Well worth the money

M491 - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 25, 2020

We finally broke down and retired our 15 year old Jandy Ray Vac. The Dolphin is a major step up to the old Ray Vac and it works incredibly quick. First of all the unit is extremely well made. The seller, In The Swim, is a major retailer who does stand behind these devices should there be any repair/warranty work required. The robot literally works 5 minutes out of the box. Open, unpack, connect the power supply to the robot cord and drop into the pool. I had issues getting my wifi feature to work but no worries, the unit will run for 2 hours by default without the app. I brought the power supply into my house where it linked up immediately. Now everything is configured on the app. The cleaning is very very good. The old Ray Vac could never compare and only vacuuming the pool was comparable. There are two sets of filters included and the removal and cleaning of the dirt filters is very simple and gets all the debris removed so the robot is nice and clean. I am very happy with this purchase. Update 8/25/20 This is by far the best pool purchase I have made since building our unground pool 15 years ago. The Dolphin comes up to the water line and does a great job of keeping the tile clean. the floor is a simple task and we have trees nearby that litter the pool any time a bit of wind comes along. I just drop the Dolphin in and that's all I do. I have had more time to focus on the water chemistry as a result. The only limitation is around steps and seats. The robot cannot get into each step and get all the debris. I will just brush those area and the Dolphin can easily get it. Not a big issue since I am skimming the pool at the same time. The power supply has wifi which I thought was a stupid addition but I gave it a try. I can see the condition of the pool and add an extra 1 or 2 hours from my house without having to go out and rest the robot. That sounds like a silly extra for really lazy people but it does save time when you walk out from work (Covid work from home) and get back on a conf call and not stopping to play with the pool. Still very happy with the Dolphin robot.

Highly Recommend

J. Puder - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 8, 2021

I’ve waited nearly 6 months to write this review. I have used this robot once a week, every week and I couldn’t be more satisfied. I live in south Florida where pool cleaning never stops for the “winter.” This robot climbs the walls and leaves the pool spotless in 2 hours. I have a set of 3 stairs that it doesn’t always get to the top step on, which I understand, I couldn’t imagine a robot realistically navigating it... but for the rest of my 15,000 gallon pool it rocks! All I do is do a quick brush on the top step, one sweep with the brush on the top tile line (just because I’m OCD), throw the robot in and come back 2 hours later. SPOTLESS. Now let’s hope it lasts! (Fingers crossed)

Dolphin Proteus DX5i is as good as they claim!

Gail - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 18, 2021

First off, I have major kudos to send to Amazon and In The Swim. Ordered online and received the package in less than 24 hours. Unbelievable! Second, DX5i works great. You do need to pair it with your home WiFi, so the power unit needs to be within that footprint, which for some people may be impossible. But after downloading the Dolphin App, snapping a picture of the QR code, and pairing everything, using your cell phone to operate the cleaner is easy. For some reason I had to "re-pair" everything (QR code, WiFi) after a few days of use; hopefully just a 1-time glitch. Cleaning performance and filter cleaning are top-notch for my vinyl liner pool. Definitely recommended.

Dolphin Robotic Pool Cleaner

Susan - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on April 24, 2021

We bought the Kreepy Krauly for our new inground fiberglass pool. It was recommended by our pool installer. It worked but slower and inefficiently than expected. We did a lot of research on the robotic cleaners. We found the Dolphin to have the best reviews and Amazon had the best price. Very much worse the cost. Easy to use and cleans the pool to a shine. Love the blue tooth option so you can guide the Dolphin to sweep only what you need when in a time crunch. Love the way the Dolphin comes up the sides and scrubs the water line. Comes with two sets of filters. A fine and a larger filter. Very impressed and highly recommend.

Amazon Customer - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 26, 2021

Works well but needs a longer cycle. The 1 and 2 hour cycles are not long enough to fully clean my 40K gallon pool. It’s fine though. I just leave it in and run it every day and it keeps it well cleaned that way.

