What to expect of the Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus Pool Cleaner?

Smart Navigation

With the latest CleverClean or CC technology, Nautilus Plus recognizes the obstacles nearby, like pool steps and drains. It takes the most efficient route of cleaning the entire pool area. It goes around obstacles after knowing it through its navigation system. It even learns the whole pool’s layout to map out the best possible cleaning route and method it needs to take.

However, as its user, you don’t have any means of controlling it externally. No apps or remote control connects to the navigation system of the Nautilus CC Plus. It heavily relies on its CleverClean technology for navigation.

One of the issues regarding its navigation system is that it did not clean the pool area’s waterline. Few people also reported that the Nautilus CC Plus was not able to clean the pool steps.

Filtration System

The Nautilus CC Plus has a four net, and panel filtration system made for fine and ultra-fine dust and debris. This feature of Nautilus CC Plus allows it to separate large materials from ultra-fine waste. The first filter traps leaves, bugs, and other large materials, while the ultra-fine filter traps dust, dirt, and other particles.

Other pool robots use jets that expulse water to move; however, it pushed the dirt and debris to the pool’s corners. Customers commented on the upgrade with the CC Plus, where water comes through the bottom and exits at the top. This leaves the debris ready for cleaning.

Swivel cable

Like other robotic pool cleaners, its long cables do not get tangled even after reaching the depths of the pool. With the new Nautilus CC Plus, it can also detangle its long cord with its advanced software with swivel. The swivel cable rotates with the Nautilus CC Plus to prevent any tangling as the machine moves.

The cable also has a buoy on its cord to help prevent any tangling by lifting it during the whole cleaning cycle. This is the feature of Nautilus CC Plus that differs it from its older version of Nautilus CC.

However, with the upgrade to a swivel cable, some customers gave feedback that the cable was too short. They said that they had to move the cord nearer to the machine to reach all parts of the pool area.

 Now, with these features, it’s up to you what is the best Dolphin pool cleaner that suits their needs and taste.

Dual Scrubbing Brushes

The Nautilus CC Plus has rubber-bladed brushes with high-speed scrubbing as the pool cleaner moves across the area. The dual brushes quickly remove any marks and stains on the pool’s surface. The big and small scrubs work together to clean any debris size the Nautilus CC Plus will find.

You can buy reserve brushes if your current brushes get worn out after months of use. Some clients have complained that their standard scrubbers did not last for a year after they have bought it. So even for its low price, some still spent more than the others for the replacement brushes.

Automatic Scheduling

Just like the Nautilus CC, Nautilus Plus has a programmable timer for a weekly cleaning routine. It has three settings that let you pick whether you want to clean once, twice, or thrice a week. This feature allows owners to rest for approximately two hours while the machine goes to cleaning.

Some buyers have reported that after minutes of starting its assigned automatic cleaning, the Nautilus CC Plus stops midway. Its light is still on, but it doesn’t move at all, which wastes energy.

Positive Feedback

For its price of $779, Nautilus CC Plus surprised its buyers with its efficiency in cleaning. Some even claimed that it cleaned better than more expensive robotic pool cleaners. The top-loading cartridge filters received most of the compliments. They were very easy to remove since it is top-loaded and easily cleaned using a garden hose.

Its ability to climb walls and other vertical surfaces was also a plus for the clients. For some instances, the machine even cleaned the waterlines and pool steps. Its CleverClean technology helped in navigating the entire pool area and avoiding bumps, especially the drain.

Negative Feedback

Owners of pool with up to almost 50 feet of pool area claimed that it required two to three rounds of cleaning before seeing a good result. Weekly timer commands the cleaner to do its job at the specified time, but some machines did not respond to the assignment. The manufacturer instructed its buyers to keep the cleaner in a caddy when not in use, but no caddy comes with the machine.

Other customers reported that the Nautilus CC Plus missed the waterline and the pool steps. Some even reported that the robotic pool cleaner would get stuck to places at small bumps or obstacles.
