Dolphin Quantum Robotic Pool Cleaner Review
Touted as the answer to the needs of virtually all pool owners everywhere, the Dolphin Quantum Robotic Inground Pool Cleaner takes its place at the top echelons of robotic pool cleaners with its groundbreaking PowerJet3D Mobility and a level of efficiency never seen before. It can effectively clean gunite, tile, concrete, vinyl or fiberglass pools and is competitively priced. While this makes it one of the higher priced models on the market, you will get value for every dollar you spend given the cleaner’s durability, reliability and superior performance.
How does the Dolphin Quantum work?
The Dolphin Quantum Robotic Pool Cleaner was designed for pools measuring up to 60 feet long. It is equipped with PowerJet 3D Mobility that gives the robot precise control that allows it to move at extreme angles and even laterally on walls to ensure that every inch of your pool’s floor and walls are thoroughly cleaned. The robot maintains a constant grip on vertical surfaces throughout the cleaning process to provide superior wall and tile line cleaning.
This Quantum employs 3 jet nozzles that deliver a range of motion that ordinary pool robots cannot match using vectored thrust. As it climbs the wall, 3 jet nozzles create a powerful force as a stream of fast moving water is expelled in up to 3 directions. Thrust vector control provides ultimate maneuverability, improving navigation accuracy and making it possible for the robot to escape and avoid obstacles.
This model also features a filter cartridge capable of filtering 4500 gallons of water per hour.
What are the Dolphin Quantum Features?
This robotic leaner boasts inner traction that enables sit to climb and clean the pool’s steps, while the multi-directional water flow provided by the PowerJet 3D Mobility feature ensures that it keeps a constant grip on surfaces and deliver an amazing range of motion using vectored thrust. The HyperBrush dual scrubbing brushes it uses scrub 2 times faster than traditional brushes to dislodge even the most stubborn contaminants.
To ensure that every inch of your pool is cleaned and avoid repeating the same surfaces, the device feature the innovative Smartav 2.0 technology whose revolutionary mapping system tells the Quantum where it has and hasn’t been to avoid overlapping cleaning paths, thus saving on cleaning time.
The Dolphin Quantum Robotic Inground Pool Cleaner is 22 inches long, 128 inches high and has a width of 13 inches. At 27 lbs, it was designed with innovative lightweight materials that make getting this robotic pool cleaner out of the pool a breeze after it is through cleaning. The wheels feature rubber tracks than easily glide over obstacles and provide superior directional control to allow the robot to operate at it full capacity. It is powered via a 60 foot thermoplastic, anti-tangle cable designed to reduce frictional drag.

Energy consumption-wise, this model operates on almost 90 percent less energy than the suction and pressure side cleaners, consuming 180 watts. This means that only consumes 5 cents worth of electricity per hour when n operation.
The SmartNav 2.0 technology maps the pool and plots the most efficient cleaning pattern to ensure that the job gets done within the shortest time possible. This means that it will consume as little energy as possible. Moreover, the fact that it comes with a programmable weekly time ensures that will only clean when you set it.
