Thread: Dolphin M400 powers supply enclosure

    Dolphin M400 powers supply enclosure

    I was wondering if anyone has an enclosure they purchased or made to house the Dolphin m400 specifically its power supply.

    My shed is a hike from my pool so I'd like something I can keep on the pool deck or near the pool equipment.

    I'm specifically concerned about keep the power supply dry in case it rains when the robot is working as the pool store guy told me it is not waterproof on water resistant.

    I was looking at small plastic shed but concerned if they have enough venting for any heat the unit generates?

    First run it did a nice job with my very dirty pool and cleaning the filters was as simple as everyone said it would be.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to TFP.

    I've never seen anyone mention one, but it doesn't mean I didn't miss that. Did yours come with a Caddy, and holder built into it for the supply?

    It did come with the caddy and holder and it works great. I'm just concerned with rain coverage more then storage I guess.

    What does everyone else do if it rains? I'm sure it happens that a sudden unexpected T storm pops up and the power supply gets soaked. Or is that not an issue?

    After going thru 3 power supplies for my DX4, I now cover mine with a smoker cover I found at Lowes. I've not had a power supply problem since covering it.

    I keep my power supply in a sheltered location to keep both water and direct sunlight off of it. Heat is a killer of any electronic device, so being in direct sun is not going to do it any good.
