Question about Aeris A1 Octo

What side does the octopus go on? left or right?

Does it matter which side the Octopus is place on? I had the oct on the left with the gauges and just my main regulator on my right! My hubby has his Oct coming under his right arm and attached to the right lower part of his BCD. His regulator comes over his right shoulder, to his mouth. Is there a safety issue here? So What and why

The reason to have it on the right is because that is "standard". I dive with a long hose (7') and an octo around my neck on a 22" hose. So long as you explain it to anybody you dive with and talk about your plan for air sharing in advance, it shouldn't be an issue.

Hi Folks I think everyone thought I have a baby


I noticed another FixYa guru here answered a question on another strand that applies to yours:
Also, please note this person on FB claims to be the Lemax fix-all guru. You can ask them more specific questions:http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:0YBPB3sM28kJ:https://www.facebook.com/eHobbyTools%3Ffilter%3D2+&cd=10&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

The Knex website has building help for this problem. There answer is as follows:
Make sure all rods and connectors are fully hooked together, especially the blue and gray connectors. Even one peice not fully hooked together can twist the model just enough to jam the gears. (You may have it hooked together correctly prior to jam problems so it is good to check since I found a loose on holding the motor.) The chain links need to all be attached in the same direction, and fully hooked. The chain also needs to be on the tower with the hooks facing down and in as the chain runs on the outside of the tower. (Chain should be outside on the front and inside in the back with the 5 yellow bar side in the front.) Check that all gears are positioned correctly according to the instructions and the teeth facing the correct way. If you are still unable to get the seat to drop, you may remove the top yellow cross rod that the chain runs over - the model will also work with this piece removed.

I did all of these steps with my son and his still had trouble dropping all the time. It still seems light so the seat didn't have enough weight to drop with gravity during the non-moving cycle of the orange half gear. We decided to tape on 2 marble passengers to see if that helped. It did!!! When searching for other solutions, I noticed a UTube video that added people also so this seems to be a common solution. Try it or some other light weight added and see if it solves your problem.

Hello, there are a few things that may have happened. Often octos pick up sand and grit when they get dragged on the bottom. Try a good vigorous shake in fresh water. After that your moving into badly seated diaphram, split diaphram or slight hole, badly adjusted spring etc etc etc. Would recommend that perhaps you get it serviced. Especially important if you have been using Nitrox. Hope that helps

I have model 27 glock just purchased a serpa level 2 holster the glock travels appx. 1/4 inch. from front to back.retension system operates correctly.


Isn't the trigger guard supposed to latch into place in the holster? Is that where the retention is adj from? If not, it will move, unless it was made for the new frame with the rail on the bottom, and you have an older gun>??? Check it out. I know mine is tight, but I never mess with it, it is one of the waistband pancake jobs, I just hang my model 21 in my pants, have for 15 years, wore out all my jeans.

How do I make the connections with the main valve, I am buying a new octopus not yet assembled,


If I understand your question properly, all you need to do is remove one low pressure plug from the first stage regulator, then screw the hose end in from the new octopus.

Just got my mares proton reg back from servic it was fine before just been a year so got it serviced it is now free flowing is there a way to adjust this


Hi,

Personally, I wouldn't touch it. This should have been tested in the service so I'd get back to them and have them rectify this as it seems to be something they did..

Mares Abyss Octo, brand new, not breathing well


It's possible that the perceived free flow problem is causing a more general lack of faith with the reg?
A correctly set up reg will never be too far away from free flowing in that transition from air to water - just as you dive in. This is not uncommon and shouldn't necessarily be determined to be a fault. Some manufacturers have gotten around this issue by allowing the user to switch the 2nd stage to a less sensitive setting (small knob on side 'pre-drive' & 'dive'). This means the reg can still be set up correctly but effectively put into an incorrect (for diving) mode while you are bobbing around on the surface getting ready to go down.
The fact that the abyss doesn't have this mode doesn't mean it isn't working right. If your shop adjust the sensitivity too far, they are going to make it harder to breath with. I have a couple of Abyss and sometimes experience small free flow. Nothing to worry about. You can look it up but the reg has been down to some record breaking depths without issue.
You haven't said which is your main reg - but the poseidon system runs a much higher pressure between 1st and second stage. You absolutely should not use this octo with poseidon, unless it has been ok'd by a authorized poseidon dealership.
In summary I can't see that your two problems are linked.

Ideally, you should have someone who is certified in regulator servicing to do this for you. Otherwise, you may be endangering your life.

Scuba octopus?


An octo IS a regulator. There are two types or regulators on a typical scuba rig. Your first stage reg that is attached to your tank valve. From this first stage, there are hoses leading to your primary breathing second stage reg and your Octo second stage. The job of the first stage is to bring that possibly 3,000 psi air in the tank, down to a more reasonable pressure of about 150 psi. From there, the air goes to the second stages and can be reduced down further by these second stage, on demand (meaning it delivers air when you inhale and stops when you finnish inhaling), regs. The Octo is a second stage back up for a buddy that is out of air or if your own primary second stage ( the one you normally breathe from) is no longer functioning. Octos are generally ( not always) a cheaper reg, that may not have all the bells and whistles that a primary air source does. It's there for an emergency, so ease of breathing under load and tuning adjustments are minor. It gives you air when you're in a pinch, thats the important thing.
