    Question Low pressure inflator service

    My inflator hose connection is getting a bit stiff to use.

    At guess I would make up a mild vineger solution and leave it to soak a bit so it dissolves salt deposits.

    Is this correct, should I do something else or am I better just replacing the hose?

    Cheers,
    Mikael
    Why is it that with everything in life I always find a more difficult way of doing it (and not intentionally)

    If you have access to an ultrasonic bath put it in that for a few minutes and that will dissolve all the crud off it but steeping in white vinegar (I tend to mix it 50/50 with water) will also clean it up

    Vinegar for me, I use it on everything l, pull back the collar and jiggle it around a bit too so the vinegar can get into all the nooks and crannies

    Hi,

    I use one of these and think they are very good - https://www.simplyscuba.com/products...KqEALw_wcB:G:s

    White vinegar is also excellent for cleaning when needed.

    That’ll clean the inflator but not the hose, it could be a useful tool but depends where the issue is.

    ah yes sorry misread the question. I find it good for keeping the inside of the power inflator and bcd clear of sand/grit etc.
