Now every true OzBargainer on here has obviously made their purchase on one of these things. I can kinda see why and what all the rage is about, hence I'm close to pulling the trigger on this deal (https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/401519).
However… I'm the extremely anal type when it comes to these types of electrical purchases, and become fixated in researching the products particularly when they require future maintenance and part replacements.
I've done a fair bit of reading on this site and I haven't found any discussion on replacing the filter (External PP Cotton Filter) these things come with. They only supply you with one filter when you purchase the product.
So to my point, it appears that the filters are recommended to be changed around the 6 month mark. This is the standard for most bidets I've seen no matter which brand. Understandably, us OzBargainers would stretch it out to double that, somewhat like Brita filters lol!
Here are some info on news about the filters…
The only problem is that I can't find the respective Xiaomi brand/or compatible filter to be purchased individually on a local level. I found what looks to be a part number (MTHHLQ01ZM) in a picture of the filter, but I ain't getting any results. It seems that the only place to purchase replacements is via the Xiaomi Youpin site (https://youpin.mi.com/)… I don't read Chinese =(
Anyhoo… For all the owners of these Xiaomi bidets, what have you done about replacing your filters? Or are you completely ignorant to the fact that these filters require replacing?
Help a fellow OzBargainer out to experience the luxury of a clean ass again (reminisces sitting on Toto bidets in Japan)! Ready to pull the trigger, as long as I can get my hands on replacement filters.
TL;DR - Owners of these Xiaomi bidets, what have you done about replacing your filters? Or are you completely ignorant to the fact that these filters require replacing? Please discuss…
