What is the difference between the Dolphin Oasis Z5 cleaner and the Dolphin Premier?
Howdy! Good question, the biggest difference is the Oasis Z5i has two drive motors with a split brush and the Dolphin Premier only has one drive motor. The Oasis Z5i has one motor for each track. This has many benefits and allows the cleaner to turn 90 degrees like a tank rather than have to slowly arch. This gives the cleaner much better cleaning, climbing, and maneuverability. If you watch each cleaner you will see there is a huge difference in cleaning performance. The Oasis Z5i is a top load filter style cleaner where the Premier is a bottom load filter cleaner. This means that to clean the Premier you must roll it over on to its top and remove the bottom of the cleaner to get access to the filters. The Oasis Z5i has a top load filter that you can access from two doors on the top of the cleaner. Cleaning the Oasis is much easier. The filter is also about an inch taller on the Oasis Z5i model. The Oasis also comes with a Bluetooth enabled power supply so you can do sorts of cool stuff like drive around the cleaner with your phone. Hope that helps!
Is there any other 2018 Dolphin Model with duel drive motors?
Maytronics does have a few models with the dual drive in the 2018 lineup, however all the other units are considered retail only models and are not available online, these models are the M400 and the M500. Both of these units are restricted from online sales and Maytronics will not honor the warranty. The Oasis Z5 does have a 3 year warranty for online or retail purchases.
How do you clean out these filters and where does the debris go?
The top of the cleaner has two access doors on either side that open up. Once you open up the access door you pull the cartridge filter out. Each cartridge has two filter panels that are attached to the cartridge filter frame. The frame has two locking tabs that hold the filter panel in place. You simply swing the locking tab back and the filter panel pops right off. You can then empty the debris and clean off the panels. One thing that makes this cleaner nice is that the filters are top load, so you don't have to roll the cleaner over to clean the filters.
How does the filter system on this cleaner compare to the basket style on the Triton PS and other basket style Dolphin cleaners?
The capacity on the basket style cleaners verses these duel cartridges will be greater. This may make a difference if you have large leaves, and see a heavy amount in the pool. Neither cleaner will be able to handle large piles of leaves. One other thing that is important to note is that the filters themselves are made out of the same materials. The ability for each to filter water will be identical. it is really just the configuration of the filters that is different.
There are SO many dolphin models. Which is the BEST model!?? And where may I purchase it?
Thanks for your question. There are a ton of models, it took us awhile to get them all straight. We stock a great range of them. But the best model for you really depends on the features your looking for, the type of debris you have, and the type and size of pool you want to clean. Are you interested in a remote control? How big is your pool? What is the surface made of? What type of debris do you typically have in the pool?
If its easier to give us a buzz, we are available from 9-6 CST.
