Wet & Dry Suit repairs
Aqua Elevation can service all makes of wet and dry suits. With the knowledge to resize, repair or replace zips, cuffs, neck seals and even the soles of boots, divers are assured no more leaks. Inflator and dump valves, that allow air to enter and exit dry suits while submerged, can also be serviced on-site.
Wet suits insulate the body by keeping a thin layer of water next to the skin. Dry suits keep users completely dry. Wet suits are warm and tend to be made of neoprene. Both trilaminate, which needs an undersuit, and neoprene dry suits keep the diver warm using air heated by the body. All suits last a reasonable length of time before repairs are needed. However, salt water is corrosive and frequent wearing can cause vulnerable areas like cuff and neck seals to leak.
Able to offer advice on voltage and usage times, Aqua Elevation make up and supply replacement battery and charging packs for underwater equipment, like torches. This includes an extensive range dedicated to dive computers. With a huge supply of batteries and bulbs, the service includes changing and fitting to help to reduce future equipment failure or leaks.
