Aqua Lung has conducted a product update of the WSX-25 bladders. The current CE standard is designed for a traditional BCD, which requires the harness/bladder be tested in a vertical position. Originally designed for a cave environment, the WSX-25 was purposefully built without an upper dump valve. An upper dump valve has now been added to the WSX-25 bladder to allow the WSX-25 to meet the standard BCD test criteria.

We are required to sell only the modified version and therefore we must exchange out the bladder on your WSX-25 harness. This is a free of charge service. To arrange receipt your updated bladder, please contact our Customer Service Department at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

RECALL - Select Powerline Inflators

Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary product update of select Powerline inflators. Powerline inflators are found on all non i3 Aqua Lung Buoyancy Compensators and the Apeks Black Ice Buoyancy Compensator. If you have purchased an Aqua Lung BCD/Apeks Black Ice since January 1, 2015, it will need to be inspected to determine if it meets the specific criteria and requires updating. Aqua Lung is concerned that a failure may occur during a dive, causing the Powerline to continue inflating after the inflation button has been released, increasing the potential of an uncontrolled accent. While there have been reports of this occurring underwater, there have not been any reported injuries, Aqua Lung believes that a voluntary safety notice is the safe and prudent thing to do.
