Every low season all BCD’s, regulator sets are taken apart and cleaned in the ultra-sonic machine. To ensure our quality standards we replace used parts with new S’Pro service-kits on BCD’s, Regulators and first stages.

Each tank get visually inspected at least once per year and gets a hydrostatic test every 5 years
After each diving trip the equipment is checked, if its working perfectly and parts are replaced where necessary. Even the tiny parts cannot escape our eagle eyes!
