So, I have SLAM'd the pool and the water is crystal clear. The bottom of the pool, however, is dirty with stuff that has settled over the winter. I was wondering if I should brush this and rely on the filter to clean it out over time or if I could put the robot in to take care of it? Will it be too much for for the robot? I have the Dolphin Nautilus. Just wondering what the best plan of attack will be to clean it the rest of the way. Thanks in advance and God bless! :cool:

If the water is above 50 degrees you can use the robot. However you will likely need to take it out, clean the debris out of the robot, and put it back in at least once before it finishes it's standard cycle.

Impossible to answer not knowing exactly how much debris you have. If you have doubts, then you will likely be asking too much of the robot. Better to remove what you can manually and then let the robot finish.
