Dolphin Supreme

A newer model on the market, the Dolphin Nautilus CC Supreme has pretty much everything you could need for the perfect finish.

Nautilus CC Supreme

It’s equipped with powerful motors, which not only propel the pool cleaner along, but work simultaneously with its ultra-modern and slick scrubbing brushes to ensure a deeper, more thorough clean. With its two extra-large filter cartridges too, you’ll capture every piece of debris, no matter how small. With the Dolphin Supreme, your pools floors, walls and waterline will be left spotless.

Choose a quick clean, which focuses on the floor only, for those days when you just a top up. For a more substantial clean, there’s the standard cycle, which focuses on your entire pool, scrubbing away those new patches of dirt that appear after a stormy night.

If you’re expecting company though and want to impress your guests, you can set the Supreme up for an enhanced clean, which allows for extra scrubbing time, for the ultimate shine.

Wi-Fi connected, the Dolphin Supreme makes pool cleaning easier than ever before.

From the Smartphone app, you can programme it to do almost anything: set advanced cleaning schedules, choose between cleaning cycles, and even spot clean the toughest and grimiest areas, and what’s more, you can do it from the comfort of your seat. Pool cleaning just became even easier.

Because the Supreme works independently from your pool, you don’t need to worry about your pool’s pump or the pressure in your pool to get a great clean. Simply plug in the Supreme and watch it navigate the waters effortlessly.

Better still, it won’t cost you the earth. With an average operating cost of just 5 cents per hour, you can clean your pool as often as you need whilst saving energy.

Dolphin Premier

An older model, but by no means less useful, the Dolphin Premier is a little more basic, with fewer extreme functions than the Supreme. Having said that, it’s got plenty of features that will keep your pool sparkling through the seasons.

Dolphin Premier Robotic Pool Cleaner

With its powerful dual scrubbing brushes, the Dolphin Premier is built for attacking tough, built-up dirt on your pool’s floor, walls and waterline, and it can complete its rounds within 3 hours.

It’s the ultimate convenient pool cleaner too: simply drop and go. Once the Premier has been plugged in, it’s ideal for pools up to 50ft and will clean until it’s scrubbed up every last spec of dirt. With its weekly scheduler too, you can set it to clean once a day, once every other day or once every third day, which means you can set it and forget it and get on with other things.

The Dolphin Premier is a smart pool cleaner. Using advanced algorithms with it CleverClean software, it’ll deliver an efficient clean and hit every corner, without missing a spot. Plus, with its patented anti-tangle swivel cable, it won’t get trapped on its route, so you don’t have to keep an eye on it.

Finally, when it comes to the filter, the Premier comes with 3 options: bottom-load fine cartridge filters, ultra-fine cartridge filters and an oversized filter bag to ensure that every last piece of debris is sucked up and trapped, leaving your pool clear, fresh and clean and ready for use.

Clearly Dolphin understand exactly how to keep residential pools clean, no matter what your budget may be.

Both the Supreme and the Premier offer unbeatable service: they’re easy to set up, have one click action, and will give every corner of your pool a thorough servicing. When it comes down to it, you could pick either and be happy with the results.

Whilst the Supreme does offer a little more in terms of functionality, with its third scrubbing brush and Wi-Fi remote handling, for example, you will pay extra for these extras, which can be a little much for those of us who are keeping to a budget. Rest assured that if you did decide to pick the Dolphin Nautilus CC Supreme, it would be a good investment that would last you years, without needing excessive maintenance.

However, if you’re simply looking for a basic yet smart and durable pool cleaner, the Premier will give you all you need and more.