Set-up was simple. Took a couple of tries to pair with the iOS app. Once paired, controlling the robot from my iPhone is easy and quick. Cleans the pool as advertised. This includes the bottom, sides, and water-line. I am in the desert so sand is a constant problem in the pool. The Dolphin takes care of it every time. Although this model is expensive, it is recommended highly.

We were struggling to warrant sinking this much into a cleaner. Our previous one had been messing so we just finally caved. My wife is incredibly impressed with the function, capacity, and just overall cleaning results for our 36k gallon pool. Update: only complaints are that the cord tangles itself and that sometimes the machine opens up underwater. Other wise it's perfect.

Product Not ready for the consumers ...

simin - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 2, 2020

Definitely this product is NOT ready for the market. The app does not work , not user friendly and when I called they told me I should move the robot close to the router which is ridculous , as everybody has wifi by the pool but the machine does not have strong signal & could not get any signals. and when manualy we start then it stops and you have to manually start the machine a couple of times .....we had to do this a few times. Once it starts it does the job. But sorry this is not suppose to be cumbersome .It is suppose to be easy to use. Son not sure who gave it 5 star .. Must have been one of their tech support ! :o)) The SECOD worst part , if you decide to return after 3 days , within the first 10 days , you have to pay for the package .. as they say because it was put in the water. How are we suppose to know if this POOL vacuum works or not IF we dont use it in the pool ? totally Moron ! they should be customer focused and take their Beta Version of product back with pleasure.

April Jenkins - Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 17, 2021

I spend more time trying to keep it online to use it then I do actually having my pool cleaned. It constantly tells me there is a connection problem with the cloud. I have to unplug it, redownload it to the app, and reconnect it to the cloud and internet every time I want to use the machine. It's a lot of money to spend and not be able to use appropriately. When it does clean my pool it does do a good job removing items off the bottom. The filter is easy to clean.

Thoroughly Disappointed

D. Taylor - Reviewed in the United States on December 2, 2021

We bought one of these to replace a Polaris 360 that I got sick of overhauling all the time. This is the worst $899 we've ever spent. We should've just bought another Polaris. This machine NEVER completely cleans our modest sized (17'x24') pool. We have to run it 3 or 4 times in a row just to get the whole bottom of the pool cleaned. It never cleans the steps. The cord is perpetually tangled, but there is at least enough length for it to traverse the whole pool. We have the optional silt filters, but they do absolutely nothing. The app is just short of terrible. There's very little you can do with it outside of starting and stopping the robot. You can set scheduled cleanings, but it's kind of pointless when the instructions say not to leave the robot in the water when not in use. If you have to go put the robot in the water every time you want to use it, what's the point of a schedule (or even the app, for that matter?) You only get two run time options; 1 hour or 2 hours. Neither of which is remotely long enough for how this robot performs. The manual control in the app IS terrible. It's VERY slow to respond and thereby nearly impossible to get the robot to react the way you want it to. The robot climbs the walls fairly well, WHEN it decides to actually climb them. It seems like it sees everything as an obstacle, from small debris on the bottom to even its own weight. (It'll start to climb a wall, but will stop and go back down.) It won't traverse the entire bottom of the pool in one trip. It'll go a few feet then stop and change directions. And it seems like it always wants to stop RIGHT BEFORE it picks up some debris. Watching the old Polaris do its thing was often peaceful. Watching this robot do its thing is pure frustration. I will never buy another robotic pool cleaner, and I would NOT recommend this one to anyone.

I had an in floor cleaning system that I relied in for almost 5 years. Live in a dusty windy area. My pool was never clean. After running two 2 hour cleaning cycles, the pool is spotless. I couldn’t believe the fine dust, sand and debris that the unit picked up. I now have the pool I always wanted. Now for the bad news. If you are looking to actually control everything via WiFi think again. If the app worked the way it was supposed to work this would be a 5 star review. I can only get it running by manually starting the unit. WiFi and Bluetooth signals are strong while the functionality is weak. Would still recommend if it is a chore keeping your pool clean and clear.

Question & Answers

Why won't this cleaner climb the walls?

The above ground robotic pool cleaners are designed specifically for cleaning the FLOORS ONLY.

