DIvair

Thu Mar 08, 2018 4:04 pm

I’m rebuilding a really good condition Divair and have an opportunity to add a bit of color to it through different color hoses via Jeff in CA.

I’m leaning towards the HW blue. Has anyone else done anything unique or cool with their DIvair or other reg? Lookin for ideas

Who is this “Jeff in California” you speak of? I would love a set of the blue Healthways hoses!

I bought a pair of La Spiroteuque hoses from the http://www.thescubamuseum.com/ and paired them up with a Hope Page mouthpiece. That set up makes my aluminum bodied DivAir a super nice breather. I have had it down past 120 feet in Fortune Pond on several occasions. Jerry Moseman was right. The DivAir is one special reg!

Sorry, meant Jeff from Canada. He makes hoses. Can do custom colors with a one week lead time, and he has/sell reproduction Divair diaphragms.

Are the hoses decent quality? Can anyone put me in contact with him?

Hi,

Jeff is a great guy. He makes quality stuff. It's a bit pricey, and international shipping is also. Jeff will mail from US POs if he's in the States for business.

I have several DivAir diaphragms and a set of Healthways blue hoses he made for me. I use the hoses on a Scuba, not my DivAirs, since the spiral shape matches the Healthways hoses, but are not very close to the DivAir hoses

I am down to 2 DivAirs from 3: one is alloy and the other black plastic. My plastic one has the original gray hoses, and the alloy one has black EPDM hoses that are a very close match in shape, but not color.

BTW, he made that repro French mouthpiece, too!

Here's my DivAir and the original mouthpiece and hoses. The new EPDM hoses are very similar. I wish I could get some dark gray ones:
