This is limited to those 2nd stages/octopus that have not undergone an authorized annual service.
It has come to our attention that an incorrectly assembled 2nd stage has been purchased. If you have an Apeks regulator or octopus that has never had an authorized annual service, regardless of how recently purchased, please take the regulator/octopus to your Apeks dealer to be visually inspected.
All Apeks dealers and distributors have been made aware of this issue. Do not dive with the regulator until it has been visually inspected. Apeks apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. We are dedicated to making the world's best diving products and ensuring diver safety at all costs.
