward stream of water called the ‘geyser effect’, optimised filtration is achieved as the air is thoroughly washed before it passes through the water separator ensuring only cleaned, water washed air is returned into the environment. Our HYLA patented ‘water separator’ is designed as self-cleaning so it’s maintenance-free! 3. HOW COME HYLA IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER WATER BASED VACUUM CLEANERS? Water based vacuum cleaners are commonly known as wet & dry vacuum cleaners. The method of filtration is known as water bath filtration or bubbling system where a combination of water and conventional filters are used to filter the dust particles therefore long term maintenance is usually required such as replacement of filters as opposed to HYLA which is maintenance-free because of the uniqueness of the patented ‘water separator’. Read more on Question No (2).Though it may sound expensive upfront, but in the long run you’ll actually end up saving thousands of Ringgit in maintenance costs of filters replacements and etc. HYLA is a precision-made high quality cleaning system that ensures you, a trouble-free usage of over many years to come.

IS THERE ANY OTHER SIMILAR BRAND THAT USES SELF-CLEANING WATER SEPARATOR? No. Our HYLA self-cleaning water separator is worldwide patented. Other similar brands claim to be self-cleaning but actually it requires cleaning maintenance after each use. We advise you to please refer to their respective brands' product manual to find out more information. 5. WHAT CAN HYLA DO? HYLA is an eco-friendly multi-purpose home cleaning system that uses 100% water to keep the indoor home environment clean and safe.It is commonly used for 1) Air purification 2) Sanitizing 3) Aromatizing 4) General wet & dry vacuuming 5) Removing dust mites effectively from mattresses, carpets, sofas for allergy sufferers 6) Unclogging of drains 7) Blowing & many more.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT VACUUMING WITH THE HYLA? The patented self-cleaning water separator invention of HYLA was a revolution in the vacuum industry. HYLA is the only cleaning system in the world that uses 100% water to trap the dust particles without any bag or filters. So, it’s maintenance-free and eco-friendly. 7. HOW IS HYLA MORE EFFECTIVE IN CLEANING MATTRESSES AS COMPARE TO OTHER VACUUM? The HYLA Electro Nozzle which is an attachment used with the HYLA to deep clean mattress is powered by a separate motor. Its rotational brush is powered driven by the motor to constantly beat and scrub to extract dust mites effectively. It is uninterruptible cleaning! No performance loss, no suction loss. In conventional vacuum, the brush is usually air driven by suction power from the motor unit itself and when the bag and filters get clogged up, the cleaning performance will be reduced tremendously. Dust mites extraction requires constant and strong beating like what we used to do beating the mattress under the sun but we no longer do due to the weight of mattress and space constraint. With the HYLA, you can now enjoy mattress cleaning more effectively and easily. 8. IS THE HYLA A GOOD INVESTMENT?

HYLA and Rainbow are both competing companies that use water separator technology in its cleaning system to separates the air from the water. Water separator technology was discovered by John W. Newcombe in 1920 and the first product to use this method of filtration is Rainbow. Due to the effectiveness of water separator technology in eliminating dust particles, many companies begin to compete by researching and improving the technology. HYLA is one of the companies that have spent millions in research and development to improve the technology and currently HYLA is the only company that uses water separator that is self-cleaning in its cleaning system which is worldwide patented. Though Rainbow adopted the technology in 1920, HYLA perfected it since 1990! 11. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYLA AND RAINBOW? Both systems are very similar in terms of applications, functions and usages. The most significant differences are;Firstly, HYLA uses only 100% water as its filter due to its unique patented water separator and geyser effect as opposed to Rainbow which requires an additional HEPA Neutralizer to filter the air(refer to Rainbow manual page 4 item no 7 https://rainbowsystem.com/uploads/manuals/R17418W-2_SRX_Owner_Manual_ENGLISH_SPANISH_CALIFORNIA.pdf).Secondly, HYLA patented water separator is ‘self-cleaning’ thus it’s maintenance-free as opposed to Rainbow where it requires cleaning and proper care and maintenance (refer to Rainbow manual page 7 item ‘clean the separator’ https://rainbowsystem.com/uploads/manuals/R17418W-2_SRX_Owner_Manual_ENGLISH_SPANISH_CALIFORNIA.pdfThere are some other minor differences but the above 2 items are the most important characteristics that users have to be aware of because it affects the performance of the cleaning system due to noticeably reduced airflow as highlighted in the Rainbow manual Troubleshooting Guide page 10(https://rainbowsystem.com/uploads/manuals/R17418W-2_SRX_Owner_Manual_ENGLISH_SPANISH_CALIFORNIA.pdf). 12. HOW COME I’VE HEARD OF RAINBOW BUT NOT HYLA? Basically, Rainbow has been around for over 80 years and they are the ones that first adopted the water separator technology since discovery by John W. Newcombe in 1920. Starting in 1948, the Rainbow has been marketed through direct selling and due to its early presence, they are more popular then whereas HYLA only started in 1990, so, many would have heard about the Rainbow than the HYLA due to the longer years they are in the market. 13. HOW COME HYLA HAS NO FILTER, SO HOW DOES IT TRAPPED DUST PARTICLES? HYLA Air & Room Cleaning System does not have any mechanical filter but uses 100% water as its filter to trap dust particles. This is possible due to its patented water separator that rotates at a high speed of 25,000 rotational per min(almost twice the speed of a Formula 1 car) creating a centrifugal force in the HYLA system restricting only air to pass through the water separator leaving 100% dust particles to be trapped in the water. With a geyser tube that creates a constant upward stream of water called the ‘geyser effect’, optimised filtration is achieved as the air is thoroughly washed before it passes through the water separator ensuring only cleaned, water-washed air is returned into the environment. 14.
