Pool Cleaner Reviews Evaluation

The Maytronics Dolphin Oasis Z5 packs the power of a commercial cleaner into a residential cleaner’s package. It easily filters dirt, sand, silt, algae and other debris. In the ever-heated competition of robotic pool cleaners, the Oasis Z5 can only be called one of the top contenders. The Oasis uses dual motors to make sure there is always enough power to clean the pool floor and walls in addition to propelling itself in the toughest of situations.

Like many other robotic pool cleaners, the Z5 helps keep your pool maintenance costs to a minimum. You will no longer need to hire someone to clean your pool or struggle through the messy process yourself. Where the Oasis Z5 differs, is the extreme quality and craftsmanship that goes in to the manufacturing process. Being one of Dolphin’s newest cleaners, the Z5 sees all the gains in its predecessors without any of the drawbacks.

Also, as one of the top level cleaners offered by Dolphin, you get a complete package included in the Oasis box. In addition to the pool cleaner and power supply, you’ll get a caddy for easy transport of the cleaner, and a remote for when you need to do some quick spot cleaning without getting wet.

Overall, the Dolphin Oasis Z5 is a big win, it’s a complete package cleaner, with a great three year warranty. We commonly see this pool cleaner for under $1300 and that’s a deal we wouldn’t pass up.

*Price listed at time of review was $1199.99 – Actual retail price may vary.

  1. I have a 20×40 rectangular pool with an 8′ hopper. The sides in the deep end are at angles ending in 90 degree corners. I had the pool installed 40 years ago. It is vinyl lined. Here in Maine gunite pools are not the norm. I have had a Kreepy Krauler for 38 years. Have to admit it still works like new. But I am retired now and I did not want to deal with manually directing it to the dirty spots. Although it did a good job you still had to direct it with the pool cleaner pole to get spots missed. So I bought the Z5 hoping it would be better. WOW! The Z5 is the best purchase for the pool I have made. I put it in, watched it for 1/2 hour then thought “It ain’t going to get all the corners!”. I decided to go in the house and let it do it’s cycle. Was I surprised. It cleaned the pool, every nook and cranny. Now it is 2 days later and I have some dirt in a few spots. Okay, time to play with the remote. Put the Z5 in, turned on the remote and I could direct it within a few seconds to the dirty spot and it cleaned it up. What a great machine!

    • Eric –

      Do you have a problem of your Z5 riding up onto your main drains and getting stuck there. I currently have this problem and have been unsuccessful in finding a solution. I am wondering what your main drain covers look like to not allow your Z5 to get stuck on top of them.

      Thanks – Tom

  2. Bought OASIS to replace Pool Vac.
    OASIS is ten times better. Fast, easy to use, great cleaner.
    Doesn’t use pool motor, so much less junk in skimmer.
    Put it in pool, did great job cleaning bottom and walls of whole pool in 3 hours. Took it out, emptied, rinsed off two sets of built-in filters, put them back in; ready to use again. Has two electric motors that run off a 24v transformer that plugs into a wall socket.
    Does cost more than a vacuum pool cleaner, but you get what you pay for.
