    Dolphin M5 vs Dolphin Oasis Z5

    Still really like mine as well. Only need to run it 3-4 times per week depending on how much wind we have. Didn't think I'd care for the remote but it is nice to use to "drive" the robot to small sections that may have been missed.

    Dolphin M5 vs Dolphin Oasis Z5

    I love mine so far. Since I don't have a lot of leaves right now, I only have to run it approx. 3 time a week. The real test will be in the fall. Good luck and let us know how you like it.

    Dolphin M5 vs Dolphin Oasis Z5

    I also bought the Z5 from Epic but before I did, I sent an email to Maytronics and they replied stating they would honor the warranty. Only issue I could see in their response was that I would have to ship it to a repair center.

    How to add salt to the pool - "Bucket" method.

    I just pour a whole 40 lb bag in a 5 gallon bucket, put it on a step that allows the top of the bucket to be lower than the water level, stick in a garden hose and turn it on. Takes about 5 mins to dissolve it all. Except for rain, the only time I need to add salt, I also need to add water, so...

    Going with the Oasis Z5

    Mine Z5 arrived last week and has been wonderful so far. I've only run it 3 times with yesterday being the first full cycle. It ran for about 2-1/2 hours. Picks up all king of debris and hasn't had any problems with any of the leaves (not very many at this time of year for me). If it lasts 3-5...

    New Circupool si45+ install

    Added acid the past 2 days plus aerated using my spa blower and TA is down to 80 so far. I plan to drop it a little more since I will be adding borax next week. PH is still low at 7.2 but with the SWG and blower it should come back to normal tomorrow. I re-checked the CH and it is at 600-625...

    New Circupool si45+ install

    Thanks for the advise. I'll use pool math the bring down the ph with acid and then aerate to bring the ph back up.

    Online sales warranty?

    I had the same issue but then heard of a new Maytronics cleaner from this link [URL="http://www.troublefreepool.com/threads/71513-Where-to-buy-Dolphin-Supreme-M4"]. I called Epic and they did say that Maytronics honored the warranty which I confirmed with Maytronics. Haven't pulled the trigger...
