How to Maintain and Care for Your Aqua Pro Steamer

As a professional auto detailer, your Aqua Pro Steamer is an important part of your everyday job. To keep it in top condition, it is important to follow specific use, maintenance, and care.

Following are best practices and troubleshooting tips to help you maintain your Aqua Pro Steamer, ensuring it continues to perform at its best for every job.

Best Practices for Daily Use and Maintenance

  1. Use Distilled Water: Always fill your steamer with distilled or pure water. This prevents calcification which is a build up of mineral deposits found in regular tap water. It is a common issue in steamers that can lead to solenoid blockages and damage to the machine.

  2. Regular Descaling: To prevent buildup that can impair your machine's performance, descale your Aqua Pro Steamer approximately every month. Use the citric acid pack provided or a solution of 80% white vinegar and 20% distilled water for effective descaling.

Aqua Pro Steamer Troubleshooting Tips

  1. Steam Leakage: If you notice steam escaping from the bottom of the machine, it's likely due to missing o-rings in the red cap. Cool the machine down and remove the cap and inspect it for any missing or cracked seals and replace them if necessary.

  1. Stuck Red Cap: If the red cap becomes stuck in the machine and you are unable to remove it, ensure the machine is turned off and unplugged. Safely expel any remaining steam by pressing down on the cap. Allow the tank to cool down. While pressing down on the cap, turn it counterclockwise. If it remains stuck, the clutch may be seized. Apply firm pressure downward on the cap and attempt to twist it counterclockwise several times to free the clutch.

Safety Mechanism Activation: If you're unable to open the cap and suspect there is still pressurized water inside the tank, remember the built-in safety mechanism prevents the cap from being removed under such conditions. This feature ensures your safety by preventing accidental exposure to pressurized steam.

Additional Maintenance Tips

  • Inspect Attachments Regularly: Check the machine’s attachments and pads for any signs of wear or damage. Replacing worn-out attachments not only ensures better cleaning results but also extends the life of your steamer.
  • Keep External Surfaces Clean: Wipe down the exterior of your Aqua Pro Steamer regularly to prevent dirt and grime accumulation. A clean machine is not just about aesthetics; it's also about maintaining functionality and operational efficiency.
  • Store Properly: When not in use, store your Aqua Pro Steamer in a cool, dry place. Proper storage prevents environmental damage and ensures that your steamer is ready for its next use. Always make sure the water tank is empty when not in use.

By following the tips from this maintenance guide, you can ensure your Aqua Pro Steamer remains a reliable, efficient tool in your auto detailing business. Proper care and regular maintenance not only extend the life of your equipment but also guarantee the high-quality results your clients expect.
