Proteus Line:

The Dolphin Robotic Pool Cleaners by Maytronics have been some of the top-rated cleaners on the market. The Proteus line of the Dolphin Cleaners are some of the best and they have three models the Proteus DX3, the Proteus DX4 and the Proteus DX5i. Each of these models is in different categories based on their various features. I will highlight the features of all three models for you so that you can decide which one is right for you.

Let me go over the general features that all three cleaners have in common first. One of the great things about the Proteus line of cleaners is that they all weigh less than 14 lbs. This allows for very easy transport and also makes them relatively easy to remove from the pool after the cleaning cycle is over. All three feature an advanced power supply with an easy to use on/off button and a weekly programmable cleaning cycle. You can set the cleaner to clean your pool once per week, 3 times per week or 4 times per week. A great feature to have in a robotic pool cleaner. All three are also top loading cleaners with a very easy to access debris basket.

 

Dolphin DX5i:

The DX5i is part of Dolphin’s Deluxe Class of Robotic Pool Cleaners. Here are some of the features.

 

“The Dolphin Proteus DX5i now offers two cleaning cycles for added convenience. The one-hour cleaning cycle is ideal for a quick clean, particularly on the floor and cove. The two-hour cleaning cycle is perfect for full cleaning coverage on floors walls and waterline.

Along with the same precise navigation and advanced 20-minute mapping of your pool, you can now control and drive the Proteus DX5i using the My Dolphin App on your smartphone. It also has an energy saver power supply with more functions than before, like touch-screen control and mode selection.

The Ultra Fine filter inserts are included in the box.

Dolphin DX3:

The DX3 is a great entry-level cleaner that has some premium features like a scrubbing brush, programmable timer and floor to wall cleaning ability. Here are some more features of the DX3.

 

“The Dolphin Proteus DX3 Robotic Pool Cleaner focuses on delivering clean results and easy maintenance. The Proteus DX3 is constructed with a powerful suction that allows it to easily climb up the walls and seamlessly come back down.

It is equipped with an active brush that spins faster than the speed of the unit itself to scrub away dirt, debris, and bacteria. Once the net basket is full, simply empty and rinses clean. The Proteus DX3 also offers a quick water release, which makes removing the cleaner from the pool a breeze.”

S300i Robotic Pool Cleaner

The Dolphin S300i Robotic Pool Cleaner by Maytonics is one of their flagship cleaners. The S300i combines the best of what Maytronics does into one finely tuned machine. Don't let the compact size and old school robotic cleaner look fool you. The S300i is loaded and ready to tackle any pool.

 

First, let me touch on the S-Series by Dolphin as there are four different models in this series. The S100 is their budget version but is still packed with many great features. The S200 is a step up from that and the S300 series is their premium cleaner with two models. The standard S300 model and the S300i. The S300i can be controlled and programmed using the MyDolphin App through your Smart Phone or Device's Bluetooth connection. 

 

The one thing that sets the S300i apart from other robotic cleaners is that you can control and program the cleaner from the My Dolphin App. After downloading and installing the app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store you can connect to the S300i via your device's Bluetooth. Once connected you can set custom cleaning modes. A weekly cleaning schedule and cleaner run time. There is also a really cool remote control mode where you can control the cleaner manually from your Smart Phone or Device. The My Dolphin App is a great feature and in my testing worked perfectly. If needed you can also control the S300i from the Multi-Function Power Supply which is also included.

 

The S300i comes with an easy to assemble and very sturdy caddy for easy transport to your pool and for storing the cleaner when not in use. This caddy holds the power supply as well as the cleaner and cord.
