Dolphin Triton PS Robotic Pool Cleaner Guide

The Dolphin Triton PS has a lightweight ergonomic design. It’s easy to lift and handle weighing only 16.5 pounds. Its energy efficient power supply helps you by programming weekly cleaning schedules to save time and energy costs. The Triton PS is ideal for inground pools up to 50 ft. in length.

This robot is a “top load” robot which means that you access the filter basket and empty it from the top as opposed to underneath like some other models. This is much easier to empty and minimizes wear and tear on its top if you had to turn it over.

There’s also an easy open and close hinge on the bottom of the basket for easy emptying when filter removal isn’t needed. The Triton PS comes with two sets of filters. Fine and Very Fine. The Triton has a basket that can hold a large amount of debris and the filters themselves pop out of the basket for easy cleaning or replacement when needed.

When connecting the robot’s power cord to the power supply, be sure to align correctly and push in. Once plugged in you’ll need to turn clockwise to secure the threaded plug. Don’t forget to plug the power supply into a traditional GCI outlet nearby.

Put the robot in the water using the handle on the top. Allow time for the air to escape the robot and for it to sink to the pool bottom. Be sure to have some excess cord to go along with it as it descends. The white section on the cord is what’s called a “swivel” and works to keep the robot’s power chord from tangling as it maneuvers in the pool.

At this point you can turn the robot on by pressing the circular power button located on the front left of the power supply. The buttons to the right of this power button, control the weekly timer which gives you the ability to leave the robot in the pool and clean every 1, 2, or 3 days for a week. The features that aren’t available on this model are further to the right and include: short cycle selection, delayed start, and Bluetooth as well.

The Triton PS at startup will got through some diagnostics and once complete, gets going on its cleaning job ahead. While underway the tracks on the Triton PS move at the same speed which really helps the vehicle maintain straight lines while cleaning. It only changes direction when it encounters slopes or obstructions. These robots don’t turn like tracked construction equipment with one track going in the opposite direct, it actually turns using the jets on each side. It will execute a turn by shooting water out of one side and turn away from the obstruction.

The Triton PS has spinning brushes that are located on both the front and back of the robot. The brush on the front actually spins twice as fast as the back, allowing for extra scrubbing power as it goes. Because the robot was designed for the pool water to be filtered and then ejected out of the top of the vehicle, it can actually clean moving both forwards and backwards, while many other robots can only clean while moving forwards.

The Triton PS expertly climbs and cleans pool walls, bench seats, sun shelves and also scrubs the waterline. It accomplishes this using it’s patented PowerStream Mobility System with multi-directional jets helping to always ensure a steady grip on vertical surfaces to get the cleaning job done more efficiently.

Don’t forget about the Triton PS having the Dolphin CleverClean technology which scans the pool in advance to optimization cleaning routes and get the entire pool done within 2 hours. When the robot has completed its cleaning cycle, you’ll want to lift the robot out of the water by the handle and allow time for the water to drain back into the pool through the fast water release system.
