After several years of use and despite regular washing in fresh water the quick connects for my drysuit and BC feeds are getting sticky.  The little ball bearings are not quite as free moving as there once were.  Is there any way to service them or is it just easier to buy new hoses?

<font color='#728FCE'>Try soaking them in a 50/50 mix of spirit vinigar(the clear type), rinsing in clean water and then, if only using air, lub them with some spray slicone grease. Or there is always your LDS.

If you want you can use the vinigar neat, but don't leave it in too long otherwise it'll take the chrome off!

Cheers
Chris

Try your LDS - I had the same problem and they (LDS) have the proper cleaning fluids. Only takes a quick dunk, a rinse and blow dry with an air gun - a "while you wait job".
