Welcome

Tips for Gear Maintenance

The following tips will help you maintain both your personal gear as well as prepare our rental gear before it is returned to the store.

Wetsuits:

  • Rinse thoroughly inside and out with a garden hose, or in a bathtub
  • Hang the suit inside out to dry on a plastic or wooden hanger
  • Once the inside has dried, turn the suit right side out to finish drying
  • Follow the same steps for your hood and gloves

BCD:

  • Ensure that there is no water left in the BCD bladder. Inflate the BCD completely, turn the BCD upside down and deflate the BCD. The water should exit through the inflator head
  • Hang to dry on a plastic or wooden hanger

Regulators:

  • Ensure the dust cap is dried prior to replacing it on the first stage
  • Rinse thoroughly, making sure not to press the purge buttons
  • Hang to dry

Miscellaneous Items:

  • Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry
  • Check with the store for directions pertaining to specialized equipment such as lights, cameras, dry suits, etc.

And finally, make every effort to keep all gear out of the sun for extended periods of time, and do not subject gear to unnecessary abuse.
