It's the best Dolphin Pool cleaner ever made. With groundbreaking design and a level of efficiency never seen before, the future has already begun. Highly efficient, state-of-the-art DC motors and an ingenious Multi-Media filtration system deliver an exceptional user experience while reducing energy use up to 87%.

But don't take our word for it. Watch the HD Video that shows how visionary mobility and design made the Premier the pool technology pacesetter.

Dolphin Premier Robotic Pool Cleaner

Maytronics engineers have done it again, designing a new pool robot that does the improbable.

Brand new for 2012, the Premier is the newest Dolphin robot to come out of the Maytronics laboratory. And it doesn't disappoint. To understand the evolution of the new Premier Robot, you have to go back to 1983. That's when Maytronics began the revolution. Some doubters were quite convinced that nobody would want a pool cleaner that operated without the typical booster pump. Their reservations were entirely understandable. Pool cleaners had always required an old fashioned AC motor to supply pressure or suction power. The problem was that booster pumps burned a staggering 1,470 watts of energy. If your pool relies on your main circulation pump to power a pool cleaner, that number can exceed 2,000 watts.

Then Maytronics launched a robotic pool cleaner with powerful 24 volt DC motors. These motors were nearly 90% more efficient. A highly efficient onboard low voltage motor was all that was needed to turn the pool cleaner industry upside down. Here was an opportunity to get more from less. To optimize the work input to work output. In short, efficiency needs power. That was the principle. And it still stands today.

Dolphin MultiMedia Types


MultiMedia is a new Dolphin pool cleaner feature that offers up to four types of media in one pool cleaner. Specific types of media work best for specific jobs. That's why Premier gives you the power to use any of the following media: micro-cartridges, standard cartridges, oversized debris bag, and disposable debris bags.

For the first time ever, no matter which media type you choose, you won’t be making a compromise. That's because Premier allows you to change your media type in just seconds. Want to clean fine debris and algae that passes through other cleaners? Go micro-filter. Need to pick up a bushel of leaves? Go oversided media bag.

Dolphin Navigation

SmartNav™ Robotic Scanning

When you unleash a Premier Dolphin into your pool, it doesn't just wonder aimlessly around like most pool cleaners. Smart-Nav software delivers highly optimized scanning and coverage for a new level of clean. Premier calculates the optimal pattern for faster cleaning and improved efficiency. With the ability to sense ladders and drains, Premier pool cleaners won't get hung up like ordinary pool cleaners. Microprocessor controlled Pool Scanning ensures complete efficient pool surface coverage.

HyperGrip Rubber Tracks

HyperGrip™ Rubber Tracks

The Premier Dolphin pool cleaner was designed from the ground up for best in industry agility, maneuverability and climbing performance. High performance pool cleaning begins with precise tracking. Pool surfaces are difficult for a wheel to grip. The layer of water in the contact patch of an ordinary wheel allows slippage. Slippage results in wasted energy and poor performance. The much greater surface area of a rubber track improves directional control and deliver substantially more force than wheels. The Premier robot features aggressive rubber tracks for superior power delivery, better control and precise tracking. Wheel slippage is eliminated. Energy is conserved.

Ultra Efficient DC Motors

Ultra Efficient DC Motors

Famous for a high ratio of torque to inertia, the DC motor can provide up to five time it's rated torque without stalling. The Premier Dolphin pool cleaner utilizes not one one but two onboad DC motors. One DC motor is dedicated to driving the jet pump and the second is dedicated to providing propulsion.

The revolutionary 24 volt DC motors require 87% less energy than the AC motors that power old fashioned pool cleaners. The Premier runs on just 180 watts for an operating costs of just 5 cents per hour. Efficiency demands power. That was the principle then. And it still stands today.

True Pool Waterline Scrubbing

True Waterline Scrubbing

In a radical departure from ordinary cleaners, the Premier pool cleaner was designed to clean all pool surfaces including the tile and waterline with pinpoint precision. For the first time ever, Dual Control Ballasts and advanced microprocessor logic enable precise control and positioning of the robot. While other cleaners fall from the wall, the onboard 3,000 RPM DC motor allows Premier to remain firmly planted against the wall all the way to the top.

Premier Dolphin pool cleaners reaches every square inch of the pool Spinning at nearly one revolution per second, high speed spinning brushes easily handle difficult colonies of bacteria, algae, and biofilm. Premier reaches deep inside pool corners, scrubs, and vacuums so you don't have to.

Dolphin Premier Diagram

The Dolphin Premier is our inventory of what's technically possible.

After 29 years of evolving the Dolphin cleaner design concept, how much room could there still be for improvement? Lots, apparently. Both inside and out, the design of the newest Dolphin robot keeps the tried-and-true, while embracing innovation.

A technologically superior robotic cleaner with best in class features, the longest warranty available, and legendary Dolphin performance. The Dolphin Premier's long list of technology includes SmartNavTM advanced robotic scanning, Multi-MediaTM with easy clean micro-filter cartridges and an exclusive, patented tangle-resistant swivel cable.

Patented Angle Tangle 360 Degree Pool Cable Swivel

Patented Anti-Tangle, Maintenance-Free Swivel

The underwater 360 degrees cable swivel is one of the greatest engineering accomplishments in the pool cleaner industry. No surprisingly, Dolphin engineers invented the underwater robotic swivel. But you don’t need to be an engineer to understand the benefits of tangle-free operation.

For many years the twisting and turning of pool cleaners turned even the best engineered robots into a tangled web. Tangles destroy both performance and efficiency. But that's history. Each Premier Dolphin is fitted with a maintenance free swivel as standard.

This game changing swivel system, developed and patented by Dolphin, provides unlimited 360 degree rotation without wear or degredation. Maytronics invented and patented the robotic swivel. 29 years later, what other robotic company offers a swivel? Nobody.

Modular System

Modular DIY Engineered

We understand that our clients don't invest in a Premier Dolphin pool cleaner to manually clean your pool. That's why we designed Premier to minimize downtime. Premier is built on a modular DIY platform. In the event that Premier needs service, we've made it so any component can be easily replaced by the owner or any of our many dealers in about 10 minutes. Rapid repair means that your Premier pool cleaner will never be out of your pool too long.

3 Year Warranty

Best in Class 3 Year No-nonsense Warranty

A top-of-the-line robotic cleaner should have a no-nonsense warranty that protects your investment. Premier delivers. 3 years. Not pro-rated. Not limited to hours or cycles. It's hands down the best warranty in the industry.
