DGX Adapter: LP Reg Hose = BC Integrated 2nd Stage

Adapter: LP Reg Hose = BC Integrated 2nd Stage
ScubaPro Style Aqualung (Seaquest) Style Adapter: LP Reg Hose = BC Integrated 2nd Stage
  • Converts regulator hose to quick disconnect hose for BC integrated alternate air sources
  • Select from two (2) different type fittings that are specific to your brand (see options listed below)
  • 9/16-inch male end screws into an ordinary LP regulator hose - other end is a female slide-lock fitting
  • Adapter will add about {2 in | 5 cm} to the length of the regulator hose

You can not use a standard BC inflator QD hose Schrader fitting to supply a BC integrated alternate air source, as the device would not receive enough gas due to the flow restriction of a standard Schrader fitting. These adapters allow any standard-length LP regulator hose to be converted into a quick disconnect hose for BC integrated alternate air sources. The 9/16-inch male end screws into the second stage end of an ordinary LP regulator hose, and the other end of the adapter is a female slide-lock fitting that accepts the hi-flow male post found on BC integrated second stages. The adapter itself will add about {2 in | 5 cm} to the length of the regulator hose. Important: There are two different styles of this adapter, each is for a different high flow fitting. Each of the two different quick disconnect female fittings works with one or the other of the male posts found on specific devices as follows:

  • ScubaPro Air II, Atomic SS1, Sherwood Gemini, Tusa Duo-Air IR3, Zeagle Octo-Z, and ODS (Private label sold by Blue Reef, DGX, Dive Rite, Hog and many others)
  • Aqualung (SeaQuest) AirSource 1&2&3, Aeris Air Link, Apeks Octo Plus, Aquatec Air3, Beauchat Venturi, MARES AirControl, Oceanic Air XS, US Divers Air Mic, and Zeagle Octo-Plus

Now for the bad news... manufacturers have been making BC integrated second stage devices for many years but there are no design standards for the high-flow fittings these devices require. One or the other of our two fittings should work based on the cross reference above, but in rare cases might leak because of compatibility issues that are more likely with very old devices.

While it does not work to adapt a BC inflator hose to a regulator, it is possible to adapt a LP regulator hose to a standard BC inflator but to avoid confusion we list that adapter separately.
