REVIEW – Of all the gadgets I review, my wife prefers that I review the ones that actually do something, like cleaning, for example. She doesn’t care about my audio fixation. No, as long as I review something that makes her life easier, she’s ok with my time testing and writing. Just so you know, she approves of this review. But do we (more importantly, the Queen) approve of the new Roborock Dyad Wet and Dry vacuum to help keep our floors clean?

What is that?

The Dyad is Roborock’s newest and only wet/dry vacuum. It does what the product name implies. It cleans and vacuums wet messes leaving the floor clean. DyadPower – what Roborock calls its battery/charger system – simply means it’s wireless.

The Dyad uses room-temperature tap water (or water mixed with Roborock’s floor cleaning solution) from its clean water tank, wets three counter-rotating rollers, then vacuums the wet mess into a tank dirty water. The vacuuming action leaves the floor dry (or slightly damp which evaporates quickly).

It has an LED display that shows battery level, water tank levels and different cleaning modes: Floor Dry, Auto and Max. The Dyad comes with a charging station that doubles as a self-cleaning stand that helps keep the rollers clean after use.

The Dyad also has voice alerts, more on that later in the review.

Design and features

Since my wife is a neat freak, she insists on keeping our floors spotless. She also insists on doing it herself, because I “don’t do as good a job as she does” (her words, absolutely true). So that usually gets me through. Sometimes I help with vacuuming and mopping, but that’s rare.

Saturday is usually cleaning day and in the past our tiled floors (carpeting is prohibited in our house) were steam cleaned after vacuuming. I was never a fan of the steam cleaner as it pushed out a dirtier mop/pad the more you used it. So when Roborock made the Dyad available for review, I jumped on it hoping to convince my wife that it might be a more hygienic method of cleaning floors.

After the Roborock Dyad arrived, we immediately encountered a problem: the machine was telling us verbally that the clean water tank was empty, when it had just been filled. Note that the Dyad will not work if the clean water tank is empty, or even if the Dyad thinks it is.

Memo to Roborock: Although voice alerts can be handy, please turn the volume down. It sounds like a sci-fi countdown to Armageddon, unless the pod bay doors aren’t closed fast enough. The good news is that the voice prompts can be turned off or the language can be changed if you want to hear audio prompts in Spanish or French (my wife’s favorite).

When we realized we had a faulty Dyad, I phoned Roborock support and they walked me through some corrective steps, which did not fix the problem. The extremely nice and helpful support guy (well done Roborock!) took the issue to the next level and within days Roborock sent out a replacement unit. We were later told that the first shipment of Dyad cleaners were pre-production units that had a circuit board issue that was fixed by the time the production units were shipped.

Once the replacement arrived, everything went well. Let me rephrase that: once the replacement arrived, everything went wonderfully well. The Roborock dyad rocks.

Using the Dyad is quite simple. Out of the box, all you have to do is snap the handle, then snap the charging station/roller cleaner together. The Dyad will need to be fully charged before use.

Battery life is rated at 35 minutes in auto mode. Max mode has much shorter battery life. My suggestion is to use the Dyad in Auto mode only.

Although not necessary, if there is a mess that requires Max mode, I suggest wiping up what you can with paper towels. before using the Dyad. This way the Dyad can have an easier cleaning time.

The Roborock Dyad vacuum doesn’t stand on its own, although it does come with what you might call a kickstand. With the stand extended, the Dyad’s handle won’t fall all the way to the floor, sparing your back.

When activated, you can select Auto or Max modes from the buttons on the handle. Auto mode automatically adjusts as you clean. The LED display has a dial that goes from blue to red indicating the amount of “dirt” encountered by the Dyad. Max mode is what it says: full throttle. Again, I recommend avoiding Max.

As the Roborock Dyad vacuum cleans, two rows of rollers spin in opposite directions, pushing the mess into the Dirty Water Tank as it vacuums. This method also cleans better since the rollers pass over the same area in different directions as you clean. These rollers go all the way to the edge, so you can clean right up to the baseboards. The Dyad’s cleaner head pivots, making it easy to clean around table and chair legs and other obstacles. However, it won’t lower flat to go far under furniture.

Pushing and pulling the Dyad requires minimal effort. Rotating rollers help it move in the desired direction. However, when turned off, its weight can make it difficult to move or carry.

Not only will the Dyad pick up spills and other wet messes, it can also pick up dry spills, such as snacks or dry dog ​​food. Even so, I wouldn’t buy the Dyad for this reason. It’s easier to get a broom and a dustbin to sweep up dry spills than to lug around a vacuum cleaner – any vacuum cleaner. The Dyad shines with wet or wet/dry messes.

If you have pets, you may want to vacuum the floor first with a regular vacuum cleaner. Roborock says pet hair can clog the Dyad’s rollers. Getting your hair done first can save you some trouble.

The upper fresh water and lower dirty water tanks can be easily removed for filling and emptying. Once done, they snap back into place. The dirty water tank can be disassembled for easy cleaning. When you’re done cleaning, simply empty the tank into the sink or outdoors if you prefer.

Roborock sells a liquid cleaner that you can add to the Dyad, but I’ve never been a fan of applying any type of floor cleaner as they can attract more dirt with the residue they leave behind. Oddly enough, Roborock didn’t include a sample of its own cleaner in the box. Maybe that’s a clue?

Although the rollers are self-cleaning in the dock after use, they will still occasionally need to be removed for more thorough cleaning. The self-cleaning mode allows more time between these manual cleanings.

The cool thing is that when you vacuum, the power of the Roborock Dyad practically dries the floor while you clean. Only in places I saw wet residue after cleaning. And even that evaporates quickly. Thus, wooden or laminate floors are safe when using the Dyad.

What I like

  • Cleans well
  • Dries the floor as it cleans
  • Easy to install and use
  • Self-cleaning
  • Powerful

What I would change

  • Ability to lower the volume of voice prompts without turning off

Final Thoughts

As I said earlier, the Roborock Dyad Wet and Dry vacuum is a welcome addition to our home. My wife likes the way it cleans without spilling more and more dirty water on the floor. We can in fact To feel barefoot cleaner floor after use, something we couldn’t feel after steam cleaning. In fact, since using the Dyad, the steam mop hasn’t been used at all. My wife loves the Dyad, as do I.

Now, if I could just make him appreciate the audio material…
