outstanding for the price Review by Kurt
Marge (we named it) is doing a fantastic job for us. Pool looks great. So happy we hired her.
Cleans Well...But... Review by Charley
I had an aging Polaris that needed replacing. This looked like the ticket. I am VERY pleased with the way it scrubs and the way it filters the water, not to mention the price is reasonable for the quality. It does a nice job of covering the whole pool without tangling the cord. BUT...I really expected it to pick up leaves and debris better. It gets the sludge and algae, but it picks up very little in the way of leaves. I guess I'll have to use the Polaris for the leaves.
Good Cleaner/Inaccurate Description Review by Scott
We bought his cleaner about 10 days ago (June 8) after doing a considerable amount of research. We used a Kreepy Krauly for over 20 years before that. One of the options that every reviewer advised was a no-tangle swivel and that was a major reason for purchasing this product as the description in Doheny's catalogue listed it. I was most disappointed that this product doesn't in fact have the swivel. I called Doheny's to register my complaint and after talking with two reps was given the phone number for Dolphin (Maytronics). I also spoke with technology support at Dolphin and was told that this new series of cleaners DOES NOT have the swivel cord and that the programming in the electronics eliminates the need for the swivel? Based on this info, I decided to give the cleaner a trial.
Overall, afger 5 cleanings, I am pleased with the cleaner. The first couple cycles it appeared to cover about 90% of the areas and walls of our 30 x 16 in ground pool, 9 ft deep. It does climb the walls, scrub the coves and water's edge, and does a great job of picking up the debris. The filter basket lifts out of the top of the unit and it doesn't seem to dribble debris out of the intake ports when lifting it from the pool. I like that it comes with two sets of filters, fine and ultra fine. On the downside, it does take a while to disassemble the filter basket and clean out each of the four filters.
I will say that it seems to get hung up on the main drain at the deep end. After about 30 seconds of spinning its treads, the unit does a little wheels and does eventually get off the drain.
The advertised 60 foot cord is actually about 2 feet short of 60. I have noticed that the cord without swivel does get a couple twists after a two hour cycle. Leaving it unattended on schedule for a week, might be an issue.
Other than my stated concerns, I'm pleased with the cleaner. The pool is pristinely clear and I would have given it 5 stars had the product arrived with the advertised features. I hope it lasts as long as the Kreepy Krauly did
best buy Review by LG
I just purchased this a week ago, after two uses I will never go back to a standard vac, or even the kreepy krauly. I have a 16x32 metal pool with a 8.5 foot deep end, vinyl liner and this thing does wonders. it is nearly silent operation and does not put strain on your pump or filter. it does a great job scrubbing the walls and floor and turned my green pool into a clean pool. the price is high but it is well worth the peace of mind that comes with it. the warranty is great, you can register online, it only took about 10 minuets to put together on my own. the caddy is worth it as it would get a bit heavy on it's own. this is a great option for all those older/non traditional pools that normal vacuums struggle with. this did not get stuck once and when it "backed itself into a corner" it easily found its way out.
Excellent Pool Cleaner Review by DOLPHIN
I put vacuum in the pool and it was clean with in an hour. The pool is 18X36 and at dirt from winter storage. The remote help me guide the vacuum to the dirtiest places and cut way down on the run time. I highly recommend this vacuum system.
