    Robot

    I'm looking at all the options and reviews but not sure what would be best since I've never owned a pool before. They are gonna dig this week, so I thought I better get this ordered. Our pool will be a 20x44x30 with a 6x20 sun deck and underliner steps. Looking at the Dolphin oasis Z5 but really don't want to spend that much if possible. We are lucky because we don't have any close trees, so leaves will only be an issue in the fall when they blow from the neighbors. Suggestions please.
    20x44x30 L shape Only Alpha with 6' sun deck with 2 bubblers, 350k heater, 1 1/2 HP and SWG. Dolphin Nautilus Plus. Estimated construction start time is beginning of Aug.

    We absolutely love our Dolphin s300i. It is not inexpensive, but it is amazing. It even climbs our steps, onto our bench and scrubs the waterline tile. We are also surrounded by trees and bamboo and have debris year round.

    This might be a better fit in the Cleaners sub-forum. We struggled with the same robot choice recently and decided on the Dolphin Triton Plus. It is very similar to the Z5. It has a weekly timer function that the Z5 does not but the Z5 has a 1 year longer warranty. The Triton Plus is about $150 cheaper than the Z5.

    I just got the Triton Plus from Poolzoom and I am Very Happy with it!!! My pool was almost 2 weeks with water, it was REALLY dirty and the Dolphin did an outstanding job.

    Good Luck!!
