IMPORTANT NOTE FOR DELIVERIES OUTSIDE OF UK MAINLAND:
Due to aviation regulations the cylinder and valve will be shipped disasembled. It will be the customers responsibility to have the cylinder and valve re-assembled

Important Notice:

Cylinders that may during normal use lose all gas pressure above ambient when underwater, such as side-mount, bail-out, marker buoy, buoyancy compensator and suit inflation cylinders are at a greater risk of water ingress and internal corrosion when empty.

If fresh water is present in a cylinder this can mean the loss of more than 2 mm of the thickness of the cylinder wall within 6 months. This is increased to more than 5 mm in the presence of salt water. (Diving cylinder walls are generally between 2 and 5 mm thick). While testing of diving cylinders remains at 2.5 years for an internal visual and 5 years for a full hydrostatic test in the UK, a more frequent visual inspection by a certified test centre for suit inflation cylinders is recommended).

Recommended practice includes:

  • Never allow suit inflation cylinder to fully empty underwater
  • Storing cylinders with at least 2 bar of pressure in them
  • Keeping/transporting any empty cylinder with valve closed
  • Drying and capping valves when regulator is not attached
  • Periodic check against moisture/water buildup in cylinder
