Maxwell Dolphin C3 Vs C4 Vs. C5 Vs. C6 – Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaners
Today, we’re going to be taking a look at four excellent commercial robotic pools. Each one of these robotic pool cleaners comes from Maytronics and is part of their acclaimed “Dolphin” product line. More specifically, we’re going to be looking at the Dolphin C3, the Dolphin C4, the Dolphin C5, and the Dolphin C6.

Now, all of these robotic pool cleaners are great. They each have their own distinct features and advantages, and they all work very well at, well, cleaning your pool. However, each one of these robotic pool cleaners has a couple of differences, and these differences affect the way your pool is cleaned. That is why we’re going to be looking at these robotic pool cleaners individually so that you can assess which one is the right one for you.

Now, before we dive into the Dolphin C3, the first robotic pool cleaner, let’s go over a quick definition of what a robotic pool cleaner actually is.

A robotic pool cleaner is a device that is designed to clean your pool. Unlike regular pool cleaners, though, a robotic pool cleaner uses robotics technology, and the unique attributes of that technology, to take the pool cleaning process, and to completely automate it. From this automation, you don’t actually have to do much of anything, in order to actually clean your pool.

Most robotic pool cleaners use basic filtration methods and a strong scrub brush, combined with strong suction, to thoroughly clean your pool. To use the robotic pool cleaner, all you need to do is make sure the filters are clean, and press the “Power” button. Many robotic pool cleaners also have scheduling options, so that way you don’t have to manually turn on the robotic pool cleaner.

To begin this list, we have the Dolphin C3 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner. Initially, the first thing that you will notice about this robotic pool cleaner is the design. This is a nice and simple design that uses white as its main color, and this lends itself to a simple, but sleek and minimalist, aesthetic.

Using the robotic pool cleaner is easy, as well, since everything is clearly labeled and delineated. You won’t become confused or uncertain when it comes to actually using this robotic pool cleaner.

With a fifty-foot MAC – Maximum Area Coverage – you probably won’t have any issues using the Dolphin C3 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner, unless your pool is bigger than that. Due to this large MAC, you can clean a variety of pools with this robotic pool cleaner.

When the Dolphin C3 is cleaning your pool, it uses powerful dual scrubbing brushes to thoroughly scrub off and remove all of the dirt and grime in your pool. Specifically, the floor of your pool, the walls of your pool, and the waterline. Then, everything flows through two filter cartridges. A fine top-load cartridge filter, and an ultra-fine cartridge filter. This entire cleaning process only takes 2.5 hours.

To properly navigate around your pool, and to do so in an efficient and quick manner, the Dolphin C3 uses CleverClean Technology, which is an advanced navigation system specifically developed for the Dolphin product line.

Dolphin C4 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner Review

With the Dolphin C4 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner, you are getting an excellent robotic pool cleaner that has many similarities to the Dolphin C4 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner. However, there are also a couple of distinct differences that make the Dolphin C4 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner a potentially better choice for you.

Just as with the Dolphin C3, the Dolphin C4 has dual scrubbing brushes. But, the Dolphin C4 also has a third brush. This third brush is great for removing dirt and grime that is especially difficult to remove, and it gives the Dolphin C4 some extra cleaning power.

The other difference is that, using the Dolphin C4, you can now clean pools that are up to sixty-eight feet, rather than only fifty-feet. This larger MAC gives you some more flexibility and versatility, when it comes to the types of pools you clean if you intend to clean more than just your own pool, with this robotic pool cleaner.

Other than that, though, the features are the same as those found in the Dolphin C3. But, this isn’t a bad thing, at all, since the Dolphin C3 is loaded with great features, such as a 2.5 hour cleaning time, and the CleverClean Technology, which is a fantastic navigation system. So, it doesn’t really matter that the Dolphin C4 only has a few extra features, since the features it incorporates from the Dolphin C3 are absolutely fantastic!

Dolphin C5 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner Review

When you first take the Dolphin C5 Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner out of the box, you’ll notice that it has a very distinct design. Aesthetically, it’s simple, but the design emphasizes clarity, as well as durability. And that’s the point because the Dolphin C5 is easily one of the strongest and most durable robot pool cleaners that you can find on the market.

To use the Dolphin C5 is an easy task. The robotic pool cleaner comes with a simple and easy-to-use remote control, along with various options for different types of cleaning cycles. Each one of these options gives you the freedom and flexibility to clean your pool in the way that you want to clean it, and it is this flexibility and versatility that defines the Dolphin C5.

With the Dolphin C5, you have a MAC of 88 feet. This is quite large, especially for a standard pool that you’d find in the backyard. But, it’s very nice having this MAC, and it means you can clean large pools with it, and you can bring it to other pools, as well, that are rather large, and clean those pools.

When the Dolphin C5 is cleaning your pool, it makes use of dual scrubbing brushes. These are strong and durable brushes that work very well. While cleaning, they scrub away and rip off the dirt and grime that is on your pool – whether it’s the floors of your pool, the walls, or the waterline – and then everything is thrown into one of two filtration cartridges. The first filtration cartridge is a fine-filter, and this filter is for filtering out bigger things, like larger chunks of dirt and leaves. And then, there is an ultra-fine filter, which is for much smaller, and more pernicious, types of debris.

Just like the other robot pool cleaners on this list, the Dolphin C5 makes use of CleverClean Technology, but it uses a gyroscope that Maytronics has added, and this makes the robot pool cleaner even more effective, and even more efficient, allowing it to more accurately detect what is around it and what it needs to clean.

Dolphin C6 Plus Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner Review

Finally, we have the Dolphin C6 Plus Commercial Robotic Pool Cleaner. This is by far the most advanced robotic pool cleaner on this list, and it is truly a thing of beauty.

To start off, the MAC of the Dolphin C6 Plus is 121-feet. That’s a considerable amount of space, ensuring that this robotic pool cleaner can clean the majority of pools, due to this feature.

And then, of course, there is the fantastic CleverClean Technology that makes navigation very easy and very efficient, overall. When combined with the newly implemented gyroscope system, you get a robotic pool cleaner that is incredibly efficient and productive, in the way it systematically cleans your pool.

With the Dolphin C6 Plus, you get a robotic pool cleaner that comes with the best of the best, in terms of cleaning technology. And what this means is that you can clean anything, no matter how dirty or difficult it may appear, using this robotic pool cleaner.

Much of that comes from the fact that the Dolphin C6 Plus has four scrubbing brushes. When you combine these, you get an insane amount of cleaning power. This cleaning power can scrub anything off of the walls of your pool, the floor of your pool, and the waterline of your pool. Whether it’s a thick moss or deeply rooted dirt, or something else, these scrubbing brushes can take care of it.

Ultimately, if you want efficiency, power, durability, and convenience, you can’t go wrong with the Dolphin C6 Plus.
