Dolphin M3 pool cleaner
My Dolphin M3 pool cleaner works a treat, It is approx. 4 years old and gets used at least 3 times a week. It has had a couple of minor issues, however it is something that works in a salt water environment. Each time I have had an issue, I contacted Maytronics customer care team with great success. The ladies I have spoken with have been more than helpful. They put me in touch with Brookwater pool and spa for assistance. Warren (the owner there) was extremely polite and helpful, even though I just dropped in. I am not a regular customer there, however he helped me out instantly. I can highly recommend both Maytronics customer care team and Brookwater pool and spa and my Dolphin M3!!

not worth the investment of $3000.-
sadly for the price of $3000.- + and only used sparingly due to having the use of a pool man coming monthly to have the battery give up? Its to early to buy a product with batteries that give a short warranty 2 years. to replace the battery is about $1000.- one could buy lots of non battery powered cleaners for that. sadly it's not worth to fix and is worth nothing as is.think twice before buying
Can't live without it!
This cleaner usually totally cleans the pool in a single (3 hour) cycle unless the pool is filled with leaf litter. It has never been stuck in the corners and rarely on the steps. Despite the specs it gets a fair way up the walls. It is advisable to hose/clean the filters after each use and this really is the only maintenance needed apart from servicing every 12-18 months. I wanted a pool cleaner that left the filter free to do it's own job and am extraordinarily happy with the performance of this machine. Would buy another.
"Dolly" is a wonderful addition to our pool. Easy to use & clean and keeps the pool as pristine as heck.
Lots of leaves can cause a few problems but this happens very rarely.
A good addition would be a hook to lift the cleaner out of the pool and not have to use the power cable
Great Pool cleaner
We have the pleasure of owning a robotic pool cleaner for under $1000.
Easy to use Easy to clean and very efficient pool cleaner with a 2 year warranty.
It just keeps on going. Washing the filter bag under the hose is like washing a pair of Old mans undies but get over it - it's worth it for a brilliant clean pool.
No Drama No hassle.
We have what we call "Resort Ducks" come to visit and poop everywhere including the pool.
Our machine cleans our pool of all their mess and more.
Questions & Answers
Hi i have recently bought a supreme M3/M200 second hand when i put it in the pool it seems to do 1 complete clean on the floor from left to right from its starting point then it stays on the wall cleaning the cove and just the edge of the pool. It will not return to the pool floor. i have plenty of cord and as previous advice i have done a manual scrub of the pool. Is there a memory in these cleaners or a way to reset it?.
Hi Pete. Maytronics robots are designed to maintain a clean pool. General pool maintenance is still required for a pool to remain in its most optimum condition. When a robot is missing parts of a pool, it is recommended to ensure that the robot enough slack in the cable to reach the entire pool. It is also recommended to try starting the cycle at a different location as the Dolphin’s scanning pattern will take it in a different path every time. The filter cartridges may be dirty or clogged and if so, may affect the robot’s ability to manoeuvre. Filter cartridges are able to be soaked in cartridge cleaner or a mild dishwashing detergent and warm water to assist in the removal of in-grained debris. Water chemistry levels and pH levels that are out of recommended range can prohibit the unit from climbing as the pool surface. This is due to the surface becoming slippery and thus, rendering the robot unable to gain the grip / traction required to move freely around the pool. We recommend a full water test and the pool balanced, where required. Following this, a manual brush down of the surfaces to ensure any slipperiness has been attended to. Please do not hesitate to contact us our Customer Care Team at firstname.lastname@example.org for any further assistance.
Hi, I need to use my manual cleaner while my cleaner gets fixed. It is not sucking up anything, not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks
I can't help I am useless at those things but the part has to be inserted properly into the skimmer basket & it does not help if the pool water level is low. Also make sure is well attached to the sucky up part. Look for any breaks/leaks in the hose too
Hi Liz. Traditionally, manual cleaners and/or suction cleaners vacuum to waste and in many cases do so as the hose is connected via the skimmer box. We hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Care Team via email to email@example.com or on 1300 693 657 option 2 for any further information.
Hi I have just bought a dolphin M3 cleaner and I put it in the water and it cleaned some of my pool it missed and fair bit and it made my water cloudy
If there is a lot of dust, dirt & your marblelite pool is delaminating it just goes thru the light filters. Use the heavy filters, clean them after each cycle & eventually it picks everything up. I find mine takes 2 cycles to fully clean the pool
Hi Sarah. When a robot is missing parts of a pool, it is recommend to ensure that there is enough slack in the cable to reach the the furthest point of pool. It is also recommended to try starting the cycle at a different location as the Dolphin’s scanning pattern will take it in a different path every time. We also recommend a full water test for all chemistry levels to be checked and the pool balanced as required. There may also be build up present on the surfaces of the missed areas that may also be preventing the Dolphin from being able to efficiently clean them. For this, brush the surfaces down manually and the unit should then be able to maintain them on its own. The ultra-fine filters, of which appears as small folds, is best suited for finer debris such as dust. Swap to these filters and see as to whether this improves the robot's filtering ability.
