Welcome to our Diving Service Center

We setup our service center and filling station in the heart of the French cave country in Lot.
We enjoy to provide you the best service, and all the help you need to arrange your stay.

About us

Since 2014 we built slowly our online shop as passionates, always coming in Lot and travelling to numerous other places.

We moved in Lot, French Cave Country, end of 2018 with an opportunity in a beautiful place in the region, offering central position to the caves, large space, and easy logistic access.

We offer services to divers and instructors in addition to the store, service center, filling station, and equipment rental.

Our place is 15 minutes from Ressel, and more or less 20/30 minutes to most of main caves (Marchepied, Landenouse, Saint Sauveur, Cabouy, Font Del Truffe...), allowing to to focus on your pleasure, loosing less time driving.
More, we are just 15 minutes from Figeac, biggest city around, with shops, public market, lot of bars and restaurants, bowling, cinema etc. Much more easy than some other villages.

Check our Google Cave Map to easily find caves and filling center locations.

Filling Station is open 7 days a week from 8h30 to 20h30

Compressors

We have 2 compressors BAUER VERTICUS 15, each is giving 450l/min - 27M3/h. Another 15m3/h compressor is dedicated to continuous flow mixing up to 32%.

Air is filtered trough BAUER Securus P61 cartridge for excellent air purity.

Gas banks

We have 4 air banks (5x50L each, total 20x50L 350b, 350M3 of air ready to use).
And we have also 3 Nitrox 32 banks (3 of 6x50L 350b, 315M3 of ready to dive Nitrox 32).

Mixer

We built our mixer to make Nitrox and Trimix in continuous flow and fill our banks with up to 32% of oxygen maximum. 2 compressors of 27+15M3/h can make mixed gas in the same time.

Mixing Panel

For mixing, we setup a dedicated solution that combines the advantages of cascading and boosting. 4 banks of Oxygen (4x50L) and 4 banks of Helium (4x50L), are linked to the distribution ramp and a bypass to our booster.

Booster

We use high end boosters and mixers from MPS TECHNOLOGY to make any wished mix.

Some major evolutions are expected to enhance gas manufacturing. Let's follow this!

Safety

For the safety of the blender/s and the customers, all compressors high and low pressure, all air, oxygen, helium and nitrox banks are in a separated room for their storage and ventilation. This allow us ensure a maximum safety in case of incident.
By the way, this give us also a cool ambiant temperature and allow normal sound level for conversation.

Pay What You Use !!

We propose a new principle.

We stock and rent ready to use cylinders that can be used as stage or bailout.
The rental is bit more expensive than empty cylinder, you will be charged only the gas you used.
Pressure and gas analysis are done before and after the rental.
For those cylinders, it is strictly not allowed to fill out of Lot Filling Station.

Example : you rent 1 day an S40 of 100% Oxygen @ 200b for 20€
- as bailout you don't use gas, there is no over cost
- as deco stage; you used 50b, then you are charged the complement (50bx5,8Lx0,025=7,25€) plus the rental, total is 27,25€.


Rental can be done for 1 day, 2 days (-15%) or 5 days (-25%).
