AP DIVING SERVICING PRICE GUIDELINES

We use these guidelines to work out the cost of repairing and servicing your dive equipment. Please remember, each item is assessed individually, so the price may be higher than listed below. If this is the case we’ll always tell you first before we do any further work. This list is by no means exhaustive and we can offer bespoke servicing on request. 

AP BCD SERVICING

All BCD Servicing prices below include VAT and return carriage (to UK Mainland). Please contact us for carriage costs to other locations.

BCD Service The inflator/Auto Air and Emergency air cylinder fitted to the BCD is included in the cost of the BCD service. If the inner bag is found to be punctured then the service charge does not apply. The jacket will receive a service plus inner bag replacement, but the customer will be charged for the new inner bag only. Note: Inner bags since 1985 are covered by a registered first-owner Lifetime Warranty against material deficiencies and seam failure. Damage caused after the BCD leaves the factory such as punctures or chemical damage from cleaning fluids or heavily chlorinated swimming pool water are NOT covered by the warranty. £97.90
Auto Air Service   £40.70
AP200/APV200/APV300 Inflator Service   £25.30
Mini-Cylinder & Valve Service Includes servicing the Emergency Cylinder Valve and inspecting the cylinder.
