How to care for your polished aluminium wakeboard tower

Keeping up with your tower can be an hour or so of your time. You will probably really appreciate it in the long run. Over time aluminium can loose it shine or begin to oxidize.

Around here the bugs are HUGE and travel in groups! So what happens when we go to the lake? Our tower, boat and windshield get a nice coat of bug guts.

We normally hit the car wash closest to home to rinse everything off and wash the tower. We just use a mild detergent to wash the dirt and bugs off the tower, dry it off (because nothing drives me crazy like water spots), and shine it up with an aluminium polish, if needed. There are many different brand of aluminium polish. Use which ever aluminium polish you prefer, we use "Never Dull".

 The way we do it is also the way that Big Air recommends to clean their polished aluminium towers.

Our Roswell Representative recommends cleaning their polished aluminium products with soap and water to remove dirt and bugs. Then use a 3M Machine Glaze to keep their polished finished looking bright.

Of course everyone has their own way of doing things. I have heard of people wiping the tower down with pledge before travel to make bug removal easier. Some just wax their tower for the same ease of removal and keep the shine. I have even heard of people using a magic eraser. In the end, what you choose to do is up to you.

As always if you have any questions please contact us.
