Mix Regulators Apeks & Scubapro

  • Can I mix a scubapro MK25 with an Apex 2nd stage or the other way round? I have a scubapro MK25 first stage but prefer the Apex 2nd stages. Any advice or opinions would be great... Thanks in advanced!

  • Should not be a problem. the first stage is usually the limiting factor, not the 2nd stage. I've mixed my MK25 with oceanic 2nd stages with no issues.

  • Should not be a problem but you need someone who can calibrate both to work well together.

  • Comes down to fine-tuning the IP pressure for both to work. Check the Service manual for the 1st stage first and then tuen the 2nd stage accordingly. From what I know, should be a problem unless your using Poseidon.

  • yeap best to put in extra effort to make sure it all goes together well on surface before taking the plunge and finding out in a panic  ;D

    how would u service the parts though??
    age of components and 'wearing out' rates are different i guessing...
