The Aqua Lung Calypso Regulator yoke version includes a second filter, which can be change without dismantling and provides increased protection from polluted air. For dive centers, a numbered sticker can be used to identify the regulator, easing the renting and tracking process. Avoid water retention with the open yoke screw. The dust cap adjacent to the body protects the yoke inlet fittings against shocks. Regulator is made from chromed marine grade brass and has four 3/8″ UNF MP and one 7/16″ UNF HP outlets.
The downstream demand valve ABS housing second stage regulator comes with the unique Comfo-Bite mouthpiece, with patented roof of mouth bridge, reduces jaw fatigue. The removable and reusable clip facilitates quick and easy mouthpiece changes.
