What You Need To Know About The
Dolphin Explorer E30

  • Weaker Suction - Does not utilize the larger, commercial-grade motors that filter up to 500 GPH more that are found on the Dolphin Sigma and Dolphin Premier
  • No NanoFilters™ - Cannot clean smaller debris and algae
  • Overshadowed by the newer Gen 2 models with more features - such as the ProLine and Max-Series
  • Shorter Warranty - Shorter warranty compared to the Dolphin ProLine

Explorer E30 is missing...

Dolphin Dual Motors

Lower Suction Power

The Explorer E30 uses the standard motors, rather than utilizing the more powerful, commercial-grade motors found on the ProLine™ which filter an extra 500 GPH+.

Dolphin Multi-Media

No Multi-Media

The Explorer E30 doesn't have Multi-Media™. Multi-Media™ allows a robot to swap between filter options in seconds. Multi-Media™ is exclusively found on the Dolphin Premier.

What features does it have?

Wall Climbing

Clean like a pro. With wall coverage, the Dolphin Explorer E30 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 Explorer E30 missing?

Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin E70 Waterline Cleaning
Dolphin Explorer E70's Waterline Cleaning

Dolphin Explorer E30 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 E30.

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 E30?

The Dolphin Explorer E30 includes everything you'll need. Here is what is included with the unit:

  • Dolphin Explorer E30 Unit
  • 60 ft Cord with Anti-Tangle Swivel
  • Programmable Weekly Timer
  • Standard Filters
  • 2 Year Warranty

How to set up the Dolphin Explorer E30

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 E30 has everything needed to get started in its box. It's that easy.
