Discovered my very first cease and desist letter in my spam folder :-) where it had been simmering for a very long time - what can I say, I don't check my spam folder very often.

I feel very strongly that any owner of any brand of scuba regulator should be able to buy spare parts and service kits, and also have access to any manuals required to safely work on his or hers own property. Just like any car owner who can go out and buy spare parts and work on his car - a piece of machinery that has the potential to injure or kill many more people than a simple piece of equipment like a scuba regulator will ever be capable of.

Regarding professional servicing of scuba regulators i wholeheartedly agree that any professional working on scuba regulators should be certified to work on the regulator in question. But as I said before any private person should be allowed, and have access to the tools needed, to work on his personally owned equipment.

Needless to say the that I will remove the manuals by the company in question when they are made freely available to anyone. Registration required or not I'll leave that up to the manufacturers.

Help make this possible by requesting access to any manuals and material to work on your own personal scuba regulators.

I totally agree

once you bought it - it is yours and you can do whatever you want with it.
manufacturers should encourage read a service manual before attempting any jobs,
since DIY`s guys will try to service regs, regardless, with or without service manuals (just like it is with the cars)
and though divers ARE trained peoples that understand what may happens form incorrect service,
some of them may consider it too difficult, or too big of a hassle to diy after reading service manual.

Also manufacturers trainings on reg servicing is way to overpriced/tabooed/accessible

nuff said.
freedom to the divers!

I totaly agree with your own repairs

I totaly agree with you on this, if a person wants to work on their own reg they should be able too. I do think that that person should have some training from the manufacturer but there is no reason you can't fix your own gear. You allways pack your own para shoot after all.

Sorry buggered the previous comment utterly.
Just want to thank you and tell you to keep up the good work.
I collected a variety of Poseidon 1st and second stages and wanted to sort them out for my vintage collection. (Have Draeger double hose with a canvas diaphragm, Siebe Gorman Merlin Mk6- single stage double hose with a surface supply port to mention a few.)
I emailed serial numbers to Sweden to get information of which are mutually compatible.
I was referred to local agents who I sent the numbers and photos.
I got some pictures and the manual that can be downloaded which I already have.
I have found quite a few things that do not match.
My last two services of my 2 poseidons that I have used for years resulted in both of them malfunctioning.
This also happened to a buddy whose poseidon I sent with mine the previous time.
I opened up mine and reset them. Both are working now.
Maybe I should have listened to the advice that I should leave well alone and only intervene when they stop going pssseidon!!!
I am also happy to see manuals for nemrod, spiro, cressi etc so I can play with the rest of the various types I have gathered.
