RECALL - Select Powerline Inflators

 
 
 
Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary product update of select Powerline inflators. Powerline inflators are found on all non i3 Aqua Lung Buoyancy Compensators and the Apeks Black Ice Buoyancy Compensator. If you have purchased an Aqua Lung BCD/Apeks Black Ice since January 1, 2015, it will need to be inspected to determine if it meets the specific criteria and requires updating. Aqua Lung is concerned that a failure may occur during a dive, causing the Powerline to continue inflating after the inflation button has been released, increasing the potential of an uncontrolled accent. While there have been reports of this occurring underwater, there have not been any reported injuries, Aqua Lung believes that a voluntary safety notice is the safe and prudent thing to do.
