Free at last

The Dolphin S 200 is a fast and well designed cleaning unit, have used it twice running 4 hrs and the pool never looked so clean, quite and easy to set up and remove and clean out the dirt and leaves. Show details ·  1

This product will free up so much more time

I purchased a new place a year ago with a pool. For the last year I've been spending at least 6 hours per week manually cleaning a pool. I recently bought this automatic pool cleaner and I'm telling you it's life changing. I spend all up 5 minutes each time I need to clean the dolphin. I drop it in the pool for 3 hours and run it on solar. My pool has never looked so clean! Do yourself a favour and buy one. The investment pays for itself in all the time and effort you gain back. Show details ·  1

Great product

I bought this with hesitancy a free receiving conflicting advice, it seems everyone has a strong opinion about what pool cleaner to buy. I wanted something that was low maintenance and that I didn’t have to leave in the pool. After a particularly bad storm the pool was a mess. I but the bullet and ordered the S200 as it seemed to fit my needs well. Dropped it in the pool, pressed on after half reading the quick start guide. Two hours later the pool was blue and sparkling. I was very impressed by it. So far has been excellent. Show details ·  1

Best decision I’ve made in 35 years

Maytronics Dolphin S200
Best decision I’ve made after owning pools for 35 years was to replace all of those Barracuda, Krreepy Krawly , Aldi ( and a few other brands I have been though ) with a Maytronics Dolphin S200. There is now no massive suction hose to get in the way or fall apart .
The amount of rubbish found after each cleaning cycle shows you just how much unnecessary extra load is put on your filtration system.
You can clean your pool quickly and efficiently at any time and in any weather . Show details ·  1

Expensive repairs

S200 worked great for 2yrs and 9 months then stopped working. Needed new motor unit due to moisture in the box corroding the unit. This is an underwater robot that got moisture in a sealed unit. As it has a 2 yr warranty it was not covered, so my $1890 underwater robot needed a $574 repair due to moisture ingress to a sealed unit.
Not impressed that this issue is not covered as it is not a mechanical part or user error that caused the failure. Show details

Best money I have ever spent

I absolutely love my pool cleaner. I started my robot pool journey with the x20 then after 5 years or so I bought the x25. Now again 5 years later I have just purchased the s200. If I didn't have a robot pool cleaner, I wouldn't have a pool. Look after your pool & your equipment & it will reward your effort in quality family swim time. These dolphin cleaners are superb in every way. Show reply

Pool looks great, but when I lift the s200, the collected debris falls back into pool

Apparently 50% of the time, the collected filth falls through the collection basket and back into my pool as I retrieve the S200 from the pool. Otherwise the unit is good.  Show details ·  1

Awesome!

My fiberglass pool is 20 years old and I bought my Dolphin S200, 2 years ago. I should have bought one when I build the pool from the start. I waisted so much money with the cheap pool cleaners. I never looked back since I have a decent and reliable pool cleaner you can trust to do the job 100% and save you many hours.

Efficient, but some problems

I have owned my Dolphin S200 for just over a year. It works really well, and is very efficient, leaving the pool beautifully clean, but more recently has been getting stuck on the step at the edge of the pool. I contacted the manufacturer, and they were very efficient in getting it checked (while it was still just in warranty), but could not find any fault. Unfortunately the problem persists - not as frequently as before - but I am worried that if it does recur, I will end up with a white elephant, rather than a dolphin.

Got my life back!

Tired of constantly vacuuming to waste to remove sand and fine dust and it hasn't missed a beat for three years - but this week it just stopped .... missing it clean while we are sleeping! Why has it stopped? Show details ·  1

Ok when it works

I've owned this unit for approximately 3 yrs now. Robot worked great for the first couple of months then I had constant issues since. Cleaner does a great job when I decides to work but it's so tempremental.

I've had the control box replaced, the cable replaced. Constantly cleaning it out waiting for it to work.

