"Dolphin Premier robotic pool cleaner is the best robotic pool cleaner you can buy"

Rated as the Best Pool Robot for 2024 by USA Today, Dolphin Premier keeps the tried and true while embracing innovation. The instantly recognizable design stands alone as the one and only robot with Multi-Media™ Filtration. Both inside and out, the newest Premier is the flagship of what’s technically possible.

The Tile & Waterline Expert

Over 90% of bacteria and algae in a typical pool is attached to the wall, with the highest concentration found where the water stops on the wall. You may have heard this problematic area referred to as the scum line. This area just above and below the waterline is known to harbor the heaviest concentration of bacteria, algae, and biofilm. In the past, pool robots advertised as wall cleaning only cleaned the lower wall. They’re simply not capable of reaching the upper wall and tile line.

Dolphin Engineers firmly believe in the laws of physics. And defying them time and time again. To enable Premier to climb to the hard-to-reach waterline, Dolphin engineers gave Premier Vector Climbing. You may have noticed unique dual stabilizers that gives Premier it’s friendly, approachable look. But it’s not for looks. This ProLine™ feature is the secret to maintaining position on the upper pool wall. Premier attaches to the wall and maintains position, even with up to 40% of the robot above the water. The result is an engineering milestone and a whole new level of tile and waterline performance never before seen in a pool robot.

Dolphin Multimedia

Customize Any Clean.
Multi-Media™ is Standard.

Now you can choose the exact, right media for any job. Want to clean fine debris and algae that passes through other pool cleaners? Go NanoFilter™. Need to pick up a bushel of leaves? Go over-sized debris bag. How many robotic pool cleaners offer Multiedia? Exactly one...only Dolphin Premier pool cleaners.

One of the latest innovations from Dolphin is Multi-Media™. Most robotic pool cleaners settle for one type of filter media. But different kinds of debris call for different types of media. For the first time ever, you don’t have to compromise. Want to clean fine debris and algae that other robots would miss? Use the NanoFilter™. Need to pick up a bushel of leaves? Use oversized leaf bag. There’s even a disposable bag option for those who prefer not to clean anything at all.

The Most Advanced Filters Ever.

Advanced Filtration for the Modern Pool. Every Premier includes NanoFilters™ - as they are standard on all ProLine™ pool robots. These filters capture more than the standard filters on other robotic pool cleaners and are found only on the most powerful robots in the Dolphin product range.

Under the lens of a powerful microscope, the Nanofilter's micro-pore spun-bonded polyester fabric reveals a captivating tapestry of intersecting fibers. This intricate mesh allows water to flow freely while effectively trapping minuscule particles. With its deep pleats and impressive gunk-trapping capabilities, the Nanofilter stands out from the crowd. Furthermore, its pleated design offers a significant advantage—a larger surface area for capturing a greater volume of waterborne impurities, all while maintaining optimal water flow.

Cleaning Made Easy.

The Only Dolphin with a Leaf Bag.

Dolphin Leaf Bag

Larger ProLine™ Motors

The efficiency of the Premier does not compromise power. Dolphin engineers gave Premier larger, more powerful motors borrowed from the commercial line of robots. These heavy duty ProLine™ motors are 20% larger, providing the powerful suction force needed for larger debris. Prone to slip and wear out prematurely, drive belts have been replaced with a new direct drive system. Ordinary wheels have been replaced by HyperGrip™ dual tracks. These high performance rubber tracks reduce slippage up to 40% and help take efficiency to a whole new level. Watch Premier’s powerful dual motors at work when it cleans the waterline. To effectively scrub this area, the cleaner must have enough power to rise above the waterline while maintaining contact with the wall. While some cleaners only vacuum loose debris, Premier scrubs and cleans the pool surface with two powerful spinning brushes - dislodging dirt, debris, biofilm and other contaminants. More power enables a whole new level cleaning.

No More Knots.
Anti-Tangle Swivel

You don’t need to be an engineer to understand the benefits of tangle-free operation. A swivel ensures that your cable won’t get tangled or knotted, so you can put the best robotic pool cleaner in your pool and not have to monitor it. What other robotic pool cleaner company offers a swivel? Only Premier Dolphin pool cleaners. It's no wonder our pool experts rated the Dolphin Premier the best robotic pool cleaner for 2024.

