HI
Can someone tell me how to stop a Jetstream from leaking? The 2nd stage is bubbling about every 1 to 2 seconds, & is really doing my head in. I have only had it 2 weeks & used it once. I took it back to the shop I got it from & they said that they all leak & it's normal. This sounds like bullsh*t to me, I reckon it needs adjusting but don't know how. Any suggestions? Cheers.

If you look in side the Jetstream you will see a grub screw that is slackened by an allen key. If you remove the hose then gently remove the valve assy you will see that once the grub screw is slackend you can screw and unscrew the bar. Using the knurled part of this bar turn it clockwise (DOING UP) 1/4 of a turn. This is how you tune the the Jetstream. I am assuming from your posting that it is leaking from the mouth piece. This information is provided for advice only and i can not be held responsible for any issues arrisin from doing this your self. My advice is to go to Portland Oceaneering in Weymouth. Give them a call and take it from there.
PS mine do not leak
