Skip The Hose To Prevent Rusted Bearings
The old school way of gunning hose water directly onto and into a reel causes a lot of those rust issues. The water gets into the reel and can't get out, causing rust. Our recommendation is to skip the hose completely.
Wipe Your Reel Down With A Wet, Clean Rag
Instead of blasting the reel with a hose, use a rag to wipe the reel off instead. We recommend wetting a clean rag with freshwater and simply wiping the grime, salt off the reel.
