Product Overview

The RS-1001 First Stage Regulator features a balanced diaphragm system design and upgraded HP poppet assembly for enhanced reliability. This balanced diaphragm system maintains minimum variation in intermediate pressure in relation to changes-in-residual tank pressure. The balanced diaphragm, first stage regulator is inherently environmentally sealed. The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the delicate internal parts are exposed to contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids. These environmental contaminants can cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance.

The first stage feature two high-flow low-pressure ports (LP) to optimize second stage performance for easier breathing. The high flow ports are engineered for the smoothest air delivery possible to the primary and octopus second stages at all tank pressures. The RS-1001 First Stage also comes equipped with two standard LP ports with 3/8" threads and two high pressure port (HP) with 7/16" threads. The first stage regulator weighs 1.87 lbs. (850 g).

The RS-1001 second stage features an ortho-conscious silicone mouthpiece for comfort and a diver adjustable sensitivity control to deliver air smoothly with each breath. The "surface" or "dive" control allows the user to set the ease of breathing for varying sections of the dive. The surface" position decreases the likelihood of a free flow and also is recommended for cold water diving. In the dive" position the control allows the regulator to power assist the diver as they breathe using a venturi effect. The exhaust valve features a large and flexible design for extremely low exhaust resistance. The 2'nd Stage is a dependable downstream demand valve design. The second stage regulator comes with a 29" (74 cm) low pressure 3/8" threaded hose and the second stage and hose weigh 5.28 oz. (150 g). The regulator system comes with an owner's manual.
