Dolphin Escape Robotic Above Ground Pool Cleaner Review

Pros, Cons, and Verdict

Dolphin Escape Robotic

Above Ground Pool Cleaner


Sleek design for above ground pools

No messy bags! Extended oversized debris cartridge

  • The lengthy power cord is 40 feet long
  • Two strong scrubbing brushes which can quickly eliminate contaminants, dust, and dirt.
  • Large debris can be stored in the extra-large cartridge.
  • No remote control

A 24-volt DC motor is included with the Dolphin Escape. This provides the necessary power to eliminate algae and dirt very easily. The frame is lightweight and ergonomic, which gives it the ability to clean pools fast and efficiently.

The cleaner comes with a 40-foot power cord that will not tangle. This makes it easier to operate. When the cleaner climbs the walls, it has rubber tracks which manage the climbing just fine. If that’s not good enough, then how about the oversized top-loading cartridge of the cleaner which can store 60% additional debris? This allows you to keep the machine going throughout an entire cycle and you don’t even need to clean it until it’s done.

The cleaning is quite efficient with the cleaner’s SmartNav technology. This guides it with a scanner to ensure every area of the pool is cleaned. If the pool still has loose debris left in it afterward, its innovative filtration system will capture it. There are ultra-fine filters integrated into this filtration system. They’ll collect all kinds of debris, such as twigs, algae, and long leaves.

The pool cleaner performs well, despite not having a timer. This may be a downside for some people who want to time the cleanings precisely. As with other cheaper robotic cleaners, there is no scheduler included with the Dolphin Escape. In fact, there is not even a remote control included.


The Dolphin Escape is not the most convenient robotic cleaner, but it does its job well. It is also quite affordable, so people on a budget will want to look out for this cleaner.
