BCDs can be tricky to repair. Usually we won’t repair the bladder and there are many different parts for bcds that are difficult to source. We do our best to keep major BCD brand parts in stock being one of the few Kona dive shops to carry many major parts.
A regulator is one of your most important pieces of equipment. Without it scuba diving is not possible. Sometimes the pressure in a regulator’s first stage will drift out of specification. This means it will provide too much pressure causing the second stage to free-flow or not enough pressure causing the second stage to breathe with difficulty. By bringing your reg set in for a bench test we can examine the root of the problem at no cost to you. Kona Honu Divers maintains our rental fleet of regulators proactively to ensure their proper functioning before problems arise. We carry the Atomic brand of regulators because they offer the best performance and the highest reliability with the lowest maintenance requirement of any regulator currently on the market. This means you can spend more time and money on diving and less time in the dive shop.

There are 2 markings on every scuba tank that will show you when it was last checked.
- A VIP sticker is a sticker on the shoulder top of the tank that tells the person filling when the tank was last visually inspected. It needs to have been checked within the last year.
- A hydro stamp is a stamp that marks the outside of the tank with the date it was last hydrostatically tested. If it was tested within the last 5 years its good to go. If not it must have it’s valve removed and be sent in for a hydrostatic test. At this time a new VIP sticker will be installed.
