    Maytronics Parts

    There have been a few questions lately regarding parts for the Maytronics Dolphin Robots, including a recent one directing folks to an e-Bay seller who had filter cartridges for $49.

    I decided I needed not only new cartridges, but two additional complete filter assemblies so I could just swap them out.

    I tracked down the e-Bay seller and here is their information. The maintain full exploded diagrams (example of the M5 for the Maytronics units on their site and keep most parts in stock.

    They are based in Colorado and when I called they were friendly and quick to help!

    Interesting ... might have to take a look and see if I can figure out why my 2 robots stopped working. Although I am guessing it is something in the "motor" assembly and thus likely close to $400.

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    Is that the same link I sent you in PM Tim?

    If so, I was shocked when I saw the cart filters for $49.

    Their web site says they support you fixing things yourself or you can ship to them. I'm a hands on type of guy.... But, then again mine isn't really broken.

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    Fantastic to hear.

    I ordered my filters from the eBay store and they are fine. BNIB OEM parts and packaging. $49 made me extremely happy, and looking at the eBay store, they seemed to be a good outfit.

    If all the parts had been listed on e-Bay I would have also, but I wanted the screen filters, frames and the cloth back-flow valves. The frames were on e-Bay ($4.99) but not the other parts.

    She told me it would be shipped out today - can't beat that for service....

    Well, less than two hours after I talked to them I have an e-mail with my invoice and a tracking number. Can't beat that for service.

    I've thought about that very thing for easy swaps. What did the frames set you back? Send a pm if you'd rather.

    I agree. With all the pollen and cr*p falling out of the pine trees I'm running it most of the day. I'm guessing it will be easier to just swap filters and keep it running.

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    I would have guessed 22 each as a good starting number to be honest. I think it's a great idea, and I'll be doing that too before long. Hopefully, I won't be needing parts soon, but I know where I'll be looking when I do. Sorry if I missed it Tim, but how long have you been running your M5? Visually, it looks like the tracks will be the first thing to go.

    I had to look in Quicken to be sure, but last week was one year.

    OK, we are on the same track then. it will be interesting (to me) comparing notes. I keep hearing three years as the high water mark for reliability.

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    I got the parts for the new filter cartridges for my M5 last Friday (quick shipping), but when I went to assemble them I noticed the rotating latches on the tops of th eframes were not included. A quick call back confirmed that I missed them in the exploded diagram. Four went out in an envelope Friday and I had them Wednesday.

    The filters are assembled and its fabulous being able to just swap out filters. With pollen season in full swing the M5 is getting a work out.

    Quit posting about this Tim...

    You're forcing me to get a spare set!!

    Kidding aside, my cleaner came with 4? Or more spares. Did you throw yours out with the box??

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    Mine came with 2 frames and 8 filters (4 mesh spring and 4 normal filters). I bought 2 more frames and 4 additional mesh spring filters.

    Re: Maytronics Parts

    Clips? My M5 came with 4

    I'm a believer in "spares". I also have 4 skimmer baskets so I can just swap out the two dirty ones with two clean ones.....

    My wife has a word for me that matches part of the anatomy

    Re: Maytronics Parts



    Yea, mine came with at least four spare snappy clips for holding the filters in place.

    I like your line of thinking, but you keep costing me more money. Now I have to get spare skimmer baskets too.
