Diving Equipment

It is not always obvious when your equipment needs maintenance or replacement, especially after a long break from diving. Some less obvious problems can easily slip under your radar. We all know that equipment failures can and do happen, but these failures still catch divers off guard.

Some gear you can assess yourself; others will need to be serviced by a qualified technician. 

If you have purchased any new gear during the time you were not diving, be sure to thoroughly familiarize yourself with it before you get back in the water.

Inspect Your Gear Before Your Dive Trip

Take care of your gear, and your gear will take care of you. This is especially important if you have been away from diving for an extended period and your gear was unused.
