Editorial Review

Maytronics sure makes a lot of dolphins. No, not the aquatic mammals but pool cleaners in its Dolphin line, like the Maytronics Dolphin Oasis Z5. The Oasis Z5 is one of their most expensive models, though real dolphins would doubtlessly charge even more for their pool cleaning services. (On top of which, Dolphins don't do a very good job cleaning pools.) The Oasis Z5 roams around the floor and walls of your pool very slowly, so slowly that YouTube videos of this unit at work would make a great cure for insomnia, but that's because it's busy scrubbing away at particles adhering to the pool surfaces and cleanliness is a very slow thing to achieve, especially if you're a machine floating in fluid desperately grabbing for mechanical traction.

The Oasis Z5 can handle dirt, sand, silt, algae, as well as more obvious pool detritus like leaves and twigs. It has dual drive motors to help it with that traction, especially when it's going up the wall of the pool, and a split brush to do double duty in scrubbing surfaces clean. It leaves all junk in its dual filter cartridges, which are top loaded and can be popped out for easy emptying and hosing down. Its electric cable is 60 feet long, so it can probably handle a 50-foot long pool if there's an electric outlet in the vicinity. There's a swivel on the cable so that it won't knot back on itself when the Oasis turns. And the unit has an intelligent scanning system that can work out the shape of your pool and clean it in efficient, non-repetitive patterns.

The Oasis can climb 90 degree pool walls, which would be very entertaining to watch if it weren't so slow about it. It can make it right up to the waterline, after which it would need helicopter blades to go any higher. If you'd like to compare the Oasis to some other pool cleaners, none of which come with helicopter blades either, look at the Smartpool Climber, the Maytronics Dolphin Quantum and the Aquabot Pura 5X.
