    Dolphin Triton, Premier or Nautilus owner, please chime in...

    Our 2 yr old Dolphin Triton by Maytronics leaved behind nasty black marks whenever the black plastic housing hit or rub against the wall or steps. My thought from last year is black algae but we now have new white plaster and yet, black stains are re-appearing….Great! Upon closer observation, I then realized they were caused by our robotic cleaner. Specifically, the side that’s missing the rubber bumper. Nylon brush dindu nuffin but scrubbing with dish washing scouring pad worked for me. Can’t wait for summer to clean them all up.

    Not sure if installing another set of rubber bumper (if available) would help. My search yields nothing and wondering if other Dolphin Triton, Premier or Nautilus owner is experiencing the same. And how or what would you do to address the issue?

    Call Maytronics and see about buying new bumpers. Easy fix I imagine.

    Thank you Maddie.
    First I thought my Triton lost the bumpers on one side of the panel. But the below Triton parts diagram indicates only one side panel has the bumpers and they are not sold separately. Not sure if the side panels are interchangeable but I will call Maytronics and go from there.

    I really don't want to admit there's only me! Perhaps your pool surface is darker making the stain less visible but thank you for chiming in.
    I love my Triton, it does a very good job each time without complaining. But for reasons beyond aesthetic, Maytronics picked black color for the side panels
