    Top-End and Bottom-End Cleaner Experiences: Dolphin Triton PS and Mainstays (Walmart) Automatic Swimming Pool Cleaner

    Hi, Jim! Full agreement on all points. I do not claim to be making general points, but this was how it worked out for me. More information out there should always be better than less. :-) All the best to you!

    Help me to choose between Nautilus CC Plus vs Triton PS Pool cleaner

    I have a Dolphin Triton PS and it's been very unreliable. Been in the shop more than once a year until warranty ran out.

Is there some type of fitting that can be wedged or tapped into the inside...

    SLAM taking a lot of time and chlorine

    Awesome, thank you! Will look for algae in niches, and go to more frequent addition of chlorine and post experience.

    SLAM taking a lot of time and chlorine

    Thank you, @mknauss, for your kind message. I am familiar with both sources that you link and I added a signature. So the timing seems OK, then. Does it also correspond to other people's experience that the pool is still "eating" so much chlorine after five days? I'm still having to put in...

    SLAM taking a lot of time and chlorine

    Hi, all! I have done SLAMs before, but this one seems to be slower than usual. I was gone for a bit and pool-care arrangements did not work out so well (let's say), so coming back there was a fair amount of algae growth on the walls, but water was still clear. I measured the chlorine with the...
