Inolved In Servicing A Regulator
When we get a regulator
in for service, the first thing we do is check all the hoses for cracks,
leaks & any other defects. We also make sure the mouth piece doesn't
have cracks or holes in them. We then replace all orings on both ends
of all the hoses including
all orings in the pressure gauge. We then check the battery voltage levels
in the dive computer & replace the battery when needed. Then we remove
all the rubber parts and the seats
internally and replace with factory quality
parts. We use Christo-Lube on all
regulators regardless of age. Christo-Lube is a very expensive, Oxygen
compatible, lubricant that works under all conditions(heat,cold, salt
Then all the metal parts go into our special cleaning solution to remove
all oxidation, corrosion and salt crystals. Once the regulator and all
of its components are cleaned, dried and lubricated we then start our
assembly process, every piece is torqued and adjusted to factory specifications.
At Aquatech, we have thorough checks and balance procedures we follow
to make sure your regulator is serviced and adjusted properly. This ensures
it performs perfectly when it leaves our shop. All of our customers are
invited,at any time,to watch this process in action. We will explain the
servicing process to you as we go through it in great detail.
