re: OT pool experts, what is the best value in robotic pool cleaners?
I used to work for a retail pool store and rebuilt/serviced all manners of pool cleaners, and the 3 wheeled Polaris was by far the most popular and the best.

if I ever get a pool - I will use a Polaris cleaner

I have the Dolphin Nautilus, too. The difference between this and the Polaris cleaners that spray you is the robotic cleaners have a finer filtration system, thus removing finer particles. Also, notice the black housing on the unit? When the Dolphin gets in a tight corner it will leave black marks. So, not only for this reason, but you should have a pool eraser for removing marks in your pool. You will still need to manually clean your spa if you have one.

re: OT pool experts, what is the best value in robotic pool cleaners?
I am in the same position. Need to buy a new pool cleaner but it's impossible to find one that everyone recommends. I thought I had found the Dolphin brand but then I read the comments on pool specified forums and reviews on a comparison website and decided to go for Polaris brand. This is probably as good a cleaner, many pool owners recommend this brand

I’ve had 2 Polaris for last 2 pools. Dolphin low voltage wire running across deck was a no go for me

Kreepy Krauler owner for about 7 years. Plugs into skimmer. Have not vacuumed a pool since the first day i bought it. No special pumps or attachments.....just plug it into the skimmer. Very little moving parts so not much to go wrong. I've replaced a couple of parts because they were worn out.

I think it was around 400 bucks

For auto pool cleaning, check out the Aquabot Classic line. I second Trouble Free Pool and the pool calculator.

re: OT pool experts, what is the best value in robotic pool cleaners?
Nothing beats a Dolphin in terms of efficiency and ease of use. We had a Dolphin Nautilus Plus and now we have upgraded to a Dolphin S200 (newer model). Hands down, it'll be the best investment you ever made for your pool. Be sure to get a TOP loading Dolphin, I prefer one with the basket cartridge (like the S200). So easy to rinse and drop back in the pool. We usually keep the fine filters on and it literally picks up dirt off the bottom. Best thing about it is that it can clean your pool at ANY time, regardless of if your pump is running or not. Dolphin also has the best warranty out there (3 years).

Aquabot cleaned up the thick layer of ash in our pool (in CA) after at least three wildfires. Did the job pretty cleanly and quickly each time, which I considered quite impressive.

re: OT pool experts, what is the best value in robotic pool cleaners?
Our Polaris 2 wheel (I think it’s the 250) that came with the pool when we bought is about on its last leg as I’m having to fix or swap out something every few months.

Looking at the Dolphin S200. Seems much more efficient (lower electric bill) to power it directly instead of running a second pump like we do for the Polaris.

How is the S200 different than the Nautilus CC (reg not plus)?

Timely bump.

I have a dolphin I used for my saltwater pool for about 2 years. We sold the house and moved, but I kept it, because it was such a great pool cleaner, thinking I may get a pool again someday and I wanted to keep it. I’d be willing to sell it if you are interested. 3373040333
