In this day and age, finding the right wet/dry vac has become somewhat of a chore. How can you determine which model to get when there are so many options and each of them comes with extremely different features? For instance, what does the Bissell CrossWave X7 have that the Tineco Floor ONE S5 doesn’t? Let’s find out, shall we?

#1 Bissell CrossWave X7
30-Minute Runtime per Charge
Both the Bissell CrossWave X7 and the Floor ONE S5 are cordless models, meaning that they draw power from built-in batteries. The CrossWave X7’s battery pack allows it to run for up to 30 minutes at a time on its lower setting, which is pretty decent compared to what most cordless wet/dry stick vacs are capable of.
The Floor ONE S5 has the upper hand by running for 35 minutes per charge.
TURBO PET Mode
The Bissell brand is mostly known for its pet-friendliness, so you can bet that the CrossWave X7 was made to cater to pet parents everywhere. This is evident with the presence of TURBO PET Mode, which doubles the amount of suction power and roller speed to loosen and break down set-in stains in a matter of seconds. The tradeoff is that the battery pack becomes depleted at about twice the rate as its lower setting.
Something that might slip below your radar is the CrossWave X7’s new and improved floorhead design. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice that the floorhead’s bezels are almost razor-thin, allowing you to clean along baseboards and furniture legs without missing a beat. The 9.5-inch cleaning path will make mopping and vacuuming spacious rooms a breeze.
Cleans Smooth Floors and Carpets
One feature that we think you’ll love is how the CrossWave X7 is designed to vacuum and mop bare floors and carpets. While there’s no way to stifle the flow of clean water that moistens the microfiber brush roll, it actually uses a nearly negligible amount of cleaning solution, so it can refreshen carpets and area rugs without issue.
The Floor ONE S5, at least according to Tineco, shouldn’t be used on anything other than bare floors.
33-oz 2-Tank System
Like most wet/dry vacuums, including the Floor ONE S5, the CrossWave X7 completely separates clean water from dirty water. The two tanks have a collective capacity of 33 oz, which should be more than enough to clean over 200 square feet of tiles and carpeting per run. Just be careful not to get any hair on your fingers since the dirty water tank doesn’t come with a hair strainer.

#2 Tineco Floor ONE S5
iLoop Smart Sensor
One feature that’s unique to Tineco stick vacuum cleaners is iLoop Smart Sensor technology. iLoop is able to detect the presence of floor debris as tiny as 15 microns in size, so it’ll notice things that the naked eye would definitely miss.
When it does, it’ll send a message to the smart motor to adjust its suction pressure, roller speed, and water flow accordingly. A dirtier floor will force the Floor ONE S5 to work harder.
Here’s something that’ll probably leave you guys scratching your heads. The FLOOR ONE S5 can sync to your smartphone via the Tineco app. This app offers performance reports, maintenance reminders, and how much power is left in the battery pack. Is the smartphone app really necessary? Not according to many users, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have.
50-oz Collective Tank Capacity
The dual-tank system in the Floor ONE S5 is identical to that in the CrossWave X7 in terms of purpose. However, when looking at their capacities, the FLOOR ONE S5’s tanks are the clear winner.
This wet/dry stick vac can hold onto 50 oz of water—dirty and clean—at a time, so users can clean around twice as much surface area as the CrossWave X7 per refill.
Now, what you should know is that a larger tank means a heavier wet/dry vac. Just something to keep in mind if you don’t’ have the muscle power to lift vacuums up and down flights of stairs.
Self-Cleaning Roller Brush
What’s fascinating about both of these wet/dry vacuum cleaners is that you don’t have to lay a single finger on their respective brush rolls to clean. Instead, all you have to do is mount them in their respective charging bases and press and hold the self-clean button.
This button will automatically spin the brush rolls at their highest speed, dislodging all grime and debris residing on and in the microfiber brush roll. Doing this for 15 to 30 seconds after each cleaning cycle is essential for maintaining the roller’s softness and cleaning capabilities in the long run.
