Wanted: Good Used Primary Stage Regulator

Post by SalishSeahawk2500 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 11:38 am

Looking for a good quality used primary stage regulator to pair with my octo alternate air source regulator to put on a pony tank. Price range: Approx. $100.

I have an aqualung, DIN first stage that I used to use with a pony. Not needed anymore. How does $50 sound? I'd give you the first stage and my old 19cu ft pony for 75. Or 100 for those with the quick draw mount. Pictures aren't uploading properly. I'll pm or email you.

Thanks, Jacob. Got the pictures. Got my answer to the question of the size of the pony. Thanks. How does the DIN attach to the pony? Does the pony have a DIN valve or a yoke valve?

The first stage is DIN, and the pony I mentioned has a DIN valve as well. Let me check when the last VIP was. I am sure it will need to be VIPed again, but I would recommend that for any tanks purchased used. Make me an offer on the stuff. It has been just sitting here gathering dust, and if someone can use it please do.

Thanks, Jacob, for the info. Yes, please check when the last VIP check was done. My offer (for the whole package) will depend on two things:

(1) When the tank passed its last VIP check.

(2) Whether the package works with my 2nd stage reg. I'll need to actually test it with my reg attached to confirm. Obviously the tank will need to be at least partially filled to do this.

Unless you have a Poseiden 2nd stage (rare around here) the Aqualung 1st will work with your octo. They all use an IP around 135psi
