Most drysuit inflation valves used in recreational diving can accept a standard BC quick disconnect inflator hose, but need a longer length. For drysuit divers, where the hose routes under their arm to a chest mounted power-inflator, the typical length is {30 in | 76 cm} and sometimes a bit shorter or longer depending on the location of the power-inflator relative to the first stage. However, most drysuit divers prefer a quick disconnect fitting with a wide flange that makes it easier to get a positive lock with the inflation fitting.

The EZ-On Quick Disconnect Adapter assembled with our standard low-pressure braided flex hose works particularly well to produce an extremely flexible drysuit inflator hose solution. Just push on to attach to the inflation fitting, no need to pull back the collar. However, it still has a positive six-point locking mechanism that requires the collar to be pulled back to disconnect. The large collar makes it easy to remove even with heavy gloves and is a much better solution than the 'hose hat' add-ons for standard BC inflator hoses. The collar also has a 'flat' area that makes it work very well in tight areas such as next to drysuit inflator valves. This adapter offers a flow rate of approximately 260-280 LPM.

Dive Gear Express braided flex hoses are constructed with an inner lining of High Syntactic Polyvinyl Chloride. HS-PVC is a member of the TPE family of plastics. The inner lining is reinforced with an inner sheath of braided fiber and an outer jacket of braided filament. External double-braiding better resists the snags and abrasions encountered in diving. Double braided hoses are much more flexible, a third lighter, UV & kink resistant and stronger than rubber. Hose has a UNF 3/8-inch male fitting for standard 1st stage low-pressure port.

Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING

Keep in mind that all SCUBA hoses will fail sooner or later either due to age, storage conditions or handling. Scuba hoses, regardless of brand and materials, require some minimal care. Do not allow hoses to receive prolonged exposure sunlight, as the heat and UV from strong sunlight will significantly shorten the life of the hose. Do not attempt to flush the inside of the hose with any form of solvent or other chemical, new hoses are factory clean and if you have any reason to think they are no longer clean then the hose should be replaced. Prior to every dive trip you should always pressurize and inspect your hoses for mechanical damage, corroded fittings, bulges and leaks. Dive Gear Express suggests replacing all SCUBA hoses every five years or 500 dives, whichever comes first.
