These regulator packages are for specific diving applications and configured by either the manufacturer or customized by Dive Gear Express. The DGX Custom versions are fully assembled and integrated by Dive Gear Express using brand name first and second stage regulators together with our premium quality hoses, gauges, adapters, stainless steel hardware and other accessories.
The regulator manufacturers do not endorse the installation or substitution of any non-factory part or component with their products because they do not have the ability to control or evaluate the quality and compatibility of such items. The installation of non-factory parts such as regulator hoses or other components may or may not have negative effects upon performance, function and safety. The regulator manufacturers disclaim liability for defect, damage or injury caused by the use of any non-factory parts or accessories.
DGX Custom Regulators - Have It Your Way
Unlike hamburgers where you can order exactly what you want, the diving equipment manufacturers generally supply their regulators in one or two basic configurations intended as the foundation for integration in the ubiquitous sport diving 'octopus'. Unfortunately experienced divers rarely need the manufacturers basic building block configuration of a Yoke first stage, 32-inch heavy rubber hose, and a second stage that often includes annoying cosmetic hose covers or a 360° swivel that interfere with hose routing and compromise safety.
Decades ago there was some debate regarding the safety of donating the primary second stage when introduced as an improvement to the classic octopus regulator configuration. However those questions are long settled and today Dive Gear Express configures all our regulator packages based on a longer hose that enables donation of the primary. The configurations are accepted for entry level open water training by all dive training agency standards, and universally recognized as the safest equipment configurations suitable for technical diving.
For those divers who want to build their own unique configurations, Dive Gear Express offers all our regulators as individual stages as well as DGX Custom first and second stage configurations that you can tailor to your specifications. Dive Gear Express also understands the needs of the experienced diver allowing us to offer a wide variety of ready-to-dive packages. All DGX Custom regulator packages are assembled and integrated by Dive Gear Express using brand name first and second stage regulators together with Dive Gear Express premium quality hoses and other regulator accessories.
