Scuba Equipment Service and Repairs

Is your dive gear in good, safe working order? Going on a dive trip? Planning one in the future? Has your regulator and BC — your life-support equipment — been serviced recently?
Most manufacturers of scuba gear recommend full service every two years or every 100 dives.

At Denver Divers, our service technicians are certified to service the following brands:

  • Atomic
  • Hollis
  • Mares
  • Oceanic
  • Poseidon
  • ScubaPro and SubGear

We use an outside contractor and send out your equipment for the following brands:

  • Aqualung
  • Apeks
  • SeaQuest
  • Suunto
  • US Divers

Regular service of most regulators, alternate air sources on BCDs, and dive computers consists of two components - labor and parts. In order to maintain the warranty on your gear, most manufacturers require technicians to use service kits. Under routine circumstances, labor and parts costs are both predictable. The potential cost for service kits by piece ranges from $40 to $70.

Traditionally, scuba service labor is a package price rather than an hourly rate. Common labor charges you might see from Denver Divers include:



Regulator: First & Primary Second Stage $80
Alternate Air Source: Octopus or Inline $35
Surcharge - Oxygen Cleaning $25 (+ parts kit for regulator)
Surcharge - Excessive Corrosion $40
(will call first)
BCD Power Inflator or Valve Service $25
Equipment Bench Test $25
(free to Denver Divers Open Water graduates)
Equipment Assembly & Bench Test $75
(free if purchased at Denver Divers)
Dive Computer Battery Change & Test Dive $25
Cylinder Hydrostatic Inspection $35
Cylinder Visual Inspection $25

However, it is possible that your gear has been damaged and will require additional more expensive parts. If one of our technicians finds damage to other parts of your equipment, we will call you before we do the extensive repairs.

When you pick up your serviced gear, you are encouraged to test it yourself in our indoor, heated, salt-water pool. It is always a good idea to check out your gear before you leave for a trip.

The Denver Divers’ approach to service and repair includes:

  • Pre-testing to identify any unforeseen issues prior to service
  • Disassembly and reassembly with new service kits to manufacturers’ specifications
  • Hydrostatic cleaning of all regulators
  • Fine-tuning with our magnehelic testing equipment
  • Replacement of all worn parts
  • 100% final testing of all serviced and repaired equipment by a technician different from the staff member who serviced your equipment
  • “Diving” your dive computer in our new pressure pot to test accuracy and seal
  • New hose protectors
  • Free BC leak test
