Hepa filter is beneficial for asthma and allergy sufferers, because the HEPA filter traps the fine particles (such as pollen/dust mites etc.,.) which trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.


Easy to remove portable soiled water collection tank makes after job clean-up a breeze. Tank also acts as a water filtration system when machine is in vacuum only mode. Dirt just floats on the surface of the water. No dusty tank or filter to clean or replace.


The combination of heat, pressurized steam and powerful suction, make the TANDEM an exceptional carpet cleaning machine. The force and heat of the steam penetrates deep into carpet fibres. Dirt lifts to the surface and is instantly removed with the power of the vacuum.


Making the best steam cleaner includes using superior quality accessories. TANDEM accessories are designed with a multitude of steam cleaning and vacuum related jobs in mind. Everything you need to get started is included.


Steam cleaning is much easier when you have lots of steam pressure. The EV1 will give you consistent volumes of high-pressure steam.

With CSS you will never run out of steam in the middle of cleaning again. Simply refill the water tank when the water level is low and away you go.


Aided by the stainless steel AISI 304 steam tank is covered by a 5 year limited warranty as is the ABS outer shell.

Vacuum and steam controls located conveniently on the handle. Vacuum and steam power at your fingertips.

Reliable Enviromate Tandem EV1 – An Excellent Two-in-One Package from Reliable

The Reliable Enviromate Tandem EV1 is a two-in-one product that gives you both a steam cleaner and a vacuum cleaner working in tandem to keep your home impeccably clean. As a result of these two products working together as one, the Tandem can clean multiple surfaces, from hard floors to carpets. Generally, it works as a vacuum cleaner first, then extracts steam residue when necessary. Thanks to the combined functionality, the Tandem EV1 can take on even the toughest cleaning tasks.

So while the steam cleaner is deodorizing and sanitizing, the vacuum cleaner is making sure every piece of dirt and dust is getting suctioned up. There’s no other product that can provide such a complete clean as the Tandem EV1 from Reliable’s Enviromate line, and the best part is that it can do so using only water and heat. Since it does not use any chemicals, the Tandem is great not only for those who are allergic to dust but also for those who have chemical sensitivities.

If you don’t feel at ease using a vacuum cleaner alone or a steam cleaner alone, then combining the effects of HEPA filtration with the steam cleaning action of Reliable’s Enviromate line will certainly do the trick.

As a Reliable unit, the EV1 comes with the brand’s well-known CSS or Continuous Steam System technology. This allows you to continue cleaning for a long time and to refill the water tank without stopping or pausing your ongoing tasks.

Aside from Reliable’s well-known steam cleaner technologies, the Tandem also uses the highest level of vacuum filtration around in the form of a 70 micrometer HEPA filter. Proven to help get rid of up to 99.97% of dirt, dust, pollen, dust mites, and other debris, a HEPA filtration system can filter out even the smallest dust particles. It is then supported by an Activated Carbon filter and a washable foam filter. This combination provides as thorough a cleaning system as possible.

Thankfully, the cleaning action of the Enviromate Tandem EV1 can work its magic not only inside your home but in the work place, in your car, in your RV, or even a boat or yacht, if you are the lucky owner of one. This is a surer and yet healthier and more eco-friendly way of keeping your surroundings clean.

To make it even worth your while, Reliable packs in its usual specs, such as the high 1.8L water capacity, an 18/10 stainless steel tank, and 2 heating elements of 1700 watts of power capacity each. With dual heating elements, the Tandem EV1 heats up in just 5 minutes, which means you can get started with your cleaning tasks almost immediately. The heater can achieve a maximum temperature of 320 degrees F to make sure all bacteria are killed off.

Now on to the accessories. The Tandem EV1’s main hose is a detachable 7.2 feet steam hose that offers flexibility while cleaning. It has a distance of 0.8 inches with a steam tip temperature of 245 degrees F. Aside from the main hose, you will get a 24-piece accessory kit when you buy the unit. The kit makes sure you have everything you need to do a multitude of cleaning tasks around your home or office. The accessories include:

  • Flexible hose with handle
  • 2 extension wands
  • Universal brush
  • Carpet brush
  • Upholstery brush
  • Crevice nozzle
  • Crevice tool
  • Small nylon brush
  • Small metal brush
  • 2 window squeegees in small and large
  • Rubber scraper
  • Frame with bristles
  • Small window squeegree frame
  • Dusting brush
  • Steam nozzle
  • Radiator brush
  • Air intake filter
  • Drain plug key
  • Water funnel

All these come with a two-in-one compact package complete with large easy swivel wheels and a carrying handle to keep you at ease while operating the appliance.

Although a bit expensive, the Tandem EV1 offers excellent value considering how it combines two powerful cleaning products in one.
