Xiaomi Mi/Roborock Filter Hack/mod?

Postby 3kgt » February 10th, 2019, 8:49 am

Hi all.
Short version: I wanna experment and find a Non hepa filter wich allows more air flow and better suction. Like the "regular Neato filter".

Had the Neato line for a loong time using the normal filter (Non hepa) with a very good suction.
Now i have had the Xiaomi Mi 1 wich i loved and then uppgraded to the Mi2/Roborock.
It dose clean good and overall happy. However in the last 1-2 weeks i notice that it dose not clean as good as before on carpet. And i have began to test and search for the problem. I notice that the air suction is bad! My filter is about 1 month old. I Clean it all the time, but these damn filters are so air tight that once you get some dust in, its hard to get them Really clean and you lose alot of suction.
So i wanted to see if i can make some mod on the filter, i cut the original out almost all of it and left only enough to make it cover it.
I then had some "regular" air cover filter for the kitchen and other places, even use them on normal vacum cleaners. And tested that. Will uppload pictures from the phone soon.
I got a better air flow. But still wanna make it even better.
I googled if someone have come upp with a simular ide with no result.
So i wanna start an experment here and try to find a simular filter typ as the normal Neato filter instead of this thick hepa filter.
And i have even taken apart my first Roborock and found out that there is a secound filter on the back of the vacum. These robots are much more complicated than the Neato and Irobot wich i have taken apart many times.
I will show you some pictures and be free to give some thoughts and idees.
Ps (Excuse my bad speeling).
Love robot vacums :)
