We do not service diving gear at this time. However, in order to ease your search for equipment service, we have compiled a list of helpful resources.
Tanks hydrostatic and visual testing. Andersons Scuba, a short 20 minute drive, has the fastest turnaround time because they do these tests onsite. They also service basic diving gear. However, they will not service aluminum cylinders manufactured 1990 or prior. Ace Fire in Palo Alto can hydro cylinders manufactured prior to 1990 but they do not viz them (no sticker included).
Regulators, BCDs. We are finding that a popular option is for divers to send their gear out to a dedicated diving service center such as A1 Scuba. A1 Scuba has an online service form to make it easy and decent turnaround times. Some other options are listed below.
Suunto dive computers . You can send them directly to Suunto. Or, try Dolphin Swim and Scuba. They are a Suunto service center. Most shops cannot service Suunto because they need to be licensed service centers for Suunto.
Drysuits and wetsuit repair. Try contacting the manufacturer or one of the dive shops or repair facilities mentioned. Many have helpful online forms with shipping instructions. Otter Bay Wetsuits in Monterey may be able to help you with drysuit and wetsuit repairs. They have been in the business for a long time and many of our staff have had success with their service.
