Maytronics Dolphin 99996333-DX3

The Maytronics Dolphin 99996333-DX3 is one of the most efficient robotic pool cleaner available on the market. What we really like about this model is the fact that it comes with an advanced technology and plenty of impressive features which make it different from many other models on the market. It is recommended for in-ground pools up to 40 feet in size. Aside from being efficient, this device is also affordable. It costs only $777.41.

Cleaning Performance

This is a great cleaner that delivers automated and high-performance pool cleaning. It comes with a pre-installed software that systematically scans your pool shape and surface for more efficient cleaning. Like a vacuum, it picks up dust and debris from the pool floor, moving around under water to make sure that all dirt can easily go inside the attached dust bag. The manufacturer claims that it also clean the walls and steps. Additionally, it’s very important to know that the device is equipped with its own filtration line. It doesn’t attach itself to the pool’s filtration system, which means that the load that is put on the pool filtration system is reduced. Some of its features are:

  • Dual Filtration Systems – The fact that the water is cycled through two separate filtration systems is a major perk. One is the filtration system of the unit and the other is the original pool filtration system
  • Filter Bag – The fine porosity filter bag that is used in this cleaner enables the filtration in order to catch debris and dust that are very small in size
  • High Capacity – Keep in mind that the suction rate of this unit is set at 4.233 gallons per hour which mean that 4.233 gallons of water cycle through the filtration system every hour

The cycle time is approximately 3 hours and it requires a 120V outlet with GFCI for the power supply. Another interesting feature that you will notice at this device is the indicator light that comes on when the filter needs cleaning. This is a great visual reminder and it helps the unit to function optimally.

Design and accessories

This is a lovely looking machine. At 18.75 pounds, this unit is small and lightweight, being extremely easy to carry and maneuver. Additionally, it is equipped with a swivel cable that allows it to pivot around at any point. This way the device can move freely, without getting stuck in any corner. The cable is around 60 feet in length and enables the cleaner to cover the length of large pools. The swivel cable also ensures that the wire doesn’t get tangled. This is another advantage that the unit has over other cleaners that face this problem.

Ease of use

This is one of those models that doesn’t ship with a caddy. The caddy is not an essential element, but it can make storage and transport a little bit easier. Despite the fact that it doesn’t come with this accessory, the Dolphin DX3 is easy to use handle and carry. This is a plug and play device. As such, you just have to plug in the power supply and drop it in the water and it will do the rest. As mentioned before, this is a lightweight product which comes with a black mounted handle, so getting it out of the water shouldn’t be very difficult. The only possible drawback regarding this device is the fact that it doesn’t come with a remote for manual control. Furthermore, it’s important to know that the access to the filter bag is gained through the bottom of the device. Therefore, you need to remove the bag regularly and rinse it with a garden hose. The bag can be also washed in the washing machine or rinsed with a bleach solution in order to kill all the algae spores.
