Equipment Servicing at DIVE Northampton
To have your Regulator Serviced or Computer Battery changed and Pressure Tested, simply package them up and send them to us. We will do what is needed and give you a call to take payment when everything is ready to come back to you. Make sure you supply your contact details and address and we would recommend using an insured carrier. You may want to remove any additional items that don't require servicing (Transmitter / Gauge etc) to reduce the weight and risk of postage.
Return Postage is free and will use an appropriate signed-for service. Click a Button below to generate an address label.
Regular servicing of all of your diving equipment is essential. Some servicing is a legal requirement and your cylinders will not be filled unless they are within their test period. Regulators supply you with your breathing gas underwater and need to be serviced in line with the Manufacturter's recommendations and good old common sense. Dry suits seals have a habit of tearing just before a dive. DIVE Northampton has it's own in-house team of Service Technicians for your Regulator, BCD, Dive Computer and Dive Watch servicing. Dry Suit repairs and Cylinder tests go to our local Service Centre and are usually back to us in a week.
We will usually quote a one week turnaround for most servicing work but please let us know if you need it back sooner and we'll do what we can to help.
We are able to service the overwhelming majority of regulators on-site. If for any reason we are unable to service your regulator, our off-site technicians will normally be able to help. There are however a small number of obsure manufacturers that we are unable to service and we will advise you on these when checking the regulator in. As a general rule, a first and second stage service with an alternate second stage octopus will cost from approximately £85. This includes the costs of the standard manufacturer's service kits and includes return postage. Some makes and models will cost slightly more (Oceanic / Hollis / Scubapro) and we will happily quote you for the anticipated cost if you contact us. Equally, there will be a charge for any parts needed during a service that isn't included in the manufacturer's kits. These would typically include a replacement mouthpiece or additional cleaning due to significant salt build-up.
Dive Computers & Watches
We can fit replacement batteries and pressure test most makes and models of Dive Computer and Watch. Some, like early Uwatec (Scubapro) Computers, have to be sent to Scubapro UK for a battery change. Equally, some are no longer able to have a replacement battery fitted. Where the manufacturer has to fit the replacement battery, we will arrange this for you. On those occasions where this is no longer possible, we will endeavour to arrange an upgrade package for you. Examples of some prices are from:
Puck Style Computer - from £30 to £50
Watch Style Computer - from £30 to £60
Watch - from £25 to £30
All of our service work is fully guaranteed. If you have any issues following a service, get straight back to us and we'll do all we can to resolve matters.
