Dolphin Escape Review

Dive into how the Dolphin Escape performs, its features, what's included, and how it works in our in-depth review. With years of experince in the pool industry, let us help find you the perfect pool robot.

What You Need To Know About The
Dolphin Escape

  • MaxBin™ is larger and easier to clean than filter cartridges
  • FREE NanoFilters with purchase using code at checkout: DEEPCLEAN23
  • HyperBrush - Scrubs 2X the speed of standard Dolphin robots
  • SmartNav 2.0 - Advanced microprocessor enables a deeper cleaning performance

What features does it have?

Wall Climbing

Clean like a pro. With wall coverage, the Dolphin Escape can clean and scale your walls with precision and power. While Wall Climbing is a great feature, don't get this confused with the superior waterline cleaning feature.

What is Dolphin Escape missing?

Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin E70 Waterline Cleaning
Dolphin Explorer E70's Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin Escape does not included waterline cleaning. Not only is this an essential feature that you'll want when looking for a pool robot, but one you will likely need. Waterline cleaning enables the robot to climb and reach the dirtest part of your swimming pool. Without this feature, you'll still need to manually clean your waterline by hand with a brush to prevent any algae or scum that builds up. It is one feature that you'll need that is not included with the Dolphin Escape.

Leaf Bag

Dolphin Premier Leaf Bag
Dolphin Premier's EXCLUSIVE Oversized Leaf Bag

With leaves being a common issue, it would be safe to assume most pool robots utilize a leaf bag. Well, no so fast. Nearly every robotic pool cleaner is missing a leaf bag, except the Dolphin Premier. If you have a lot of leaves, this is the best pool robot for leaves. Not to mention the Premier's 3 year warranty, Dual Commercial Motors, and Multi-Media™ make it one of the best models of 2023.

What's included with the Dolphin Escape?

The Dolphin Escape includes everything you'll need. Here is what is included with the unit:

  • Dolphin Escape Unit
  • 40 ft Cord
  • Programmable Weekly Timer
  • Standard Filters
  • 2 Year Warranty

How to set up the Dolphin Escape

Simply plug and play. All robotic pool cleaners are ready to go right out of the box. No booster pump or assembly needed. The Escape has everything needed to get started in its box. It's that easy.
