Main Differences Between the Models

You can guess by the names that these Dolphins should share a lot of similar features, and that’s the truth. Still, we managed to find a significant number of differences, which form the basis of comparison. Here they are:

    Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus vs Dolphin Nautilus CC

  • Both cleaners are designed for inground pools and can be applied in above ground pools either. However, Nautilus CC Plus is a more powerful device that cleans larger basins up to 50ft. Nautilus CC suits smaller swimming pools up to 33ft.
  • Consequently, the difference also lies in cable length. The first option comes with a longer 60ft floating cord equipped with swivel and anti-tangle functions. In the second case, you get 50 feet of cable, which can float only. No swivel or anti-tangle included.
  • The Plus cleaner uses dual scrubbers for sediment elimination. Its opponent comes with a single scrubber.
  • Filtration systems of the robots present an essential difference too. When purchasing the CC Plus, you get dual cartridges for fine and ultra-fine filtration. The CC cleaner features a bigger but less efficient fine filter basket.
  • It’s supposed that both Dolphins have CleverClean navigation. Numerous tests and users` reviews assert that while Nautilus CC Plus does use this technology, the CC cleaner fails to navigate with equal accuracy.
  • Dolphin Nautilus CC is the only cleaner in the review that uses both triple scheduling and Energy Saving mode.
  • In the same way, the CC is the only one that comes with a water release system.

  1. Are there any special requirements to water statement to run the robot correctly? Can hard water or too much chlorine for example harm bot?

    • Hi, Vik! Thank you very much for your question! Water state may directly influence performance and service life of your cleaner but, first of all, it can harm your health. That’s why we recommend monitor the amount of chlorine, saltiness, lead in your water and avoid exceeding the allowable content norm.

  2. How long is the warranty/service years for Dolphin products?

    • Hi, Ted! Thank you very much for your question! Dolphin robot pool cleaners have 2 year warranty. However, on average, these products last for 5-10 years.

  3. How many cleaning cycles Nautilus robots have?

    • Hi, Frank! Thank you very much for your question! Dolphin Nautilus offers only one cleaning cycle for 2 hours. However, if you need some local cleaning, you can interrupt operation once the dirt is removed. However, more expensive models offer special fast-cleaning cycle.
