    I guess that all depends upon which definition of "professional" is being used :)



    A common misbelief then :grin:



    :OMG: No comment.
  2. A professional?...:D:D:D:D:D good luck with that!

    Ok, this subject has been almost done to death multiple times on this forum and others. The big question is...

    How about this? https://www.dropbox.com/s/9z6kxtz4ckjorfp/APEKS%20O-Ring%20Specifications_Dimensions.pdf?dl=0

    Is your eyesight going? that's the 2018 catalogue :grin:

    I suspect Scubagaskets has recently had a "smackdown", the names Apeks and Aqualung have disappeared from their parts in the last couple of weeks (using APE and Aqua in stead), and they now state...

    So with two 2nd stage kits that's roughly 35 inc VAT, so not wildy off what I paid.

    Good luck with that, just like this new European Super League - don't get me started! It's a closed shop, no-one is going to stick their heads above the parapet.

    I don't have a price list, I only...

    Lowly path...more like a lonely path as an independant. I won't divulge the actual price or my sources, but for a 1st and 2 x 2nd stage kits 35-40.

    Genuine Apeks kits are no longer sold in plastic bags, all cardboard and paper envelope style packaging.
  12. As far as I know, Apeks Marine are no longer...

    As far as I know, Apeks Marine are no longer supplying kits from UK, they're now being shipped from France, and taking several weeks to arrive. Another excuse to up the prices and charge extra for...

    They're made of brass, they don't rust, they corrode when exposed to water.
    AFAIK, for drying when serviced, they may use clean compressed air to blow the miosture out, put them in a drying cabinet...

    It's not just Apeks, it all the manufacturers.

    Back to your point about service kits having dates on them, I don't know any manufacturer (Apeks, Cressi, ScubaPro, Beuchat, Oceanic etc etc) that...

    Difference being, the technicians/mechanics at a car dealership will have been trained and certified to work on your car, I'm quite prepared to pay for that.

    Paying for the rinky dink lds shop lad...

    I'd doubt there is very much profit in regs, bottom or top end. It's the repeat business, charging 70, 80, 90+ for annual/biennial servicing with parts that literally cost just a few quid, that's...

    Ok Iain, act II...if the rinky dink LDS shop lad etc. in your opinion, shouldn't be servicing regs etc. Who should be trusted to do it, correctly, reliably and without ripping people off?

    Amen to that.

    Apeks Flights are different and use different service kits, not sure about the XL4 or MTX, not seen inside them yet

    A Ubiquiti AC AP Pro would give you everything except a "couple of ethernet ports" - it only has a single secondary ethernet port.

    Great bit of kit and highly recommended.
