    Dirty Robot/Vacuum Thread

    We have had some fairly high wind days here lately and my M500 is paying the price! I pulled it out this morning after the 1st pass and I got this. I thought I would start a thread to see how bad some of these poor things are abused! :oops: I didn't get a pic of the skimmer basket but it was...

    Dolphin M500 Filter Replacement?

    Anyone know about how long the "ultra fine" filters last for them? I have had the M500 since late April or so. I've been using the ultra fine paper filters pretty much since the 1st week. The robot cleans everyday. I rinse them out everyday. I have started to notice the filters aren't quite...

    Skimmer isn't skimming

    So earlier this week I noticed that the skimmer was really sucking water in loudly. It seemed to have been solved by just touching the weir door and then it sort of lifted up and was skimming fine so I walked away. Yesterday I got home early from work and noticed that the pool surface hadn't...

    Water flow at skimmer?

    I posted in another thread about me buying an M500 and giving up on the Rebel. In doing that I figured I could adjust the suction to focus more on the skimmer since I don't really need the suction port on the side anymore. I, perhaps naively, thought that I could just open the valve to pretty...

    Anyone know best place to sell my Pentair Rebel?

    I just bought a Dolphin M500 because I just wasn't that impressed with the Rebel from the start. I started realizing that my Rebel was always in the deep end of the pool. I would lift it out and place it into the shallow end, it would spend about 2 minutes there before it was back in the deep...

    Low CSI but I think numbers for tests look reasonable

    This is my first post so I apologize for any misses on protocol for asking for help. I just had a pool installed and handed over to me in late December in the San Diego area. It's a ~25k gallon SWG fed pool. It's been chilly here for a while and a rather wet "winter" for this area. I have...
