SPARE AIR IS QUICK AND EASY TO REFILL!
Spare Air is a refillable fully self-contained breathing device. Store the Spare Air at full pressure and refill it only if you use it or need to travel on a commercial airline. The always-on regulator is ready to deliver life-saving air in an underwater emergency or toxic air environment. The optional Dial Gauge displays an accurate pressure reading in increments of 200 psi. The pressure indicator white pin will extend completely out when the unit is filled. The pin will recess into the pressure indicator when the unit requires refilling.
Refilling is about as difficult as refilling a bike tire. There are 4 typical methods for refilling Spare Air.
Refilling from SCUBA Tank
Spare Air can be filled using the SCUBA tank refill adapter attached to a filled 3000 psi SCUBA tank.
Refilling at a Local Dive Shop
The Spare Air can be filled at most local SCUBA Diving Shops using the optional air compressor refill adapter.
Refilling from a personal Breathing Air Compressor
If you have several Spare Airs to refill on a regular basis, a Nuvair Breathing Air Compressor may be your best option. Available in both Gas and Electric models.
Refilling from a Hand Pump
Note: if the unit is completely emptied of air in any underwater conditions, refer to the manual regarding proper servicing before refilling your Spare Air.
*Refilling a Spare Air to capacity using a hand pump is extremely strenuous and time consuming.
