The best part of Hoover REACT UH73220PC is that it delivers professional cleaning performance, large dust cup size, lightweight, long hose length and picking pet hair very well.

The downside of this model is that it does not have the Lift-up canister like other Hoover REACT units therefore if you have a lot of furniture at home, you might choose the similar version (Hoover React UH73550 PC) which have the lift-up canister to be able to clean under furniture easier.

Pros and cons of Hoover REACT UH73220PC


Powerful suction and cleaning performance on different surface types. This unit cleans very well from hard floors to carpets and high pile carpets. The unit picks up pet hair and the sealed air system plus HEPA filter is very great for users with allergy. Besides, this unit has high-quality accessories especially the pet turbo tool. It has a long cord (30 ft), big dust bin (1.5 liters) and a long hose (10.5 ft. which is the longest in Hoover REACT series)


This model is a bit heavy and users feel it is a bit harder to maneuver when compared with Dyson or Shark models (Shark APEX and Dyson cinnetic for example).

Recommendation of Hoover REACT UH73220PC

  • Recommendation for the home with pets and with many floor types. The Hoover REACT has sealed allergen system plus HEPA therefore it is very friendly to users with asthma.
  • Against for home with a lot of edges, corners and under furniture areas need to be cleaned frequently. Because Hoover REACT UH73220PC is a bit heavy and the swivel head is a bit stiff, you might find it is not as handy when you have to deal with small areas. One of the best alternatives will be the Hoover REACT QuickLift Deluxe model, or Shark Navigator NV356E.

Answer: Does very well.

Question: does anyone know where you can buy replacement fiter for this vacuum and do they sell filters with febreeze. BTW.. love this vacum!!!
Answer: They are rinsable but I looked and amazon has the primary round filter and I found both filters on Hoover.com. I am sure Walmart probably has them too but I am sure I will get them from amazon like everything else in my life. lol. I didn’t see any filters with febreeze for it ☹️

Question: Does this product come with a factory warranty?
Answer: This product comes with a 5 Year Limited Warranty.

Question: It says it picks up 99% of allergens but no hepa mention nor micron size of allergens. safe to assume its not hepa approved?
Answer: The Hoover REACT Professional Pet Plus has two exhaust filters made with HEPA and odor absorbing carbon. It also includes a Sealed Allergen System™ that captures 99% of dust and allergens** (down to .5 microns) and prevents them from being released back into your home.

Question: What is the “powered stair tool”? Is it an available accecory?
Answer: The Powered Stair Tool is a motorized handheld tool that helps you clean stairs and upholstery. It features a built-in edge and crevice channel to tackle stairs with one tool. It is available as an accessory on Hoover.com, however this tool is only compatible with the powered models (UH73510PC & UH73550PC). It requires a hose that has power running through it to the end of the handle to be connected so that the brush roll spins.

As soon as I connect the crevice tool, it says there is a clog. This is brand new out of the box. Has anyone else had this problem?
Answer: Yes. It also does it just vacuuming the floor. Very annoying. We are thinking about returning it.

Question: How well does it pick up cat litter on hard floors? My current vacuum just spits it back out.
Answer: Not sure about cat litter but I’ve been pleased with this vacuum done a great job on carpet and on hard floors and up steps with carpet attachments

Question: does it work with 220v input voltage ?
Answer: Unfortunately no, the Hoover REACT Professional Pet does not work with 220V input voltage as they were designed to work with 110V-120V input.

Question: How do you attach the tools to the hose? They don’t seem to fit.
Answer:  To use the tools included with the Hoover® REACT™ Professional Pet Plus you can attach them to either the end of the wand for above floor cleaning or to the end of the handle. To attach the tools to the end of the wand press the “Wand Release” button on the back on the vacuum behind the hose.

Question: What attachments come with the hoover react professional pet plus model # uh73220pc vacuum?
Answer: One of each: crevice tool; dusting brush; Pet upholstery tool and a Pet Turbo Tool.

Question: What does vacuum weigh ?
Answer: Weight is subjective, I think it’s fine but my girlfriend thinks it’s a bit heavy. It maneuvers well and I think the extra weight helps it stay put on the carpet.

Question: Is this vacuum dual voltage? 110-220
Answer: The Hoover REACT Professional Pet Plus does not have dual voltage.

Question: How well does this push on higher and thicker carpet? I am replacing my Dyson because it won’t push through our new carpet.
Answer: The Hoover REACT Professional Pet Plus is equipped with a suction control valve that allows you to reduce the suction, making it easier to push on carpets. The Hoover App allows you to adjust the FloorSense® settings for your particular floor type, including higher and thicker carpets
