    Does anybody know where I might be able to source some technicians tools and Apeks parts within Oz? Outsourcing for annual service is pretty tricky for us as we're quite remote and have 7 regulators to do.

    I'm having no luck trying to contact Aqualung directly about this, despite filling out their 'become a dealer' form and repeated emails. Funny thing is that I'm a trained service technician and have completed the relevant course for our regulators.... Any tips on sourcing parts would be appreciated!

    @buddhasummer also has a source for genuine Apeks parts that may not be available from third parties.

    For example I got a height levering tool for my XTX50 second stages that I read is supposed to be better than the OEM versions. He can also get part kits.

    I too use and recommend SCT for any third party tools you might need. Good people.

    Great, thanks very much for the tips! I've tried contacting Les at Scubasafe but they don't have adequate stock at the moment because of Covid. Think I will try contacting SCT, looks like they have what I'm looking for

    I buy my tools at scubaservicetools.com they are located in the Neterlands they have the same tools as SCT but shipping to the UK is faster and cheaper.
