Atomic’s Warranty to “Free Parts Warranties”
Truth About “Free Parts Warranties” and why
Atomic is more diver-friendly
competitors offer limited lifetime warranties that include
lifetime “free parts” for the annual overhaul. This
is simply a
marketing technique intended to make a new diver believe
they will save money on annual service costs. However, the
biggest single factor in any regulator service is the “labor
cost” which is not covered under a free
parts warranty or any other regulator warranty. Contrary to
the claim, a free-parts warranty
may actually cost you double the repair costs compared to our
warranty. Sometimes the small print in others warranty language
stipulates that a major service must be performed every year
with written proof of the service within a 30-day window or
lifetime free parts warranty is revoked. Our “Two-Year/300-Dive
Warranty” is not contingent on proof of annual service.
Aquatics regulators are designed to save you time and money
by not requiring a yearly visit to a technician for service.
Atomic Aquatics, we believe other warranties have too many
exclusions and restrictions to be truly beneficial to a diver.

three-year regulator service cost period.
