What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dolphin Triton Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • This cleaner did a great job over the last few days. I do really like what Maytronics did with the filter basket system vs the former bag system.
  • A great pool cleaner! We have a L-shaped pool with about 25,000 gallons of water. I used to vacuum every morning for about 15 - 20 minutes.
  • We have a large pool and lots of trees that like to feed it. Bought this after some research and its awesome. Cleans the thing great, including the walls and entry stairs.
  • The Triton Plus does a much better job. I opened the box it was delivered in and had itceaning the pool in less than 5 minutes.
  • The only negatives so far is that it doesn't by default come with a caddy, and even though it has climbed the stairs of my pool I still have to sweep the stairs prior to running the unit.
Dolphin Premier Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner
  • This machine pulls the dirt, leaves and particles out of the pool instead of getting suck up into your DE filter which eventually clogs up and reduces vacuum pressure.
  • If you truly want a great pool cleaner - this is it. It does amazing work.
  • We have had this cleaner about 3 weeks now and it has done a great job at getting dirt and debris off the bottom of the pool.
  • He does leak a bit of dirt when pulled from the pool but I've found it is minimal if he's pulled out quickly and allowed to drain on the pool deck instead of pulled out slowly.
  • The power supply constantly mis-read the filter being full. I would pull the robot out and see that the robot still had plenty of capacity...

What customers say about "Cleaning"
Dolphin Triton Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • It cleans the bottom of the pool quite nicely, sucking up leave and other debris quite effectively; it's easy to empty out the large capacity debris basket....one big basket instead of two smaller ones on other models
  • Cleaning this robot is no longer a huge task taking more time than cleaning the pool itself. Washing filters is now a breeze.
  • Speaking of walls - this thing can climb! It gets up just out of the waterline to completely clean the side walls.
  • That bag was really hard to clean. This new model came with major improvement: removable filter basket. Cleaning this robot is no longer a huge task taking more time than cleaning the pool itself.
  • It doesn't clean the walls very well at all...only about 30% coverage
Dolphin Premier Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner
  • This product eliminates the back-braking chore of "brushing" the pool sides. Yes, it is expensive, but totally worth it's weight in gold!! You will not be disappointed!
  • Then another time with the filter and it makes the pool look like new. Great product recommended.
  • Usually it runs along the waterline a few feet before going back down into the water, across the pool and back up the other side.
  • Enything that ends up on the bottom of the pool is gone by the end of its cycle. As long as used regularly the walls stay clean.
  • My pool has never been so clean. the filters were able to pick up sand and algae without any issues. thanks again

What customers say about "Features"
Dolphin Triton Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Washing filters is now a breeze. And this might be the single best feature of this robotic pool cleaner.
  • The hand controlling with a smart phone works, but is more a game for the grandkids than something we use.
  • The top-clean feature is great. No more disgusting "underwear" - you flip open the top panel, pull out the debris basket, dump, rinse, and you're back in business in under 60 seconds.
  • There are features that are awesome: quick drain, the top-loading basket and super light.
  • Bluetooth & delayed cleaning features stopped working. Customer service doesn’t exist.
Dolphin Premier Robotic In-Ground Pool Cleaner
  • The push/pull knobs on the handle have NO MENTION whatsoever for the tricks needed to make it climb the walls bettter (had to resort to a guy on youtube to find out whatever these even did)
  • Comes with good features. Build quality is spotty but all manufacturers of these devices tend to cut corners and have crappy assembly too.
  • The different media types is an awesome feature and needed in my dusty backyard. The no-tangle cord really works, too.
  • This is an excellent product. It would be helpful if it had better instructions for the average person as to how to assemble and use the different features.
  • Features non taggle cord, easy cleaning debris collection system. Efficient logic to drive the cleaning cycle. Far more advanced than Aquabot for the same money. I would buy again.
