Raman,
There are a few things that can cause step plating. Low tin metal concentration, sulphuric acid too low, tin starter low (if applicable). Another possible cause is organic contamination. Bring the bath up to spec with a good chemical analysis. If the problem still persists, put in two or three sets of carbon cartridges through your filter system.
