This is a one way vacuum valve, which is available in several styles to support various housing configurations. These Vacuum Valves contain an integrated vacuum release, and a redundant waterproof cap. No tools are required to open the housing after creating a vacuum, as the vacuum is released with a simple knurled nut.

Building up vacuum:
    1. Remove the vacuum valve cap.
    2. Make sure the vacuum release ring is at its closed position by turning it clockwise until it cannot go any further.
    3. Connect the hand pump (or BCD low pressure Inflator hose for dual activation vacuum valve 25613, 25623) to the vacuum valve and pump several times until it reaches the target vacuum level. The LED light will turn flashing yellow while vacuum is building up, then steady green when the target vacuum level is reached.

      Caution: Please DO NOT attempt to go over the designated vacuum level, i.e. stop pumping when the LED turn green. Excessive vacuum level may lead to the malfunctioning of the camera and lens.

      Attention: Although the vacuum indicator is designed to compensate for a certain amount of temperature variation, it is recommended to conduct the vacuum test in an environment where the temperature is stable.

    4. After the target vacuum level is reached, i.e. steady green light, attach the cap back to the vacuum valve. It is recommended to leave the housing for at least 20mins to ensure it is sealed. If the LED light changes from steady green light to rapidly flashing yellow light, that means there is a leakage and please check every o-ring and conduct the vacuum test again.
    5. Please ensure that the cap is attached back to the vacuum valve before going underwater.
    6. Vacuum can be released by turning the vacuum release ring anti-clockwise.

    After start up:

    How long will it take for my order to arrive after I make payment?

    That depends on where you live and whether we have an item in stock or not. While we do have many items in stock, we don't carry everything. (For example, we do not stock most housings or ports as there are just too many!) If you need an item in a hurry, it's a good idea to contact us and find out if your item is in stock, or if we can get it in a hurry - we often can!

    If we have it in stock, we can usually send it out as soon as we receive payment (1-3 business days), or you can pick it up. If an item is not in stock, we'll need to order it from our suppliers, which means it can take 1-2 weeks to arrive at your door (usually closer to a week).

    Sometimes delivery can take longer, if our manufacturers are out of stock, for example, but this is unusual - we let customers know as soon as possible if something like this happens.

    How do you ship my NZ orders?
