  • If my Aquasweep will run 230V and the Oscillator requires 115V, will I need to have both a 230V and a 115V electrical feed trenched to my dock?

    If the Aquasweep will run on 230V and you do not already have 115V installed near the dock, an electrician can configure a new or existing 230V electrical service to provide both 230V for the Aquasweep and 115V for the Oscillator. To do this the 230V feed cable will need to be a 4 wire installation with two "hot" 115V lines, a neutral line and a ground. Please consult a licensed electrician for the installation.

  • Will both the Aquasweep and the Oscillator need to be plugged in separately at the electrical outlet on shore?

    Both the Aquasweep and the Oscillator will plug in separately. Therefore both the Aquasweep and the Oscillator will require cables to be run back to the electrical outlets.

  • I have square dock posts (Shoremaster). I will need to measure the post size, but do you have square U bolts?

    We do not carry replacement U-Bolts. Stainless steel U-Bolts are recommended to avoid rusting and to make it easier to remove in the future.

    Most hardware sites offer a limited selection of sizes in stainless steel/square U-Bolts. We checked with Scott, the manufacture of the Aquasweep, and they recommended using the rounded U-Bolts on the square dock posts if you cannot find square U-Bolts that fit. 

    One site that does offer a wide selection of stainless U-Bolts is McMaster Carr. They do have some square stainless steel U-Bolts too. Here is a link to the U-Bolts on their site:

  • If I do not get the Oscillator, in order to reposition the Aquasweep I will need to repeatedly tighten and loosen the thumb screws which secure the shaft in the dock mounting bracket. Does this repeated tightening of the thumb screws against the shaft deform it or "bugger it up" in any way?

    All of the hardware used on the Aquasweep, including the bracket and the shaft, is made from quality Stainless Steel. In addition to being rust resistant, Stainless Steel is also a relatively hard metal.  This hardness allows it to resist deforming under the normal pressure applied by the thumb screws when they are tightened against the shaft. The Aquasweep also ships with a packet of anti-seize lubricating compound to apply to the threads of the thumb screws to help ensure they can be easily loosened and retightened in the future. 

    Therefore, except for possibly some very minor surface scratches, you should not experience any significant deformation of the shaft caused by the thumb screws when they are tightened. 

  • What is the difference between the Scott Aquasweep and Scott dock mounted de-icer. They look very similar.

    While Scott's Aquasweep and Dock Mounted De-Icer do look similar and perform similar functions - there are important differences between them.

    1. On the two models, the motor is placed at different locations in the tube where it is mounted. The motor in the Aquasweep is mounted farther back in the tube than it is on the deicer. This gives the Aquasweep a longer barrel that creates a more concentred steam of water than on the de-icer. This allows the Aquaspeep to reach out and to move muck and bottom debris farther out than the deicer would be able to do - and to create a clear area up to 100 feet in diameter. If you look at pictures of both the Aquasweep and the de-icer, you will notice that the Aquasweep's motor sticks farther out the back of the tube than it does on the de-icer.

    2. The de-icer's mount allows the tube holding the motor to be aimed up towards the surface of the water at a higher angle than can be achieved on the Aquasweep.  This allows the de-icer to push relatively warmer water from near the bottom towards the surface and keep the area ice-free. The motor placement on the de-icer complements this by creating a more diffused -less concentrated stream of water while the Aquaspeep's more concentrated steam would not be as effective at de-icing.

    3. The standard cord length on the Aquasweep is 50 ft long, while the de-icer's standard cord length is 25 ft.

  • Will the post bracket fit on a 2-inch post?

    The dock post mounting bracket uses U-bolts to attach to the dock post. The stock U-bolts that come with the bracket will fits posts up to 1 7/8" in diameter. However, the slots through which the U-bolts attach are wide enough to accept a 3/8" threaded U-bolt that would fit a 2 1/2"  diameter dock post. You would need to find a source for these U-bolts to fit the larger posts.
