The Dolphin Advantage Robotic Pool Cleaner is self contained and fully automatic. Just drop it in your pool, turn it on and leave it for about 5 hours. It computes a path to maximize cleaning and even climbs the walls to scrub and vacuum the entire pool floor, walls and waterline. This guide shows your how easy a Maytronics Dolphin Cleaner is to operate.
One of your first steps in operating a Dolphin Pool Cleaner is to set the diagonal handle. This handle must be changed at the beginning of each cleaning cycle to optimize cleaning and minimize twist in the cable. There are four possible handle positions that control the programmed motion of the pool cleaner. If the handle was on position 1 or 2 on your last cleaning cycle, change the handle position to 3 or 4 for this cleaning cycle. If the last cleaning cycle was set at 3 or 4 , set the handle at 1 or 2. To set the handle, press down on handle clip and position the end of handle in one of the four slots shown at left. Repeat on other side to position the handle diagonally across the top.
If the Dolphin Pool Cleaner does not climb the wall, check the filter bag. It may be too heavy and need to be emptied. Also check for debris caught between the track and wheels.
The Dolphin Cleaner will operate for 5 hrs then will perform an automatic shut-off. The Cleaner can remain in the pool until you are ready to pull it out. Many people run the cleaner at night and take it out in the morning.
Store the Pool Cleaner in an area that is out of the direct sun and where the temperature stays above 41 degrees. Place the Cleaner on its side so that its weight does not flatten the brushes.
