Here's a step-by-step guide to setting up your AquaThruster based on the transcript from the video:

***Understand the Regulations: Before you begin, ensure you understand the regulations of your own state in regards to how the AquaThruster should be used.***

1. Initial Clean Out Phase:

When you first put your AquaThruster in the water, you should run it continuously for one to three days. This will help clean out the area.
If you're dealing with bottom sediment or muck, place the bottom of the motor about six to eight inches above the muck line.

2. Adjustment For Severe Muck Problems:

If you have a severe muck problem, you'll need to adjust your AquaThruster down as your muck line goes down.
Make sure you're taking off the muck particles from the top and not trying to move too much muck at once. Moving muck in chunks or globs will not be as effective.

3. Positioning Your Motor:

Position your motor so that it's nearly horizontal, but slightly tipped up. Once the motor engages, it will shoot a current of water over the top of the muck line.
The moving water will cause the muck to start breaking into particles and rising up into the water, moving out with the current.

4. Setting the Oscillator:

The oscillator operates by going in one direction for 20 minutes, then shifting 20 degrees and going for another 20 minutes. It keeps shifting 20 degrees every 20 minutes, up to 360 degrees.
After a full 360-degree sweep, the oscillator will turn back the other way and do the same.

5. Maintenance Phase:

After your clean out phase, you'll move on to maintenance. Adjust the bottom of the motor to be about 12 to 13 inches off the bottom.
How often you need to do maintenance depends on your waterfront's condition and your personal preferences. Maintenance could be anywhere from two to seven days a week.

6. Setting the Timer:

If you've purchased the timer, you can program your maintenance for whatever days of the week and times of the day you prefer.
The timer has a dual outlet, one for the motor and one for the oscillator. It plugs into your power supply.

7. Enjoy Your Clean Waterfront:

With the AquaThruster, you've got the tool to keep your waterfront clean on your terms.
