Maintenance & Storage

Taking Care of Your Dock

To prolong the life of your DH Dock, there are a few small maintenance items we recommend.

Spring Care

Use a little grease on the setscrews of the pipe brackets once a year, preferably in spring. The same goes for the setscrews on sway bases, setscrew bases, and the threads on threaded pipe bases if you remove your pipes each year. If we installed your dock, this has been done for you.


Stack the removable dock panels face-to-face and back-to-back. Make sure they are level. This is especially important with wood decking.


The vinyl decking can be pressure washed as needed. For wood decking, we recommend a stiff brush. If you use a cleaning agent, always use one that is environmentally friendly.
