    Excellent Cleaner

    I have been using the Dolphin Nautilus for about 2 months now and so far been completely satisfied. This cleaner comes with 2 different types of removable screens that trap the dirt from the pool. One is for heavy leaf and debris pick up while the other is more for finer particulates. They are very easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. I actually prefer this type as opposed to the "bag" type I had been accustomed to using. The power cord is a little longer than other robotic cleaners I have used and seems to not twist up in knots. The cleaner completely removes dirt from my pool (20' X 40'inground) in about 2 hours. Rarely it might miss a small leaf or two but for the most part does an excellent job. It will also climb the walls preventing any dirt or algae buildup. The pump that makes the water flow through its filtration system appears to be quite strong. When the cleaner is in the shallow end you can really see the water rippling the surface of the water.

    About As Good As One Could Expect, I guess?

    Well let me first be honest and say that my pool was FILTHY when I opened it this season. We had a new Loop-Loc cover installed on our L-shape in-ground pool during the fall and it let every bit of dust and dirt under the edges and into the pool. It was a big big mess. However I was not going to clean the whole pool with my rechargeable pool vacuum that I used last year because it took forever. So I decided for sure that I wanted a robot to help with the maintenance and did a ton of research. This one IMO was the best available according to price and reviews. It seems that all of the robots had issues with one thing or another.Its nice to be able to just plug this thing in, drop it in, turn it on, and walk away. It really was that simple out of the box. It came with a set of filters already installed as well as an extra set for the smaller particles.

    Fabulous Pool Vac

    I love this pool vacuum. We have a large pool - 20' x 40' and 10' deep in the deep end. We also live in a wooded area surrounded by oak trees. It used to take us 2 hours to vacuum the pool, backwash the pump, etc. Since we got the Dolphin, it's a 5-minute set up and a 5- to 7-minute clean up. The Dolphin runs for approximately 2 hours, and picks up lots of bugs, leaves and dirt. Starting it is easy - plug the power box into an outlet, plug the Dolphin into the power box, place the Dolphin in the water, swaying it back and forth to release air bubbles, feed cord into the pool, and turn on the power. Dolphin moves in a random pattern all over the pool, much like a Roomba on a carpet. Fine filters trap dirt and bugs in the Dolphin. I am always surprised at how much dirt it captures. When the Dolphin is done, remove it from the water (I like to do this as close to the skimmer as possible due to some particles coming out as the Dolphin is lifted from the water), wash off the... 5/5 Avid Reader "hungryjenn" (Tucker, GA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Needs better filters

    First, let me say that I have been using an Aquabot Pool Rover Jr for several years. I brush my bottom and walls every month or so but I don't even know where my vacuum is. Haven't vacuumed for at least 3 years.Rover started having problems and the cord looks ugly so I thought I would replace it. The Breeze XLS is Aquabot's new model for above ground pools. I like that it has brushes. Maybe I can get away with brushing only a few times a year. Breeze also filters more water than the Pool Rover Jr and the pick ups are adjustable so it cleans a lot better.Put the Breeze XLS in my pool and watched it move quickly around the bottom. Even climbed the sides once in a while. Picked up the ants, leaves and sticks on the bottom of my pool but it let the dirt pass right through. Stirred the water up enough that my filter eventually cleaned up the dirt but my Pool Rover Jr had trapped all of the dirt itself.Called Aquabot support and got a girl that was clueless.

    Poor quality. Poor warranty terms

    I don't post reviews often, but this product was horrible and the warranty is worse. I purchased this to replace my Polaris that had gone bad. I was a little skeptical, but the price was right and the reviews were mixed. The robot cleaned like a dream for about 90 days then stopped working. I pulled it out of the water and followed the troubleshooting instructions that were provided. After all of the steps were taken I called Customer Service which was very polite and they gave me the phone number of the service center that was close by. Being that the service center is 500 miles away I was going to ship it. I was told by the Customer Service rep and the Repair center that I was responsible for shipping both ways. I went to my local UPS store and shipping was $100 each way with insurance. Due to the dimensions of the product and the weight it was just not worth shipping it back.

