About this deal

Small and Compact: The attachment is small and compact aka it won’t take up much space storage-wise. This makes it a good option for those who want an electric mop but live in a small space.

He went on to explain he’d seen other videos raving about the unofficial attachment, explaining it works by removing the vacuum’s regular brush head and replacing it with a mop you add water to. The Dyson Hard looks confusing. Like the company’s cordless vacuums, the Hard sees a battery-powered vacuum cleaner extended by a ridged, metre long suction tube. Now, however, a boxy mop head has been plonked on the other end, instead of a standard vacuum cleaner component. Another thing to keep in mind is that the Submarine attachment doesn’t hold a lot of clean water. You’ll be able to do a large living room only before you’ll need to refill the little bottle in the cleaning head. So if your multi-room home is all hard floors, you’ll need to fill it often and empty the dirty water just as often, which may not be ideal for everyone.

Build Quality

Regular mopping is the best way to prevent pollen, dust, and pet dander from accumulating on the floor. Not only will it be better for your health, but it’ll also keep your floor looking its best (i.e. there won’t be any debris that can cause tiny scratches). Resemblance to previous models aside, the standout here is the new mopping head. It took Dyson a long time to get here but it’s finally competing with the likes of the Samsung Bespoke Jet and the LG CordZero A9 Kompressor Aqua. With typical Dyson aesthetic, the new Submarine wet roller head has clean lines, a velvet roller, a small clean water ‘bottle’ (yes, it does resemble a water bottle) and, somewhere behind it all, a small compartment for the dirty mop water to collect.

The product doesn’t come with any instructions. Even the writing on the box is in Chinese. The good news is that setup is relatively straightforward so you’ll be able to figure it out even without an instruction manual. The mop pads get quite heavy when they’re wet. Depending on how often you use it, the excess torque may put extra strain on the motor, which may shorten the life of the Dyson vacuum. This is a great product and does the job well. The only little issue I have is the size of the water tank, could be bigger. While it’s possible to get a full 60 minutes of runtime from the V15s Detect Submarine, that will only work with the non-motorized tools like the Hair Screw Tool and the Combination Tool or achievable in Eco mode. You’ll also get almost the whole 60 minutes with the Submarine roller head as the suction is switched off with it attached, however you'll run out of clean water long before you'll need to recharge the machine.During my testing, I managed to get 62 minutes in Eco mode, but I wasn’t quite enthused by the clean I got in this mode. On the other hand, Boost is great for carpets but you can expect to run out of juice in about 8 minutes. I also scattered different-sized grain on the floor to test vacuuming, including sugar, rice, Cheerios and tapioca pearls. I then used the Digital Motorbar and the Fluffy Optic to vacuum to determine which one does best on such debris. Unlike both the Gen5detect and the V15 Detect, I find the V15s Detect Submarine a lot easier to move around, no matter which cleaning head I’m using. According to Dyson’s spec sheet, the Complete model weighs 3.8kg, compared to the V15 Detect at 3.1kg and the Gen5detect at 3.5kg. I think that’s a mistake as it feels lighter than the V15 Detect in the hand, and the Submarine roller just makes it super easy to drag along a floor. I’ve tried measuring the machine myself on a weighing scale, but because I have to hold it in place, the measurements aren’t accurate and come in at just under 3kg, which can’t be right either. The attachment can drain the battery due to the heaviness of the pads. Don’t expect to be able to clean an entire room—you will have to recharge it before that happens.

I’ve used the Dyson V15s Detect Submarine two to three times a week for four weeks as my main vacuum, while also running the Dyson V15 Detect to compare suction during vacuuming. I allowed hair and dust to accumulate on the carpet in one room before the first test run. We mentioned this earlier but the attachment is just an attachment; there’s no water tank like an actual electric mop. In other words, you have to manually wet the pads and floor yourself with a spray bottle. Some people might find this to be a hassle.Considering the V15s Detect Submarine is Dyson’s first vacuum mop, I think the company has done quite well. The appliance’s vacuuming skills are, as before, quite good. It’s the same vacuuming performance we saw from the V15 Detect, just quieter. So carpets are well taken care of, as are hard floors. The dynamic suction we’ve seen in the last few Dyson models is here, so most users will only need to leave the machine in Auto mode and it will do its thing and, as before, I still think the Digital Motorbar is the catch-all tool for any kind of floor. However, if it’s mostly fine dust in your home and you don’t have pets, then the Fluffy Optic that ships with the Complete model is good and no longer the novelty that I thought it was when I tested the V15 Detect. As a result of the oversaturation of the wet roller head, and the long drying time, after mopping my floors for the first time using the Submarine, there were visible streaks left behind on the floors. The floors were fairly clean prior to that first run — I had mopped with a traditional spin mop four days before testing the Submarine for the first time (I had company coming over, and also I was testing a different floor care product for work!), so it wasn’t an issue with my floors being overly dirty, which may have required a second pass with the Submarine. While we found some significant performance issues with the V15s Detect Submarine, overall this is a truly impressive piece of machinery that we recommend, with reservations, for most homes. Reusable Pads: The mop pads are reusable. In other words, you won’t have to keep buying refills, which will save you money in the long run.
