Suunto has announced a recall of the company’s Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Tank PODs.

The company said it had “identified a potential safety risk” affecting the two instruments which wirelessly transmit tank air pressure to compatible dive computers.

According to Suunto:

“In two reported incidents, the exterior case of a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter has failed during regular dry land pressure testing. Although extremely rare, this represents a potential risk of injury due to the risk of bursting.”

So if you own either instrument, Suunto says to bring it to an authorized Suunto dive dealer or service center for a free inspection and upgrade. Of course, don’t use either the transmitters or Tank POD until the upgrade is done.

The company further says:

“Suunto sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this. As a complementary service, Suunto will provide a battery replacement free of charge and a one-year warranty from the date of inspection for all upgraded products.”
