Tips on assembly
To not overtighten the first stage. Overtightening can damage the first stage, usually made of chrome-plated brass (a soft alloy). The O-ring on the hose is used for watertightening purposes.
Use a silicone grease to lubricate the seals and increase their lifespan.
Wear and replacement of the hoses
Repeated pressurisation of the regulator and cracks will made the hose more fragile. This type of wear, usually invisible, affects the performance of your regulator. At the worst, your hose will end up by breaking, usually at the point where it is crimped.
Regularly check your hoses and replace them if cracked.
Replace your hoses at least every 5 years.
Servicing the regulators
SUBEA-TRIBORD advises you to service your regulator every two years and to make a visual inspection at least once a year. This two inspections must be made in a SUBEA-TRIBORD certified workshop.
A service is also recommended after a particularly intensive season (more than 100 dives), or after a long period of inactivity.
Taking care of regulators
Never use solvents or hydrocarbon-based products to clean or lubricate the regulator yourself. Never use spray cans, because the gas propellent can attack the plastic.
