    Dolphin Nautilus Plus....styrofoam pieces wrapped around wheels?

    Can someone tell me if these white styrofoam looking pieces (circled in red) wrapped around the wheels are suppose to be removed or left on before using? Thanks!

    I believe those are part of the "combined" brush and should be left as they are. I have them on mine, and most pictures of the Dolphins show them also. The only thing I had to remove was some clear plastic that covered the brushes.

    I almost cut them off before discovering they are supposed to be there. They come hard as rock, but soften right up once in the pool. I believe they are supposed to help when climbing the walls.
