    I would stay with one brand in your selections. This way you only have to go to one dealer to get the gear serviced. Look at the warranty options carefully. The differences can make a big difference in your bottom line after a few years. Traditionally Scubapro has cost a bit more, for their higher end regs, but offered free parts to the original purchaser if the reg is serviced annually, as it should be. The parts for a reg overhaul can run near $100 if you are paying for them out of pocket, so after a few years, the original cost is moot. Also, in my experience, you can likely find a Scubapro dealer just about anywhere you go. Not necessarily so for Mares.

SOURCE: with inhalation there seemed to be a brief stop in

Hi,

Is this reg new by any chance??
Or perchance it's due a good service?? Sounds like something is sticking inside..

Alternately, I had a similar problem with my mk25 just after I bought it. The dive center I was in were able to fix it overnight for me so I the weekend wouldn't be a washout and the said afterwards that the problem was one of the seals/valves inside that was a bit of a design flaw. They knew about it and had replacements on hand so it could be worth letting your local service center look at it and see what they think..

It's possible this is it too..

May not have exactly your model, but something very very similar. Also, keep in mind, the second stage will free-flow as an "overpressure safety" if the first stage is malfunctioning. Check your intermediate pressure (should be ~150). If you can't do this, try your second stage on another first stage (any brand), and try another second stage on your first.

If it is for sure your second stage, check for proper adjustment of demand lever, bent/damaged demand lever or diaphragm plate, or damaged valve seat.

The solenoid package is mounted at the front of the transmission. You have to remove the transmission cooler lines and a sensor. Three bolts remove the package. Before removing it, clean all around it. Air works the best. A lot of dirt gets behind it, between the package and transmission. You absolutely can not get any dirt in the holes after you move the package. This will cause a jam in the pistons inside the transmission. Then it has to be pulled and cleaned. The package can run up to $300 at parts stores, shop around. Seen them new on ebay for half. DON"T buy a used one. The package has one plug on it, with a bolt in the center of it.

I have been using my A700/mk25 for six month and recently it has been making a whislting noise when I inhale.


the whistle noise is some thing loose (torn o-ring) inside the second stage. this is covered under warranty. scuba pro offers a parts for life program which is no cost to you if 1st & 2nd stage with a computer are bought at one time. just pay service labor. the whistle noise will be repaired are replaced free under 1 year.

With inhalation there seemed to be a brief stop in the air stream and some resistance. This happens regardless of how my second stage is tuned. I have had two other divers to try it and they both felt it...

It is a HORRIBLE idea for you to dismantle your first stage. It should only be done by a trained technician because of how many small parts there are... now depending on your regulator you might have the ability to turn down the pressure... read the manual to find out if your reg has this adjustment capability.

Extreme loud sound on MK/25


did you check your bulletins from scuba pro ? depending on the actual year of mfg ( you can call scuba pro and give them serial number )
there was a retro fit kit made for the mk 25 first stage of you send me your email i will send the bulletin to you

other wise if you wew working from an earlier service guuide then you would notbe aware of the retro fit kits and pistons some of the earlier schematic will not show you that o ring that you were refering to

It's trim options. Basically different trims available, styling packages, wheels/tire sizes-things like that. There is no real performance differences between them.
