Caring for Dolphin Filter Bags & Cartridges

The Dolphin features a multi-layer filter that traps various particles and wastes. This system helps keep the water at a safe level for everyone.

Getting your pool or spa's filter cleaned regularly can help maintain its high level of cleanliness. It's as simple as washing it with a hose and letting it air dry.


The light’s on!

Q. The Full Filter Indicator light comes on—but our filters are clean. What could this mean?

A. Your Dolphin’s Full Filter Indicator light is controlled by a sensor attached to the unit’s motor. It should come on anytime a filter bag or filter cartridge is near full, making it difficult for your Dolphin to draw water through it. Let’s say this isn’t the case for you, since it doesn’t sound like it. You’ll want to apply these DIY quick fixes:

•    Clear all filter bags/cartridges of visible debris.
•    Then, deep clean and fully seat the unit’s filters.
•    With your Dolphin in use, press the “Reset” button.
•    Hold the “Reset” button down for about 3-5 seconds.
•    Check the Full Filter Light indicator, ensuring that it’s off.

In essence, what you’ve just done is “zero” out the sensor. As a result, that light shouldn’t turn on again until the filters begin to fill up or are full.


What about damaged filters?

Q. My Dolphin’s filters are torn or otherwise damaged. Because of this, I want to know if there are replacement parts available. If so, what’s the best way for me to obtain them?

A. We’re sorry to hear that, though you may be luckier than you think! It’s possible your filters are still covered by a warranty. Even if they aren’t, parts and accessories like these can be purchased from a local authorized retailer within the Maytronics Distributor network. We’re happy to help you figure out which situation applies to you:

•    First, locate your unit’s Serial #.
•    Look in the casing near the bar code.
•    See that white strip? Your Serial # is there.
•    Call Dolphin Customer Support: (888) 365-7446.
•    If a warranty applies, we’ll ship you a replacement.

If a warranty does not apply, we’ll make a friendly referral to your closest neighborhood Dolphin dealer.
