Maytronics to Retire the Dolphin E30… Already

It hasn’t been long since the Explorer line by Maytronics was unveiled. The line had some success among pool owners with some innovative features and exceptional cleaning performance.

Dolphin E30 Features

  • Pin-point turning and climbing abilities for a deeper clean
  • Scrubs, vacuums, and filters all pool surfaces in just 2 hours
  • Convenient top-access cartridge filter system that’s easy to clean
  • IntelliSteer for maximum pool coverage while avoiding tangled cables
  • Active scrubbing brush spins at 2X speed
  • Tangle-free cable allows the Explorer E30 to move freely around the pool
  • Cleans all pool surface types
  • Incredibly efficient – costs less than 15 cents to clean the pool
  • Plug-n-play! No pre-installation is needed, and no connections to the pool system
  • Self-programmed for optimal pool scanning.
  • Fast, debris-free water release system
  • Weekly timer, industry-leading energy efficiency
  • 24-month warranty

Early Retirement

Maytronics will be sunsetting the E30 robot and remaining inventory at retailers will ultimately stop being restocked. But why? As it turns out, the relatively new robot is being replaced with “almost” the same model. The newer version will have Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing for it to be controlled with a smart device. To avoid confusion, the model name (E30) and manufacturer part numbers will be changed. From my understanding, not much else will change.

The Dolphin robot will still continue to have all the same core features and will be capable of cleaning small, medium, and in some cases, large swimming pools. The robot will still likely have a connected power cord despite the release of Maytronics first cordless robots, the Liberty Series.

All in all, the E10, E20, E50, and E70 will remain as-is and there is no sunsetting of these models in the near future. Speculation is that the E30 might have been the version of the Explorer series that did not live up to it’s full potential and this is a move to make it more competitive with robots in this line as well as competitor robots.

Some retailers have minimal inventory remaining and it is likely not going to be restocked from distributors and the manufacturer. A spokesperson from EZ Pool & Spa Supply said today, “We have 9 remaining in our online inventory and we don’t think we’ll be able to get any more at this point. The new model, which hasn’t been officially released yet, should be available in the coming weeks. Hopefully the new version will deliver the same balance of performance and budget that the E30 was able to offer pool owners.”

Additional information on the E30 and it’s replacement will be published as soon as updates are made available.
