If you have an Air Source 3, it’s crucially important that you pack your BCD properly to avoid damaging it.
When packing your BCD, don’t unscrew the Air Source3! This can wear away the threading and cause rounding in the plastic resulting in a leak.
Instead, disconnect it at the mid-point, and tuck in the hose. Pack the bottom section with your regulator, making sure to protect the top purge valve. Failure to do so could cause the diaphragm to get dislodged, resulting in a constant free flow.
Our repair techs are seeing this damage more and more. Ask our staff to demonstrate how to pack your Airsource3 to help your gear last longer.
