Rating: Breaths well hose too short
Reviewer: Michael H.
This reg breaths very well and is a great way to get rid of a hose. Unlike some other inline seconds, this will hook into just about any BCD out there so if on vacation, and you want to rent but hate rental regs, you can pack your own with one less hose in the way. The only complaint I have is that of the hose being too short. One must turn their head to the side to use this Octo and it restricts your head from facing forward. That said, for an emergency back up to get you to the surface, it is just fine. Only 4 stars because of the short hose. Would recommend this reg without a doubt.

Rating: XS Scuba Airwave Plus Inline Octo
Reviewer: Ross A.
The XS combination Octo/Inflator did exactly what I wanted to achieve. Quick-connect attachment to any BC when traveling. Worked great. Breaths very well. Like the design. BUT, hose is shorter than I would like. Needs another four inches or so to be just a bit better fit for an XL BC. I would STILL buy it again but Id really like the hose to be longer. May switch later. The four is only because of the shorter hose, otherwise a five. This is the only version that I know of that has an adjustment for airflow.

Rating: XS in-line octopus
Reviewer: Ron D P.  -  View all my reviews
This was the best upgrade to my scuba gear. This is truly a less is more benefit. It breathes easy if needed to be used. Plus, it came completely ready to attach to my first stage in seconds.

Rating: Good value
Reviewer: James W.  -  View all my reviews
Bought 2 of these (for wife & myself)- pretty nice way to streamline your gear. These were least expensive ones I could find. Only issue is that, should you have to use it after giving your reg to your buddy, the hose is pretty short.

Rating: A little cumbersome
Reviewer: Brian McHugh
Easy to connect and worked well with my Seaquest BC. I put on my new Zeagle BC and it is a little cumbersome with the inflater hose. Tends to pull on the hose and would not be very comfortable to use if required.

Rating: good buy
Reviewer: Dan G.  -  View all my reviews
great item to add your list. it reduces a lot of clutter because your octo stays right with your inflater hose instead of dragging on the bottom and it is one less hose to worry about. you figure with the amount of equipment you have to dive with anything you can eliminate is a plus.

Rating: Airwave Plus
Reviewer: Stephen L.  -  View all my reviews
Nice configuration and easy breathing. Only drawback is the first stage line needs to be longer for the bigger BCDs or the Octo/Inflator gets dislodged from the chest strap.

Rating: XS airwave inline
Reviewer: Jonanthan Whinston  -  View all my reviews
The first one I received was defective, and it leaked air at the housing joint during my week long trip. If you can, test these before going to an exotic location. Scuba.com would not authorize me to have it repaired in Mexico under warranty and pay for the repair, but when I sent it back after the trip, Scuba.com was very good about just replacing it. I have received the new replacement, but have not been able to test it yet.

Rating: An excellent product
Reviewer: Justin Poulos  -  View all my reviews
This is an excellent product. It is very compact and prevents you from worrying about having an octopus dragging around on the bottom. Also, a major plus is that it eliminates the need for a fourth house since it goes inline with the BC supply line. And it has an adjustable flow control that prevents free flow no matter what position you are in. It is also very easy to breath with even at depth.

Questions and Answers for XS Scuba Airwave Plus Inline Octo:

  • Jim:

    Can you get a longer hose for this product it seems this is the only drawback.

    Clarke  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jim. Thank you for your inquiry! The XS Scuba Airwave Plus Inline Scuba Octo comes with a set length Power Inflator Hose. If you would like to place an order, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: info@scuba.com

  • Tom:

    I keep reading how the hose is too short. Is it just a standard LP inflator hose that connects to the air/octo housing, same connection as the one that usually connects to your BCD?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    I''ve seen this written from time to time as well and often wonder if people are mounting their cylinder so low that the valve is between their should blades. The hose is slightly shorter as it takes into account the length of the fittings and short adapter hose, but it compares in length, overall, to a typical low pressure inflator hose.

