You see more and more underwater scooters on the waterfront, so it is the ultimate way to move
around underwater without using a lot of breathing gas.
To be able to rely on your scooter in your dive planning, it is necessary to have your scooter serviced
Especially in technical dives, where you cannot go to the surface to solve your problem, you must be
able to rely on your equipment.
You can contact Scuba Support for the maintenance of your underwater scooter, whether it is a Suex,
Gavin, Silent Submersion or DiveX DPVs, we often have the parts in stock as standard. In addition to
more than 20 years of experience and a large stock of parts, we also have many special tools in our
workshop to ensure that your scooter is also tested after maintenance, such as a burn test for the
battery pack and a vacuum system to test the scooter for airtightness so to check if the scooter
compartments are waterproof.
We offer repair, maintenance, modification and advice for various brands, specializing in the Suex,
Gavin and Silent Submersion.

How does that work with DPV maintenance?
You bring your scooter to us, complete with batteries and charger and we register the data in our
Subsequently, the service is scheduled and the underwater scooter is transferred to our workshop.
In our workshop, the battery is checked and placed on the charger, to check the battery and charger
and to prepare the battery for the burn test, a test to determine the condition of the battery.
When the battery charger indicates that the battery is full, the battery is disconnected and set aside
for an hour to 'relax', after which it is connected to the burntester.
With a constant load, the battery is discharged and the time it takes is recorded, giving an accurate
picture of the battery's condition.
Suex has put together service kits for the scooter models containing all parts that need to bereplaced during the service. We only use original service parts during maintenance.
DISASSEMBLY NOSE CONE
The Suex Nose cone is disassembled and cleaned.
Often there is sand and dirt between the knob and the nose cone, which must be removed to
prevent wear due to sanding.
The seals around the knob and the o-ring seal of the nosecone are also replaced and greased again.
Then the nose cone is checked for leakage with the vacuum tester
The body is removed from the DPV, checked and cleaned, so that we can access everything in the
engine part of the underwater scooter.
BACK END / MOTOR COMPARTMENT
The Back-end, also called Engine part or compartment, is the technical heart of the scooter.
This includes the motor with the gear transmission, the motor control, the trigger mechanism, the
motor seal, etc.
We start with the motor, we first blow it clean with compressed air to make sure that the carbon of
the carbon brushes does not accumulate in the motor, this can cause it to close with all the damage
We also check the carbon brushes and the collector of the motor for wear and if necessary the
collector is polished and the carbon brushes are replaced.
If the collector is badly burned in, the collector will have to be turned in a lathe.
PROPELLER AND MOTOR SEAL
We remove the propeller from the scooter, sometimes hairs, water plants or fishing lines are
wrapped around the shaft. This can cause damage to the motor seal, resulting in leakage.
