Great pool cleaner until it died after 2 years.
Great pool cleaner until it died after 2 years and needed repairing. After another year it died again - same fault but this time $500 to fix it. This does not represent value for money and after sales care is pitiful. Do not buy this unit.

Great pool cleaner. Will save me heaps of time.
11m x 4.5m 60,000l pool.
Before and after pics.
2 full cycles one day, 1 cycle the next , all on ultra fine filters and the pool is sparkling.
Climbed every step including the walk ledge all the way around the pool.
Really happy with X30 performance.

X30 pool cleaner
What a brilliant little machine. The first day we used the coarse filter and we were amazed at the amount of sand and debris came out that was being missed by the kreepy krawly. The old cleaner that was attached to the skimmer box needed to be cleaned twice per session which meant dismantling the skimmer basket, not so with the X30. After we added some chemicals to the water a brown muck formed on the floor which we would normally have to suck it down the drain, wasting precious water. Not so with the X30! The fine filter handled it with ease. We love it to bits!

X30 pool cleaner
We have recently purchased the X30 and are very pleased with the results. We live adjacent to a reserve and the amount of dust we get into the pool is terrible particularly when you have white pebble. From the first time we used it we were amazed that it could clean the pool so well in such a short amount of time

Great little pool cleaner
Makes cleaning the pool a breeze - just drop it in and come back a few hours later. Having the two filters also helps in getting the fine dust out of the water. The kids love it also and have nicknamed it "wall-e".

Fantastic cleaner, easy to use
We have had this cleaner for a few months now. Cleans extremely well covering the whole pool. Climbs to walls with ease and we haven’t had an issues with tangles. Collects debris from leaves to fine dust. I purchased the extra liner that’s inside the fine particle basket. Easy to lift in and out of the pool and easy to clean from the top access. Would recommend this product to anyone. You use less water because you don’t have to backwash as much due to the debris not going through the filter.
Best Pool Robot I have ever had!
Had a Demo unit supplied to us and it did everything it said it would and more ! Apart from picking up all the debris , we get a lot of dust on the bottom of the pool and the fine mesh basket picks up all of this as well. After a 2 hour clean cycle the pool is sparkling again, Happy Days. Immediately purchased our own X30 and have never looked back. Thank you Maytronics.
I should have bought this earlier
This robot does what is claimed for it - I just dropped it into my pool, which had a lot of gum leaves and green algae on the bottom, and off it went. Two and a bit hours later my pool was clean. Then I had several days of rain, dumping more gum leaves into the pool. I used the robot each day, freeing up an hour or more each day for me. It's easy to empty out the leaf basket and to dismantle and clean the filters. My pool is an above-ground plastic-liner pool, 11 metres long, 45,000 litres. The second set of filters provided are not mentioned in the instructions, and I was trying to fit them into the basket before realising that they are replacements. Very pleased so far with this cleaner.
Questions & Answers
Hi trying to decide which pool cleaner to get for a 4m x 9m pool - I’ve heard great things about dolphin x30 and dolphin m400. Can anyone help me choose please?
I have and 11m x 4.5m pool 60,000L with loads of steps. I am really happy with the X30. The basket set up with fine mesh and ultra fine mesh cartridges included works a treat. I always run it with the ultra fine filters and they work a treat. The basket and cartridge is far easier to replace than the sock type ones.
Hi VicL. The Dolphin X30 is a lightweight, robust, single drive robot. It is a wall climbing robot and has a filter basket. It comes with both filter kits, spring net and ultra-fine, of which are able to be interchanged within the filter basket as required. The Dolphin M400 is a larger, heavier, dual drive robot. It also is a wall climbing robot. This model has two filter canisters and also comes with both filter kits. A demonstration is able to be arranged to see how a robot could potentially function in your pool.

I have a X30 and am very pleased with it. My issue is that after cleaning the next day there is fine dirt at the bottom of the pool. I have not fitted the fine filter but want to ask if the fine filter is fitted in addition to or used instead of the clear mesh filter. If in addition to the existing mesh filter where does the fine filter go. Its not that obvious.
The ultra fine filter is used instead of the mesh ones. You pop the mesh panels out and replace with the ultra fine ones. You push them in towards the inside using the round black spots on the top of each panel then slide them up and out. Each panel is numbered and each side of the container also has number that you match to the panel. The two bigger panels you pop out first then the smaller side ones. When you put back in, do in reverse way, do smaller side panels first then the two bigger ones.
Thanks Bo. Seemed like the thing to do so was just checking. Could the fine particles on the bottom the next day be because they were escaping the mesh filters and is it ok to hose out the fine filters with reasonable hose pressure?
How often should the fine filters be used?
Hi Phil. The ultra-fine filters have a smaller micron size than the spring-net filters and are recommended for finer debris. The spring-net filters may capture some finer debris but may be unable to capture it all due to their larger micron size. Hosing the filters is not an issue. The frequency of use between the filter types is dependent on the needs of the pool.
Why does the cord coil on itself and then twist itself. It’s the one thing I hate about this machine.
Hi Adam. When a robot’s cable is tangling, we recommend ensuring 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. Cable maintenance is also an important step in ensuring the life of the cable. To maintain a cable and to keep it in their its most optimum condition, it is recommended to set the power supply on the deck as close to the centre of the pool as possible and to only put as much cable in the pool water as is needed to reach all corners of the pool. The remaining cable should stay neatly rolled up on deck. Once a week, disconnect the robot's blue cable from the power supply, untangle and straighten the cable from the robot upwards and lay it on the ground (in the sun if possible), for 30 minutes prior to rolling it up and when storing the cable, circle it into big loops.
