    Well if he sends it to me I'll sort it for him unless it's completely toast.

    From the dive rite inflators - the five O-rings found in the power inflation mechanism:
    112-V90B,
    012-V90B,

    They're all standard sizes.

    112 same as a din reg
    011 012 reg hoses
    006 are the only specific ones

    Thank you for your kind offer, I'm sorted now but unforunately the death inflator is on its way to a bin!!

    Took it with me when I went to pick up cylinders from testing today as the guy offered to have a look at it for me...

    1) there was far too much grease in it from the service I had done and as a result some grit was in it... Bunged it in the bath and reassembled but still was sticking

    2) we investigated further and it's actually the spring that has degraded meaning the button is getting stuck down. I've put a new spring in it but it's a bit thick and hard to push the button now.

    3) cheapest place to source the inflators is by getting on the right side of someone with a trade account it seems! New inflator should be here Tuesday ready for more diving!

    Had two lovely dives to end my seasearch observer course today with my working wing!

    Agree - I have hundreds of dives on one of those and they are cheap enough to chuck away instead of fix. Just bought a dozen for the club BCDs!

    If you are really poor the valve internals are generally the same as an industrial tyre valve...

    I've since been told that the tyre valves aren't stainless steel/marine grade metal and that I shouldn't "really" use them...

    Not that it matters, a Beaver inflator is on its way to me now!

    My Oh My Chrisch, I just do hope that you have some solid evidence to back up your completely fictitious and I'm almost certain Libellous (in legal terms = a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation; a written defamation) comment. Beaver Sports sell around 3,500 BCD Inflators each year, which is a reflection on the quality standards of inflators fitted as OEM by many brands. The amount of these that my Company sells amazes us here in Beaver's office and we have discussed frequently the amount of crap which must be out there to warrant this. Please provide some evidence within seven days to back up your claim to avoid legal action being taken. Martin Walker, Managing Director, Beaver Sports (Yorks) Ltd.
