Can you leave the Dolphin in the water? It is safe to leave your Dolphin cleaner in the water when not in use. However, (when adding chemicals to the pool) please remove the Dolphin until the proper chlorine and PH balance are obtained.
Considering this, how often should a pool be vacuumed?
In general, it’s a good idea to vacuum your pool once a week. You should also vacuum your swimming pool any time you notice large amounts of debris, dirt, or leaves on the floor of the pool (for example, your pool may need vacuuming after a heavy storm).
One may also ask, can you swim with a vacuum in the pool?
Increases Wear and Tear. You can swim while your bot cleans the pool, but it’s better not to. Swimming churns up the water. If the machine is in the water at the time, the current will buffet it, making it harder for it to complete its work.
Can you use an extension cord with dolphin pool cleaner?
Dolphin does not recommend an extension cord.
Leaving the cleaner in the pool 24/7 increases its exposure to corrosive chemicals in the water, such as chlorine or shock. Over time, these chemicals break down parts in the cleaner and discolor the cleaner. The truth of the matter is – everyone leaves them in the pool, pretty much all the time.
Robotic cleaners are effective at cleaning large and small debris. They also circulate the pool water when your filter isn’t running and scrub your tile lines and pool wall. Powered by an electric motor and pump, robotic cleaners connect to a low-voltage transformer that plugs into one of your outdoor outlets.
Ideally, you need to run your robot pool cleaner daily or at least once a day if you’re always swimming in it. But if you don’t swim in it as much, run it at least once weekly or every two weeks. When you’re using a swimming pool cover all the time, you may wash your pool monthly.
Generally, you can expect at least 5 years‘ service from your quality robotic pool cleaner. The more expensive units are generally better quality – you do get what you pay for.
What causes automatic pool cleaners to flip or do wheelies? The water level in a pool is one of the most common causes for this problem. When the water level is too high, the water line is very close to the coping. So when the cleaner starts to climb the wall, it hits the coping and flips on to its back.
