This appliance has been designed to work
with normal tap water.
However, since water contains limescale by
nature, which may cause scaling in the long
run, we recommend using a mixture of 50%
tap water and 50% demineralised water or
treated with water softener systems. To use
tap water only and avoid scale formation, we
recommend the addition of the special natural
scale removal agent Kalstop FP2003.
Absolutely do not use distilled water, dryer
condensate water, perfumed water, rain
water, battery water, water from air conditioning systems and the like. Do not use
chemical substances or detergents.
• Screw the cap (A) back in, making sure that it
correctly tightened as far as it will go. If not,
steam could escape from the opening. In this
case turn off the appliance, unplug it from the
mains and wait for it to cool before screwing
the cap back on.
• Open the door of the one-piece socket (E);
insert the moulded plug (3) until a click is
heard (Fig.3). Make sure that it is firmly connected before proceeding any further. To
release the sheath, simply press the release
keys (E1) and at the same time remove the
moulded plug (3).
• Plug the power cable (F) into a suitable
earthed outlet.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
• Press the ON/OFF switch (B). The power indicator light will come on (C).
• Wait for the pressure indicator lamp (D) to light up (about 10 minutes). Vaporetto is now
ready for use.
• The steam sprayer (2) has a safety button
(2A) that prevents accidental activation of the
steam delivery system by a child or other persons unaware of how the device works. To
prevent the accidental output of steam press
the button (2A). To resume delivery press the
button (2A) in the opposite direction and operate the steam control lever (4).
The first jet of steam may contain some water
droplets, due to imperfect thermic stabilisation
inside the flexible hose. We would therefore
advise that the first jet of steam is played onto
an old cloth until a constant steam flow is
obtained.
CONNECTION OF ACCESSORIES
• To connect the extension tubes (7) to the grip,
the large brush (8) and the lance joint (13),
simply join them to one another until the
accessory locking button (11) clicks into place
(Fig. 6).
• To release the accessories simply hold the
button (11) down and separate the components (Fig. 6).
• Before using the accessories, make sure that
they are firmly in place.
SAFETY CAP / LACK OF WATER
This appliance is equipped with a safety cap
which prevents the boiler being opened even
accidentally, until minimum pressure is reached
inside. This is indicated by a safety peg located
on the cap which, when it comes out of the cap
(Fig. A), indicates that there is still pressure inside the appliance. When it goes back completely
into the cap (Fig. B), it indicates that there is no
longer pressure in the appliance.
Note: The steam pressure indicator (D) may
go on and off from time to time during use of
Vaporetto, this is quite normal
Fig. A
VERY IMPORTANT WARNING: If you press the
steam request lever (4) when the appliance is
still under pressure, even if it is off and not connected to the wiring system, you may still experience steam escaping from the flexible hose. So
when you switch off the appliance, before storing
it, it is neccessary to press the lever (4) till the
steam flow is exhausted.
Fig. B
ATTENTION - Risk of burns:
Never force the cap open and never operate
on the safety peg if the appliance is still on
and connected to the mains or if it is still hot
Every time you want to open the safety cap, proceed as follows:
• Switch off the machine at the on/off switch (B).
• Disconnect the power supply cable (F)
from the mains.
• Operate the steam control lever (4) on the
steam sprayer (2) until steam stops flowing
completely.
• Wait at least 15 minutes to allow the boiler to cool.
• Check that the peg has lowered.
• Unscrew anti-clockwise the patented safety
cap (A).
• Refill it by following the description of the
PREPARATION paragraph.
STEAM REGULATION FEATURE
VAPORETTOs are equipped with a steam regulator control (M) (Fig.5). You can increase the
steam flow by turning the control in an anticlockwise direction. Turning it in a clockwise direction reduces the steam flow. Here are some
suggestions for the choice of steam flow level:
• Strong steam: for encrusted dirt, stains, sanitising, grease.
• Normal steam: for carpets, rugs, glass, tiles
etc.
• Delicate steam: for vaporising plants and
cleaning delicate fabrics, upholstery, wallpaper etc.
WARNING: Not complying with this procedure can expose you to the risk of burns.

• cleaning window shutters, heaters, car interiors;
• spraying plants (from a distance);
• removing odours and creases from clothes.
To reach higher points, the steam gun can be

