Maytronics DX3 Dolphin Robotic Cleaner Review

Maytronics DX3 Dolphin Robotic Cleaner Review

When the word swimming pool is mentioned, the first thoughts that come to mind are: relaxation, reading books, parties, chilling out and so on.

However, there is also a stressful side to it and swimming pool owners know it all too well – cleaning. Maintaining a swimming pool is not easy at all, especially when it comes to cleaning because it can be extremely exhausting. Trees, wind and all sorts of wildlife are a pool’s worst enemy.

Having to clean it manually is awfully time consuming, along with that you also use up a lot of energy and at the end of the day you will eventually get sick of owning a pool and this would probably reduce the wish to even spend time by the pool for any reason.

Thankfully, there is a really useful invention to make your life easier and help you enjoy all the benefits of owning a pool without the task of cleaning one up manually. We’re talking about robotic pool cleaners. It’s a device that cleans your in-ground or above ground pool for you and you don’t even move a muscle.

One of the leading models for in-ground pool cleaning for some time now is the Maytronics DX3 Dolphin Robotic Cleaner. It does a great job cleaning the walls, floor and even the cover of your pool. It’s a great device that saves you time and energy.

Summary

The Maytronics DX3 dolphin robotic pool cleaner is an in-ground pool machine and that is about the only drawback to this model. Some robotic pool cleaners only clean floors, but what is the point in all of that if you have to go in the pool after the machine to scrub the walls?

Well this model has that covered, as it also cleans the pool walls so you can kick back and relax. It has an exceptional design and is built out of higher quality materials than your average robotic pool cleaner.

It uses a 60′ cable and Maytronics recommend a limit of 50′ pools. While newer Maytronics models use the genius filter mesh system, the DX3 dolphin robotic pool cleaner uses filter bags, which still work fine, but it takes a bit more time to clean them up – with a hose.

If you are lazy and don’t feel like cleaning after, you can always buy a replacement bag because this bag is easily replaceable and removable in case it gets damaged. Its weight of 18. 75 pounds is far from being the heaviest machine on the market, but to be fair it still can be quite a task to take it out of the pool for a person that doesn’t have a lot of muscle strength.

Compared to other equally powerful pool cleaners, this device is much easier to operate and maintain. The cycle time is 3 hours, which is not the fastest time of a robotic cleaner on the market, but it still is a very respectable time to achieve.

The internal pump of this device is really strong and it processes 4,233 gallons of water per hour, which makes it one of the strongest ones on the market. It possesses a strong base scrubbing brush which is guaranteed to get the job done and this will be visible even after the first clean.
