What Customers Say

Owners of the Dolphin are impressed with the way that it can clean up sand, silt, and fine debris quickly and easily, climbing the walls in lots of areas so as to provide a top of the line cleaning experience. They recommend that if you have a lot of sand in your pool, you use the easy filter cleaning method to remove the Triton after the first hour, clean it out, and then return it to the pool. This helps to prevent dirt from being released back into the pool when you’re taking the robot out of the water.

Compared to other pool cleaners, with the Dolphin, you don’t have to attach it to the wall pump or the skimmer, all you have to do is drop it in, plug in the power and press the blue button to get it started. It cleans the entire pool, including the bottom, sides, and steps, meaning that you don’t have to worry about fighting with hoses anymore. When the cleaner is finished, just take it out, rinse the filters, and put it back into its caddy to wait for the next time the pool needs to be thoroughly scrubbed and vacuumed.
