" ...   I purchased this product since I have been a fan of Dolphin Robotic cleaner since around 2008. ... I kept filter clean, but it would just stop after moving for a few seconds.  ...  "

" ...  I wanted a clean pool and it delivers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We have run it 3 or 4 times now (had it a week) and the bottom of the pool is nice and clean.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This guys cleans it all. ... We have been longtime owners of an older model dolphin cleaner which lasted nearly 5 years. ... This cleaner spends a lot more time in the tile line and the jets on the side help blow off areas around the tile area he’s working on.  ...  "

" ...  It's way too easy to clean.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Results are very good but I had similsr results with my previous cleaner which was much less expensive than the Triton.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I checked the filter basket, impeller and tracks - all were OK so I started the cleaner again. ... It works like a dream, no issues at all except the terrible realisation that it is picking up a lot of dirt that I can't even see!  ...  "
comment
" ...  - Well thought-out filter basket design, super easy to clean and remove panels. ... Within two hours the pool bottom and sides were super clean. ... Had to empty/clean the basket six times over that period. ... Pretty nasty but cleaned right up. ... Can't even find simple information like which filter is for fine debris and which is for coarse (the unit comes with both sets). ... You have to open the bottom of the basket and use powerful jet spray on the inside. ... But it cleans up pretty quickly. ... All in all, I'm super happy with this cleaner after a day of heavy usage.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Works like a charm after several days of hardwork for the opening of the pool. ... This is good value for our 25000 gallons pool. ... We have less work to do more time to enjoy the pool.  ...  "
comment
" ...  More importantly, it's stirring up the scum so the pool filter can do some work cleaning the water. ... Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and have run it about eight times in the last couple days trying to get my pool ready for summer.  ...  "

" ...  The cord never gets tangled and is plenty long enough for a 38x26x18 size pool and being 7foot on the deep end.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I can also confirm that this unit is shipping with the anti-tangle swivel cable again, which does seem to work.  ...  "
comment
" ...  - Cord design seems well planned, so far no tangles and I love the way it plugs into the power unit.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It also didn’t have the swivel cord which from last experience with cleaners is a must have. ... It may be a great cleaner but for almost $1000, I expect a new unit, the swivel cord and definitely one that fully functions.  ...  "
comment
" ...  We decided on this one because of the swivel cord.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The cord does tend to get a little twist in it after a couple uses but it is easy to unwind and we’ve found that if you limit his cable to just what he needs this is a minimal occurrence.  ...  "
