Brownie’s Third Lung Recalls Its Hookah Air Compressors

from the February, 2009 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Note to subscribers: Whenever Undercurrent hears of a recall, we e-mail our subscribers with the recall information and include it in our newsletter. We previously publicized recalls of both the Aeris and Halcyon inflators. Here’s the latest:

While few real divers use a hookah - - air supplied through hoses connected to a compressor either back on the boat or floating in a buoy - - their kids might. So be aware that Brownie’s Third Lung has problems with components in some models of its compressors that can cause premature wear and tear, and also stop air flow. Brownie’s will inspect, repair and upgrade affected compressors at no charge and renew the warranty for another year.

The recall is for compressors manufactured since July 2007 with serial numbers 14421 to 15715 (that’s for models F280X, F390X, C270, C390, CTD390) and serial numbers 14344 to 15762 (models E250 and EC2). The serial numbers are printed on a metal tag on the rim of the yellow storage case or, for commercial models, on the deck. Call Brownie’s sales department at 800-327-0412 for a return authorization and details about shipping back the compressor.