I have a 18 X 36 foot in ground freeform pool and have found it does an excellent job. It's very quick and does the job in 2 hours. It doesn't get stuck on the pool light or steps as other pool cleaners have in the past. I owned an Aquabot classic and I would have to periodically check on it as it would get stuck. Not this model, I set it and forget it and when it shuts itself off in 2 hours my pool is clean and clear.I love it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 8, 2013

    Love the simplicity

    With so many things to maintain for a pool already, the last thing I want to do is to maintain an automatic pool cleaner. If I have to replace belts, tracks, booster pumps, and so on, then I might as well spend that time with an old fashioned pole vacuum instead. Before I bought this T-Jet I had a tough time deciding between the Polaris series, T-Jet, and the Turbo T2 model.I ended up buying the T-Jet because of the simplicity with so few moving parts that can break. I'm happy with the decision. The T-Jet cleans the pool crystal clear. But to get the best performance, first I had to make some adjustments to the setup out of the box. So here are some tips.The settings on the T-Jet when it first arrives are for impressing you with the speed in which the water jets propel it across the pool - to maximize the water flow but not maximizing the cleaning potential. The changes I made were the following: 1. snap on the intake extender so that the suction port is... 5/5 D. Coral - See all my reviews, July 17, 2009

    Almost Perfect

    **Update: After a year of use, I'd still give it a 4 star rating. Over the past year, I never had to clean the filter cartridges on my pool. All the dirt and debris that usually went into the filter cartridges got vacuumed up by the robot. I also never had to vacuum the pool using a vacuum head connected to by pool's filtration system. This spring my pool was a mess with dirt and leaf debris. I put in the robot with the leaf bag and several hours later all the debris was vacuumed up. Then I switched to the fine filter bag and a few hours later had a pristine looking pool again. For the money, this has been a great purchase. **Before I bought the turbo, I was cleaning my pool using a conventional vacuum head on a pole that was connected to my filter system. It would take me at least 30 minutes to move the vacuum back and forth across the entire pool to clean it. I have a cartridge filter system so all that dirt I vacuumed up just went into the filter. At times I would have... 4/5 J. Weber (Texas) - See all my reviews, June 21, 2009

    It climbs walls and gets out of deep ends ... with floatation adjustment

    There are essentially three types of automatic pool cleaner: pressure side, e.g. Polaris, suction side, e.g. Kreepy Krauly, and robotic pool cleaner, e.g. Aquabot. I assume that you have gone through the pros and cons of them and decide that you want to get a robotic pool cleaner. If you have not, I suggest you find reviews on the web to see which one is best for your pool.I chose Turbo T-Jet because it is the least expensive of all models, and it doesn't have a lot of parts to possibly go wrong (belts, motors). It has only one motor. That motor sucks water through a filter bag and also propells the cleaner forward.1. Effectiveness: It is quite effective for the area it goes through. It comes with two filter bags: mesh one for big leaves and debris and fine one for sand and silt. I use the fine one all the time. It picks up tiny sand and even algae.2. Clean time: It goes random paths and has no clues about where is covered and where is not. I found that... 4/5 Pete Chen (East Bay, CA) - See all my reviews, August 22, 2010

    They call it "The Classic"

    I bought my aquabot "classic" at BJ's Wholesale Club about 4 years ago. I was under the impression that this unit would be fool-proof, easy to use, a work horse, and cheap to operate.Let's start this review with how it operates first and then get into the maintenance issues towards the end of the review. They're advertising that you simple plug it in and walk away. It cleans the whole pool, the steps, goes around obstacles such as ladders and will not get stuck. I personally found that I had to "baby" this unit. Every hour or so there seemed to be something going on. I found that it did hang on the pool ladder occasionally, so after a few times, I simply started pulling the ladder out to avoid this from happening. No big deal. In 4 years, I must say that I only saw this unit on the steps a few times, but then again, I wasn't watching too much. If I wanted the steps cleaner, I would catch the unit and placed it there physically. Then there's the claim that this unit will vacuum... 5/5 Joseph S.

    Works fine when it's not broken

    0 2/5 historicalfictionfan (Texas) - See all my reviews This review is from: Aquabot AB Aquabot Classic In-Ground Robotic Swimming Pool Cleaner (Lawn & Patio) We've owned this machine since May 2007. It has been sitting in our garage for a year, since the repairs needed (electrical cord, electrical supply box, filter bag, etc.) would cost over $600 including shipping (to New Jersey from Texas). During the first two years the brush, drive track and drive belts have had to be replaced at least once if not more. The filter bag tore apart last year as well. It worked beautifully the first year and pretty well the second, but replacing the belts, track and brush was somewhat difficult. Also, I do not know if this is typical for robotic pool cleaners, but after being in the pool and filled with water, it was pretty heavy and somewhat difficult for me to lift out of the pool. I cannot recommend this machine due to the high repair costs. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 21, 2010