Dolphin Anti-Tangle Swivel
Dolphin Smart Navigation

Powered by
SmartNav 2.0™

When you unleash the Dolphin Premier automatic pool cleaner into your pool, it finds the fastest, most thorough path and cleans it with unparalleled precision. Smart-Nav software scans and calculates the optimal pattern for faster cleaning and improved efficiency. With the ability to sense ladders and drains, Dolphin pool cleaners won't get hung up like ordinary cleaners. Microprocessor controlled pool scanning makes the Dolphin Premier deliver a smarter pool cleaning experience.

It’s no secret that intelligent robots are the future. That’s why Dolphin engineers developed SmartNav™ technology. Unlike ordinary pool cleaners that wander around the pool aimlessly, Premier is smart and logical. With microprocessor controlled SmartNav, the optimal pattern is calculated for faster cleaning and better efficiency. If you would rather take control, choose the optional wireless remote control. Great for spot cleaning and fun, the wireless remote provides hours of entertainment for both kids and kids at heart.

Programmable Weekly Timer
With Media-Alert™

Premier requires just 3 hours for a complete cleaning cycle. For most pools, there’s no need to run Premier every day - 2-3 times per week is all it takes.

MediaAlert™'s real-time filter tracking monitors the onboard media and flashes an LED light when Premier's filter is at capacity. This indicator light lets you know when it’s time to clean Premier’s filters it can get back to work quickly. Some entry level robots require you to manually turn your robot on. Premier’s weekly smart timer turns Premier on and off automatically at the desired frequency – whether that’s daily, twice a week, or three times a week.

All Conditions

Wheels aren’t going to cut it. In pool water, it is easy for wheels to slip resulting in wasted energy and poor performance. The HyperGrip track system is designed to scale the walls of your pool with unmatched agility. The much greater surface area of a rubber track improves directional control and delivers substantially more force than wheels. The Premier pool robot features aggressive rubber tracks for superior power delivery, better control and precise tracking. When wheel slippage is eliminated, energy is conserved.

Best-In-Class 3-Year Warranty

Premier’s warranty is up to 50% longer than mid-level robots. The best pool robot has the best warranty. The Dolphin 3 Year no-nonsense warranty is for 3 years, is not pro-rated, and is not limited to hours or cycles. It’s hands down the best warranty in the industry to protect your pool-cleaning investment.

Greater than the Sum of It's Parts

Efficient performance is not a trend at Dolphin; it’s a way of thinking. That was the principle then. And it still stands today.

Marc Bach - 5 Stars

Forget the in line cleaners running off your pump. Had three over the last ten years, they all failed horribly. Just bought the Dolphin Premier, Ferb, and will never buying anything but a Dolphin from here out. Why? Algae...since we were not at the house as often as we like, the gunite pool developes a lot of algae once opened. So tired of the pool guys just dumping in DE, and shock. So, decided to buy a Dolphin Premier, after going down the rabbit hole of pool cleaners on the internet. Dropped in Ferb and watched him disappear into the green soup in the pool. He stopped pretty quick and I thought, crap... Pulled him back up, opened the bottom, the bag was full of algae, like thick, gooey, green gunk. Cleaned the bag, super easy, put Ferb back in, ran longer, same ton of algea. Must of ran Ferb ten times that weekend, each one ran longer and longer. End result? No Algae! Zero, nadda, nilch! Next morning pool was crystal clear. Has been all summer. The pool has never looked better. Beyond my algae saga, Ferb cleans so well. Sturdy, easy to clean, great additional filters, climbs both walls and steps, long hose that doesnt get twisted, super easy to use, seems really well engineered. Keep trying to think of its weak link, haven't found one. This is simply the best pool cleaner...period. And the Poolbots Team are aces! Really appreciate pros who clearly like what they do!

Marc Bach - 5 Stars

Outstanding tool. Cleans our 40 ft, 20K gallon diving pool in less than 2 hrs. Typically run it 2-3 times a week.

Charlie - 5 Stars

This thing sucks the crud right out of my pool

Aimee E. Maschhoff - 5 Stars

This vacuum works like a charm! It's keeping the pool extra clean. Very easy to use. It's a little heavy when taking it out, so move slowly so that the water can drain. Then it comes out easily. We got the cart, which I highly recommend as it makes it so easy to move in/out of the pool house. Super happy with this so far.

Mike Wald - 5 Stars

I've owned this specific unit for 4 years now. In one word, awesome!!! Gets better every time I use it. This is the first pool I've owned and can't imagine the upkeep without it. Haven't had any issues to date. Highly recommend!
