IRobot Mirra 530 Tips & Tricks

Tips from iRobot Resources:


Run Mirra only when in the water.
Mirra has a very strong motor system that needs to stay cool for optimal performance and life. Your pool water around the motor helps keep it cool during operation. Therefore Mirra should not be run outside of the pool due to the risk of overheating the motor.

Choose the correct filter canister.
Use the Large Debris Filter Canisters when the pool contains a significant amount of large debris (leaves, insects, etc.) and when the pool is opened for the season or cleaning during the Fall. The Fine Filter Canisters are ideal for filtering small debris such as algae, sand, silt and bacteria and for regular pool cleaning maintenance during the peak of your pool season.

Keep Mirra working at peak performance.
Mirra uses the powerful force of water pumped through its filter to clean and circulate pool water and to propel itself around your pool. It pumps and filters more than a gallon of water every second! Clean the filter canisters regularly by removing them from Mirra, emptying its contents and hosing it out. Keeping the filter canisters clean will ensure optimal cleaning results and strong pump suction.

Allow the motor to cool before removing the robot from the pool.
Mirra's power supply has an automatic timer that shuts Mirra off after each cleaning cycle. Wait 20 minutes before removing Mirra from the pool to allow the pump motor to cool. Turn the power supply off and unplug it from the electrical outlet before removing Mirra from the pool.

Why Mac OS X Mavericks is so much terrible in memory management? Can anyone tell me how to optimize it?


Hi John,
Millions of users are using Mavericks edition of Mac OS X. That's perfect for most, but some users claim slower Mavericks performance.
If you are also some of them, then here are some of the helpful tips which improve the system performance.

1. Update Apps: After installing Mavericks, run the software updates. You should do this to ensure that all the Apple software is running as per the latest version.

2. Check your Apps: Not all the available application in the system comes from the Apple App store. It is also possible some 3rd party apps eating system resources and as a result, it degrades the performance of Mac Mavericks.

3. Check Activity monitor and console: If things still run slow, then launch Activity monitor and Console.
Activity Monitor will show all the apps which consume more CPU resources and you can take appropriate step against those resource consuming apps.

Even, after trying these above written steps, the performance of Mavericks doesn't improve, then use software. You can give a try to Stellar Speed Up Mac or any other.
