As a pool owner, you’re already tired of all the maintenance work that has to be done for the pool to be safe for use.

Being manufactured by Maytronics, which is an industry leader for over 30 years, you can rest assured that your money will be well spent on it. This model is designed for in-ground pools of all types which measure up to 60 feet in length. If you want to learn more about the pool cleaner’s performance, design, and features, continue to read this review.

Cleaning Performance

This robotic pool cleaner isn’t like other conventional models on the market when it comes to the design of its wheels. This model features continuous rubber tracks that give it enhanced stability and that maintain constant contact on even the slipperiest of surfaces. These tracks give it greater force and they improve directional control as well. Also, they allow the Dolphin Quantum to glide smoothly over obstacles and they enhance the robot’s ability to climb vertical walls. This model doesn’t have any trouble when it comes to climbing steps. It can thoroughly clean the floor, walls, and waterline of the pool with ease. A complete cleaning cycle for a pool that measures up to 60 feet in length will be finished in about 2 hours. It features a programmable weekly timer that allows you to set the robot pool cleaner to automatically run only when you need it. The PowerJet 3D mobility technology that it features enables it to avoid obstacles with ease. The SmartNav 2.0 technology guides it to thoroughly clean the entire pool without going over the same part of the pool twice. Also, it scans the pool and calculates the shortest path to clean it in order to save time and energy. The powerful HyperBrush dual scrubbing technology that it comes with is highly efficient against microorganisms of all kinds that reside in the pool. Also, the brush is two times faster than traditional brushes. Besides the powerful HyperBrush, it features an additional brush in the back that ensures no dirt or debris will be left behind.

Design and accessories

The innovative design of the product makes it look futuristic, being the perfect addition to your collection of modern devices and appliances for home use. It measures 22 inches in length, 18 inches in height, and 13 inches in width. It weighs only 27.2 pounds due to the lightweight materials that are used in its fabrication, so pulling the device out of the pool will be extremely easy. It comes with an anti-tangle 60-foot long cable that is made with thermoplastic rubber. Therefore, the cable will reduce frictional drag and it won’t get tangled either. This model might lack a separate transport caddy, but it comes with a convenient carry handle that is located near the front of the unit. This allows for easy handling, making it easy to store and transport the pool cleaner.

Ease of use

As we have already mentioned, the Dolphin Quantum doesn’t come with a separate transport caddy, but it does feature a built-in carry handle located near the front of the unit. The carry handle makes it easy to both transport and store the unit. If you want to have the transport caddy as well, you must purchase it separately for the price of around $140. The Exoskelet minimalist architecture of the cleaner and the fact that it features a fast water release system ensures that it will be a breeze to remove the excess weight of the robot in order to take it out of the water and transport it easily. It features a 400 square inch cartridge filter that is extremely easy to take out and clean. This is all due to the SnapLoc technology that allows you to simply snap apart the four sides of the filter in order to take it out fast and clean it. Unfortunately, unlike other units on the market, this model doesn’t come with a remote control. Also, it lacks a lift system, which means that the cleaner won’t get out of the water on its own, but rather that you will have to get it out of the water.

Operating costs

What makes it a great deal despite the fact that it costs a little over $1000 to purchase it is the fact that it consumes about 180W to operate. This makes it about 90% more efficient than other types of pool cleaners on the market. Also, it means that the robot pool cleaner consumes only 5 cents per hour when it operates. Of course, for this model to consume so little energy, it uses its many innovative energy-saving features. First of all, the SmartNav 2.0 technology that it features ensures that the entire pool will be thoroughly cleaned while keeping costs low. This technology scans the entire pool before proceeding to clean it, calculating the shortest and fastest cleaning pattern to follow. Also, it features rubber tracks that ensure it won’t slip on the surfaces of the pool when it cleans them, so it won’t waste any time and energy while cleaning the pool due to them.

Warranty and Support

The Dolphin Quantum is backed by a 2-year warranty. You can try the product out for 30 days. If you’re not 100% satisfied with it during the trial period, you can return it and receive the money spent on it back. In case you’re facing difficulties using the device, check the online manual for information regarding its operation. Also, you can contact customer support for any information about the device or get assistance if something happens to it by simply calling the telephone number listed on the manufacturer’s website, or sending an e-mail to the address that you find on the website.

Final Thoughts

If you own a large sized pool, one that measures up to 60 feet in length, the Quantum robotic pool cleaner produced by Dolphin can prove to be the best option for you to go with. Just as expected from a high-end pool cleaning device, it comes with numerous features that ensure it will be able to effectively clean every inch of the pool, thus, taking this chore off of your hands completely. Unlike other models out there, it doesn’t get stuck when encountering objects along the way but rather effectively avoids them due to the PowerJet 3D mobility technology that it comes with.

The low operational costs ensure that you will actually save money in the long run by using it as it will not only spare the filtration system of the pool from working hard, but it will reduce chemical costs for cleaning the pool as well. In addition, it features what most experts consider to be the best and most innovative technology of the moment, more precisely the SmartNav 2.0 technology that ensures the pool cleaner won’t pass over the same part of the pool twice and that it will be able to calculate the shortest cleaning route before it starts operating.
