AQUA LUNG AIRSOURCE 3 OCTOPUS
- Aqua Lung
- Ships 24 / 48 Hours
Streamlined for peace of mind, the redesigned and refined Airsource regulator combines a high-performance second stage with a breathable power inflator. Unlike a traditional octopus, take comfort knowing that the Airsource is right in front of you ready to deliver air in a moment's notice.
- Conveniently Positioned
Deliver life-saving air at a moment’s notice: the Airsource sits right in front of you throughout your dive.
- Pneumatically Balanced
The second stage is pneumatically balanced for consistent breathing throughout your dive. Ideal for use with over-balanced first stages.
- Lightweight Flexi-Hose
New, lighter-weight flexi-hose is softer, making it easier to pull open the rapid exhaust valve. Includes clips and recessed areas to accommodate your MP hose.
- Trim Grip
The Trim Grip control in the middle of the flexi-hose lets you dump air from your BCD during ascent without removing the mouthpiece.
- Soft-touch Purge Cover
Located on the bottom, the soft-touch purge cover prevents accidental activation in strong currents.
The Airsource quickly separates from its bayonet mount on the BCD at the Trim Grip so that you can pack it with the complete regulator.
Care & Maintenance
How to properly care for your Aqua Lung regulator:
- It is important to provide the proper preventative maintenance in order to ensure the best possible performance and maximum life of your Aqua Lung Regulator. The following maintenance procedures should be performed routinely after each use to ensure that the regulator is cleaned, inspected, and prepared for the next use or for storage.
- As soon as possible after diving, the regulator should be rinsed thoroughly with fresh water while it is attached to a cylinder and pressurized with air.
- Rinsing alone, however, will not sufficiently clean the regulator. To clean the regulator as thoroughly as possible Aqua Lung recommends:
- Attach the regulator to a charged SCUBA cylinder, open the cylinder valve to pressurize the regulator, and thoroughly soak both the first and second-stages in a bath of fresh water.While the regulator is soaking, move the vane adjustment switch on the second stage (if present) back and forth several times from the “MIN” (or “—”) to the “MAX” (or “+”) settings. You may also turn the valve adjustment knob (adjustable models) slightly back and forth—no more than 1/4 turn.
- After the regulator has been properly soaked, it is important to rinse it vigorously by flushing the mainspring cavity of the first stage regulator (non- environmentally sealed models only), the second-stage mouthpiece, and the openings in the second-stage front cover with a pressurized stream of water. This will remove the deposits of salt and minerals that were loosened during soaking.
<<DANGER>> If you use a garden hose, do not use the high pressure jet as this could damage the diaphragm and the internal valve.
<<WARNING>> DO NOT depress the purge button, loosen the first stage yoke screw, or turn the second stage adjustment knob all the way “out” (adjustable models) if the regulator is submerged unpressurized. Doing so will allow the entrance of moisture, and will require that the regulator be returned to an Authorized Aqua Lung Dealer for service.
- Disconnect the regulator and wipe it as dry as possible and then hang it by the first stage to ensure that all remaining moisture drains from the second stages.
- Do not leave the regulator exposed to direct sunlight for long periods.
- When the regulator is completely dry, store in a clean equipment box, or sealed inside a plastic bag. Do not store it where it may be exposed to extreme heat or an electric motor, which produces ozone. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat, ozone, chlorine, and ultraviolet rays can cause premature degradation of rubber parts and components.
- Never store the regulator while it is still connected to the cylinder valve.
<<DANGER>> Do not use any type of solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part of the regulator. Do not expose any part of the regulator to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
Free Parts for Life Program (Regulator Service Agreement)
The Free Parts for Life Program allows the customer to receive free parts when the regulator is due for overhaul. Free parts consist of the normal replacement items as found in the Regulator 1st & 2nd Stage Service Kits. Labor charges are not covered. Assuming the program guidelines are followed, the Free Parts for Life Program will apply to the life of the regulator and will significantly reduce the cost of ownership. This program is in addition to the standard product warranties outlined in the owner’s manual.
The Free Parts for Life Program is a commitment by you (the Regulator owner), your Aqua Lung Dealer and Aqua Lung. To participate, you must be the original owner and have purchased the regulator from an Authorized Aqua Lung or Apeks America Dealer. Rainbow Reef Dive Center is an authorized Aqualung Dealer. We can service and repair Aqua Lung and Apeks equipment. The regulator must be brought to an Authorized Dealer at least once a year for inspection or overhaul according to the below schedule:
Register Your Aqualung Regulator Here
- Year #1: Inspection

To keep the Free Parts for Life Program active, both inspections and overhauls need to be documented in the Annual Service & Inspection Records included in the Owner’s Manual CD or can be found online here. If an inspection or overhaul is missed, the regulator no longer qualifies for the Free Parts for Life program.
