Q.1 How often should I get my gear serviced?
All manufacturers will have a slightly different policy on service intervals for their gear. Generally, an annual service is required for most gear, to keep it in warranty. Some manufacturers, such as Oceanic and Hollis, have a two year service interval, and only require an inspection every year. To be sure, bring your items in and our staff can check for you.
Q.2 Where can I get my gear serviced?
At Academy of Scuba! We can service most brands with our in-house technician, so bring your equipment in and if we cannot service it, we will send it to a 3rd party service centre for you.
