The diver relies on the umbilical to supply the breathing gas. Failure or contamination of the umbilical will put the commercial harvester at risk. Hoodsport’N Dive offers two services to test or clean the diver’s umbilical line. We can conduct the services separately or at a combined price.
Umbilical Pressure Test
The umbilical pressure test is required to ensure the proper functioning of the umbilical fittings and the integrity of the hose liner. The Umbilical is pressurized to 500 psi and held for 30 minutes. During this time the hose is sprayed to check for bubbles and examined for signs of wear and tear that require attention.
COST: $150 – Price may be increased based on the location of the testing and the number of tests being performed
Occasionally the umbilical can get fouled with smells and contaminates. Hoodsport’N Dive offers a service to flush an odor-neutralizing and disinfectant solution through the umbilical line. The cleaning process takes 15 minutes and we flush for an additional 15 minutes to ensure all contaminants have been removed.
Cost $150 – Price may be increased based on location of the testing and the number of tests being performed
Combined Pressure and Cleaning Price
Cost $275 for both services – price may be increased based on the location of the testing and the number of tests being performed
