The Maltese Pea Cake
What can I expect to pay to have my Apex reg. set (1st, 2nd, octo) serviced to continue use with EAN to 40% please? And is it true they usually come back needing further attention?
Regulator servicing - 1st and 2nd stage inc oct and gauges £40.00 (parts not included. We cover all makes. Price for parts depends on models/makes)
Thanks, I actually heard more than one person speak well of Amphibian....and sounds a reasonable price too.Nicholas
As you are based in London, I would strongly suggest you take them to Jim @ Amphibian in South Norwood. No idea on price, but his servicing is spot on. - London Dive Shop
A lot of people are of the mindset "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". However, some shops 'servicing' leaves a lot to be desired There are plenty of horror stories on here.
A small adjustment to the IP (intermediate pressure - from the first stage) is sometimes needed after a couple of dives as the new parts 'bed in'. Generally, a decent shop will re-adjust regs they have serviced after a couple of dives, if necessary.
Actually, found the following on the Amphibian site regarding pricing.....
That's the issue - there are (or at least used to be) a lot of not so good ones. The problem is speed/laziness IMO and the failure to cycle the reg a few times after the new seats are fitted - works OK in the shop then after a dive it gives problems because it has been bedded in.....
Find a good tech and you shouldn't have any problems. ...
