Maintenance & CO2 Bottles:
You can change the bottles yourself if required. The lifejackets come with one bottle set up ready to go but we recommend purchasing a back up in case the bottle is deloyed. (One inflation per bottle). Hutchwilco replacement bottles come with a new seal for the bottle and resistance clip to help prevent it being accidentally set of by being tugged etc. The automatic version also has the replacement auto mechanism with clear instructions.
It is easy to get inside and inflate them via the mouth piece and check for holes/damage. You can also check the bottle for corrosion and dampness on the auto's. They are recommended to be serviced every 18 months by the manufacturers and the Smart Crew would be happy to provide a quote on request.
