Your diving regulator is almost certainly the most critical piece of equipment in your SCUBA arsenal, afterall, it allows you to breath safely unwater and experience the wonders of the subnautical world. A regulator is the term we use to refer our entire breathing apparatus system. It’s referred to as this because its main job is to regulate your air supply, reducing the extreme air pressure of your tank down from a tremendous 232/300 bar to a safe and breathable ambient pressure.
Regulators are comprised on three components: The First Stage, Second Stage and your Octopus. They're usually purchased together as a set, although the parts can also be bought seperately.
While it's possible and safe to rent regulators, many divers prefer to own their own equipment as it allows them to really get to know their gear and have confidence in it (you know exactly when your reg was last serviced, for instance).
We stock a large range of diving regulators and accessories perfect for all your dive needs from top diving brands such as Apeks, Aqualung, Mares & Scubapro.
Regulators are extremely vital to any diver and should be fully understood. If you are new to diving or looking for something different we suggest that you speak to a member of our team. They will be able to guide you, advise you and help you find a regulator to suit all of your needs and expectations.
