Harbor Freight https://www.harborfreight.com/1500-watt-steam-cleaner-kit-63042.html. It's only $80 with a 20% coupon. I've had it for 8 months. It's working well. The outer hose cover has broken at the canister. It took 5 years for my McCulloch to do that. It's only there for insulation, so it doesn't really matter. I'd still be using my McCulloch if I could find a thermostat for it.

In last 15 years I used "Wagner Steamer" with great success, it normally last three or four years, I use tap water and no maintenance either. Cheapest place to buy it is Amazon.com link below:
