    Odd. I would've thought the adjustment knob braces the balance chamber end enough to prevent it being broken through.

    A serious HP leak in the first stage ?

    What was the IP pressure reading coming out of the 1st stage?

    ScubaPro MK-2 first, 156 second. IP was 145. Spring is not in photo for clarity. Wondering if balance chamber had a defect..... never seen that before.

    Last rebuild was 4+ years ago.

    Wife who does this for a living in a Scubapro shop says that the balance chamber is FUBAR. Should be closed at one end.
