What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • This cleaner has held up, I have not had ANY problems with it, and it works just as good as the day I bought it!
  • I love this pool vacuum. We have a large pool - 20' x 40' and 10' deep in the deep end. We also live in a wooded area surrounded by oak trees.
  • I am very pleased with the Dolphin Nautilus Pool Cleaner. I had to call the support people at Maytronics to find out why it was just cleaning 2 one inch wide tracks on it's first 3 cleaning cycles.
  • Now for the product actually cleaning the pool. I have a very standard 16x32 foot pool and I've found the Dolphin can't clean the pool in a "single" cycle ( it was only lightly dirty ).
  • This cleaner has held up, I have not had ANY problems with it, and it works just as good as the day I bought it!
Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Pretty good unit. Does a job fairly well on my vinyl california pool.
  • Works wonderfully! I had a salt water pool filled with pollen, and you could tell right away where the Dolphin Nautilus PLUS had been.
  • The pool had been up and running less than a week when it became obvious I would have to have a pool cleaner, referred to from here on as a "sucky" (blame the name on my mother).
  • It's a powerful scrubber cleaner that pretty much does what it's advertised to do. Using this robotic cleaner along with some algae and shock chemicals totally cleaned up the pool in 2 to 3 days.
  • The pool cleaner does an awesome job when it is working. However, it has been in for repairs twice under warranty now and just died again.

What customers say about "Cleaning"
Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Dolphin does not hook up to my pool pump and filter - it is self-contained - so no clogging my filter and backwashing.
  • The filters are easy to remove and clean.
  • It actually climbs up the walls and comes part way out of the pool while cleaning to get the edges.
  • Has trouble with cleaning the angles - the 135 degree angles where the pool slope meets the rising wall of the pool are hard to get at. I usually brush these just prior to starting the vacuum.
  • Large leaves tend to get stuck in the intake slots on the bottom of the unit - cannot handle our large oak leaves.
Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Able to clean safety ledge, steps, walls, floor, no problem, 4WD. Came assembled, ready to use, with extra filters.
  • The top loading filters are easy to remove and clean. They save your regular pool filters and skimmers from catching all the debris that would require backwashing.
  • This thing climbs the walls and cleans my 15k gallon pool perfectly.
  • The filters just pop in the top. there's 2 sets. A screen set that seems like it's for a pool opening with a lot of leaves.
  • It climbs my walls easily, but it refuses to climb the stairs.

What customers say about "Features"
Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • The ability to climb walls is cool, but not effective, getting back to the scrub lacking ability.
  • Also, the anti-cord tangling feature works great on the Dolphin. I was constantly unwinding the cord on the 9300.
  • I am very happy with my new Dolphin. Not only do I like the swivel cord feature, but the design of the debris collector is superior to the Aquabot for both cleaning out as well as installing into the body of the robot.
  • It also seems the entry price point has gone up and has less features than older generations which is completely opposite of any consumer product you can think about.
  • Also a negative is that there is no way to schedule it to start cleaning at a specific time.
Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • It also comes with a set that seems to pick up finer stuff. It would be nice if the manual told you which was which.
  • It's faster. I dropped it in and it zoomed off to the other end of the pool in about 30 seconds.
  • Love the top access filters and the job it does. Has the ability to schedule cleaning. Have not used the feature yet but the cleaner works awesome!!
  • The CleverClean feature seems to work, as patterning has improved noticeably over 7 days. The machine is climbing walls and steps.
  • It has a nice repeat feature that allows you to set it to run once, daily, 3 days, 7 days, but that's pretty much useless if you have to clean the filters all the time.
