Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Diving Accessories are subject to this recall:

  • Powerline Diving Inflator and Buoyancy Compensator Devices (“BCDs”), purchased after the 1st July 2015 and marked with a date code of “H” or “I”, a mark that appears on the lower part of the Inflator assembly.

According to the ACCC, due to the Bezel being over tightened, certain Powerline Inflators have continued to inflate after the button is released during a dive. If the defect occurs during a dive, it may cause the diver to ascend too quickly, an action that may cause serious injury on accent.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Powerline Diving BCD/Dive Accessory, please do not use it. Instead, kindly return it to the nearest authorised Aqua Lung retailer or dive centre. They will be able to correct the defect for you. This is a quick process and is made under warranty so you will not incur any charges.

You can contact Aqua Lung on +61 3 9369 1992 or email us salesaqz@aqualung.com, go to http://www.aqualungpartnercenters.com for your nearest dealer
