Pool Tricks Of The Trade

Reviews of Swimming Pool Products

Maintaining a pristine pool can be a time-consuming task, but the Dolphin Proteus DX4 Robotic Swimming Pool Cleaner promises to make this chore a breeze.

Pros: Simple to use, energy efficient, excellent cleaning capability, easy cleaning
Cons: Towards the higher end of the price spectrum for cleaners

After a couple of quick connections and a splash, the Dolphin DX4 exhibited remarkable efficiency in cleaning. It systematically covered the entire pool surface thanks to its enhanced technology, leaving no corner untouched. The combination of powerful scrubbing brushes and a suction vacuum ensured the removal of both fine debris and stubborn dirt, providing a thorough cleaning of the pool floor, walls, and waterline.

The power cord incorporates anti-tangling technology that helped from getting twisted as it navigated the pool.  This is especially helpful in free-form shaped pools.

The Dolphin Proteus DX4 incorporated a large top-loading filter basket, having room for a lot of debris and provided for easy removal and emptying. The filter basket is easily accessible and is rinsed clean with minimal effort, maintaining optimal performance for each cleaning session.

As with most robotic swimming pool cleaners, the control box plugs into a nearby outlet and is set on the deck.  The control box is water resistant, but it’s not a good idea to leave it out in the rain.  The control box feeds 12V, low voltage power to the cleaner with a tangle resistant cord.  It’s best to set the control box in the center of the pool so there is plenty of cord to reach the entire pool.  The 12V motor is very energy efficient as compared to some of the pressure type cleaners.  In addition, there are several programming modes so that you can customize your cleaning routine.  A caddy is also available which will keep the control box off the floor and help maintain a tangle-free cord when not in use.

Who is this for?  The Dolphin Proteus DX4 swimming pool cleaner is for the pool owner that is seeking a hassle free, energy efficient, effective method for maintaining a clean pool surface.  It will help pool owners spend less time maintaining and more time enjoying their pool.
