High pressure scuba diving air hoses have been recalled by Innovative Scuba Concepts Inc., of Colorado Springs, Colo., Trident Diving Equipment, of Chatsworth, Calif. and A-Plus Marine, of Gulf Breeze, Fla. The diving hose can rupture reducing the available air supply to the diver, posing a drowning hazard. The importers have received nine reports of burst hoses. No injuries have been reported. The recalled air hoses are black braided high pressure scuba air hoses. The hoses measure about one centimeter in diameter and vary in length from 6-inches to 40-inches. These hoses attach to the regulator first stage and are intended for use with the submersible pressure gauge (SPG’s) that indicate the air pressure in the scuba diving tank. These recalled hoses were sold under the Phantom and Mesh Flex brand names printed only on the product packaging. The air hoses have production date codes stamped into the metal fitting that attaches to the regulator with the following codes: Innovative Scuba Concepts: 11Q3, 11Q4 and 12Q1. Trident Diving Equipment: T0811, T0911, T1011, T1111, T1211, T0112, and T0212. A-Plus Marine: 11Q3, 11Q4, and 12Q1.
The hoses were sold at scuba diving retailers nationwide and on-line from August 2011 through August 2012 for prices ranging between about $40 and $50.
