What To Look For When Buying A Dolphin Robotic Pool Cleaner
16 February, 2021
Choosing the best pool cleaner may seem a daunting task, but it does not have to be.
First things first – what is your pool surface? Every pool surface has a different recommended brush type.
WB – Wonder Brush – used for smooth surfaces like tiles, fibreglass & smooth glass beads.
CB – Combined Brush – a combination of PVC and Wonder brush rings used for rough pebbles and quartz rendered pools.
All-terrain Tracks and Brushes – used for all pool surfaces.
This is important because every pool cleaner has a fixed cable length and depending on the pool size you may require a cleaner with an extended cable. If your cleaner does not it will not be able to reach all the corners and edges from the power supply – which needs to be a certain distance from the pool edge.
To find the best robot for your pool size, you can use the handy interactive which model tool!
Different robots are designed to clean for different purposes. Some clean only the floor of your pool, while others clean floors and walls, or some can do it all and cover the floors, walls, and waterline. Naturally, the more features and benefits the cleaner involves the more expensive therefore it is important for you to understand your wants, to get the most functionality from your budget.
The more you understand about your pool and the problem areas the better you will understand what you need the cleaner to be able to do the most.
What type of environment do you live in? Do you have mostly trees around causing debris to be mostly larger and leaves foliage compared to minor dust settlement? Or maybe you have both? A dual filter cartridge is an ultimate requirement if you have a pool that collects a lot of both larger debris and fine dust.
Key tip: The smaller the micron value, the smaller the debris a robot cleaner’s filter can clean out from your pool water.
We also have a very handy comparison chart on our website which will compare all the key features of the robots across the M, S, and X series! To view the chart, click here.
