    Anybody know what became of them? The web domain and the email address I had for Kevin seem to be gone.

    If he's gone out of business, does anyone know a certified Apeks tech or shop in Ottawa?

    I bring my Apeks regs to Divers Wearhouse , have done since 2011. Good service, if a bit slow from time to time.

    Thanks gcarter.

    I know about Divers Wearhouse, KDS and a few other shops. Liked Kevin because he was very good, fast and I knew who was working on my regs. I guess it will be back to one of them.

    Found out that Kevin closed his business last year.

    One of Kevin's top tech's is now working out of KDS (as is Bill Maclean, formerly of Burton's). As Kevin did not hesitate to endorse his former employee, I was happy to give KDS my business.

    Yes, Kevin has retired from the service Business. KDS would be my next choice , but since I am in Kingston I choose Dive Tec since they are closer to me.

    I withdraw any endorsement of their service.

    I just picked up my regs from EPSO where they were given a full overhaul.

    Environmental seal was at least 3-4 years old, I was told. An o-ring was installed where none belonged. The 1st stage filter was installed backwards. DW is the only place my regs have been serviced up until now. Never again.

    And EPSO turned them around in a week.