PRECAUTIONS FOR DELICATE
SURFACES
Before treating leather, special fabrics and
wood surfaces, consult the manufacturer’s instructions and always carry out a test on a
hidden part or on a sample of the material. Allow the steamed part to dry to make sure that
no changes in colour or deformations have
occurred.
Please pay careful attention when cleaning
wooden and treated terracotta flooring as prolonged use of steam may damage the wax,
polish or colour of the surfaces to be cleaned.
We therefore recommend adjustment the
steam to minimum (if your appliance has
steam adjustment) and never direct the jet of
steam directly on the surface, but cover the
brush with a cloth. Do not keep spraying
steam in the same place.
For wooden surfaces (furniture, doors, etc.),
we recommend cleaning with a cloth which
has been steamed previously.
Also on particularly delicate surfaces (e.g.
synthetic materials, lacquered surfaces etc.) it
is recommended to always cover the brushes
with a cloth and to use steam to a minimum.
If cleaning glass surfaces in particularly low
temperatures preheat the glass using the
hand gun from about 50 centimetres distance
from the surface to be cleaned.
For care of your plants vaporise at a minimum
distance of 50 centimetres.
FLOOR BRUSH (8)
• To clean floors, attach a dry, clean cloth to the
brush and pass it moving from top to bottom
without pressing. When one side is dirty, turn
the cloth.
• Use the brush without cloth over dirty or scaled areas and over tile joints making lateral
movements to lift the dirt.
• For vertical washable surfaces or upholstery
and ceilings, cover the brush with a dry cloth
and proceed as for the floor.
• On all types of synthetic or wool floor/wall carpets, as well as area rugs, Vaporetto ensures
maximum hygiene, giving them back their original appearance and brightening up the colours.
Run the brush without cloth over the surface to
make dirt rise to the surface, cover the brush
with a cotton cloth locking it in the relevant lever
hooks (8A), then wipe the surface again to collect the dirt. Proceed rapidly and without pressing over the carpet, running the brush forward,
backward and sideways without pausing too
long at the same point. Treatment can be repeated as often as you like, with no danger for the
surfaces. The drying is almost immediate. If the
carpet is very dirty or saturated with cleaning
products, do not to insist too much. Results will
be evident only after a few uses of Vaporetto.
• To clean stubborn stains, before cleaning as
indicated above, direct the steam directly onto
the stain with the greatest possible angle
(never vertically to the surface to be treated)
and position a cloth beyond the stain, in order
to collect up the dirt that has been “blown”
away by the steam pressure.
PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR THE
USE OF THE ACCESSORIES
STEAM GUN (2)
The handgun can be used directly, without connecting the brushes, on all spots requiring a
stronger, closer treatment.
The more resistant the stain, the closer you
should hold the gun, the steam pressure and
temperature being higher at the source. You
should however always wipe with a dry cloth (or
a slightly abrasive sponge-if the spot is a difficult
one to remove) after using the gun.
The steam gun is particularly efficient at:
• breaking down rug and carpet stains before
they are treated with the large brush;

SMALL BRUSH (12)
To connect the small brush to the sheath or
to the extension tubes, first attach the lance
(5) to the small brush (12) so that the two
arrows found on the two components line up
(Fig.7).
After this, insert the lance joint (13), turning
it until it is hooked into place with the accessory (Fig. 8).
The small brush is used whenever the big brush
is too big or impractical to be used.
The small brush can be used for:
• furnishing fabrics (after testing on invisible
parts-see WARNINGS above at start of “TIPS
FOR BETTER UNIT PERFORMANCE”. DO
NOT USE ON DRALON, VELVET OR OTHER
SIMILAR PILE OR DELICATE SURFACES.
• small window surfaces
• tiles and other small surfaces
To clean wood (doorposts, floors etc) do not
point the steam directly but cover the big or
small brush with a double-folded cotton cloth.
For furniture cleaning direct the steam jet onto a
dry cotton cloth, and then clean with the cloth.
The warm moisture on the cloth traps the dust,
spots and the static electricity so that the furniture stays clean longer as there is no detergent
film for new dust to stick to..
The following two accessories can be applied to
the small brush:
12A – Cloth for small brush: Fit the cloth over
the small brush and clean the surfaces to be
treated.
12B – Window-cleaning tool for small brush:
Apply the tool to the small brush (without the
cloth (12A)) as shown in Figure 9. Window-cleaning is carried out in two stages:
• Deliver of steam onto the surface to be cleaned, by operating the steam delivery lever (4),
to dissolve the dirt;
• Pass the window-cleaning tool over the surface to remove the dirt, without delivering any
more steam.
ning radiators, door and window jambs, sanitary
fixtures and shutters. It is an extremely useful
and indispensable accessory. The following
accessories can be fitted to the lance:
6A – Curved tip for lance: suitable for reaching
even more inaccessible points, thanks to its curved shape.
6B - Small round brush and 6C - Large round
brush - 6D) Brush with brass bristles: suitable
for removing caked dirt from very narrow surfaces such as cooker burners, roller shutters,
joints between tiles, sanitary fixtures, etc.
Select the most appropriate brush, based on the
size and material of the surface to be treated.
To connect accessories 6A-6B-6C or 6D to the
lance (5), simply fit these accessories onto the
tip of the lance exerting a slight pressure
(Fig.10).
STORING THE DEVICE
The device can be put away with the brush,
tubes and sheath housed in holsters (I) and (L)
as shown in fig. 11 and 12.The smaller accessories can be stored inside the accessories compartment (H).
WARNING: Some HOT water may leak out of
the accessories mixed with the steam, especially when the tank has just been filled, while
carrying out the cleaning operations and as a
consequence of movement of the device.
KALSTOP
Water by its nature contains magnesium, mineral salts and other deposits which in hard water
areas can contribute to limescale build up in the
tank. In very hard water areas we recommend
the use of our Kalstop FP2003, a special natural-base decalcifier which inhibits and breaks
down limescale. This is a preventive against
scale build-up and protects the metal walls of
the boiler. Kalstop FP2003 can be found in small
appliance stores, Polti service centres and on
the web site www.polti.com
LANCE (5)
To connect the lance (5) to the sheath or extension tubes, first attach it to the lance joint (13).
The lance can be used to direct the flow of
steam towards hidden corners that are difficult to
reach with the steam sprayer. It is ideal for clea-
