The Dolphin Nautilus is a robotic pool cleaner that cleans pool floor, cove and walls. This pool robot does not require a booster pump or pool pump to operate. Rather than using filter bags, it has its own filter cartridge which is easily cleaned after cleaning the pool.
Dolphin Nautilus includes a 60-foot floating power cable. The cable is equipped with a swivel device. The swivel device protects the cable from coiling and twisting.
Dolphin Nautilus Pros and Cons
- It cleans the pool with barely any noise.
- The filters can be easily removed, cleaned and then replaced.
- It is capable of climbing to the waterline through the pool wall.
- Does not need the pool pump and pool filter to operate.
- It finds trouble cleaning the sharp angles of the pool.
- It gets heavy when being removed from the pool after cleaning.
- It lacks a caddy which would have been helpful in moving the cleaner from the pool.
- Bigger leaves may stick in the vacuum intake and as a result make the pool cleaner to stop working.
Dolphin Nautilus vs Dolphin Nautilus Plus
The Dolphin Nautilus Plus is a newer version of the Dolphin Nautilus. It has been made a little bigger than the Dolphin Nautilus. The filter cartridges in Dolphin Nautilus Plus are slightly bigger in size. The filter access point differentiates the two cleaners distinctly. The filter access point of the Dolphin Nautilus Plus is at the top of the cleaner whereas the filter access point of the Dolphin Nautilus is at the bottom of the cleaner.
The area covered while cleaning also differs for the two cleaners. The Nautilus Plus is more advanced with a high tech scanning ability. Its scan ability is powered by a software. The software provides it with a route disclosing the specific area of coverage. That is the shape and size of the pool. Evidently, this makes the cleaner efficient in cleaning the pool walls and floor.
To add on top, the Nautilus Plus is made with a handle which increases the usability of the cleaner. The Dolphin Nautilus lacks a handle. Instead it has twain grips on both sides of the cleaner.
These two pool ceaners have a difference in price of up to 100 dollars.
Dolphin Nautilus with CleverClean
This is yet another shot from Maytronics. Introduced to the market in 2017, the cleaner comes with CleverClean smart navigation to scan and clean your pool.
Features of the Dolphin Nautilus with CleverClean
- Lighter than other Nautilus pool cleaners by 50%.
- Uses anti-tangling cleaning patterns to prevent a cable from tangling.
- Top load filter basket.
- Single scrubbing brush.
- Cleans pool floor and climbs walls.
The Dolphin Nautilus with CleverClean is considered to be a great pool robot. This is similar to the other Nautilus pool cleaners. However, removing the no-tangle swivel off the cable was not a good idea. The recently introduced anti-tangling software does not seem to solve the tangling problem.
