    Doheny's Discovery Powered by Dolphin?

    Looking to get a robotic pool cleaner and I stumbled upon the Doheny's Discovery Powered by Dolphin http://www.doheny.com/poolsupplies/D...hin-13416.html It's on sale and the price seems great.

    As far as I can tell that's likely the Dolphin S200 rebranded? Does anyone know for sure? If I don't get this I was also considering the Dolphin Nautilus Plus. Not sure of the pros/cons of each though. Not easy info to find. Leaning towards this S series style robot because I think that PowerStream thing would help it in my pool.

    Yes, it's basically a rebranded Dolphin S200....I think they rebrand it, so they can sell it online..as Maytronics doesn't allow online sales, as it voids their warranty. You have to buy from an authorized dealer.

    Man who knew the world of robotic pool cleaners was so confusing. That Discovery seems to have features of the s200 and s300. I can't figure out exactly what it is.

    Have you looked at the dolphin Triton - I'm leaning that way
    Anybody have any input?
    Those cleaners are pretty expensive.

    I have seen the Triton. Leaning towards the s series because it seems like it will work better in my pool with the jets it uses to stay on the wall. I also like the way the basket is laid out.

    Any more updates on this model? I am very interested in purchasing this model. If I do buy this Doherty Discovery, besides the caddy, what else am I missing between this and the regular Dolphin S200, S300 and S300i models?

    Re: Doheny's Discovery Powered by Dolphin?

    I'm still considering it. I tried to get a local price on the S200, but I can't get the only dealer in my area to call me back, so I'm leaning towards the Doheny Discovery. What I can't figure out is if the warranty is covered through Doheny or through Maytronics. I called Maytronics about it, and got some sales rep for their midwest region. He was nice enough, but he wasn't super familiar with the Doheny Discovery. He did say that Doheny is one of their huge retailers, and that's totally legit. He had to go to the website to even know what I was talking about though. He said it appeared to be very similar to the S200 to him, but has some different features. I'm just curious though if since it's LIKE the S200, but not exactly the S200, can I get parts for it if I need it? That's what has me considering the Nautilus Plus since I know parts are easily available. But I really like the filter basket on the S series ones like the Discovery plus that whole Powerstream mobility thing.

    I'm with you, I like the S series features, like the waterline tile cleaning and the removable top loaded basket. If you do purchase from them, make sure you enter the current online promotional code to get at least $10 more off to cover the handling. For me this model would be $650 shipped to my door including no out of state tax.
