    Dolphin Advantage Plus Or S200/Doheny Discovery

    So thanks to all the threads here I have narrowed my choices down to these 2. (I hope it's ok to post links to vendor sites here??)

    The "New and Improved Dolphin Advantage Plus":
    Doheny's Product Page - Advantage

    and the Discovery:
    Doheny's Product Page - Discovery/S200

    Is one a clear Superior cleaner?

    They are very close in price(Advantage:$869 vs Discovery:$799 (But I think you can get cheaper($730) with coupon))

    The Advantage comes with a caddy and a remote. Also the Advantage is bottom access bags

    The Discovery has the nice top access cartridge and 2 filter options, but no caddy and no remote (I will be purchasing the caddy as an option)

    The Advantage has a higher GPM, but does that make difference?

    Does one "Map" and clean your pool better, or do they both use the same patterning logic?

    Thanks for any opinions

    The difference between the bottom-loading bag filter and top basket is night-and-day (in favor of the basket). This is a case where the Advantage has a major disadvantage.

    There is no excuse for Dolphin to have introduced such a massive innovataion and then continue to sell bag-filter models. Bottom-line, the idea of robots is to make life easier. You cannot get any easier than a top-load basket.

    The remote is a gimmick. There's next to no need for it.
