    Titan 3 button gas block

    So i bought the block from a user on here & he said the block had less than 10 dives (most of my dives are fresh water except for dive trips so wasn't worried bout the type of block). Anyways, i get the hoses from OO & output connector from AH & go to the swamp today. Splash & press dil button & see half the gas coming out the offboard port. Try the O2 button & same thing. Also noticed white tribolube(?) coming out the offboard port. Any ideas?

    Do you have the tool to pull out the valves? If the Dil and O2 don't leak until you press them, then those two valves are probably OK, and you could have a split o-ring on the valve for the offboard. Did the unit hold its pos and neg test?

    unit didnt have a strong pos/neg hold, now that you bring it up. At the lake the offboard only leaked when either O2 or Dil buttons were pushed. I later put it in a pool & a 1/8" bubble stream flowed from the offboard fitting. I don't have the tool but i think i can get one from Trident, correct?

    I do not think these have any type of check valves on them.

    Usually this is always the fault of the offboard valve itself. when in the water it is not sealed and water will get into the lower fitting and will never be rinsed good. Corrosion will start and the leak begins.

    After the repair is done, make sure to flush out the lower area of the offboard during your rinse by pushing both the dil and offboard buttons. It is not the perfect solution but it will help greatly.

    I thin the Titan block is made from aluminum and it is critical that it is taken apart and cleaned regularly to prevent corrosion that prohibits the disassembly. The delrin ones (rEvo or Curts) do not have this issue.

    so it's a matter of disassembling the offboard button/valve & changing o-ring? This is the tool I thought wss the correct one fors_td_SA69.gif the Titan...SA69, from Trident

    That's the correct tool to remove the valve, however https://www.divegearexpress.com/infl...l-w-o-ring-kit will remove the valve and also has the correct size hex holes so you can also use it to disassemble the valve once it is removed (and comes with an O ring kit to rebuild the valve).

    Be careful because from memory the valve for the O2 and the bottom is recessed, so the small tool might not work. I am trying to find my barrel shaped one before I use mine again because they need to be stripped and cleaned regularly.
