    does anyone have any experience with the Maytronics dolphin active 15?

    Curious about those one too. Marina recommended the Active 20, but it seems like overkill. My Aquabot 4WD is still running, hoping Dolphin is as reliable. I only need 40' cord, would like the swivel of the A20, but one heard a lot of bad things about swivel issues. The A15 comes with the...

    Dolphin E10 vs Dolphin Active 15...need some advice

    I'm curious about the Dolphin pleated ultra fine filters. Are they difficult to hose off? I had returned an Aquabot because the filter was cloth like rather than mesh like. It was very hard to get clean because fine needles and burrs would stick to it. You had to pull stuff off by hand. I...

    Dolphin DX3 vs CC

    The specs say the DX3 is much larger, yet they weigh the same, and take the same filter. Is the brush also wider on the DX3, or are they basically the same? Why so many similar models? 😵‍💫. I don't care so much about walls or long cord, just want reliability and easy clean filter.

    Yes, but have standard and fast mode. Fast mode barely got much of my pool. It thought it was finished after 75 minutes. My kidney shape and large radii drove it nuts (literally 🤣).

    Hard to tell the difference. There is a sticker on each S and U.

    Instapark Betta review

    Guess I should have taken it apart farther. They only told me to take the prop off and spray WD40. Mine wasn't seized, just harder to turn than the other one. I figured why not let them fix it so they are right. Now I regret sending it on and not doing what you did! 2 weeks without it is a...

    Does your pool have a slope? At 12# and decent reviews, might be worth a try!

    You might run OCLT to make sure you don't have algae. Should pick up that stuff.

    Mine good at very fine dust. Make sure the filter is between the 2 ribs. Might make sure the fan is sending lots of water out the top.

    I agree, no cable is the only way to go. May try the X11 some point in the future. My Aquabot still does the corded job in the meantime.

    Smorobot X10 review

    After 2 or 3 runs with the replacement, decided to return it to Amazon. Just doesn't like the large radii in my pool. Kept going over the same areas, barely any time in shallow end, and flipped over today and after that has the lights on with power switch off issue. Sure wish they'd work out...

    My heat pump is set at 86, but hasn't run in a month or so, but pool never goes above that. Anything warmer is not refreshing! Yeah my wife would prefer 88, but once in for 2 minutes she's fine.

    Yep, PITA, but provide great shade keeping our water below 86 with 2 months of 100+ degree days. Robot and Betta2 help, but 3 or 4 months a year the old net comes in handy.

    Instapark Betta review

    My B2 started getting noisy. Left motor sounds like bad bearings. Right rotates freely, left "clicks" as you manually rotate it. Sent it back yesterday for repair. Service is great, prepaid return label, they claim 7-10 days. Didn't realize how many bugs it picks up each night looking at the...
