The Flagship Above Ground Robot

Lower, sleeker, and perched on a wider stance, the striking presence of the all-new Dolphin Escape presents a new standard for the modern above ground pool cleaner. Escape is built to push the boundaries of electric, autonomous self-cleaning robots optimized for above ground pools.


The New Generation.

The Escape Dolphin pool cleaner was designed from the ground up for best in industry agility, suction power and surface scrubbing. With a groundbreaking list of patented features, we present that fully autonomous robot that shows just how far we're willing to go.

HyperGrip Rubber Tracks

High performance pool cleaning begins with precise tracking. Pool surfaces are difficult for a wheel to grip. The layer of water in the contact patch of an ordinary wheel allows slippage. Slippage results in wasted energy and poor performance. The greater surface area of a rubber track improves directional control and deliver substantially more force than wheels. The aggressive rubber tracks deliver superior power delivery, better control and precise tracking. Wheel slippage is eliminated. Energy is conserved.


Massive Top-Access Filtration

In another Dolphin first, Escape was equipped with a massive top-loading filtration based that holds up to 300% more than traditional above ground pool cleaners. Escape delivers a whole new level of performance and convenience. Got leaves? Don't get caught without this oversized debris filter.


Double the Filter Capacity

For the last 20 years, above ground pool cleaners have had bags. If you've ever tried to spray out a bag, you'll appreciate the easy to clean basket. The Escape's extra large size was created to go longer in between cleanings. This allows Escape to run a full week between cleanings in most applications.

Change the way you clean forever.

Every mountain range has its pinnacle. Every sport, its champion. Every breakthrough, its inventor. In the history of the robotic pool cleaner, one above ground robot makes history time and again, not just by raising the standard, but advancing it in ways you never imagined possible.


More powerful. More advanced.

Efficiency Demands Power.

Escape boasts a pair of larger, more powerful motors precisely controlled via microcontroller. Twin motors raise efficiency, and suction power. And its advanced, adaptive and highly adept chassis with scrubbing brush was engineered for an ideal balance of composure and confidence. Because of this philosophy, Dolphin has succeeded in reducing the energy consumption of todayโ€™s above ground pool cleaner by nearly 90%.

Dual High Output Motors

Ultra-Efficient DC Motors

There was an opportunity to get more from less. To optimize the work input to work output. Enter the era of robotic pool cleaners. Inefficient AC motors were eliminated. Powerful permanent magnet DC motors were installed onboard the Dolphin Escape cleaner, eliminating friction losses and backpressure.

Famous for a high ration of torque to inertia, the DC motor can provide up to five time it's rated torque, without stalling. 24 volt DC motors require 87% less energy than the motors that power old fashioned pool cleaners. The Escape hin pool cleaner runs on just 180 watts for an operating costs of just 5 cents per hour.

Another Dolphin First

Spinning, Scrubbing Brush

For the first time ever in an above ground robotic pool cleaner, Escape power into position. Then a high speed rotational brush handles difficult colonies of bacteria, algae, and biofilm with ease. Spinning at nearly one revolution per second, Escape deep cleans, scrubs, and vacuums so you don't have to.

Plug and Play

One Touch Operation

Escape was designed for easy, simple operation. There's no complex set up, no programming. Simply press the large button on the power supply and Escape goes to work immediately.


Say hello to enerjoy.

Leading the way in both technology and efficiency, the Escape keeps the tried and true while embracing innovation. Both inside and out, the Escape is the flagship of whatโ€™s technically possible. The promise of change is what makes the future exciting. And the more we innovate, the more opportunities we find to create superior experiences. From the fully electric world of Dolphin to the powerful multi-motor designs, our goal is to create a future that delivers more.


SmartNav 2.0 Robotic Scanning

When you unleash a Dolphin Escape into your pool, it doesn't just wonder aimlessly around like most above ground pool cleaners. Smart-Nav software delivers highly optimized scanning and coverage for a new level of clean. Escape calculates the optimal pattern for faster cleaning and improved efficiency. With the ability to sense ladders and drains, Escape pool robots won't get hung up like ordinary pool cleaners. Microprocessor controlled Pool Scanning ensures complete efficient pool surface coverage.
