When Should You Service Your Regulator?
A general rule of thumb for regulator servicing, similar to BCD servicing, is that your regulator should be serviced every 100 dives or annually. Whichever comes first. For most recreational divers this will lead to a once per year servicing that will ensure your gear will continue performing for many years. Some manufacturers do recommend an inspection every year and a full service every two years so you should check what your manufacturer recommends. You should also be mindful of your obligations to the manufacturer to ensure that your warranty remains valid. With many manufacturers this does mean that you have to keep your gear serviced at 12 month intervals from a certified service center such as ours.
If you are a dive shop owner or instructor who utilizes your equipment in chlorinated pool water regularly you should consider having your gear serviced more frequently. Chlorinated water can speed up the deterioration of internal components of your regulator.
