Scuba Diving Hose Recall

The product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation warn of a recent product recall instituted by Innovative Scuba Concepts Inc., Trident Diving Equipment and A-Plus Marine, in conjunction and cooperation with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC").

These recalled products are high pressure scuba diving air hoses, of which approximately 2,590 total units are currently in distribution, as follows:

  • 1900 Innovative Scuba Concepts hoses
  • 480 Trident Diving Equipment hoses
  • 210 A-Plus Marine hoses

Each of these various units are manufactured by a Taiwanese entity called Li Chung Plastics Ind. Co. Ltd. The product defect associated with these hoses involves their potential to rupture, thereby reducing the available oxygen supply to the diver, posing a hypoxic and/or drowning risk and hazard. These importers, above-referenced, are already in receipt of nine (9) such reports of hoses bursting.

These hoses which are presently being voluntarily recalled are described as black-braided (high pressure) air hoses for scuba purposes. These various hoses measure approximately 1 cm. in diameter and differ in significantly in length from approximately six inch hoses to a whopping forty inches. These various hoses attach to regulators and are intended specifically to be utilized in conjunction with with submersible pressure gauges, or SPGs, that delineate air pressure in the dive tank. The various hoses on recall were sold as per the Mesh Flex and Phantom brand-names, which are conspicuously printed on the products' packaging. These hoses have a date code located on or near the metal coupling which attaches to the regulator. The following codes are affected:

  • 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

These units were sold by scuba dive retailers on a national level, and additionally sold on line from late summer of 2011 through 2012 at price points ranging from $40 to $50.
