The Key Largo Dive Center is a full service facility. We are Authorized Dealers and our factory trained technicians are able to provide overhaul, repair, and service to Atomic Aquatics, Dive Rite, Oceanic, Zeagle and Hollis regulators and dive gear. We utilize the manufacturer’s approved parts kits for all overhaul and service work.
We disassemble, ultrasonic clean, and inspect all regulator components. We corrosion dip and re-clean as required. O-rings and seats are replaced as per the manufacturer’s requirements. The regulator is rebuilt, tested and adjusted for intermediate pressure. Next it is tested on a Magnehelic for inhalation cracking pressure calibration. If applicable the environmental chambers are refilled (Atomic Aquatics). Hoses are checked for damage and the entire unit is leak tested.
Come dive with us then leave your regulators with us for servicing.

You can mail your unit to us or drop it off at the dive shop. Better yet, come dive with us then leave your regulators with us for servicing. We will ship them back to you when they are completed. Our prices are very competitive and you will be very satisfied with our service. We charge $35 per stage for labor plus the respective parts kits. We overhaul Atomic Aquatics swivel hoses for $10 plus parts.
A typical regulator includes a First stage, a Second stage, and either another Second stage octopus or a safe second unit.
Certain Atomic Aquatics regulators require environmental chamber re-fills at servicing. We can also convert your non-sealed First stage Atomic Aquatics to an environmentally sealed unit for no added labor cost during overhaul, just the cost of parts (an added seal) and the environmental fill.
More Information About Regulator Service and Repair
We often hear divers say that they did not need regular service work on their regulators. Many armchair divers claim that overhauls are just scams to make money for dive shops. You can believe the ignorant or check out some of these regulators. These are not uncommon photos but rather surprisingly very typical. Is this the mold you are breathing into your lungs at depth? Does your regulator have hidden corrosion? Is this what’s hiding inside your regulator? Your broken parts?
Regulators are your most important piece of life support equipment and they require regular servicing as recommended by their manufacturers. The recommended service interval for most Atomic regulators is 2 years or 300 dives whichever occurs first. Don’t forget that your BCD inflator or SS1 safe second also requires regular servicing. We recommend annual servicing for these.
You can ship us your regulator for service. We can ship it back to you when finished or you can pick it up on your upcoming Key Largo dive trip. Don’t risk missing out on dives because your regulator malfunctions. We see this happen many times by divers who fail to regularly service their gear.
Corrosion can lead to increased wear beyond the manufacturer’s tolerances. Hidden damage may result in catastrophic failure at depth when you are out of sight or out of reach of your dive buddy. If you are lucky all it may do is ruin your expensive dive vacation.
