Servicing of regulators
After a dive, place the regulator in fresh water for an hour. During washing press all the buttons and turn the levers to get rid of the small particles inside. Rinse the first and second steps under the running water to wash away all the particles. In the process of desalination, it is very important that water does not go into the first stage. You can leave the regulator connected to the cylinder or, if this is not possible, close the first stage with a dust cap or your thumb. Before placing the dust cap on to the first stage wipe it with a towel.
After desalination, dry the regulator, keep it away from direct sunlight and store in a cool dry place.
It is best to store the regulator in a bag specifically designed for it .
Regulators must be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer's rules, usually once a year.
