Atomic Swivel Hose Quality Alert

Atomic Swivel Hose Quality Alert

Atomic Aquatics has released a quality alert affecting their low pressure swivel regulator hoses. Owners are advised to check the date stamp on the hose as shown below to identify if yours is included within the alert. Affected hoses should not be used until replaced.

Atomic has learned of three reported incidences of low-pressure hoses that have become disconnected at the second stage swivel while in use. Specific batches of the hoses were produced in July of 2017 and have been used in their range of regulators produced between August 2017 through April 2018. Failure of the hose connection can obviously result in a loss of air supply and poses a significant drowning hazard to divers.

It is of the imperative that if you have a low-pressure swivel hose model listed below with the date stamp D0717, or a second stage regulator purchased after August 1, 2017 with a low-pressure swivel hose bearing the date stamp D0717, that the hose / regulator be quarantined and the hose replaced as soon as possible.

See image below for example of date stamp:
