When servicing regulators we find all sort’s of problems with equipment. On the whole most regulators are well looked after and cared for by our customers. Well it is life support equipment for you whilst underwater.
There are some very simply checks that can be done.
Here is a example where 2 holes have appeared in an old well used mouthpiece on a secondary regulator. These holes will cause a wet breathe by an unsuspecting diver in an out of air situation.
The 2nd (black) mouthpiece have degradation of the rubber from age, causing it to crack and become brittle.
Check your dive equipment regularly, ideally immediately before a dive for functionality and any obvious faults. This problem here is a matter of simply changing the mouthpiece.
Carry a small spares kit with you for quick personal repairs.
The 1st photo shows cracks (the left regulator is cracked the right is a new replacement) that are internal and only identified on a service.
All our equipment servicing includes a full internal inspection for faulty or failing parts and replaced bringing the equipment back to manufacturers specific standards.
