    DIY Pool Caddy

    Just bought a new Active 20 from Marina Pool and Spa and decided to build my own caddy versus paying $150+ My analysis... 1) Don't need wheels and the $150 Dolphin's caddy's wheels are not that robust anyways 2) Don't want to leave power supply outside based on how many posts I've read...

    Maytronics drive motor 5521259-1 disassembly and repair

    Hi everyone, I have a Prowler 920, which uses the Maytronics drive motor 5521259-1. It is not working, and I've narrowed it down to the drive motor; it spins freely, gets stuck and becomes very hard to turn. I've seen a helpful video on how to get to the impeller bearings, but how on earth do...

    Dolphin pool cleaner issues (Active 30i)

    I'm wondering if anyone else has experience issues with a Dolphin Active 30i or similar pool cleaner. Issue 1: Sometime, more often than not, the cleaner does not run the full cycle. Sometimes it will run 30 minutes, sometimes an hour and then it just stops. The controller is still on like...

    Dolphin s200 motor dead after just 2 years

    Hi TFP community! My Dolphin died the day after its 2 year warranty expired. Well, it was more like 2 months later, but still, I was expecting a longer life span than 26 months having paid $1600 CAD for it. Took it back to the store who’s technician confirmed the motor was fried. The store then...

    New Dolphin Explorer E30 - issues

    So, I got a new E30 a few months ago, and starting to use it. Having some issues. It has ran a full cycle mabye once or twice I think. Normally, I start it and it runs backwards for a few seconds, turns on the vacuum pump, goes forward a second, then stops. Sometimes it resets itself and...

    Polaris vs. Dolphin

    Hello All! I need some help. I've never owned a robot cleaner and I'm looking to buy one for my 16x32 in-ground rectangular pool with a vinyl liner. I've done some searching and it looks like the reviews are all over the place on which models are recommended. I like the idea of being able...

    Dolphin CC Plus value compared to the Premier

    TFP community. After years of manually cleaning my pool, I've decided to invest in a robot to save time. I have a 20k gallon salt water pool that is 36x20. I pulled the trigger on a dolphin CC plus for $810 (linked below); however, after I ordered it, I did some more research, and am now...

    Considering Robotic Pool Cleaner - Thoughts on Quantum?

    Hi all. Considering an automatic vacuum and looking for robot recommendations. Pool is approx. 16K gal and rectangular in shape with a Baja deck. I recognize most robots won't hit the deck. The pool guy hardly stops by anymore, but that has been fine since installing the chlorinator. I am...

    Robot recommendation for pool type

    I have a 33k gallon gunite pool with a 10" concrete coping (see profile pic). There are also a few ledges in the pool. I'd like the best robot that can handle the walls (in addition to floors) and wondering if there are any that will handle the lip on my coping to get to the waterline. Anyone...

    Recommendations or reviews for a booster pump?

    I'm in the market for a new booster pump; I'm seen mixed reviews for both the Pentair (LA-MS05) and Polaris (PB4SQ) Quiet is nice, but is the longevity as bad as it seems? (had my PB4-60 for 25 yr, just replaced seal a few times) I'll also consider the electric/robot IF the recommendation...

    Dolphin Active 20 Cable Disintegrating

    I have an Active 20 that I have left in the pool 24/7 for 2+ years. I am about to do a little tune up as the bottom rubber strips are looking a bit rough, but otherwise it's held up quite well. I have also noticed the power cable/cord is disintegrating a bit. I am seeing little blue chunks in...

    For Sale -- Dolphin S300i -- Blown Motor

    Worked fine until it didn't. Stopped moving, took it in for repair, was told that it needs a new motor. Bought a new Dolphin and am putting this one up for sale -- you can either replace the motor or you can use it for parts. It's about 4-years old. It was well taken care of and I have no idea...

    Robot during SLAM

    There's been a bit of a heat wave in southern Ontario and my pool got away from me. Noticed some green sediment on the bottom. About to start a slam, but the dolphin has been sitting in there for a couple days. I see lots of threads about whether it's helpful to run the robot, but that not my...

    Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus very noisy…

    Hey guys, recently bought a Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus, and it worked fine for a month, but this past weekend, I noticed when it’s cleaning the waterline, it makes a very loud noise almost like something is grinding or rubbing on something. I do not remember if this was happening from the...

    Dolphin M200 Leaves Piles of Dirt

    I purchased a dolphin M200 with my pool. I know it is designed for inground pools, but my sales person said it would be fine for my above ground pool. So I ran it the other night for two hours, and when it was done the filters did not have much in them. And there was piles of sand on the bottom...

    Dolphin DX5-S Motor Impeller Makes High Pitch Computer-Like Frequency Noise, Impeller turns for about 1 second and then stops.

    I have a Dolphin DX5-S that would start and work awhile and then shut off, though now it doesn't move. I have gone through and tested all electrical and everything is spot on all the way to the motor assembly. After taking apart there is no water damage inside the motor compartment, cleaned...

    Best robot for large pool.

    We have an L shaped pool that is about 38 x 28. The deep end is 8 feet and it’s closest to the outlet, but a standard 50 foot cord won’t get my whole pool clean. The Polaris 9650 IQ has a 70 foot cord, but even that might not give me the coverage I want. Not sure if the extra 10 feet of cord is...

    Upgrade from Aquabot Supreme

    I have an Aquabot Supreme that is probably at least 5 years old by now. Have never had any problems with it, and only ever replaced the power supply. Just wondering if the newer models from Maytronics are worth the upgrade. I feel like my bot gets stuck in my deep-end a lot. I have an 18x38...

    No Ionization

    One thing I've learned quickly is that ionization is not the popular opinion! And after reading.... I understand. BUT, when I purchased my package with my pool, my installer was suggesting the ionizer system and he would provide for me. He helped me place my order. Now if I'd like to change...

    Dolphin Triton PS Plus picking up leaves

    I have had this unit about 10 months and been very happy with it. Previous cleaner Polaris 280. My pool is under 2 oak trees so this year I covered the pool to keep the leaves out and ran the Dolphin every day each week to keep it scrubbed. The problem is it now only picks up enough leaves to...

    Dolphin s300i Servo Overload

    I bought my Dolphins two years ago and have used it less than 100x. For the last two weekends in a row, it has run for around 45-1hr and then stopped. I unplug it, start it back up and it runs for 5-10 mins then stops. The Control module stays lit up. I can also remote control it using my phone...

    Need advice on above ground robotic cleaner. Aquabot or dolphin?

    I am looking to buy a robotic cleaner for my 27' above ground pool. I think I have narrowed it down to the AQUABOT BREEZE SE with scrubber and the DOLPHIN E10. I haven't seen a direct comparison between the two regarding pros/cons, longevity, reliability and general effectiveness. If anyone has...

    Dolphin Active 30 cleaning problems

    New Pool Owner and Active 30 owner here. After powerwashing the cement around the pool, the pool was quite dirty. I had the Dolphin run about 3 or 4 cycles (with the filter ending up with a small amount of sand in it after every cleaning) and the pool still looked like the below with dirt along...

    Demo in CA Bay Area? Is there really any difference?

    I was hoping to find a robotic cleaner to demo for a day before spending $1,000 + on one. I can't believe how hard it is to find a dealer in the east bay area that has a demo, its not like I'm in the middle of nowhere... The Dolphin "Elite Dealer" I talked to today doesn't even stock any of...

    Maytronics Dolphin z5 power supply fell into pool!

    I'm new to pool care and completely blew it. I threw the dolphin cleaner in the pool and didn't untangle the cord. The robot pulled the caddy in with the power supply and cord attached. I dried it out for a couple days then tried to fire it up. Its blue power light flashed a few times then...

    I have a Maytronics Dolphin 2002 Dynamic pool cleaner. The robot cleaner works great, but it pulled the caddy and power supply into the pool. I pulled it out and dried it several days then plugged it in. Sometimes I get a quick flashing blue light, but it won't stay lit and won't power the...
