I just got notification from one of my LDS that XS SCUBA has recalled their high pressure braided miflex hoses. If you have these hoses, you should IMMEDIATELY stop using it! Hoses may rupture reducing the available air supply to the diver, posing a drowning risk. This recall involves hoses sold after May 2009 within USA, Canada and the US Territories.
Primarily these hoses were sold as replacement gauge hoses. They were also sold as Cascade Hoses, deluxe cylinder equalizer 9P/N AC366) Miflex two gauge console (HL300/HL300M) and Miflex rebreather kits.
These hoses can be identified by:
1. A black nylon outer covering on the hose
2. a hose diameter of approx 1/4″
3. manufacturing stamp on the female fitting of MFX
IF YOU HAVE ONE OF THESE HOSES, IMMEDIATELY STOP USING IT.
