Equipment Service

East Coast Divers provides service for all parts of the scuba system. We are certified service technicians for dozens of brands as well as experienced service providers for Regulators, Cylinders, BC’s, Wetsuits, Drysuits, Masks, Fins, Dive Computers, and much more. Every service we provide comes with a 1-year warranty unless otherwise noted. This means we will back up any service we have provided by offering free mid-season tuning and full product support. Services we offer are outlined below along with benefits provided by the East Coast Divers Scuba Diving Equipment Service Department.

1 Year or 100 Dive Warrantee

All service provided is guaranteed for 1 year. Receive free mid-season tune-ups to keep your equipment tip-top till it’s next service is due. We back up the work that we do and want our customers safe and happy.

Fast and Predictable Turn-Around Times

Turn around time is subject to parts on hand. Needing to order parts can possibly add weeks or even occasionally months to service time. When this occurs it is often out of our control due to manufacturing parts availability. As service time changes you will be notified ASAP.

Rush Service Available

If you absolutely need your gear in less than 2 weeks we can often make that happen. Our service techs seldom travel at the same time and as long as a technician is available we can often have equipment turned around in a day or two if parts are on-hand. For “front of the line” expedition (within 3 days. Typically less) an additional $50 fee will be assessed. For next day service (only available at the discretion of the service technician) an additional $100 fee will be assessed.

* For All Rush Services – If we are unable to meet your need by date for any reason we will provide one of our rental regulators for free for your trip or up to 1 month *

Serviced, Checked, then Checked Again

After items are serviced they are rigorously tested. Then the item is hung for 24 to 48 hours to allow the seats to set. The item is then checked by another tech and finally checked a final time upon pick up.

Parts On Hand

With our active repair department, we keep over $15,000 of parts in stock at all times. This means we can service your gear and get it back to you faster than anyone! We only use high-quality replacement parts that meet or exceed manufacturer standards.

OUR SERVICES

Regulator/Valve Service

Scuba regulators are made to be robust pieces of equipment. They need to be able to work in some very hostile environments and if one were to fail every opportunity has been taken to ensure the reg fails in the open position (too much as opposed to no air). Unfortunately, they are finely tuned pieces of equipment. Plus, water, especially saltwater, causes a lot of wear and tear.

Here at ECDivers, we overhaul regulators every day. We deal with many different brands/models and designs. We don’t unnecessarily service equipment if it doesn’t need it and we can polish a ball of corrosion that was once a first stage back to its shiny glory. Check out our available services below.

A divers BC is ultimately responsible for the diver’s positioning in the water. From descents to neutral buoyancy, controlled ascents, and positive buoyancy at the surface the BC does all the heavy lifting so to speak. Unfortunately, a BC that won’t hold air or one that inflates itself can take a dive from fun to frustrating and even dangerous.

Most divers don’t service their BC’s when then do their Regulators but they should. Saltwater is just as tough on your BC as it is on the rest of your gear. It’s important to make sure it can keep you safe and having fun.

Your dive computer is the best decompression related information you have from dive to dive. As divers, we have to track our personal decompression obligations and dive computers are the most popular way to do that. Over 85% of divers use dive computers but without proper service, you’re at risk of your dive computer failing in the middle of a dive trip or worse, in the middle of a dive.

Our dive computer services are based around Battery changes and function testing. There are very few adjustments that dive centers can make to any of the computers available today. Some units can be sent back for service under certain situations. Our computer services are as follows.

Scuba cylinders are the only piece of dive equipment that is regulated by the U.S. government. Due to DOT regulations, cylinders need to be hydrostatically inspected every 5 years and industry standards require visual cylinder inspections to happen annually.

We do all of our tank servicing in-house with the exception of hydro inspections. Due to this please allow up to 4 weeks for hydros.

At East Coast, we fill all the major gases that divers need. We offer Air fills by individual fills or in a 10 fill card. We offer Nitrox fills up to 100%. Our Nitrox system allows us to Fill cylinders up to 40% without the need to O2 clean cylinders and valves. We can also fill O2 clean cylinders with any percentage without risking contamination. Along with Nitrox we also have the ability to blend trimix. We fill any mix and maintain a stock of Helium. We even have an inlet on our fill panel to fill off previously filled cylinders. Our mixed gas fill station also features Haskel gas boosters as well as high-pressure storage bottles allowing us to fill up to 4500psi for Scott packs and paintball cylinder.

Air and Premix Fills

Custom Fills

Anyone certified as a Gas Blender through East Coast Divers can blend their own cylinders and not pay the blending fees. For more info on our Blending Course click HERE.

All fills are priced per single scuba rated cylinder. Fills outside of our standards will be filled and priced using a prorated system.

We reserve the right to refuse fill service to any cylinder if we believe it poses a risk to our staff and/or facility.
