Dive Equipment Servicing
Regular servicing of your scuba equipment is very important to ensure safe, reliable performance and to ensure your expensive kit has a long life. If you are planning a dive trip or holiday, we would strongly recommend that you have your dive equipment serviced well in advance, and that you use it prior to departing on your trip. Regulators in particular can require a final tweak in adjustment to achieve optimum performance.
Regulators should be serviced at regular intervals depending upon the time and amount of use they have. Furthermore, as some manufacturers offer a lifetime guarantee with their products, it is important to keep the servicing up to date.
Cylinders have test dates and are subject to regulations, if your cylinder is out of date or in poor condition JC Scuba Ltd have the right to refuse to fill it.
JC Scuba Ltd want to ensure you are totally 100% happy with your kit and that is has been serviced to your satisfaction. We offer a full equipment servicing and repairs service. Our cylinder testing is carried out by independently trained IDEST technicians to standards set out by the HSE. All work is carried out to manufacturer’s specifications using genuine parts by manufacturer and ASSET trained servicing personnel.
JC Scuba Ltd testing facility is periodically inspected by IDEST engineers to make sure the methods and statements laid out in our documentation are adhered to. Our engineers are also periodically assessed in their competence. Feel free to ask each engineer for their certification as well as the centre documentation.
Servicing times do vary but we aim to have your equipment serviced and returned to you within two weeks. However, this time may increase if parts are unavailable or if demand for servicing is unusually high during the peak seasons of the dive calendar.
Please advise us in advance should you require a faster turnaround time.
Equipment brought into the shop for servicing or testing, not collected within three months of notification of completion of works, JC Scuba Ltd will have the right to sell the equipment to re-coup the expense incurred for the repair / service / test, at their own discretion.
