Pads for Orek Orbiter
#1
If anyone uses the Orek Orbiter for stair cleaning, what is your process and what type of pads do you use.  I have a stepson, but I have been trying to speed things up a bit by also using the Orek Orbiter.  The problem I am having, besides keeping the velcro attachment on when switching stairs, is finding a pad that works.  When I pull the pads off it seems to destroy them.  I have tried the super zorb pads, gladiator pads, and a smaller micro-fiber blue pad from Direct Mop Sales.  They all get destroyed when taking them off.

this has been talked about a couple times in recent months on the various forums. i assume you are using the stock hook&loop head on the Orbiter??

if so, you need to run it on concrete until all the nubs are worn down to nothing. then gorilla glue or marine goop a round piece of velcro onto it. make sense? or are you having another issue??
