BCD Servicing

Manufacturer’s leaflets all advise that BCDs should be serviced regularly.

A service will cover the following:

  • Checking pull cord, straps and cam band for damage or fraying
  • Checking buckles and clips for cracking and wear
  • Servicing inflator and direct hose feed quick release connector
  • Cleaning inside the bag with a fungicide / bacterial cleaner
  • Cleaning or replacement of the direct feed probe and its filter
  • Cleaning the overpressure and dump valves, replacing seals as necessary
  • Leak testing the bag, the non-return valves and all connections


The cost of a BCD service is typically £20-£25 plus parts, if needed.

We normally require two weeks to service BCDs.

If you have an urgent need then please ask, if we can’t meet your requested time-scales then we will tell you.
