As an ex scuba diver and instructor, I strongly recommend that you bring it back where you bought it and have it checked out professionally. Your regulator is your life. At 20 feet, or even 33 feet, you probably wouldn't have a problem if it malfunctioned but on a deeper dive any problem can be fatal.
I'm not familiar with the particular unit you have but what I said applies to any regulator.If you've completed a dive course like the ones given by NAUI, you would know this. Far more important to make a mistake and be safe than ignore a real potential problem.

P0441 code evap

This code means that you have a problem with purge flow. This is a relatively difficult problem to diagnose and you should know that this type of problem can be challenging even for professionals with proper diagnostic tools.

You know how a container of liquid can inflate itself if left in the sun? (like one of those plastic gas cans)
Well the gas tank on your car would do the same thing if it wasn't vented. But the good ol' EPA doesn't want you venting gasoline fumes into the atmosphere so the vented fumes are filtered through a charcoal canister first. The gasoline molecules are trapped in the charcoal canister. While you are driving the vehicle at cruising speed, the purge valve is opened (by the car's computer) and allows your engine to suck in the fumes from the charcoal canister and burn them. That last bit is Purge Flow.

Check your vacuum hoses and the hoses coming from the charcoal canister to the purge valve and from the purge valve to the intake. If it all looks solid, I'd suspect your purge valve is either stuck or broken mechanically. If it is stuck you might free it up by taking it off and cleaning it. There is a way to test it but involves electrical knowledge and skill and you may have to put your mouth on it. (I'm talking about blowing air into it wile jumping power and ground to it in a very small connector).

Check that your intake is not clogged with carbon buildup where the purge valve connects. Some intakes have very small passages for purge flow that become clogged easily.

In rare cases the charcoal canister gets clogged.

My advice to novices is if you don't see anything obviously clogged or leaking, then just replace the purge valve. If that doesn't do it, take it to a good mechanic with ASE Certified Technicians.

It leaks throu the pump

i've never heard of an inflatable bed that you leave the pump hooked up to. I would suggest pumping it up removing the pump and put the plastic plug back into where the pump was attached

My octopus leaks from the head (not the hose). Could it be an internal problem?

A rebuild or simple adjustment can make it stop leaking if it is coming out of mouth piece if it is leaking from anywhere but mouthpiece or hose connection it needs service.

The piece on the top of the filter keeps coming out, leaking water and i cannot feel water coming out or into the filter?? What is wrong.

On top of the pump unit, is a large wheel-type screw. With the pump on, all the air must be purged from that pump in order for it to work properly. Every time you plug in the pump, you must press the red button on the plug. It's a saftey feature, otherwise you won't have any power.

I need a BCD Inflator Hose Attachment Valve Repair Kit. I found on on a singapore website called, but they want like $100. The kit is very simple and looks like it could work, but that...

Yes, i agree with u, their price is a killer with shipping charges. I purchased one n repaired my broken valve, which I was quite happy with the result. I kept my broken bcd for awhile believing I can find some way to fix it. I have seen a few diveshops who does patchwork but decided against it until I was in phuket recently when I saw this scuba fix repair kit used on one of the dm bcd. He said best repair ever! I look at it, It looked like the repaired valve will outlast his bcd!
I bought 2 sets for 5000 baht works out around $160.

How well does the Fish Hunter 280 do in the Ocean?

I don't think it would do well at all, Ive taken my Fishhunter 360 in larger lakes with waves and came close to tipping quite a few times with all the gear, motor,etc. Try an inflatable with a v-hull if the oceans your thing!
