ensure the best operation of your aqua step, Aqua Performance
recommends that you hose off your step after every use,
as you would the rest of your watercraft. To remove sand
build up: You will need to remove the side caps and use
a hose to spray water inside the spring mechanism while
moving the step up and down. When finished rinsing, we
recommend and use Prolong Oil as a lubricant onto the
spring. Replace caps and bolts to ensure a proper fit.
