    Dolphin cleaner recommendation

    I'm looking to get some recommendations for my pool.

    It takes me about 1.5 hours to brush and vacuum my pool and I'm looking to get rid of this labor.

    My pool is about 16K gallons, screened in, but we do get a lot of rain.

    I'd like something that will brush and clean the pool, and I don't care too much for a remote since I manually do whatever it misses. I'd like to get something in the 600 dollar range but don't mind waiting for a deal to do so. It seems that dolphins are considered a great brand with 3 year warranties.

    I don't think you'll find a Dolphin in the $600 range with a 3 year warranty. For the most part, the more you spend on a robot the more cleaning power you'll get and a longer warranty. Dolphin's seem to have good reviews here at TFP.

    I think I may find the nautilus or triton to be in my price range. Any reviews and what is a good price for either one?

    Type nautilus in the search function in the upper right corner and a bunch of threads will pop up.

    The triton is currently 660 on amazon. Is the premier that much better that it is worth waiting for a sale on that versus getting the triton?

    Re: Dolphin cleaner recommendation

    a triton for 660 will be a refurb with one year warranty. Why not look at the primal X3? 600 brand new with 2 year warranty.

    it's new with a 2 year warranty. I went to the link below and the price was 670, and I double checked it was not used. I am contacting the seller for more info, and I will contact Maytronics to verify the serial number as well when I get the unit.

    I picked up a triton a couple days ago for the 660$ price - thanks for the tip. No tax and free shipping. All gone now at that price. It's definitely new and includes full warranty

    No idea where you guys are looking, but that link says nothing about 660 price. Heck, I would have bought one for that price.

    The price was from one of amazons vendors. They sold all of them so it now defaults back to amazons 795$ price. There were only 2 left when I purchased

    Yup, the two times I saw the deal it was only for 2. The seller was national discount pool supplies and it had free shipping.
