Drysuit Repairs

(SCROLL DOWN FOR PRICES)

Our dedicated drysuit repair workshop has been operational since June 2006. Here we undertake the replacement of seals, zips, valves and boots as well as doing alterations, leak repairs and testing on all makes of diving drysuits, sailing drysuits, water-ski suits and kayak jackets. We keep stock of a vast array of drysuit components so repairs can normally be done in just a few days. Our workmanship and components supplied are fully guaranteed.

If you don’t live in Cape Town the best way of getting your suit to us is with PostNet. Pop it in a box addressed to; BlueFlash 073 1676677, care of PostNet Steenberg Village.  Take it to your nearest PostNet branch and they will take it from there. It will cost between R100 and R200 and the return postage (back to your PostNet branch) will be included in the repairs invoice.  Turn-around times vary between just a few days to a few weeks depending on how busy we are.

Dive shops can also make use of our services to repair their client’s drysuits at trade rates.

Our workmanship and components supplied carry a full warranty provided that the correct maintenance has been carried out and the drysuit has not been abused. The only warranty exclusions are:

      • The warranty on metal or plastic zips expires after 100 dives or 2 years.
      • There is no warranty on metal or plastic zips fitted to front-entry drysuits where the design allows for a tight bend in the zip at the shoulder or hip.
      • There is no warranty on repairs to uncompressed neoprene drysuits and light-weight bi-laminate drysuits.
      • There is no warranty on latex seals due to the fragile nature of thin latex products.
