    Yep. I've been wanting to decouple cleaning from my pumps for over a year now. I'll be able to scale back my pump run speeds quite a bit now.

    Yeah, I'm sure "Dori" would be a popular vote in our house "just keep swimming" and "where's Dori?" As supporting arguments

    Hey, in my defense, the EasyTouch remote still works and works better than my suction cleaner does....

    I'm a newbie, please excuse my question. Does this stay in the water all the time or does it need to go in each day and pulled out when done ?

    It can be left in the pool but it is not advised in terms of longevity. The cleaner will last longer if it is removed and hosed off after use. You have to pull it out to clean out the filter basket and so it best to just take it in and out. The controller has a feature where you can leave it in the pool and have the unit run every day, every other day or every third day. So if you were going to be on vacation you could dump it in the pool and go.

    Re: So this just happened....

    Matt,

    When one of mine dies, that is going to be my next Dolphin purchase.. I'm jealous!!

    As far as taking it in and out of your pool goes, when you take it out, I suggest you not wrap the cable up on a caddie..

    My theory is that coiling the cable on the caddie and letting it sit for a few days causes the cable to become less flexible and increases the likelihood the cable will tangle.

    I lay my cable on the deck with a couple of very large loops..

    I think you will love it, no matter what your family names it.
