How to take a good design and ruin it.

I have used Sabco 4 post mops for years quite happily. But then when I bought the latest one noticed that they had changed the sponge mounting. Instead of the 4 small holes that you fed the threaded posts through and then did up the long tunnel nuts, now they have large diameter holes with "fingers" in them.
This is apparently the dumbed down version that has been foisted on us consumers. It has been expertly designed so that after about 5 uses the tunnel nuts are pulled through the fingers as the sponge dries and contracts. This bends the fingers and like all plastic that is bent, it does not recover.
From then on every time you squeeze the sponge, one or 2 of the tunnel connector pop out leaving half the sponge rung out and the other half dripping wet.
The ultimate product - one that self destructs!
See photos.
Time to buy a competitors product.

Purchased in September 2018 at Woolworths.


dont buy it

I agree with all the comments, sponges last two weeks at most - leaves bits of sponge all over the floors, probably the worst mop I have purchased, expensive to buy will be ditching it!

Hi Jewel - Sorry to hear you are unhappy with your Sabco Lightning Mop. Sabco Lightning Mop Refill is made from highest quality 100% cellulose, which is the premium material for sponge mops as it picks up more dirt & water, leaves fewer streaks. But it seems that unfortunately you picked up an old stock. Sponge mop refills are moist when packaged at the factory, but can dry out if the stock is old or has a rip in the packaging. Unfortunately, once this happens, the sponge will disintegrate. If you would like to discuss your concerns about your Sabco Mop, please email customerservice@sabco.com.au and we will be in touch. Thanks - Sabco

Terrible

Sponges break up really quickly. Plastic edges scrape the floor. I like the replaceable strip at the front. I've had Sabco mops before and they have been fine, but this one is awful.

Used to have a really good model (SAB31019), but this one is junk.

Used to have a Lightning Quick Dry (SAB31019) but for some crazy reason they stopped making the refills for them. My friend has just used the last refill she had and still thinks it's the best mop ever.(31019). Sorry but the 30022 is hopeless (junk). The sponge just falls apart and then falls off. Why make something good and then discontinue it? Looks like it's back to Oates or Vileda.

Hi Mark, Thank you for your feedback and we apologise for the experience. Generally, Sabco Lightning Mop Refill is made from highest quality 100% cellulose, which is the premium material for sponge mops as it picks up more dirt & water, leaves fewer streaks. But when cellulose dries out it contracts. If dried out too quickly (e.g. by leaving the mop outside exposed to wind, sunlight etc.) it may contract too quickly and cause damage to the cellulose.Unfortunately, once this happens, the sponge will disintegrate. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the concerns you have raised about your Lightening Mop. If you wish to discuss this further please feel free to contact me at promotions@sabco.com.au Thank you Sabco Facebook.com/Sabco.Australia

Very annoying, not happy!

Sponge pulls out off the mounting holes when sponge dries and curlers up. I am sure I am not the only person with this problem.
