Was just curious ... are there any other members of Aqualung Sport Diving Assn. out there, besides myself? I'm looking for an old dive buddy of mine from the 80's. His name was Matt and he was the one that taught me to hydro tanks and overhaul Royal Aqua Master regulators. I'd really like to locate him. Thought this would be a good place to look.
Hey, check out this video of where I dive. Terry is diving with his USD DW Mistral.
Most Oceanic regulators are very simular to Poseidon regulators. I've serviced both. If you have trouble finding a shop that services Oceanic equipment, look for one that services Poseidon. Good luck! (if you are use to a side breather, you might not like other single hose regs.)
You might want to check this out. My suggestion, if you don't know how to service Oceanic, or Poseidon, second stages, get someone to do it for you who does. There is a pin, that holds the lever the LP seat is attached to, that is a pain to work with if you don't know what your doing. You might save money buying a service kit; then, finding a shop to install it. The first stages are as simple as any other first stages to service.
If you switch to US Divers (a.k.a. Aqualung), I highly recomend the Royal Aquamaster regulators. Look for one with a round label on the can and a yoke rated at 3500 psi. They are a little different than a single hose to dive with. Once you learn to clear one, they work much better then most single hose regulators.
