Is Dolphin Automatic Pool Cleaner The Best?

polaris_fifthYou didn’t mention your budget. A Dolphin Automatic Pool Cleaner is by al means great, byt ff you’re looking to spend 300 dollars or under, then from a service guy’s point of view on effectiveness, cost, ease of repair, least things that go wrong with them, it’s a Kreepy Krauly, hands down.

Sure Baracudda markets itself as having no moving parts, but the one part that does all the action also wears out on a yearly basis. If you ask me, it’s also a moving part, so their literature is pretty misleading.
If you’re budget allows spending over a grand, then the Polaris vac sweep 360 or 380 is most certainly the way to go. The only issue here is if your pool currently has a plumbing line going to the pool it can use. Without one, you’ll have to go the over deck route, which then is a hose to trip over, lying on the deck. That’s the only drawback.

These two cleaners are totally different in their collection and operation. The Kreepy uses suction side plumbing (debris to the pump basket and filter), the Polaris uses pressure side, with it’s own booster pump and it’s collection is a bag attached to the Polaris head. So check out these befor settling on a Dolphin Automatic Pool Cleaner.

Maintenance of Dolphin Pool Cleaner

Before removing the Dolphin from the water, switch off the power supply. Pull the cable with a steady motion to the surface. Your Dolphin should be lifted out of the water by the handle – not by the cable. When removing the Dolphin from the water, rest the dolphin on the pools edge for a few seconds to allow the water to drain. When out of the water place the Dolphin on its side, not on its brushes and always rinse the filter bag immediately. Slide back locking plates to release bottom lid. Remove filter bag clips and remove the filter support wires. Empty the debris into a garbage can. Reverse the filter back and hose the filter down or machine wash in synthetic rinse. Always clean the filter bag before leaving it to dry. Remove cover and flaps, hose down, and reassemble. Place the clean filter bag on the support wires, make sure the label is on the outside and is placed centrally along the bottom lid. Put the bottom lid assembly back into the body, slide the locking plates under the wire clips.

Other parts that may need cleaning includes the filter screen and impeller blades. Before removing the impeller cover be sure to that the power supply is in the off position. Untwist the impeller cover, to clean around and under the impeller blades.

Don’t forget to change the diagonal position of the handle before storing the Dolphin Pool Cleaner.

When planning a private or public pool, the question of pool maintenance is paramount. Jumping into a dirty pool is not only an unpleasant experience, it might also be a considerable health risk. Cleaning of the swimming pool used to be a time consuming, expensive and not very effective manual way to have a clean pool. Often the pool is not clean at all – it just looks that way. If the cleaning is done too quickly, the dirty is raised into the water and will sink back later.Dolphin Pool Cleaner - leaf in pool

Other solutions are Suction Cleaning and Pressure Cleaning. One of the problems with the suction cleaner or pressure cleaner method is that the pool sides are not cleaned and the coverage of the cleaning is random and does not scrub and brush.

The Dolphin Robotic Pool Cleaner has many advantages over the above mentioned methods. The Dolphin Pool Cleaner vacuums, scrubs, brushes, sweeps, circulates water and chemicals. It contains a filter, which saves the main pool filter. The Dolphin Pool Cleaner climbs the wall of the pool and offers a unique coverage of cleaning. The cleaner has a short cycle time and is very easy to install.

Cleaning even the most challenging shapes and sizes are no problem to the Dolphin Pool Cleaner. Of course the filter in the cleaner needs cleaning, but this is a very easy task to do. Should you prefer, the Dolphin Dynamic and other models comes with a remote control, which enables you to manually guide the Dolphin into and out of tight spots and to tailor your own cleaning program for unique pools.
