    Dolphin nautilus plus

    Found a site online selling it with two sets of each filters for 688 with free shipping. Seems to be the best price I have found for a good middle of the road robot cleaner. I have a 22k ig vinyl pool. Would yall recommend this cleaner or something else in the same price range?

    I have a in ground vinyl and i have the regular Nautilus. It's a great cleaner without any bells and whistles. I love the thing and if a good basic cleaner suits your needs, then I would recommend it.

    That looks like a pretty good price too.

    Re: Dolphin nautilus plus

    Wanted to chime in.... Just got my Dolphin Nautilus off Amazon ($515) a week or so ago. I am going from a Polaris 280 cleaner to the Dolphin. The only question I have is why didn't I switch sooner. The cleaner is worth its weight in gold in my opinion. Set it and forget it. I have a 23K gallon pool and it does a awesome job. My old Polaris would occasionally miss a spot and I would have to direct it to the spot. Not with my Dolphin. Throw it in, hit the power button, and return in a couple of hours to a clean pool.

    Thanks for everyone in the forums for pointing me in the right direction.

    Re: Dolphin nautilus plus

    stupid question, the unit comes with two sets of filers. one is a screen type and the other is more of a filter... which set to use for daily cleaning?

    Use the fiber filters for fine debris like dirt and the screens for larger debris.

    The Plus will likely be my next purchase WHEN my old TigerShark dies in the near future. Not sure on its age as I inherited it, but it's got to be 7+ years old. I guess in my climate that's only about 3+ years of usage though. Kinda like dog years versus human years.

    Man o man this thing makes me happy!! Cleaned the pool like a champ. Climbed the walls and cleaned up top. Tried to get on the stairs but only made I believe once or twice that I saw. Overall I am very impressed with the machine. I was a little worried it wouldn't get some of the stuff but it did great. Now the pool looks amazing. And I don't have to drag out the 30ft of hose and try to navigate the pole over the stuff at the deepend

    I got my Plus about a month ago. I like mine also, making my life a little easier. Glad you're having a good experience too.
