About Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with Inflator Hose

The Blue Reef Octo+ Breathable Inflator replaces the conventional BC power inflator and second stage octopus by combining the functions of both into a single unit. When you're taught how to dive you are given practice in buoyancy control more than any other skill. Once you start to dive every time you go underwater, fin the reef, or surface you use buoyancy control. All this time your octopus second stage regulator hangs un-used and out of mind.

When a real life out-of-air situation occurs, the stress and anxiety mounts, and you find yourself fumbling for a piece of equipment you never use the Octopus! Combining your inflator devise (that you use on every dive) with your Octopus Regulator assures your ability to react properly when an out-of-air emergency occurs. Be a safe diver with the Octo + Breathable Inflator.

The Blue Reef Octo + is a dependable downstream demand valve design Breathable Inflator. The Octo + has an easy to use inflator valve design and is manufactured from brass, flexible and ridged thermoplastics, elastomeric polymers and silicone rubber. The Breathable Inflator weighs approximately 8oz (213g) without the hose, providing a lightweight and compact alternative to having both a standard inflator mechanism and a separate octopus regulator.

The high-flow inflator hose is 27" (69 cm) in length with 3/8" threads. The combining of the Alternate Air Source and Inflator Mechanism also eliminates a hose and streamlines your profile when diving. The Octo + Breathable Inflator, comes with a comprehensive owner's manual and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

The Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with Inflator Hose is commonly used for Eliminating Hoses, Last Resort and more.

Got this at end of Sep. Got 10 dives on it in Oct, so far no problem. It does what it's supposed to do: inflate/deflate your BCD and let you breathe off it when you need it. Ease of breathing: 7/10. Uncomfortable: No. Having to tilt your head: unnoticeable. BUT would you care about those when your primary goes out or when your buddy's out of air? You would be grateful for anything you get.Free-flow: YES for mine. However, it's not a defect but rather an adjustment that can be easily set by loosening the screw inside little by little until it stops (the screw is used to control the amount of air flowing through just like the knob on your 2nd stage)If your BCD corrugated tube is smaller than this BlueReef inflator and you have to force it on. You should use self-adhesive tape (can be found here or local [@] to wrap the joint and reenforce by a tie-wrap. That way it won't break your corrugated tube.

don't bother with this

I bought this as a backup octo - it works okay but not great - you have to tilt your head at an uncomfortable angle to use it, and it breathes very wet. Good...Read complete review

I bought this as a backup octo - it works okay but not great - you have to tilt your head at an uncomfortable angle to use it, and it breathes very wet. Good for an emergency situation only.

    How to adjust resistance

    Comments about Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with inflator hose:

    As with other reviewers, the unit was leaking air. I communicated with LP tech support, and they told me how to adjust the resistance. Use a 3/16 inch allen key and insert it through the male quick disconnect. Use the long arm of the allen key, since the adjustment screw is recessed way inside. I then turned the allen key for zero air flow and then adjusted the flow upwards until I reached a point where it was fairly easy to breath, but more importantly did not exhibit air leak any more. There was no need to disassemble the unit. I think there is no defect in the product; it just may need an adjustment. I hope this helps those who have complained about it leaking air. Good product, good price. LP tech support very good, thanks

    Comments about Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with inflator hose:

    Good idea. Havent had the opportunity to use yet because the connection to the manual inflator hose is too large, so I have to find a larger diameter hose that will still fit the connection at the bladder.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        SAMUEL R  Conventional octo regulator get in the way. The less hoses the better.
        Shopper  can this be used with an air compressor with 90 psi ?
        Ben T  Operating pressure 120-140
        Joseph G  Will this work with my Aeris Biojac BCD?
        Frank L  No, it will not. Aeris uses a non-standard corrugated hose, so you can only use either the Aeris or the Oceanic Integrated Inflators: http://www.leisurepro.com/c-960/octopuses?Filter=brand%3dOceanic%2cAeris%3aflid_960_2%3d186. You would only need the lower unit.
