Ok so here's something that I tee'd up for all the OzBargainer's that are currently doing their business as nature calls in style, and have been doing so for the last 6 - 12 months. However, it seems that everyone is oblivious to the fact that the supplied water filter should be changed at about the 6 month mark (I'd be pushing it to 12 months like a true OzBargainer).
For all those that frequent the forums, you may have seen a thread I created in recent days, Xiaomi Mijia Smart Toilet Seat Waterproof Electric Bidet - Where to Buy The Filters?.
I was tossing up on whether to pull the trigger on the Xiaomi Mijia Smart Toilet Seat Waterproof Electric Bidet (AU Plug) $249.95 Delivered @ Shopro (Melbourne Stock) because I had difficulty in getting some answers on how to replace the water filter. Although I bit the bullet as I too want to have the luxury to do what everyone needs to do, in style. Buy now, think later type of thing.
I was fixated in getting my hands on spare water filters, and couldn't find any locally or anywhere online as a matter of fact! I did score an extra one from Shopro for $24.00 AUD ($29.95 AUD shipped), but that was pretty much a once off as they only had a handful.
So I managed to scout out a Rep of DD4 to see if they could get their hands on them. Fortunately yes, and they were more than happy to tee up a special for me to share with my fellow OzBargainers!
They've just added this item onto their website today. Free shipping included.
The normal price is $29.66 USD / ~ $41.67 AUD, to which they gave a special discount of 26% off - $21.95 USD / ~ $30.84 AUD until 30/09/2018.
I tried to stretch them some more and they obliged. They gave another 9% off coupon (TLFLERD4) to be entered at checkout which then brings it down to $19.97 USD / ~ $28.05 AUD.
Make sure you pay using one of your many foreign exchange fee free cards to obviously not cop the fee!
Here's the description of the water filter from their site:
this product is a water filter which can effectively filter out sediment and other impurities from going into the toilet. It is designed with high-quality PP cotton filter and from reports.
The Xiaomi Smartmi smart toilet seat is equipped with a filter but this filter has a six-month lifespan. Extended use will affect the filter’s performance resulting in reduced water flow, low filtered water quality, and other issues. Users of this toilet seat can now purchase the Smartmi Smart Toilet Water Filter which can be fixed with a simple installation procedure.
This filter is quite useful because if the running water is directly connected to the smart toilet seat, it will not only cause danger to the health of the user, it will also cause impurities to be deposited in the body of the toilet and subsequently block the waterway.
All parts of the product adopt safety and environmental protection materials, and the product has passed RoHS certification. Zhimi smart toilet filter can withstand water pressure up to 0.75MPa.
Hopefully this will help out others that are keen to replace their water filters too. I reckon if you spent >$249.95 on one of these bidets, then you should look after it and replace the filter as it should be.
