    The Dolphin is not designed to be used with an extension cord. There are many different types of extension cords and we do not recommend using one. However, it is safe to use a surge protector with the Dolphin. This will help protect the Dolphin from surges in power such as thunderstorms.

  • Question
    Can I purchase a Dolphin pool cleaner and use it abroad?
    Answer

    Dolphin pool cleaners purchased in the United States must be operated in North America in order to retain the warranty rights. Using any Dolphin pool cleaner outside of North America (that is purchased in the US) voids the warranty service agreement.

  • Question
    Can I leave the power supply unit outside in the elements?
    Answer
    The power supply unit is an electrical device which must be protected from the elements. When in use the unit needs to remain dry. Do not submerge the power supply unit in water as this will damage the internal components.
  • Question
    Are Dolphin pool cleaners safe to use when I'm swimming in my pool?
    Answer
    Dolphin pool cleaners are safe to use for the general public, however, (for safety precautions) we do not recommend swimming while the cleaner is in use. We also do not recommend leaving the cleaner in the pool for long extended periods of time.*

     

    *Please note the pool cleaner may stay in the water when using features such as the weekly timer for automating cleaning when you are away from your home.

    Cleans sides and bottom in no time. Two filters come with it, one is a screen and the other a filter for polishing the water. Mine is 2 year old and may make it two more before it may need parts. Runs every other day all year. It replaced a Hayward Phantom turbo and not running the pump for that saved a bundle.

    This is only our second pool robot. Our first robot was an Aquabot, which lasted for several years…but when it started to go bad, it tanked. The Discovery is a much more sleek robot and climbs walls far better and does an overall better job cleaning than the Aquabot. I love the cartridge option as well. I researched pool cleaners and reviews for months prior to making this purchase and I do not regret it.

    If you want to be done with manual pool cleaning or inefficient power hungry cleaning systems, the Dolphin Discovery robot is the right choice. I completed a ton of research to find it, but it was worth the time. It took three cycles to clean my pool the first time and then once or twice a week. It also took a load off my pump and filter. Between my robot and my new Pentair VS pump my energy usage dropped from 700 to 40 kWh per month. Also, the amount of chemicals required seems to be reduced by about half. By mid season this year, the savings realized will pay for the new robot and pump installation.
