ALTERNATE AIR SOURCES
An alternate air source, also called an Octopus or Octo, is a backup regulator that can be used by others in an out-of-air emergency or if your regulator fails. Octos generally have longer hoses and bright yellow bodies that can be easily spotted in an emergency. Another option is to have an integrated alternate air source, which is connected to your BCD and has your inflate and deflate buttons integrated into the hose. This option is more streamlined and less prone to getting tangled with your equipment.
Below is the selection of alternate air sources we have available for purchase at our facility. Stop by and our retail specialists will be happy to answer any questions.
