The overall performance and the advanced features of this robot will take pool cleaning to the next level. You will love its ease of use, durable design, and the included accessories.
Highly productive, Maytronics’ Dolphin Oasis Z5, transforms the drag which is the pool-cleaning chore into a pleasant experience. With a streamlined design, it requires no additional connection to skimmers, filters, or pumps, as it is fully able to function on its own. Equipped with all the necessary abilities to keep the dirt and grime away, it will swiftly transform a dirt basin into a crystal clear oasis.
Its sturdy built might seem a bit intimidating at first, as it was created to resemble an underwater tank, but it will prove its usefulness through the years to come as it offers a long life span. It can accommodate various water temperatures, thus the robot can be employed in both cold and heated pools – regardless of the heating method. Although its size isn’t that large, 20” by 15” by 15”, its weight might prove to be a little too much for some users, so the unit includes a caddy. This will act not only as a means of transportation but also as a perfect storage area, so your equipment enclosure will never get cluttered.
When taken away from the caddy, the unit sports a top placed handle, which offers the support and stability you need for a secure grip over it. The handle is flexible, as it doesn’t only folds, but it also moves forward and backward, offering its users the ability to lock it in a diagonal position as well. Compatible with several pool textures, the uninterrupted tracks ensure there will be no marks left on the basin’s floor, nor will the texture be damaged in any way. Moreover, it assures the robot has enough grip to escalate on vertical surfaces, as well the required stability to never fall to the side.
To thoroughly clean the area it utilizes dual split brushes which are situated at the front as well as the rear of the unit. They actively rotate when the unit moves, so they will swiftly dislodge any stuck grime. Moreover, the bristles are plated which means they won’t scratch the surface but will in turn remove twice the amount of stubborn goo compared to other types of brushes. So, there’s no need to engage in manual brushing or sweeping as the robot will do it for you.
Once the dirt has been caught it is forced upwards, to the double debris chambers. They are lined with filter cartridges of fine porosity, so particles as little as 2 microns are unable to return into the water. In case you wish to exchange them for ultra-fine porosity, a secondary pair of cartridges is provided in the box, together with the unit.
The CleverClean navigation system will actively scan the area, mapping the pool’s shape and calculating the fastest route for an efficient clean. It also detects and recognizes drains apart from possible underwater obstacles, ensuring the former are also cleansed whereas the latter is avoided. The long 60’ cable also provides a long reach, guaranteeing the unit is perfect for pools that reach even 50’ in length. Also, due to the swivel ability, it will remain untangled throughout the operation, ensuring no floats or water toys will get in its way.
To provide each user with the ability to personalize the cleaning procedure, the robot has two cleaning modes, a fast one that lasts 1.5 hours but cares only for the floor, and a standard one which expands the cleaning area to the walls and waterline, removing deposits in 2.5 hours. Therefore, depending on how dirty the pool is, with just a push of a button you can easily switch between them. Also, if you consider the unit might have missed a spot, the remote control allows you to manually move the unit exactly to the core of the problem.
The incorporated double DC motor makes the unit an economic choice, as they ensure better traction, strong grip as well as faster cleaning. And with just 5 cents per hour, it won’t raise the electricity bill either. Even more, the unit offers a filtration rate of 2450 PGH, meaning that it will also disperse and evenly distribute the chemicals present in the water, saving money in the long run. Additionally, this will improve water circulation resulting in proper water balance.
Thanks to the modular design, few parts might need your attention, as the unit was constructed with long-lasting utilization in mind. The brushes might get worn out with time, the bristles shortening in direct proportion to how often you use the device. But they are easily replaceable, so there’s no need to worry. Additionally, the cartridges require frequent cleaning, with a recommendation of a thorough rinse after every utilization to prevent bacteria from taking over them, or deposits to form. Also keep an eye on the water chemicals, to ensure proper balance in maintained before attempting to use the robot. High alkalinity and pH levels will deteriorate the casing and filters, whereas concentrated chlorine as well as odd colored water, will lead to faulty operation. For the manufacturer, each unit and its performance is highly important, so it also covers it for 3 years with a full warranty. Also, in case you need just minor assistance, the customer support line is highly responsive, so it will aid you in taking care of the problem.
All in all, Dolphin Oasis Z5 offers all the necessary functions for a spotless, sparkly clean pool. The plug-and-play operation offers peace of mind, whereas its caddy and remote control offer increased convenience. With two cleaning modes to choose to, you can easily alternate between them, indifferent to what state the pool is in.
