About the Product
The Polaris P825 Robotic Cleaner delivers optimal cleaning performance for all in-ground pools surfaces.
Lighter, smarter, and more powerful! The newly designed Triton with PowerStream is the answer to your pool cleaning needs! The new PowerStream Technology ensures superior wall and tile cleaning like never before. As the cleaner moves vertically up the wall, water is propelled out in multiple directions creating a constant grip. This enables precise cleaning while moving along the water line.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Polaris P825 Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Cleans very well. Cord is sometimes difficult to work with
  • I just bought this cleaner today and threw it in the first day I opened my pool. I swept most of the leaves first and let this thing loose.
  • Great system, just brought it today and it cleaned whole pool in less then 2 hours . cleans better then most pool guys. keeping machine n dumping pool guy
  • Have had MANY pool cleaners. I have a large pool, L shaped 40x30x12. Was at Leslie Pool Store last year and loved the video of the P825.
  • It seems it goes anywhere and every where, and loves the drain. It misses an awful lot of leaves and fine dirt.
Dolphin Triton Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • It travels well and climbs the walls all the way to the water line. So easy ans so effective.
  • This robot cleaner is easy to use, a good weight and does not tangle the cord.
  • It has Never tangled its cord, escaped the pool, or failed to clean like it did the very first day out of its box. I would recommend this pool cleaner to everyone.
  • 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.
  • Cord can get tangled up a bit, but does not seem to impact cleaning.
  • The only problem it seems to have is with the corners on the deep end... I think it's to large to handle them well. I brush them down once a week and all is well. Easy to clean too! I would buy this again.

What customers say about "Cleaning"
Polaris P825 Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • This baby has been all over the pool and cleaning up the walls and such. I will post later on how it holds up but so far it cleans much better than my old blue Polaris.
  • I was amazed at how well it cleaned the pool. The filter was so easy to empty and clean.
  • The perfect cleaner. Super easy to clean the filter basket and does a great job scrubbing the water line.
  • The cleaner works well where it covers. My only disappointment is that it only covers about 90% of the pool and doesn't seem to learn my pool.
  • I am not sure what the cleaning percentage is supposed to be with pool cleaners in general, but I would say this is probably 70 to 75 % at best, just seems to blow leaves all over rather than suck them up, Not sure???
Dolphin Triton Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • Cleans my pool very well. Climbs walls, Stairs, able to go right over main drain, does the job very efficiently with minimal spots missed.
  • It cleans the tile about 2 inches above the water line so fill the pool 1/2 way up the tile. Gets all of the pool and the steps.
  • PowerStream Works! It holds to the wall quite well, actually cleaning the sides AND the tile above the water line. This is the first cleaner I have owned in 20 years that does that.
  • Cleaning cycle is a bit short, not sure if it's covering everything in 2 hours.
  • Even though it says it covers the entire pool because it learns your pool shape and size, it will not cover each square foot; you will see stripes of green on the walls where it misses or even on the bottom of the pool.

What customers say about "Features"
Polaris P825 Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • The robot is light weight, easy to clean, and works amazing. I'm so happy with my purchase!
  • This unit quite running after 15 minutes and glad it was still under warranty. They have replaced the head unit, cable and pump unit.
  • This one is easy to clean and very efficient. Highly recommended!
  • The basket is easy to pop out and rinse clean with the hose. Very happy with the product.
  • Poor design, one unexpected thunder storm. Control unit got water inside and now dead. Not water proof makes it a potential shirk hazard
Dolphin Triton Robotic Pool Cleaner
  • It has a convenient basket with good filters including a fine filter for algae. It is easy to clean.
  • his 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. Washing filters is now a breeze.
  • The top loading basket makes cleaning it out SOOOOO much easier. The changeable filter to mesh panels are really cooly.
  • 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.
  • Cleans like a champ and gets itself off he drain much better than my old cleaner. Scrubs the walls and tike line daily. The filters pick up the finest dust and dirt.
