Annual Service of Regs & BCDs

We believe all diving equipment should be treated as life support equipment and recommend that all servicing be carried out by suitably trained, competent technicians.  Divers should insist on the best, after all, your life depends on it.

At Aquaventures, all servicing is carried out by our A.S.S.E.T. trained technician in accordance with manufactures guidelines and to recognised industry standards.  We only use manufacturer original service kits to ensure true compatibility and give you peace of mind.  We service Apeks, Scubapro, Aqua-Lung, Poseidon, Mares, Seeman, Sherwood Scuba, Dive Rite, Beuchat, SeacSub, A.P Valves and Dacor equipment.  We will service other makes of equipment subject to being able to obtain parts.

Regulators & BCDs

Regulator Service

€47.50 labour cost PLUS cost for parts (included in the service are the cleaning / servicing of attached accessories such as inflator hoses / octo)

Due to recent increased prices from UK suppliers (where most dealerships are) the typically cost of a full regulator is between €85 - 100 for most brands (including first stage, second stage and octo kits and we only use recommended parts and official authorised manufacturers’ service kits.

Our turn-around time is normally a week to 10 days but in come cases with unusual / non-European brands of regulators, stocking or getting service kits can cause delays and we will do out utmost to get your regulator back to you as soon as possible.

Mouthpieces, when defective / holed or hoses in poor condition / leaking will be replaced but the cost is not included in the prices quoted here. Defective parts will always be returned to you not for re-use but rather as proof that these were removed & replaced.

Oxygen Servicing

Use of SCUBA equipment with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) requires that, in some cases, special procedures are needed to ensure that the equipment is suitable cleaned of contaminants and that materials are oxygen compatible.  Some manufacturers allow their regulators from new to be used with mixtures with an Oxygen component of 40% or less.  Standards recommend that cleaning is carried out for any mix over 25%, which is in line with European and the Association of Offshore Diving Contractors (AODC) practice.  A lot depends on the air quality output of the filling compressor (see below).  We recommend that if you are going to use your regulator and cylinder with Nitrox on a regular basis to get it cleaned and keep it that way.  That means that you need to have your cylinder filled from a compressor whose output contains less than 0.1mg/m3 oil mist in addition to meeting the usual air quality standards

Air Quality Analysis

Breathing quality air is produced to two standards, BS 4275 or BS EN 12021.  Traditionally air quality analysis was carried out with Dräeger type tubes that required the inspector to make a subjective judgment.  Ambient conditions and the method of sampling could affect readings and differences between inspectors reading the same sample showed up the flaws in this method.  Modern air quality testing is better achieved by spectrometer and gravimetric methods that provide quantitative readings rather than an inspectors opinion.  A hybrid standard comprising the best of the two can be used to ensure breathable air quality.   

EU Directive 89/686/EEC implies that any person or company supplying air for breathing purposes should test the air to ensure that it complies with the standard (EN 12021).
