What to Expect of the Dolphin Triton PS Robotic Pool Cleaner?

Scrubbing Ability

Powered by PowerStream technology, the Triton has a strong grip that easily enables it to clean walls and other vertical surfaces. It shoots out water in different directions simultaneously to propel itself horizontally, and vertically. It scrubs every pool tile without leaving any dirt marks. You don’t need any manual brushing every time the pool surfaces get dirty.

It also has two scrubbers that you can rely on – a high-speed front scrubber and standard back scrubber. They always remove dirt, algae, or whatever contaminant is on the route of the Triton. With its front and back scrubbers, it ensures that every part of the pool’s surface is clean.

However, buyers reported that it did not clean much of the pool’s steps. The Triton may topple and fall just like other pool cleaners due to a change of surface texture and shape.

Top-loading Filter Basket

The Dolphin Triton’s huge top-loading basket filters leaves, debris, and even dirt. It is large, so you don’t have to worry about cleaning the filter basket daily. It is an ideal robotic pool cleaner for residential pool areas. The dirt trapped in the filter basket can be easily removed since the basket is at the top of the Triton pool cleaner.

You can also clean the filter basket easily since it is top-loaded. With the use of a garden hose, clean the filters quickly and put it back into the water. Quick and easy.

The top-loading filter basket did not have many issues since debris was easily removable, and filters were easy to clean.

Water-Release System

After finishing its cleaning cycle, you can remove the water in the Triton pool cleaner with its quick-release system. You don’t have to worry about debris going back into the water since Triton secures all waste and dirt collected in the filter.

Energy-Saving Cleaner

Ordinary pool cleaners use suctions and pool cleaners to help them fully clean the pool area. It can clean a standard pool within two hours of the cleaning cycle and no dirt marks would remain. It also saves you from doing weekly manual cleaning using brushes.

Weekly Scheduling

Another unique feature of the Dolphin Triton is its weekly scheduler. It allows pool owners to schedule the automatic cleaning of Triton daily, twice a week, or thrice a week, depending on your pool use. The Dolphin Triton pool cleaner will do its job on its own when the assigned schedule arrives.

The scheduler is easy to use

Easy to use

With its product weight of 16.5 pounds, the Dolphin Triton is one of the lightest robotic pool cleaners out there. You can easily position this machine at any pool that you want to get cleaned first without any hassle. Press the start button, and it’s ready to do its job.

Its long cable that reaches 60 feet is enough for it not to get tangled and continue without worries. The Triton has an anti-tangle swivel cord that allows the robot to twist and turn while preventing any tangling freely.

Positive Feedback

Customers mostly complimented the Triton’s large top-loading basket. An easily accessible filter is an essential part of being a robotic pool cleaner since it cleans immediately. It is an effective in-ground pool cleaner, as commented by tons of users. Some of the five-star reviewers said that the Triton took its time in cleaning the tile lines, which made it better.

Others enjoyed the weekly scheduler that helped them get free time every week instead of cleaning their pools. The robotic cleaner is easy to clean and maintain, so they recommend it to be a good pool cleaner. Its tank-like wheels also helped the Triton get praises. It moved along pool walls and floor and moved through small obstacles.

Negative Feedback

Some of the Triton owners claimed that their cleaner stopped working after 15 to 20 minutes of cleaning even though its light is on. Some even reported that it sometimes moved aimlessly and did not do any smart scanning of the pool area. 

The start button and other buttons on its control panel do not work as it should. One of the reviewers reported that the Triton pool cleaner did not work on low temperatures during fall and winter. It only worked on warm temperatures during the spring and summer. Lastly, a customer gave feedback that the silt collected by the Triton keeps clogging, and eventually, the machine would stop working.
