How to clean your flowtech tripod

The flowtech tripod is extremely versatile and sturdy, allowing it to be used in sand, salt water and other harsh environments.

However, after it is used in these conditions – it is important to clean the system to ensure maximum life and to keep it in optimal working order. If you do not, this may stop the legs from moving freely.

To clean your flowtech tripod:

  1. Fill a bucket full of warm water about 30cm/12inch deep.
  2. Deploy one of the tripod legs and lock it.
  3. Place the leg into the water and release the brake.
  4. Keep extending and lowering the leg, repeating the process until you are happy the leg is moving freely and that you have removed as much debris as possible.
  5. Extend the leg to the full length and shake off any excess water, making sure to dry thoroughly with a clean towel or cloth.
  6. Repeat with the other legs as necessary.
