My next-door neighbor has a vinyl pool and wants a robot.. I told him to look at the Dolphin S200/300 series units, but my pool is gunite and I am now having second thoughts.

Anyone out there currently using a Dolphin to clean their vinyl pools.. He is worried about the robot not climbing up the wall.

I was curious about the same thing for a customer of mine, the maytronics rep said it would be no problem

Jim the robots propelle themselves up the wall, along with some suction. That’s how they’re able to breach the water surface to clean the waterline.
