    Love the vac, hate the cord. Terribly tangled, impossible to untangle.

    I have had this cleaner for almost a year. In general, I love it! It picks up small debris as well as larger leaves and twigs. It is simple to set up and a breeze to use and clean. One unexpected benefit that I am thankful for is that is helps circulate the water from the bottom. This may not be a problem for some pool owners, but I have no filtration at the bottom of my pool and it was super difficult keeping my pool clean and clear because the filtration was only happening at the skimmer level. When the motor on my pool filter broke, I was able to keep my pool in good shape using just the Solo, until I had the repair done.
    The negatives are this: the cleaning pattern is so random and does not really cover every square inch of the pool, so I still have to brush it at times to touch up.
    Also, the bands around the wheels sometimes come off during a cleaning cycle, but they are easily fixed once I fish them out from the pool bottom.
    Overall, this has been a great relief for me- I use less chemicals and much less muscle keeping my pool clean. As another person commented, my pool has never been cleaner. I am glad I invested in this pool cleaner.

    4 out of 5 Design flaw

    Bill Edling

    The solo brushes sand to the edges and then is unable to pick it up due to it’s design. Otherwise it does a fine job throughout the middle. I suggest upgrading to the fine particulate filter.

    5 out of 5 Best pool cleaner I’ve had

    Lisa

    I have tried a Kreepy Krawly as well as a barracuda pool cleaners and after a short time they both didn’t work well. I would always have to move it to keep it going. The barracuda has a diaphragm that gets a leaf or something stuck and tears it so that’s another trip to pool store. This dolphin cleaner is awesome. If I would have know how well it worked I would have saved myself a lot of grief. My pool store had a demo and let me take it home for a couple days to see if I wanted to invest in something a little more expensive. I put it in my pool which is a 60 ft lap pool and the robot worked wonders. I was so impressed that I called the company the second day and told them to order one for me. It climbs up the walls and when it gets to the top it scrubs it. It is well worth the price!

    5 out of 5 Very satisfied.

    Joe Griffin

    I purchased the Solo after Hurricane Michael destroyed our screened enclosure.

    I have been using it for six weeks now, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. The Solo is the “entry level” Dolphin, but let me tell you – it is a cleaning machine. It collects sand and dirt, leaves, and even caught a few nails we missed cleaning up after the hurricane.

    Buy the Solo. You won’t regret it.

    I adore my Dolphin Solo. My pool has never been cleaner. I have had no issues with the power cord and I have been using my dolphin for about a month now. I have open pool (no cage) with large oak trees in my front and back yard, tons of leaves and twigs fall into my pool, daily. My Dolphin Solo goes to work and the leaves, twigs, and moss are swept away. I also love how it scrubs the walls and floor. Thank you for an amazing product.

    Debbie

    The Dolphin Solo climbed the wall so far in the shallow end that I thought it was coming out but it didn’t. This is my 1st day with it & I’m happy. It even picked up sand. I was going to order the ultra fine basket but I will see what it does for a while.
