Frequently Asked Questions
As the Tommy Docks system is essentially a free standing structure, ice build up around the dock can damage the dock. This is especially true if the ice rises into the dock from underneath or if windy conditions in the Spring time of the year cause the ice to move around. Therefore, the rule of thumb is if there is ice on the water body, the dock should be removed. Not doing so voids any warranties.
Mainly depends on depth of water, wave action, size and layout of dock, and what dock system you are ordering. Use heavy duty with deep water, heavy wave or wind action, large dock layouts, and platinum dock packages/sections. Use normal duty in shallow water, little to no wave action, smaller dock layouts, and classic, classic+, and premium dock packages/sections. Normal Duty - 1.25" (1-1/4") inside diameter, 1.66" (1-5/8") outside diameter. Heavy Duty - 1.5" (1 1/2") inside diameter, 1.9" (1-7/8") outside diameter.
Muckpads are used for mucky lake bottoms. Auger feet are used for soft soil bottoms. Footpads are used for more solid lake bottoms. Can use a combination if lake bottom differs as dock goes out.
We offer an auger wrench that assists in installation and removal of dock post pipe and augers. This tool is not required but makes installation much easier and quicker. A pipe wrench can also be used.
