    Many Thanks for your generous donation. Good Karma.

    The most gratifying thing we do is to get scuba gear out of garages, serviced, and back into the water. This process is referred to as reuse. It is a greener process than recycling (where objects are reduced to raw material and processed into new objects).

    You can sleep well knowing that every dollar spent on reused dive gear goes back into our national economy. I encourage you to support businesses who sell reused products.


      Your support helps our world in a number of ways: *

    • Reuse reduces the strain on valuable resources, such as fuel, forests and water supplies, and therefore helps sustain viable Oceans worldwide.
    • Reuse saves money in purchases and disposal costs
    • Reuse keeps goods and materials out of wasteful landfills
    • Reuse creates less air and water pollution than making a new item or recycling (recycling is reprocessing an item into raw material for use in a new product).
    • Reuse preserves the “embodied energy” that was originally used to manufacture an item
    • Reuse results in less hazardous waste
    • Reuse generates new business and employment opportunities
    • Reuse creates an affordable supply of goods that are often of better quality than what is currently manufactured.

    There are many good reasons for us to reuse products such as scuba equipment.

    If you buy, sell, or donate through Discount Divers Supply, you helped make the world a better place in many ways.

    Discount Divers Supply has been in the business of selling used equipment since 1993.

    It has been my privilege to help provide functional serviced and safe used dive equipment to thousands of happy customers over the years.

    During the period of 2010 until the end of 2016 we served some 9,400 individual customers with only 17 negative reviews online.

    That is a satisfaction rate of 9,383/9,400 or 99.82% as of early Jan, 2017.

    We benefit from good feedback and appreciate hearing from you. I don't pressure friends to crank out good on-line reviews or hire a company to produce a favorable online presence. I also don't pay for on-line advertising to ensure preferential treatment from Websites that profit from promoting negativity.

    That being said, I appreciate customer feedback from all sources and we look forward to serving you.

    Happy Selling and Happy Buying!
