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.
The easiest and most fun way to get the robot out of the water:
- Log into the MyDolphin™ Plus app and click “Pick-up mode”.
- The robot will reach the wall closest to it, and will rise, and will wait for 3 minutes above the water surface.
- Grab the robot by the handle and pull it out the water.
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.
