    I would call the manufacturer directly and tell them your predicament. You may be able to send them back to the factory.

    If you do switch manufacturers, the situation is the similar with Scubapro. Basically, the free parts for life program are completely at the discretion of your dive shop. Unless you decide to lawyer up, that is... but I'd bet you'll need that receipt if you do... and a lawyer will probably cost way more. But it would probably feel pretty great.

    I believe the PFL program with Scubapro is not only service intervals but you have to buy a computer, reg, and BC to qualify - if I remember correctly.

    Ah yes, I guess I forgot they added all those requirements.

    I was under the impression it was not always that way and it is something they required in more recent years.

    I get the occasional part for Apeks regs from deepstop.de who has them in stock, and will ship worldwide.
    Apeks 1st stage kits are 28 euros
    Apeks 2nd stage kits are 13 euros
    Apeks conversion kits for the 5th LP port are 34 euros

    Prices include 19% german sales taxes which if ordering from outside of the EU, you won't have to pay, and shipping for a padded envelope or small box from Germany isn't expensive either.

    Since I have a good working relationship with my local O-Ring shop, I usually just buy the O-Rings that I want to replace and rarely have to buy a service kit.
