As a Cold Northeast diver without a drysuit, I use this time of year to have all my servicing done, so when the season starts your’re the first in the water whether its hydros, vips, regs, bcd, etc...... How bout you???

[Choose #3] I like to get it in at the end of the dive year so it is detailrd of the stuff I didn’t get off after my last dive. It does not let things grow in my LIFE SUPPORT EQUIPMENT all winter.

[Choose #1] The dive season never ends! I will admit, though that it does slow down a bit in February.

[Choose #2] Until I found out there are no standards and my local LDS (authorized center) screwed my regs and doesn’t care.

[Choose #4] I never, never have had any of my gear serviced.. 560 dives and doing fine... Your just asking for more problems if you do have it serviced..

[Choose #3] I guess those in the tropical locations don’t have many to cold to dive days....

[Choose #4] This is the time for diving, summer is for sailing, biking..

[Choose #1] I’ve made the investment in spare gear so I always have something to dive with. I don’t believe in a dive season I dive all year long.
