Some people take their coffee dark as night and stiff as undiluted chlorine. Not me. I prefer latte style.

Still, one size does not fit all. If I were your host, I’d stock up on whichever bean variety you prefer. If you wanted artificial sweetener? I’d go get some. If you had a hankerin’ for Mocha Mix? I’d grab a carton.

As a Commercial, Industrial or Institutional pool operator, you accommodate guests every day. It’s second nature to you. Whatever makes for “a perfect swim,” you tailor your pool experience to the needs and desires of those consumers.

With so many people to please, your mind must be swimming in decisions. Striking a compromise isn’t easy, yet you never compromise on hygiene!

Professional-Grade Pool Cleaning

In the U.S. alone, there are 270,000 commercial swimming pools.

Each is, essentially, a public pool. That includes properties with industrial-sized swimming pools like community or school pools. Locales which see repeated use and serve a wide swath of the population. Then there are semi-private swimming pools. Think petite hotels which boast luxe, poolside rooms.

Like public pool consumers, Maytronics Dolphin pool cleaning robots come in all shapes and sizes. There are robotic vacuums with multi-layer filters to scrub clean pool water that attracts contaminants of all kinds. There are automatic pool cleaners that fill Olympic-sized wish lists. The range is broad.

We’ve covered residential swimming pool vacuums:

•   AG Series – Above ground
•   S Series – Standard
•   C Series – Classic
•   P Series – Premium

Today we’ll dive into the Commercial -&- Industrial lines. When you think of Commercial cleaners, picture theme parks, resorts and private clubs. When you think industrial, get an image in your head of municipal pools, major sports complexes and university athletic facilities.

If it’s your job to keep your property’s commercial or public swimming pool clean, read on!

Commercial or Industrial Strength?

Ergonomic, energy-saving robots aren’t only for residential use. Via ongoing innovation in Intelligent Navigation and Active Brush technology, Maytronics makes energy efficient pool cleaning robots which scrub public pools from floor to surface, helping you achieve a maximum clean. Some are Bluetooth® enhanced!

How, then, do you choose a Commercial or Industrial robotic pool cleaner for your facility?

Strasbourg, France, is home to some of the most iconic municipal pools (one such pool pictured) anywhere. And they run on Maytronics Dolphins!

Strasbourg, France, is home to some of the most iconic municipal swimming pools. Fun Fact: They’re run on Maytronics Dolphins!

First, pick a brand that delivers on two counts: user-friendly features and dependability. Commercial electronic pool cleaners under the Dolphin label reliably deliver long-term value in the form of easy, cost-effective operation.

They’re proven to get you in the swim in no time—even with an oversized professional pool. That leads to consistently clean results, ensuring guests are greeted by pool water that’s clear and inviting. The effort you expend to get sparkling results is minimal.

Enhanced Navigation Control, for one, scans your pool and brushes every surface while filtering out both fine and large debris. In short, choose a cleaner with built-in features which let your maintenance team focus on other things and still get 100% hygienic results.

Whether you manage and run a mid-sized pool or an Olympic-grade professional swimming pool, there’s a Dolphin for that. Dolphins deliver clean results and are low maintenance. The Maytronics motto?

(5) Dolphins fall in the Institutional pool robot category:

Maytronics competed for and won a contract to outfit France's public pool system (pictured: Strasbourg municipal pool) with Dolphin robots.

In 2012, Maytronics competed for (and won!) a contract to equip France’s Strasbourg municipal pool system with Dolphin robots.

•   Wave 75 – MSRP: $1,999
•   Wave 100 – MSRP: $3,699
•   2×2 Gyro Pro – MSRP: $6,400
•   Wave 200 – MSRP: $7,499
•   Wave 300 XL – MSRP: $11,000

If they’re good enough for the EU, imagine what a fleet of Dolphins can do for you! In 2012, Maytronics competed for (and won!) a contract with the City of Strasbourg—capital of the European Union.

It then equipped 15 municipal pools of diverse shapes with 25+ Dolphin Wave 300 XL robotic pool cleaners. What else is Maytronics’ Industrial pool cleaners famous for? Greece’s island-based Aqualand Corfu Theme Waterpark is the largest of its kind in Eastern Europe. Two Dolphin Wave 300 XLs serve several of the park’s bodies of water.

We’re talking pools of all shapes, sizes and depths. Versatility? Opa!

U of Arizona Uses ‘Em, Too!

Dolphin robotic pool vacuums get around. It’s not just Europeans who like their ergonomic design, energy savings and fine filter walls either. Since 2011, two Dolphin Wave 300 XLs have scrubbed away impurities in heavy-use pools at the University of Arizona: one Olympic 50m (164 ft.) and one 6m (20 ft.) deep diving pool.

When Shenzhen Universiade Water Sports Center (north of Hong Kong) hosted sports games in 2011, Maytronics was on the job. Gee, do Dolphins come with passports? My point: Dolphins are equipped to handle anything you throw their way. They’re high-quality, built to last and do a great job of wall-to-wall cleaning.

That’s true for a wide range of pool types: Commercial, Industrial and Institutional pools. The best robotic pool cleaner for your facility must do the same. If not, why buy one? If you’re shopping for a heavy-hitting pool cleaner, make it easy on yourself.
