    Servicing reg/octo

    I bought my whole diving setup in about april. I have used all of my equipment many times and i know that certain things need to be serviced at specific intervals. What is the low down on taking a reg/octo in for a pro to look over. about how much does it cost, how often should i do it, and what is usually included in the service?

    the time is once a year, with some exceptions, like scubapro and atomic are 2 years ( i believe)
    price, around here is 55+ parts (usually)
    people say BC's need to be checked over too...

    from what I understand its around $100 with typ. parts and you should service once a year. that is if you dive the equipments or not.

    that's ridiculous!

    as mentioned - for regs - once per year mostly. if your reg is of a "exotic" brand you may have hard time finding a service place. make sure you test your reg after servicing it in relativele shallow water. i keep hearing that sometimes there are problems with serviced regs.

    My nearest shop is the same way.. I'm going to be sending my Reg into ST after I get back from the Caymans for it's yearly. Also I won't have to drive an hour!

    Atomic's service interval is 2 years, but nearly every other manufacturer (including ScubaPro) is every year.

    Note that all manuf's, incl. Atomic, say that interval should be shortened and service more frequently if you are diving heavily (say, over 300 dives per year, which many instructors and commercial divers hit quite easily). Sadly, that is not a problem for me...

    Just got Fooman2's reg serviced at ST...it was $49.95 plus parts. It ended up being about $70 give or take. Not a bad price to pay to stay alive underwater. Good luck!
