Dolphin Triton Plus Robotic Pool Cleaner Review
The Dolphin Triton Plus (PowerStream) is a highly capable pool cleaner by Maytronics. It is prized for being lightweight and very easy to use. This is easily one of the better options in the market for in-ground private/residential pools with a length of up to 50 feet.
The bot is equipped with a PowerStream system that enables it climb walls with ease. Multiple water jets provide ample traction on vertical surfaces. Thus, the Triton Plus has the ability to scrub the walls as well as the waterline. Actually, it also cleans a little bit above the waterline!
Dolphin Triton Plus Features:
- Hosting an impromptu party by the pool? No problem, the Triton Plus has a very fast cleaning cycle of just 1 hour. There is a choice of 2 cleaning cycles – quick and standard. The quick cycle takes up an hour while a standard clean takes up 2 hours.
- The Triton Plus weighs just 16.5 pounds and its ergonomic design makes it easy to carry and lift out of the water.
- Energy efficient multi-function power supply.
- Can be scheduled to clean everyday, every alternate day or every third day depending upon how much the pool is used. The bot can stay in water 24x7 so it just cleans the pool at the scheduled time. There’s no need to start it manually for each and every cycle. However, it is advisable to rinse out the filters every once in a while.
- The Triton plus saves 8 times more energy than run-off-the-mill pressure and suction pool cleaners. This can save thousands of dollars in power bills in the long run.
- The Triton Plus has been endowed with 2x Active Brushing. The front brush spins twice as fast as standard brushes to eliminate even the most unyielding dirt and stains. According to Maytronics, the Dolphin Triton and Triton Plus are among the first pool cleaning robots in the world to possess this special feature.
- CleverClean technology ensures precise navigation in pools of virtually every shape.

The Dolphin Triton Plus is undoubtedly a highly accomplished machine with all the bells and whistles of a top end pool cleaning bot.
It’s lightning fast cleaning cycle of just 1 hour helps it to score brownie points.
However, there is absolutely no getting around the fact that this pool cleaner is expensive.
We recommend that you go ahead and buy it if it falls within your budget.
If you can live without the Bluetooth remote control app, you can opt for the cheaper Dolphin Triton as it is mechanically identical to the Triton Plus minus the smartphone connectivity.
Editors Note: You may also want to consider the Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus as it is a bestselling model with tremendous customer feedback.
