Missing Commercial-Grade Motors

The Explorer E20 uses the standard motors, rather than utilizing the more powerful, commercial-grade motors found on the ProLine™

No Waterline Cleaning

What features does it have?

What is Dolphin Explorer E20 missing?

Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin E70 Waterline Cleaning
Dolphin Explorer E70's Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin Explorer E20 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 Explorer E20.

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 Explorer E20?

The Dolphin Explorer E20 includes everything you'll need. Here is what is included with the unit:

  • Dolphin Explorer E20 Unit
  • 50 ft Cord
  • Programmable Weekly Timer
  • Standard Filters
  • 2 Year Warranty

How to set up the Dolphin Explorer E20

Simply plug and play. All robotic pool cleaners are ready to go right out of the box. No booster pump or assembly needed. The Explorer E20 has everything needed to get started in its box. It's that easy.
