Aqua Lung is recalling approximately 53,000 Aqua Lung Powerline inflators installed on Aqua Lung and Apeks Black Ice buoyancy compensators.

The inflation button can remain depressed and cause the buoyancy compensators to continue inflating, resulting in an uncontrolled ascent. This poses injury and drowning hazards to the diver.

The affected Powerline inflators measure about 20 inches long and 3.5 inches wide and have a date code beginning with H printed on the inflator body.

The firm has received 60 reports of the Powerline inflators continuing to inflate. No injuries have been reported, to date.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Powerline inflators and contact Aqua Lung to receive a free repair, which consists of the replacement of the inflation button by an authorized Aqua Lung dealer.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers can contact Aqua Lung at (844) 812-7690.
