SCUBA BCD SERVICING

ANNUAL SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE

A Scuba BCD (Buoyancy Compensator Device), like any of your scuba diving equipment, requires annual maintenance and servicing. A scuba BCD should go through a few standard checks. A positive pressure leak test to ensure that all the seams are in perfect working orders, a stress test on the Over Pressure Valves (OPV) and a detailed check of the power inflator, to ensure that there is no sticking buttons and auto-inflation issues.

The weather in Singapore dries out plastic and rubber parts. If you have not been using your scuba BCD for more than 12 months or more, it is strongly advised that you bring your BCD in for a check. The last thing that you want to experience is a broken valve or a malfunctioning power inflator.

SCUBA BCD

WHAT CAN GO WRONG WITH IT?

Maintenance of your scuba BCD (buoyancy compensator device) is one of the scuba diving equipment that is paid with the least attention. Firstly, the conventional way that scuba diving instructors teaches how to clean and rinse the BCD is a wrong method. No, we are not blaming the instructors but instructors are not technicians. They have not been through a course or seminar that covers the proper maintenance of our BCD.

Secondly, our weather does not justification to our BCD. An annual servicing and leak test is recommended to know that your BCD is working in perfect condition.

Power Inflator OR AIR SOURCE INFLATOR

Most modern power inflator consist of multiple O-Rings, Springs and/or a schrader valve. Because of the way scuba divers rinses their BCD, by adding water via the power inflator, mixing it with saltwater and emptying via the power inflator again, salt composition tends to occur in it. 

GASKETS AND OVER PRESSURE VALVE

There is constant pressure applied on your Over Pressure Valve and all gaskets of your BCD. Overtime, an indentation will occur and your BCD will lose the ability to “hold” air and will leak via the gaskets and over pressure valves. And another failure point are the springs holding your OPV.

material FATIGUE due to weather

Our harsh weather condition can quickly dry up the valves, material used for construction of your BCD, causing them to crack. A BCD that is used daily will actually last much longer than a BCD that is used once a few months. A leak test and pressure test on your valves are critical if you have not used your BCD for a long period of time.

DIVER AWARENESS MESSAGE

REPLACEMENT OF DUMP VALVES OR ELBOW VALVES(OPV).

  1. All valves are CNC machined from a single block of DelrinTM for maximum strength with an Unique LockRingTM system that provides a second level of safety
  2. From our experience, when one of your OPV or valves start to crack, there is a high chance that the rest are near breakage point. We will strongly recommend that you have all the valves changed at the same time or invest in a new BCD, whichever the cost is more economical to you.
