Am going to go on a photo trip soon, and am just a wee bit worried.
I have dived with the above reg. for many years now and it has never let me down. I have had it serviced numerous times.
I just got it serviced and now notice a rattling sound coming from both my main R380 second stage and r380 octopus, particularly when I hold them vertically and shake them from side to side.
This sound occurs when the regs are pressurised. It sounds like there is something loose.
I can't remember my R380's ever doing this before, or maybe they did all along, and just I didnt notice it.
I havent dived with the reg. yet. The regs purge and I can breath from them on land.
So, just to ask...
does anyone own a scubapro R380 reg like and if so, does it make a rattle sound if you shake it vertically when pressurised?
I have found on another forum of someone noticing a similar instance, but only when the reg. is pressurised, and some posters were saying the 'lever bar(?) is set low'- saying its nothing to worry about, other's saying bring it back.
Just wondering if anyone else experienced this with Scubapro R380 regs?
