Refilling the Spare Air Xtreme

SPARE AIR XTREME IS QUICK AND EASY TO REFILL!

SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport and Xtreme 6 are refillable, fully self-contained breathing systems. Both models include a Dial Gauge Pressure Indicator allowing you to quickly read the PSI pressure inside the 1.7 or 6 cu ft cylinders. All SPARE AIR Xtremes include a 910S SCUBA Tank Refill Adapter and a 920C Air Compressor Refill Adapter.

All of our adapters thread onto our refill port on the side of our Xtreme Sport regulator and Xtreme 6 1st stage on top of the cylinder. Submersible Systems recommends refilling at a SCUBA shop who can also perform regular tank inspections (required every 5 years) and maintenance to your regulator. While out in the field, an 80 cu ft SCUBA Tank provides the easiest refill without the need for power. A Personal Breathing Air Compressor can be powered by traditional electrical power or a battery.


Refill from SCUBA Tank


SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport can be filled using the 910S SCUBA Tank Refill Adapter attached to a fully pressurized 3000 psi SCUBA tank. Several 1.7 cu ft units can be refilled from a single 80 cu ft tank.

Refill from Personal Breathing Air Compressor


SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport can be filled using a personal breathing air compressor like the Nomad II Portable Compressor powered by 110V, 220V outlet or 12V car battery. A personal breathing air compressor requires a yoke that attaches to our 910S, 920C (included with every SPARE Xtreme) or 930C refill adapter (included with our NOMAD II breathing air compressor). We recommend a quality Air Filter to remove air impurities and moisture created during the pumping process.


Refill at a local Dive Shop


Dive Shops that offer SPARE AIR can refill you SPARE AIR Xtreme utilizing the 920C Air Compressor Refill Adapter. Dive Shops that sell SPARE AIR can maintain and visually inspect your cylinder and service your regulator if necessary. Find a dealer near you.


Refill using a Hand Pump


SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport can be filled using a High Pressure Hand Pump in as little as 10 minutes. Although strenuous, a hand pump may be the only option in some remote locations where no other option is available. (Spare Air 3.0 cu ft shown) 

Refill from SCUBA Tank


SPARE AIR Xtreme 6 can be filled using the 910S SCUBA Tank Refill Adapter attached to a fully pressurized 3000 psi SCUBA tank. Only a few 6 cu ft units can be filled from a single 80 cu ft tank and may not achieve the maximum possible 3000 psi.


Refill from Personal Breathing Air Compressor


SPARE AIR Xtreme 6 can be filled using a personal breathing air compressor like the Nomad II Portable Compressor powered by 110V, 220V outlet or 12V car battery. A personal breathing air compressor requires a yoke that attaches to our 910S, 920C (included with every SPARE Xtreme) or 930C refill adapter (included with our NOMAD II breathing air compressor). We recommend a quality Air Filter to remove air impurities and moisture created during the pumping process.


Refill at a local Dive Shop


Dive Shops can refill you SPARE AIR Xtreme 6 utilizing the 920C Air Compressor Refill Adapter. The regulator can also be serviced by most Dive Shops. Find a SPARE AIR dealer near you.


Refill using a Hand Pump


SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport can be filled using a High Pressure Hand Pump but be aware it can take over 40 minutes and at least 900 pumps to refill the 6.0 cu ft cylinder. For more details about using a hand pump, visit ssishoppingcart.com

SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport and Xtreme 6 should be stored full or with some positive pressure to prevent contaminants from entering the cylinder. Store in a clean, dry environment with optimum temperatures of 50-75ºF for best product performance. Avoid direct sunlight, automobile trunks or other areas subject to temperature extremes. Industry guidelines recommend replacing air in cylinders annually.

Note: if the unit is completely emptied of air in any underwater conditions, refer to the manual regarding proper servicing before refilling your SPARE AIR Xtreme Sport or Xtreme 6.
