Regulator Repair/Service Process

Your regulator is inspected to make certain the repair is not going to exceed the cost of a new unit. We then check for any applicable upgrades to the first stage, primary or secondary. If any of these is the case, you will be contacted for a decision. (An inspection fee may apply.)

  • Your regulator is tested for working pressures and the information is recorded.
  • The hoses are removed and disassembled, that is, the spindles and/or o-rings are removed.
  • The first stage, primary and secondary are disassembled.
  • After disassembly, each unit of your regulator is cleaned. The metal parts are treated in an ultrasonic bath with a mild organic acid for scale and metal oxide removal and metal brightening. Synthetic parts are cleaned via a warm mild detergent bath. All parts are then rinsed with fresh water, blown dry with filtered compressed air, and inspected under high magnification for minute internal damage.
  • Computers are cleaned on the exterior and batteries are checked for adequate charge. Scratch guards are checked and replaced if necessary.
  • Depth gauges are pressurized in a pressure-pot to a minimum of 30 feet and tested for accuracy and leaks.
  • During reassembly complete parts kits are installed as per the specific manufacturer’s specifications (this may include some or all of various o-rings, springs, valves, diaphragm and filters). Connections are torqued to manufacturer’s specifications using calibrated torque wrenches. We B Divin’ uses only oxygen compatible lubricants during reassembly.
  • After reassembly, internal pressures are checked and calibrated to manufacturer’s specifications using a flow bench.
  • The exterior of synthetic parts is treated with silicone.
  • The regulator is pressurized and also submerged to verify there are no leaks or internal pressure creep.
