This pocket-friendly machine is built for the middle level families in Nigeria. The capacity is strictly for small to medium families with very moderate periodic laundry. It is not built for mega commercial purposes or for use in large hotels and laundry outfits with large volumes of laundry, except functioning primarily in a supportive role.
Considering the poor water supply situation in Nigeria, this machine is built to minimize use of water. It allows you to regulate the amount of water used for every set of laundry as water can be manually poured into the drum (just the quantity you need) and drained by turning the “drain selector” knob at the top that allows water to flow out through a hose connected to the back of the machine and can be directed into the bathroom or drain.
An added advantage is its energy saving feature. Consumes minimal power and will hardly jack up your electricity bills. It also has a spinner compartment that functions as a drier, with time selector that ranges between 1-5 minutes. It actually removes moist from the clothes and can completely dry up clothes that are light in texture. However, whatever the texture of the cloth you are washing, the dryer compartment can help reduce moist up to 70%-80%. So you don’t have to leave your clothes out for too long to dry.
This machine’s downside is its incomplete automation. About 40% of activities have to be manually done- Filling the drum with water, draining the soapy water, re-filling the drum with fresh water for rinsing, transferring the clothes to the dryer section, draining the water – all have to be done manually. So it requires constant supervision. But the machine, through its Wash Timer, allows you to time the duration for washing, between the ranges of 3 – 15 minutes. So you can actually attend to other chores while laundering.