After a hot day I have to screw of the electrical pin connector, then blow it out for it to work again. Sad thing is today I did just that and it hasn't helped which brings me here looking for another robot.  Show details

Doesn't work- Gets Stuck!

Got this product as part of a package with my pool, despite the website claiming the cleaner wont get stuck it does.
Not impressed with the product or the service.
The solution from Maytronics was to downgrade my unit so it would ONLY work on the floor, this would mean I have paid $2000 for a unit that is the equivalent of the DB1 which retails for $1150.00
I am now awaiting a refund... Show details

Good addition to my pool

Happy with the product. Doesn't go on the small steps but that's not a issue for me and it works better when I roll up the cover. Sucks in leaves and dirt and takes a job out of me. One of the screws has some rust on it after just a couple of months and that is my only concern. Show details

Hopeless at gum leaf collection

My pool is typical of thousands of Australian pools where it collects gum tree leaves from a backyard native eucalyptus tree.
The Dolphin 200 has a thin long opening that the leaves are sucked up through into the basket. But the leaves get stuck in the opening and clog it up. The basket can be virtually empty but the opening is clogged. It might work if it was travelling over one leaf at a time but if there are a few or a pile then that’s when they clog up the entry point and that’s the end of the leaf collection.
It does a good job of climbing walls to clean and the collection basket has fine filter sides that helps collect dirt particles off the floor and walls.
But I wouldn’t buy it if you have gum leaves or other largish leaves. Show details

Replaced the old robot with this one

I bought this robot to replace the one that came with the house. That one was ok, good for picking up leaves and sticks but, as it only had a mesh basket, you could see the plume of fine dust it would stir up but not collect. What I love about the S200 is the fact that it filters the water, collecting all the dust that the old robot could not. Plus it brushes at floors and walls, which the other one did not. It also scrubs the waterline. The fine grit and pollen collected in the washable and replaceable filters has to be seen to be believed. Very happy. I looked at the next model up, the version with blue tooth, but the app didn’t get good reviews. Show details ·  3

Great cleaner

We have a large pool with lots of overhanging trees and leaves. The S200 was recommended because of the large inlet for sucking the leaves up. We had some initial frustration with the filter basket repeatedly getting clogged with debris and stopping the machine but since we changed over to the alternative (supplied) filter basket with the larger pores it has worked perfectly.

Amazing Robotic Cleaner!

I’ve been using the traditional crawler and have been getting frustrated as it keeps getting stuck in corners and is dependant on the pressure of the pump. I’ve had enough and decided to purchase the Dolphin S200 after doing some research on Product Review. What an amazing product! It was easy to setup and now the pool is sparkling clean! Thank you! Show details ·  1

How to make your pool Sparkle - own a Dolphin

I'm a first time owner of a Robotic pool cleaner. Researched a variety of options from basic to premium cleaners. Ended up purchasing a Dolphin S200 and very glad i did. It's an amazing piece of set, start and forget technology. Our pool is finally starting to sparkle again in a good way! Great to have a Dolphin swimming in my pool! Show details ·  1

Works a treat

I wasn't totally convinced of the ease of use and efficiency of my Maytronics Dolphin S200 until I tested it for a week. Now I wonder why I waited so long before buying one. Leaves and dirt on the bottom of the pool are all picked up and even the sides are cleaned by this wall - climbing champion. The Dolphin S200 is easy to set up and very easy to clean and is very sturdy in construction. Show details ·  1

Absolute great Robotic Pool Cleaner ever made, collects sludge and leaves live a vacuum cleaner

This Dolphin S200 Robotic Pool Cleaner was sold to me by Melton Pool Shop. And it was the best price in Victoria, along with a great product that lives up to its video display. It actually collects all that sludge at bottom of pool and rotting leaves at also bottom of pool. Show details ·  1

Just keeps getting better

Have had a Dolphin for years with no problems but decided to get a new S200. It is so much lighter and so much easier to clean the basket than the individual cartridges. Also like the programming feature where you can set it to come on at pre-defined times during the week. Show details ·  1
