'Cleaning a swimming pool requires specialty and precision which the Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner can ensure with damn efficiency. It’s an amazing gadget that has been performing as expected since its inception. As an updated version of the previous groundbreaking Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner, it offers new features along with everything of the previous one.
Most of the users have appreciated it as an efficient and clever cleaning system. The onboard sensors (works line GPS) can make a map for optimizing its efficiency. The high-end scanning system can detect the obstacles around the pool. With its advanced technologies, the Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus is one of the best robotic pool cleaners in its category currently available. It cleans the pool thoroughly by reaching all of its corners from top to bottom without or with a minimal interruption.
Most amazingly, it starts to clean when you deploy it into your pool by measuring the size, dimensions, and condition of the pool automatically, which maximizes the amount of cleaning efficiency. We would discuss all of the later in this Dolphin Nautilus Plus Review. Before going to detail discussion, let’s check out the key facts of the Nautilus CC Plus cleaning machine.
Key Findings of the Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Review - Why Should You Buy It?
We considered every possible fact and feature, including, but not limited to, cleaning precision, area coverage, cleaning cycle duration, mapping, scrubbing, filtration & dirt collection, updated technology, price, and user response of the Dolphin Nautilus CC Automatic Pool Cleaner when reviewing it. We are completely satisfied with the unit. If you own a Nautilus CC Plus, you won’t lose.
Let’s check why you should buy it:
Clever Clean Technology
The Clever Clean Scanning System included in the Nautilus CC Plus is an amazing feature. It controls the onboard sensors that scan the whole pool and figure out the best possible and fastest way to move and run the entire pool. To do so, it measures the size, dimensions, and condition of the pool immediately after you deploy it into the pool.
Dolphin Nautilus Plus with CleverClean technology cleans thoroughly from top to bottom (pool walls and in-ground pool floor) of the pool by a map fixed by the onboard sensors, which act more likely a GPS. Although it can cover up to 50 feet within 2 hours of cleaning cycles, we watched it best functioning at 30 feet in 2 hours.
The more it would do is to sensing the obstacles on its way of cleaning under the pool or the pool walls. Thus, the machine can avoid them and return to a smooth way optimized by itself without any manual input of a person, which makes the cleaning task hassle-free and fast.
Double Layer Filtration
It comes with two different layers of filtration- one for larger debris and another for smaller debris. The filter is easy to access and comes with ultra-fine cartridge and mesh screen for large debris. It’s significant because most of the pool cleaners used to catch both debris (small and large) together and accumulate those without separation in a single filter. It takes larger time to clean them compared to the Nautilus CC double-layer filters. Moreover, it can return to the cleaning route faster again and again for the faster filter cleaning. It comes with 2 Rotating Brushes that makes the dirt lifting fast and precise
No Booster Ramp or Hose
It requires no hose or booster ramp and it comes with an anti-tangle swivel cable technology. It doesn’t come with a hose because the CC Plus doesn’t require it, in fact. Instead, the superior anti-tangle software makes the job done. It ensures interruption free and faster movement of the cleaner. It reduces the cleaning complication and boosts up the machine’s capacity to clean. If it were adorned with such hose, it would have been slow and less efficient under the pool.
Like the previous Dolphin Nautilus Robotic Pool Cleaner, it features a 360-degree suction. That means it sucks a larger amount of water than most other robotic cleaners produced by different brands. An interesting added feature is that you need 30% less backwash than the previous model, which will definitely offer you some more benefits. Overall, you will need to provide less amount of chemicals into the pool water for the brilliant service of this high-end cleaning machine.
Energy Efficient and Ease of Use
It’s 8 times more efficient and energy saving than the regular pressure cleaners and/or suction cleaners. By cutting down the energy use, it saves your money continuously in every pool cleaning session throughout its lifetime. With the single-use button, it makes things easier to use the unit. The Dolphin CC Plus will work inside the pool for you even when you play outside.
Price and User Responses
For a robotic pool cleaner, the price of Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus is fair; if you compare other machines of this category, you will get it. In fact, in our observation, for such a beautiful and efficient automated product, you can easily invest something around a thousand bucks.
When it comes to user certification, it’s been impressive. Although around 15% of users have stated their dissatisfaction about the product, we are still amused that over 80% of users have expressed their satisfaction with it. Actually, for any type of robotic machine or gadget (not only the pool cleaner), receiving more than 80% of users’ certification is a big achievement for the product. Watching most of the dolphin pool cleaner reviews, you can tell it a user-choice without hesitation.
Flaws - What You Should Consider
We have stated some of its common and potential flaws and/or user complaints previously on the top of this content. Here we will dissect them instead of adding unnecessary points.
- It’s true that it faces problem to scrub the waterline.
- There are a very few high-end robotic pool cleaners that catch the large and small debris differently. But we still expect more update as regards the CC Plus’s capacity to collect large debris such as leaves.
- The Swivel Power Connector is one of the greatest features in it and most probably in any other robotic pool cleaner. But, it’s weak and gets leaked sometime, which should have been upgraded.
- No doubt it can cover a larger area, but the performance becomes weaker when it starts to clean any area crossing 30 feet. It’s super till 30 feet and finishes its task within 2 hours, but weak when crosses the area line.
- It’s true that the timer may do malfunction sometimes.
- We didn’t find but still, some of its users have complained that it floats above the bottom and misses debris.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many years may it live?
A: It’s a tricky question and the answer is relative which depends on several facts such as use, maintenance, pool length. We noticed that it performs really well throughout the warranty period. The amount of returned cleaner for servicing is not that much significant.
Q: Can you use it in any of the standard voltage available in different areas of the world?
A: You can use it at any voltage ranging from 100 volts to 240 volts. That means you can use it worldwide.
Q: Can you use it on the above ground of your pool?
A: Although the Dolphin pool cleaner manual directs it not to use it on the above ground cleaning of your pool, we don’t see any significant danger if you do that. You can try but stop if anything negative comes in a result.
The manufacturer “Maytronics” has given its best effort to produce a symbol of excellence in pool cleaning. So far we observed, they have been more or less successful. The Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner is one of the easy to use and best-performing robotic pool cleaners available out there. It may cost a couple of hundred bucks but gives the best value for the money. So, overall a highly-recommended robotic pool cleaner.
