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 8 oz. (213 g) 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.

If you are interested in streamlining yourself in the water, making your gear easier to pack and eliminating confusion in an out of air situation then Leisure Pro has an Octo for you! The Blue Reef Octo + Inflator can do it all You will drop the standard Octo from your regulator setup and combine it with your BC power inflator eliminating a hose and reducing clutter The Octo + Inflator will attach to any standard 1" (2.54 cm) BC corrugated hose and if there is an out of air emergency you will know right where to look because your Octo is on the power inflator you have been using for the whole dive Give it a try, Simplify!

The Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with Inflator Hose is commonly used for Eliminating Hoses, Last Resort, Upgrading Equipment and more. The Blue Reef Octo + Inflator with Inflator Hose is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Casual/ Recreational among others.

How to adjust resistance

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.

terrible

Terrible, I sent the first one back because it free flows, then they send another and it does the same thing. I have to send it in again. I want my money back, but they refuse, telling me I just have to send it back again and then wait 5-7 weeks for repair or replacement. Device fails on first use

Pure Junk

This is junk. Started leaking after one dive. Not safe.

Cheap price for a cheap product

By

from Boiling springs, SC, US

This is a cheap product in price and quality. It will leak with most first stage regs. You can dial down the pressure so it stops leaking but that defeats the point of a high volume reg. I used this once and took it off and will not use it again. You get what you pay for on this one.

Does the job

By

from San Francisco, CA, US

Probably a 3 star product, but given the price, I gave it 4. A simple regulator that attaches to your existing inflator hose. Be sure to set and test the reg. As other reviews point out: use a 3/16 allen wrench (thru the hose connection). Depress the purge valve when tightening/loosening. I tightened it down to unbreathable, then backed it off so I could breath it. (It's for emergencies -- easy breathing is not what you want.)

Made well

By

from Fort pierce , FL, US

I have purchased three of these over the past 4 years as a replacement to a scubapro unit and a Seaquest unit and about to add one to a Seaquest diva. I have never had a failure with these units as I have with some of the brand name ones. I hope you have as good of luck with these as I have.

Not recommended

By

from Sugar Land, TX, US

Free flowed as soon as it was connected to a tank. Unfortunately, this occurred the first morning of my scuba vacation. So I had the expense and inconvenience of renting replacement gear. I am surprised that Leisure Pro compromises their reputation by selling this.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KAREN H  Good price and good to have this for less complication.
JEFFREY A  Excellent price and works very well. No free flow. The internal adjustment is easy to get to and easy to accomplish.
NEAL R G  I have had similar Octo + units branded by both Zeagle and Beuchat in the past and have had excellent service for many years. I also have great trust in Leisure Pro so between the 2 factors, I was quickly pursuaded that this is the gear for me.
CESAR G  Simple, inexpensive way to get rid of an extra hose.
DAVID S  never used it yet bought as a back up. Seams to be good decent quality item though.
COASTAL A  nice price and they work perfectly
TIM M  TO replace a traditional octo because my buddy was jealous of my integrated-octo on my scubapro BCD. Unfortunately this one free-flowed jst before our second dive wiht it so thank goodness I had brought the parts to replace and revert back to the old traditional octo. I returned it this week to Leisurepro and they havent notified me yet of the refund. I thought the price was too good to be true I will not replace it now that it failed. We could not stop the free flow no matter what we did.
STEVE C  ordered this for my son worked very well till we had it serviced now sticks open when you inflate not able to find anyone else to service this reg swapped it for a scubapro air 2 like the rest of the family has
RICHARD R  Best price for this type device I could find
SAMUEL R  Conventional octo regulator get in the way. The less hoses the better.
Shopper  will this work with a hollis hd 200 bcd?
David R  It ought to work with any BCD as all that I have ever seen have the same size hose going into the BCD bladder. The only thing that you might need to change would be the hose coming from the low pressure side of the 1st stage regulator as most BCD's that just have a power inflator use a smaller quick disconnect than those that include the 2nd stage in the inflator.
L W  How does one rinse this octo while it is attached to the BCD? Do I have to keep the the whole LP hose/1st stage attached with the BCD? Or can I expose the innards of this octo to fresh water? I am asking because on liveaboards or even diveboats, the crew frequently will disassemble one's gear and rinse them for you without you knowing.
ALLEN V  Ive had this second stage for three years and have rinsed it in fresh water all this time and have had no problem
JOHN G  Best not to get water into the valve. There is a cap that will cover where the hose goes.
L W  A red cap came with it, but it goes onto the end of the hose that screws into the 1st stage, thus it will never see action. The Tusa octo inflator has a cap that prevents the octo's internals from getting wet when rinsed on its own: http://www.leisurepro.com/Image/Product/XLarge/TBTIR3_2.jpg
ERIC W  I rinse the entire thing with fresh water connected juice a regular manual inflator no problems in three years
MARCIO F  you dont need to keep the hose attached, i always disassemble it myself and rinse all the parts, i dont like other people doing it for me unless its really necessary, this way if you have a "malfunction" you know exactly who to blame for.
CEYLON L  I have 200 dives on mine. I onscrew the inflator hose ( large one) from the b.c. wash it all good . Hang to dry out good. Shake all water out. Hang. B. C. To dry to. Assemle before use. My wife has one to. 100 dives.. Same deal. Time for a rebuild kit on mine. Just for the hell of it. Never a problem . ever. Ceylon Loehr. PADI Dive Master. D M 645234
DAVID S  I have bought 3ov this unit. It has held up to abuse far better then scubapro air2. I replaced one on a ladyhawk and it's going on 3rd season. I disassembled it last years no rust like the scuba pro one. All salt water dives and when I get home we toss in pool after rinsing I do hook back up to tank and blow out everytime. I even just bought another for back up as part of lp's sale. Can't beat it.
mike b  Rinse the octopus along with the BC Both the BC and octopus should be completely submerged in fresh water once a week
L W  Rinse with or without the inflator hose connected?
mike b  Leave inflator hose attached to BC
KEN B  Simply rinse with fresh water. No special care is needed
TERRY G  You can rinse it pretty much like any second stage reg. As long as the inflator hose is disconnected, you shouldn't have any issues with water. The key is not getting water backed up to the first stage.
L W  Regular 2nd stage are rinsed with the LP hose CONNECTED and the purge button not depressed, so the dry internals of the 2nd stage stays dry. If I disconnect the inflator hose, wouldn't the dry internal parts of this 2nd stage get wet? Unless you think that is not an issue.
