  1. I bought the Dolphin diagnotic last week to whip my pool back into shape. My pool is L shaped inground 36000 gallon vinyl liner. I was expecting too much if your pool is very dirty with leaves and algie you need to clean it first.
    It does not go up the walls and it is quite a chore to clean the bags. It does not cover the entire pool but leaves many areas untouched. I am going to return it this weekend. I have ran it thru 5 cyles what a pain it is.

    • Hi Michael,

      Just curious if you purchased a different cleaner? If so, which one and how’s it working. I have the same type of pool and was about to purchase the dolphin. Glad I saw your post!!!

      • Listen to me, do not buy this product. The cleaner gets stuck on your main drain and continues in the same spot if doesnt get stuck. It can not find its way back to the shallow end when it leaves. Also, I learned cleaning your wall with a pool cleaner is a waste of time and money. For one the machine is on your walls way to long and another the sucyion is not good for the liner. I dont know what to tell you what to buy. I can tell you DO NOT BUY THIS POOL CLEANER!!! Good luck.

  2. I bought the Dolphin Diagnostic last Friday at my local pool store, paying more than I would have if I bought it on-line but with the assurance that I could easily return the unit if it didn’t work in my pool. I had concerns even before I took the unit home as Maytronics website indicates that the unit is good for pools up to 20 X 40 and my pool is 50 ft long. The manager of the store knows my pool and stated that it would be no problem as the cord is 65 ft long and my midpoint of the pool would allow for more than adequate coverage.

    The unit ran for several hours but after only 90 minutes the cord was so twisted up that the unit was limited in its travel. This problem persists even with straightening of the cord and insuring that the handle is flipped with each use to reverse direction of travel. The unit does not provide complete coverage – even of the pool bottom. The unit would clean the walls on one quadrant of the deep end of the pool but not the other 3 quadrants. I have a baja shelf that is quite large but the unit could not find its way onto the shelf.

    To be truthful, my old pool sweep did a much better job than the Dolphin Diagnostic. I really like the idea of running a low voltage cleaning system and spending the money to get one was not an issue. Paying for something that doesn’t work – now THAT’S an issue. Thankfully my pool store is run by great people and they took the unit back with no problem. I’m now on the hunt for a better unit; or maybe I’ll just by the newest version of my old pool sweep.

  3. Out of a scale of 1-10 with 1 being the worst score….I would give this product a 10++….
    I had written a longer post but lost it due to not filling in the complete email address….so I am not going to rewrite it again….as I have problems with both hands…but our pool is a rectangle in shape and it was super dirty this year….but the Dolphin performed so well…I am thankful that we purchased this product since I can no longer clean it like it needs to be cleaned….that’s my story and I’m sticking to it….

  4. The Bridgehampton features textured pebble
    leather pops. If it is low, then you need an increaser and to also check your alkalinity.
    Even though the freestanding bath has a traditional appearance, it can also be a focal point in your bathroom.
