    Hello, I was wondering how you determined the year based in the serial number. I am trying to do the same and having difficulty. Thanks

    Hmm, I unfortunately totally forget. Some modern google searching is failing me too. If I had to guess, I found a similar item listed on ebay/scubaboard with the actual date purchased but with a serial number very close to mine.

    If all else fails, I bet poseidon might tell you if you asked!

    They are the first two numbers, which denote the year, at least on some of the more recent second stage bodies; so too, on the first stages. The photos below illustrate both a serial number of a 2010 first and second stage.

    "200001 or 1200001 serial number, six or seven digit, [after the model number] denotes year of manufacture. 2 = 2002 ; 12 = 2012,"

    -- from the Poseidon service manuals . . .

    Scubatoys in Carrollton, Oceanic Adventures in Houston, Sea Sports Scuba in Cypress are service centers not too far away. Poseidon is offering a class in Houston on June 22 if you want to learn to service them yourself. Maybe @Tbone0608 or someone else will correct me, but it looks like you have a relief valve on your first stage so not necessary to run a hose to your second with one. Poseidon for Rec diving? Heck yeah! They are all I use.

    There is an OPV in that first stage; so a conventional hose could indeed be used . . .