  • Bansi:

    Do you have the xs scuba airwaves plus octo in stock? Is this compatible with Mares prestiege mrs plus bcd? I am interested in buying this if readily available in stock.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

  • Nick:

    is this compatible with the cressi travelight bcd and are there any other inflator octos that you sell as well.

Care and Maintenance

It is important to provide the proper preventative maintenance in order to ensure the maximum performance and life of your regulator. The following procedures should be performed routinely after each use to ensure that the regulator is cleaned, inspected and prepared for the next use or for storage.
1. When the regulator is removed from the SCUBA cylinder valve, it is important that the dust cap or protector cap is installed over the first stage regulator inlet fitting or threaded DIN connector. This is critical to prevent the entrance of moisture into the first-stage. This cap or protector is normally attached to the first stage regulator and may therefore be wet. Wipe or blow the cap or protector completely dry before securing it over the inlet fitting or threaded DIN connector.
2. As soon as possible after diving, the regulator should be rinsed thoroughly with clean fresh water while attached to a cylinder and pressurized with air.
3. Rinsing alone will not sufficiently clean the regulator properly. To clean the regulator as thoroughly as possible, it should be soaked in warm (not over 120º F) tap water.
a. The preferred method is to attach the regulator to a charged SCUBA cylinder, open the cylinder valve to pressurize the regulator, and thoroughly soak both the first and second stages. Pressurizing the regulator will effectively prevent moisture or contamination from entering the regulator while it is soaking. While the regulator is soaking, depress the second stage purge button several times to agitate the water inside the second stage. This will help loosen any mineral deposits that may have adhered to internal components. You should also turn the adjustment knob (SeaAir only) several times to loosen any mineral deposits that may have settled around the shaft. Agitate the entire second stage regulator while submerged to allow the warm water to flow in and out of the housing, this will further loosen any mineral deposits and help flush them out. Also agitate the first stage regulator to ensure water has entered the ambientwater ports. If the regulator is equipped with an alternate air source, gauge console, and inflator hose, soak these and agitate as needed.
b. If soaking the regulator while pressurized is not feasible, it may be soaked unpressurized. Be sure the dust cap or DIN protector cap is secure over the first stage inlet or threaded connector. DO NOT depress the purge button or turn the adjustment knob or lever while regulator is submerged.
NOTE: When soaking or rinsing the SeaAir regulator unpressurized, check to ensure that the second-stage adjustment knob is turned completely 'in' (clockwise) to prevent moisture from entering the valve and LP hose.
CAUTION: DO NOT depress the purge button, loosen the first stage yoke screw, or turn the second stage adjustment knob all the way 'out' (SeaAir model) if the regulator is submerged unpressurized. Doing so will allow water to enter, and will require that the regulator be returned to an Authorized XS Scuba Dealer for service.
4. If regulator has been soaking in water, remove the regulator and cylinder from the water bath and wipe the regulator as dry as possible. Next, depressurize the regulator by turning the cylinder valve hand wheel off (clockwise). While looking at the submersible pressure gauge face, depress the purge button, continue to depress the purge button until the gauge reads zero and air flow can no longer be heard. Remove the regulator from the cylinder valve.
5. If the regulator is to be stored for a long period, it is good practice to wipe the hoses and rubber gauge boot with a light film of non-aerosol silicone grease, using a soft cloth.
6. The SeaAir regulator should be stored with the knob or lever turned all the way out. This will help extend the life of the low pressure seat.
7. When the regulator is completely dry, store it in a clean equipment box or sealed in a plastic bag. DO NOT store it where it may be exposed to excessive heat or near an electrical motor, which produces ozone. Prolonged exposure to extreme heat, ozone, chlorine, and ultraviolet rays can cause premature degradation of rubber parts and components.
8. Never store the regulator while it is still attached to a cylinder.
9. DO not use any type of solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part of the regulator. DO not expose any part of the regulator to aerosol sprays as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
DO NOT attempt to perform any disassembly or service of your regulator. Doing so may cause the regulator to malfunction, and will render the XS Scuba warranty null and void. All service must be performed by an Authorized XS Scuba Dealer.
