How often should I get my equipment serviced?
The most common question we are asked, even from customers of brand new equipment. There are several reasons to have equipment serviced even if you do not get it wet. Silicone and various other greases do not have a particularly long life, five years is the normal expectancy from most manufacturers. Seals will start flatten off beyond recovery after about 18 months, this does depend on storage of course but 2 years would in most cases be beyond our recommendations. In most equipment you will find rubber dampers or foam light trapping. Depending on the type of material used this can start to break down after 3 or 4 years. All plastics and rubbers are breaking down from the day after production but often an innocent insect repellent will speed things up considerably. Any solvent base no matter how diluted, will reduce the normal life expectancy of a product. With all this to contend with we recommend service intervals should be no longer than 18 months to 2 years, even without use.
