  • Question
    What is the purpose of the floats on the handle of the cleaner?
    Answer
    The floats are on the arm of the Dolphin. The floats are used to assist the buoyancy of the cleaner when turning on the bottom of the pool and scrubbing the waterline. To adjust the buoyancy, slide the float out on one side of the Dolphin. If the cleaner continues to have issues turning or scrubbing the waterline, pull the opposite float outward as well.
  • Question
    What are the voltage requirements for the Dolphin power supply?
    Answer
    The Dolphin requires a standard 120v outlet for power.
  • Question
    What are the ideal operating temperatures for my Dolphin cleaner?
    Answer
    Dolphin robotic pool cleaners are best used in temperatures between 43 and 93 degrees.
  • Question
    Should I remove the Styrofoam from the motor unit?
    Answer
    No, do not remove, this is not packing material. These help the Dolphin with buoyancy within the pool.

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

    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.

    I’ve used my Dolphin DX6 one season and about to start second. While putting great effort into cleaning myself, I cannot compare to the Dolphin. I will never be without one… I usually mow my lawn while DX6 is doing the hard work… Absolutely perfect…
    Thanks Maytronics…

    5 out of 5 DX6 and relax!

    The DX6 does an excellent job of vacuuming the bottom and sides of our in-ground pool via auto or remote control. Occasionally, it can get stuck on the protruding drains and therefore you should not leave it alone for long periods without taking notice of its movement. Sure beats constantly sweeping the bottom carefully towards the drains because it stirs up the dirt and redeposits it elsewhere. The DX6 is a great addition to the pool servicing. P.S. Danielle D’s pool is beautiful! To have that year round in this New England climate would be the ultimate. Beautiful pic!

    3 out of 5 Disappointed

    Melanie

    I bought this unit based on outstanding reviews. While it does clean admirably well when it works, I have had several problems. Within the first year, the rubber treads started to jump their track repeatedly. I sent the unit back for repair and while they did something to fix it, it still jumps the track, just far less often now.
    The remote control is nearly worthless- not at all intuitive to use and no useful functions. Did not come with any instructions.
    I run the robot daily and because it shuts itself off after a few days, I have to remember to check when it is off and restart the “auto” function. I have no idea who decided it needed to shut off after x number of days- but if you have to have that feature, then why not allow the user to determine the number of days?
    The filter bag is a cool idea with regards to re-using, but it is a pain to install/remove and very difficult to clean it well due to the thick seams. I ended up going back to using replaceable filters.
    The plastic housing is not very sturdy and the edges are wearing and chipping/ cracking where the unit bumps up against the wall.
    I love the long cable, but after a week mine is twisted up and I have to remove it and untangle/untwist it.
    It gets a 5 star for cleaning ability, but for the major $$ cost, the problems I have had take it to a 3 star and I will definitely shop around first when I need to replace this unit.

    Our Dolphin DX6 does a great job cleaning our pool. Gets all the debris and filters the water too. In our opinion, this is the best robotic pool cleaner out there. Very energy efficient because does not use a booster pump or pool pump. Just plug it into a standard outlet. If it ever wears out, we will buy another! Highly recommend!

    5 out of 5 We were ready to fill in the pool until we got our Dolphin

    Mary B-J

    For several years we struggled with 3 different brands and styles of cleaners. Ready to give up and call the bulldozer, our dealer suggested the Dolphin. He said it was “a bit pricey,” but well worth it. He knew us well, so we trusted his recommendation. So happy we did!

    5 out of 5 Sturdy and reliable

    Danielle D

    I have used for a year and have been pleased with performance. Even though my pool is indoor this vacuum still picks up a lot of debris.
    It seems like it is well made.
    The ease of use far exceeds the manual vaccuum. I would buy again it is worth the investment.
