    Dolphin dx5+, Kreepy Krauly 830, Hayward Tiger shark plus

    These all look about the same and seem to have abot the same features. Do they all clean about the same?

    For the price the kreepy krauly seems to be about $200 cheaper and filters finer down to 5 microns, works on floor, walls (steps& waterliene I think), its has a programable clean cycle if wanted. Also has a remote and caddy....

    The dolphin dx5+ seems to have more useful cleaning options like waterline, Ultraclean, regular, and can specify how often to climb the wall....

    Only steps I have are a 6 foot wide steps in shallow end.

    Or would you recommend something else.....Like a polaris 9550, but he is like $300 more for all the same features..but maybe a better cleaner??

    I'm going with a DX6. I like the versatility, and they have a very good reputation. Good luck in your choice.

    does the dx6 add anything over the d5xplus?
    I have been leaning towards these. But dioesn't appear the Dx5+ can be programmed for the week?
    Can the dx6?

    Thanks,

    Puled the trigger on the Polaris 9550.
    same price as dx6, but i like the controller, caddy, and top cleaning cartridge better than bottom mount bag.

    We will see how it performs next week!
