Suit Repairs


This is where it all began for us and we pride ourselves on the job we do even after all these years. Our staff and facilities can repair almost any type of drysuit, wetsuit or semi-dry no matter what age or condition. From a new cuff seal to a complete alteration, we look after your suit and will always do the best job possible.

Wetsuit & Drysuit Alterations/Tailoring


You'd be surprised how many different alterations we've been asked to do over the years. From a few more or less inches in the body to removing and sealing up arms, we never shy away from a challenge.
If you have a suit that you think needs to be altered, please don't hesitate to contact us and we can talk it through with you.


Airgun Cylinder Testing


Every pressure cylinder has to be tested over time, no matter what its use. The frequency of this test however varies. For cylinders with a SCUBA diving valve, these need to be tested every 30 months, however for cylinders with a surface valve designed for airgun use, the test schedule is once every 5 years. If you are unsure of the type of valve that your cylinder has, please don't hesitate to contact us and we can talk it through with you.
Using the best diagnostic equipment available, Hydrotech is one of the UK's leading cylinder service centres. Our IDEST and UKAS approved technicians are capable of servicing your equipment to the highest standard it deserves. To see more details about airgun cylinder testing, please look at our airgun cylinder testing page.
