TRADE IN YOUR
Since Dacor's closure
in 2004 genuine parts are no longer available with the exception
of the Viper 2nd stage, which continues to be supported by Mares
as the MV Octopus. Lack of inexpensive replacement parts for
many regulators more than 15 years old is best solved by a
trade-in. Cracked BCD elbows, dump valves, and bladder
punctures cannot be repaired but can also be traded-in, as well as
broken dive computers. Call for more information.
Regulator overhaul is recommended after 50-100 hours of use, or
12-24 months with proper post-dive care for the average user, or
sooner for professional/rental use. BCD inflators and SPG air
spools should be overhauled/replaced every 12 months.
pre-inspection and function test is conducted prior to
disassembly. In situations where the equipment is
deemed unfit or too costly to justify repairs, alternatives will
be discussed. By industry standards, once
equipment is disassembled, new o-rings and seats supplied within
factory service kits must be installed and tested
to ensure proper function; it should not be reassembled with old
parts and placed into service.
WHAT CONSTITUTES AN OVERHAUL
Complete service/overhaul includes a pre-inspection to gather
baseline performance data and note external deficiencies.
Upon disassembly any major components no longer fit for use will
be noted for replacement. Metal parts are degreased and
corrosion removed with a heated ultrasonic bath; plastic and soft
parts are degreased, scrubbed, rinsed, and dried. New parts
from the manufacturer's service kit are inspected and prepared for
reassembly according to the official service manual. After
assembly the 1st stage intermediate pressure is adjusted/set and
the 2nd stages are tuned according to manufacturer specification.
Pressure gauge swivels and BCD inflator hose valves are also
replaced. BCD's inflators are overhauled , and dump valves
are cleaned. An inflation test is conducted to locate any
leaks; bladder punctures cannot be repaired.
Aqualung, Apeks, Oceanic, Hollis, TUSA,
and Scubapro offer the original owner free service kit credit at
overhaul. To qualify the owner must provide proof of
purchase, plus uninterrupted proof of annual inspection every 12
months, and full overhaul with free kits every 24 months, +/- 30
days of purchase date anniversary except TUSA, which must be
serviced annually. It is important to adhere to this
schedule to receive credit and provide these records before
service. Check your owner's
manual for program details. Please note that service kits
may not include all parts replaced during overhaul, such as air
spools, static o-rings, and inflator hose valves.
COMPATIBILITY & OXYGEN SERVICE
Oxygen-compatible Christolube is
used for all standard work which is compatible with nitrox
containing up to 39% oxygen. Special procedures to render
components ready for oxygen-service (>39%) must be specified
Regulator seats are subject to a break-in
period that may result in a slight leak (hissing) after a few dives/2
models are more temperamental than others. While great
effort is made to account for break-in, readjustment is
provided at no additional cost in the absence of abuse, neglect,
