Rating: Good purchase
Reviewer: Gregory R.  -  View all my reviews
I am a warm water sport diver so I am not going to really challenge a regulator. Very happy with second stage. Adjustment is nice and breaths very easy. Possible to forget you are on a reg and let it slip. Bubbles are diverted away from mask and do not interfere with macro photography. First stage hose routing is forward on horizontal plane which tends to challenge the upper position strap on my AquaLung Axiom I3 BCD causing me to position tank a bit lower than if hose routing was in vertical plane Not a big deal but my daughters Mares seems easier to deal with. Overall very happy with high quality finish and comfortable breather. Unless you spend the $ for titanium there is not much room for improvement.

Rating: Good reg
Reviewer: Shawn Lonsfjord  -  View all my reviews
I was pleased with the easy draw of the Seaair Tri. My air consumption noticeably lowered with its use. I noticed no free-flow in 6 daays of diving. The flow adjustment is a nice addition, although I really felt no need to either restrict or increase the airflow setting on dives down to 135". I did play with it though & found it worked adequately. I would highly recommend this set-up.

Rating: Try the Tri Metal
Reviewer: Douglas Sourbeer
This regulator has a swivel body which helps with hose placement or setup. Also there ar 4 Lp ports and 2 Hp ports. I used this with the Seaair secondary in 51 degree F at 65 ft and found it very comfortable. A few minutes and you forget its there. Easy to recommend expecially at the price.

Rating: Sweet breather
Reviewer: David Martin  -  View all my reviews
This reg got high marks from scuba labs and it is no wonder. Dry in virtually any position the reg breaths easy on both shallow and deep dives. The adjustable air flow is there and works well if you want to tune it to depth. Or just set it and forget it and it will still breath easy. A bargain for the price compared to other regs.

Rating: Great regulator
Reviewer: Beau Rampey  -  View all my reviews
this is the first regulator i have owned. i have tried many regulators both from other people and rentals as well. this regulator feels very solid and breathes easily. i live in santa barbara california, and here most of the retail shops sell aqualung titan regs, or atomic regulators. i absolutely dislike aqualung regulators which ive used many times on rental. they have a cheap toy feel to them. the atomic regulators usualy have a kind of ball socket between the second stage hose and second stage regulator which makes it more comfortable in your mouth. they are highly rated, however, they breath the same as an xs tri-metal and have a less comfortable mouthpiece and cost almost 3x more money. my only complaint on the xs scuba trimetal regulator is that the adjustment knob is strange, and has been unpredictaby taken in sand on some of my beach dives. this regulator definetly is well built and performs like many high priced regulators.

Rating: Quality... at a price you can afford.
Reviewer: David Kaplar
This regulator works with me to control my breathing... and gain more bottom time. I didnt want to spend alot of money because I only dive during lobster season... but I needed a new one after 18 years with my first regulator. The technology has improved quite a bit... it is easy to hold in my mouth... and easy to breath those long, slow, relaxed breaths... I didnt feel like I was fighting it. More bottom time means more lobster in the pot on the stove.

Rating: Breathin Easy!
Reviewer: Brian Olson Instructor
One of the easiest breathing regs I have ever used! This unit has a diver-adjustable air-flow which cuts down on free-flow, but allows you to breathe at depth like youre still standing on the deck. The swivel at the first stage allows for ease of movement with no jaw fatigue. It also has Five low pressure ports and Two high pressure ports which means that this regulator can be configured as a primary with a drysuit hose or as a stand-alone pony bottle reg. This regulator performs as well as much more expensive models for half the price.

Questions and Answers for XS Scuba Seaair Tri-Metal Regulator:


  • George:

    Hello, I was wondering what regulators are the best for under $400.00. My instructor also said I need a second on just incase this one fails and he says the second ones are not that much money. Also I was wondering about a diving watch for air and so on. I am trying to save some money so could you help me on this. Thank you, George

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello George, the regulator I would suggest for you is the Genesis GS2000 Scuba Regulator web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-34/033165/Genesis-GS2000-Scuba-Regulator.html. Then for the octo I would suggest the XS Scuba Airwave Scuba Octo web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-33/035252/XS-Scuba-Airwave-Octopus.html. Then you are still under your $400 budget. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Luis:

    Hi, are the hoses included or I need to buy them separately? Thank you.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The hose for the 1st and 2nd stage is included.

Regulators
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.
HAVE YOUR REGULATOR SERVICED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR FROM AN AUTHORIZED XS SCUBA DEALER. YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND THE MECHANICAL INTEGRITY OF YOUR REGULATOR MAY DEPEND ON IT.
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.
