    What? Never seem my Dolphin do this!

    Are pool robots supposed to climb the walls? I was watching this video: Maytronics Dolphin Nautilus Plus Review in Action - YouTube and i see the Dolphin get almost out of the pool.
    Mine never does that. Mine, whenever it gets to the wall, it tilts, stops and then goes backwards. I have never seen it climb the wall. Is it supposed to do this? Or do i just have a different model and mine is just for the pool floor and not for the wall?

    Still learning,

    Can you elaborate on that? I don't think the handle on the Dolphin Zenit 10 is adjustable.

    Toon,

    If you Google Dolphin Zenit you will see that there are several models.. 10, 15, 20, 30...

    It appears to me that the Zenit 10 only cleans the bottom and cove area where the wall meets the bottom. The other versions, 15, 20, and 30 all state that they climb the wall and clean the water line. They have a different type of handle that helps makes this possible.
