What happens during an Apeks regulator service?

Once Jim receives your Apeks regulators for servicing, he’ll give them a once over to inspect them for any major issues that stand out before he gets to work.

He’ll then completely strip your regs down to their bare bones, disassembling every single component. He’s got so many tools in his little man cave workshop that there’s a servicing tool for every nut, bolt, and connection that exists on your Apeks regs.

Certain parts are completely replaced during your Apeks regulator service. Jim only uses official servicing kits for these.

Jim photographs all your reg parts at this stage (everyone loves a before and after photo!) and catalogues them in your servicing file.

The rest are given a warm, soapy bath to remove all the general dirt that’s accumulated since your last overhaul.

The metal parts get placed in an ultrasonic bath with a specialist reg cleaning solution designed to remove all corrosion and has been proven to protect and polish the shiny chrome.

Everything then gets rinsed, dried and carefully inspected for wear, tear or damage. If there are any issues identified at this stage (or at any stage of your Apeks regulator service), Jim will give you a call as this could mean an extra bit of cash is needed to replace the part in question.

Once everything is squeaky clean, the camera comes out again for another photo of the parts. Don’t worry – Jim will include your before and after photos in your servicing report!

Everything is reassembled along with those new parts from the Apeks regulator servicing kits using oxygen-compatible grease. Your hoses will be cleaned, dried and reassembled with new o-rings. Even your low-pressure inflator hose gets a new Schrader valve (attention to detail or what?!) Your gauge is disassembled and new o-rings are fitted to the spindle.

Everything gets bench tested (you should see the gauges, dials and general jiggery-pokery he has for this) to make sure your Apeks regulators are tuned to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Then as a final check, your regs get dunked in our training tank to check for leaks.

Last but not least, your regs are dried and disinfected and ready for you to pick up and Jim will email you your service record.
