Added a piece of pre-filter before the HEPA. No apparent affect upon suction, protects the HEPA from hair and large particles and is much easier to clean.

I had some replacement filters from China which had a thin metal net/mesh on one side, guessing that should stop the hair and larger debris from entering the filter.
What did you use to make this?

I’m having thoughts of using carbon cat litterbox filter for the same purpose. They’re thin yet effective.

The "carbon" in these is activated charcoal granules, for absorbing odors.

There are odors in the litterbox. Are there odors in your carpet?

Is it possible to mod a 5xx AeroVac/6xx bot with the AeroForce gen2 vacuum motor and impeller?

I don't feel it necessary for a 5xx or 6xx, as the cheap standard filters do the same thing.
I came up with this to pre-filter the HEPA filters on our 805 and 980.
I now just use the pre-filter with an empty HEPA filter frame, as I feel HEPA filters on a vacuum clear have little effectiveness.
