In this quick guide, we’re going to look at the Dolphin Nautilus CC Automatic Robotic Pool Cleaner. You’re going to learn about the unique features that Maytronics has put into the Dolphin Nautilus CC. You’ll also learn the flaws that this robotic pool cleaner presents. And, ultimately, who this device is for, and if that person is you.

Now, let’s start by looking at the different features that the Dolphin Nautilus CC offers!

What Are The Features And Attributes Of The Dolphin Nautilus CC?

One of the first attributes you need to be aware of is that the Dolphin Nautilus CC supports pools that are, at the most, 33-feet in diameter. So, if you have a pool that is larger than that, you probably don’t want to use this advanced unit.

Not that you can’t, of course, but the sensors won’t work as well, and it won’t be able to clean it as efficiently as it can clean a pool that is 33-feet in diameter, or less than that.

Along the same lines, using this robotic pool cleaner, you can clean both the floor of your pool, as well as the walls.

Not the waterline, though.

Maytronics has spent a lot of time and energy focusing on convenience and simplicity, and this robotic pool cleaner is direct proof of that.

With the press of a single button – this button is on the top of the robotic pool cleaner, and on the remote – you can turn on the Dolphin Nautilus CC, and it will begin its cleaning cycle.

A single cleaning cycle is two-hours. During this two-hour period, a couple of key things will take place.

Before we get into what it is, exactly, that takes place during the cleaning process, there is something else that needs to be noted.

You don’t actually have to manually activate the device. Instead, there is a “Timer” feature that allows you to schedule when the robotic pool cleaner cleans your pool. There are three settings for this Timer feature.

– Every Day. Obviously, this tells the device to clean your pool every day.
– Every other day. This tells your robotic pool cleaner to clean every other day, rather than every day.
– And, finally, Every third day, which is similar to the others, but for every 3rd day.

Using a technology known as “CleverClean”, a series of pathways will be created. These pathways are used in order to maximize the cleaning that is taking place, and to ensure that it is efficient and precise.

CleverClean is powered by a variety of algorithms. These algorithms use the information that the individual sensors provide, to make various calculations as the robotic pool cleaner cleans.

As these pathways are being created, and after they have been, the devices active brushing system will be in full effect. Regardless of whether you’re cleaning the floors of your pool, or the walls, this scrubbing system is incredibly effective. According to Maytronics, the scrub brushes they have put on the bottom of this device offer 2-times the scrubbing power, in comparison to other robotic pool cleaners.

This scrubbing system removes lots of smaller debris, as well as bigger debris. However, it can’t remove that much bigger debris, so it’s mostly used to remove smaller pieces of debris, due to the size of the robotic pool cleaner and the size of the scrubbers, too.

When the cleaning process has been completed, the Dolphin Nautilus CC will go back up to the surface. All of the dirt and debris can be found in the top of the device. Specifically, in the filter basket. You can simply unlatch it, and then you will have access to everything that was cleaned. Then, you can take that dirt and debris and dump it into your garbage.

Unlike other Dolphin models, the Dolphin Nautilus CC only offers one filtration type; Fine. Others offer Fine and Ultra-Fine. For some, this is a bit disappointing, since it does limit the types of debris you can pick up, and it can be a bit inconvenient.

Ultimately, the lack of flexibility when it comes to filtration, and the hefty price tag, are the two biggest flaws that the Dolphin Nautilus CC presents.
