Aqua Lung recalls some Powerline inflators

Diving-equipment manufacturer Aqua Lung is carrying out a voluntary product update of Powerline inflators on all Aqua Lung (but not i3) and Apeks Black Ice BCs sold since the start of 2015.

Divers with an inflator with a date code beginning with an H should not dive with the BC again until they have taken it to their nearest authorised Aqua Lung retailer or dive-centre for a free update under warranty.

 Aqua Lung says that although there have been no reported problems under water to date, it is concerned that a failure might occur during a dive should the Powerline continue to inflate after the inflation button has been released, with the consequent risk of an uncontrolled ascent.

The update involves replacing the button and button cover, and a new marking of two dots after the H or a central dot will indicate that the unit has been updated. Find more information here

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
