Regulators should be inspected by a professional technician every year and serviced (rebuilt) according to the manufacturer's recommendations. SCUBAPRO recommends that regulators be serviced by a trained technician every 24 months or 100 dives.

When conducting a regulator inspection, the regulator is given an external inspection and leak test, the first stage filter replaced, all second stages are cleaned and inspected and all hoses are cleaned and inspected.  Any issues found are addressed and if applicable you will be informed of the need for a full service/rebuild.  

When conducting a regulator service, we completely inspect and disassemble your regulator and clean all of the parts as prescribed by the manufacturer. We replace all scheduled parts, and any other parts as needed (if corroded, for example). Once reassembled, the regulator is flow tested and tuned to the manufacturer's specifications for interstage pressures.


Tanks are required by US law to have a hydrostatic test every five years.
The US Department of Transportation requires this test, which determines the ability of the cylinder to safely hold gas under high pressure. If your cylinder does not have the proper DOT markings and current certifications, we will not fill your cylinder.

Cylinders should be visually inspected once a year.
An inspection is a technical and complete assessment, inside and out, against standards and damage limits. Cylinders that meet those standards are returned to service. This should be done at one year intervals at minimum, but heavy use (100+ dives) dictates more frequent inspections. All empty scuba cylinders are subject to a formal and properly documented visual inspection prior to fill. This is done to ensure the safety of the diver and the fill station operator.

Buoyancy Compensators should be inspected once each year.
We disassemble and clean the inflator valve, dump valve, and overpressure valves, check all the fabric, straps and buckles, and do a leak test.


Dive computers usually need a new battery every other year.
Modern dive computers batteries can last longer than a year with moderate use. Battery life is most affected by the use of a back light. If you use your back light feature frequently, you will need to replace your batteries more frequently. Most dive computers will you give a visual alert on activation if you need to change the battery.