What is the typical life span of a Dolphin robot?

The Dolphin is designed to last many seasons. However, the lifespan differs from Dolphin to Dolphin. Many different factors play a role, such as amount of use, pool chemistry, and pool surface.

What DIY repairs can I complete on my Dolphin?

DIY repairs should be completed by an authorized technician. Please contact your local retailer for service, Maytronics directly at 1-888-365-7446 or the support page of our website.

What are the voltage requirements for the Dolphin power supply?

The Dolphin requires a standard 120v outlet for power.

Any problems navigating steep inclines between shallow and deep end?

My 30+ yr old pool has a steep incline from 12’ to 4’ and Proteus covers that with no problem. It also works fine climbing walls - much better than my Aquabot ever did.

Hola este limpiador sirve para piscina de agua salada

Hola, no sabría. La mía es de agua dulce y funciona bien. Saludos.

just got bot, Set it up put it in pool it ran for about 30 Seconds then stopped and a red light comes on on Control box. Tried unplugging and resting

I had the same thing. A red light. A couple bubbles and that was it. WIFI/Blue tooth connected. No movement at all

Does this have a swivel cord to prevent tangling while cleaning?

The cord is on top of the machine and has a float to prevent tangling. I have never had the cord tangle during several dozen uses.

Can I use this model for an above ground pool

We have a in ground pool. We are not happy with the proformance of this cleaner.

How long is a warranty on this item? I bought it in 2020 and it has a problem now. Who do I contact about it ?

Do you need to take it out of pool in the wintDo you need to take it out of the water when it gets cold?er

Unless you have a heated pool and use it during the winter, I recommend taking the Dolphin out of the pool during the winter so as to avoid ice damage to cleaner.

Is this safe for a vinyl pool?

We have a vinyl liner in our pool and it works great!

What is the difference between the front high speed brush and the back brush?

Both the same.

does this clean algae

Yes, this model has two types of filters, and one of them captures the algae very well. Plus, since this model climbs the walls, you also get algae removal from the bottom of the pool and the walls. Love it!!!

Does the dolphin proteus dx5i comes with a caddy like the pentair prowler 930 ?

No this one did not come with a caddy

Can the dx5i be used on pebbletec? the video shows it in a pebbletec pool, but the description says vinyl or fiberglass surfaces only.

I have the Proteus DX3 and I use it on my pebbletec pool with no issues. It does a great job

Does the DX5i come with ultra fine filters?


How long as you go


starts backs up blows water out back then stops and shuts off. Panel has one button and it turns red. Everything else is set up. Has worked for 30 sec

The only way I can use mine is in manual mode. blowing water out the back is by design. The WiFi does not work on mine so $500 of the $1000 was a waste of money.. If you are starting it in manual mode and it repeatedly quits then it has a problem and I would return it. Remember, if you can cancel the WiFi version and get the manual only unit, it will save you $500. All this said, when they do work, they do a great job of cleaning the pool. I did buy the third year extended warranty and fully expect to use it. Good luck!

Do you need to take it out in the winter?


Is this one good for leafs

I only have had mine for 1/2 of the summer season, but yes - it did a good job on picking up the leaves. Our pool is surrounded by trees so we get quite a few leaves in late summer/early fall before we close it for the season, and the Dolphin Proteus DX5i picked them all up.

Does robot climb steps

It climbs our steps

DX5i need to change power cord? Have new cord but need instructions on how to change on the machine?

Yes it does

Does the dx5i have the ability to clean stairs?

It does not effectively clean stairs. My pool has 5 steps and a tanning ledge. It will climb one step then reverse itself.

Any problems with this vacuum on vinyl liners?

No not a one —which I had bought this years ago! Love it.

Can this model be use on a 5 yard by 25 yard in ground pool?

Depends on the placement of you plug! The robot 🤖 in the pool is fine!

Will leaving in the water during warm summer months really harm or cause damage?

I have left ours I. A couple of days I a row with no damage to the machine

Does this come with the mydolphin app or mydolphin+ plus?

Yes it does and it’s very convenient!
