GETTING STARTED
When you buy the sea scooter the battery is disconnected and needs to be charged. Follow the instructions on
page 9 – Battery Use, Charging the Battery – for charging and connection.
Using the Sea Scooter for Swimming and Snorkeling
When swimming or snorkeling the sea scooter should be kept positively buoyant – this is done by simply making
sure the Buoyancy Chamber is empty and fitted inside the Nose Cone.
To use the sea scooter for swimming or snorkeling follow these instructions.
1.
Charge the battery – see page 9 for instructions. Make sure that when you finish charging the battery the
Vent Plug is closed.
2.
Place the sea scooter into the water so the Handle, Outer Nose Cone and Nozzle fill with water.
3.
When ready to set off, switch the Master Switch to the ON position shown in Figure 2.
4.
Pull and hold one or both Triggers to start the Propeller.
5.
To stop the Propeller, simply release the Trigger.
6.
Always turn the Master Switch OFF when out of the water.
7.
Proper posture when using the sea scooter is important to achieve the maximum speed – see Figure 3 for the
correct position of the sea scooter when using it.
CAUTION: Do not dive deeper than
you would normally when snorkeling to
ensure you can get back to the surface
safely.
Use of Variable Speed
Your sea scooter features two speeds – for normal speed, pull the right trigger only. For the higher speed, pull both
triggers together.
7
Using the Sea Scooter for Diving – Adjusting the Buoyancy
Your sea scooter can be used for diving up to 30 meters but will need to be adjusted for neutral buoyancy. The sea
scooter must never be adjusted for negative buoyancy to avoid it from sinking if accidentally released.
To adjust the neutral buoyancy, follow these instructions.
1.
Make sure the sea scooter Master Switch is in the OFF position.
2.
Remove the sea scooter from the water, give a half turn to turn the Latches, remove them – see Figure 4 –
and remove the Buoyancy Control Chamber.
3.
Open the Buoyancy Chamber and add a small amount of rocks or a lead weight – see Figure 5.
4.
Replace the Buoyancy Chamber, Nose Cone and Latches and place the sea scooter in the water. If the sea
scooter is neutrally buoyant it will just float in the water.
5.
If the sea scooter sinks, remove rocks until it is neutrally buoyant. If the sea scooter is still positively buoyant
repeat step 3 until it is neutrally buoyant.
CAUTION:
If the sea scooter is later used for swimming or
snorkeling be sure to remove the weight from the Buoyancy Chamber
so the sea scooter has positive buoyancy.

BATTERY USE
 The Battery Housing should always be ventilated during charging to allow potentially explosive gasses to
dissipate. Before removing/attaching any battery cables always allow two minutes for any gasses to dissipate.
 ALWAYS plug the charger jack into the charging socket first and then plug into the mains. When charging is
complete, unplug the charger from the mains first and then from the charging socket.
 ALWAYS ensure the charger socket is DRY before plugging in a live charger.
 NEVER place a battery in a sealed container when charging.
 NEVER charge the battery near water.
 If in doubt of the state of the battery, recharge it until the indicator on the battery charger indicates full charge.

Sand Or Grit On Seals
Sand or grit is the enemy of seals. Correct maintenance and care is essential. To remove sand or grit from the
seals, rinse the seals in fresh water and apply fresh lubricant. If there is sand inside the Battery Housing, gently
brush the sand from the unit taking care not to scratch the sealing surfaces.
14
Sea Scooter Cuts Out
To protect the electronic circuit of your sea scooter from damage, a safety mechanism has been built in that cuts the
power if a wall or rock or other immovable object is hit. If this occurs simply wait for a short period to allow the sea
scooter to reset itself and resume use.
Accidental Flooding
Be sure to keep the seals sand and grit free to ensure they keep water out and to close the Vent Plug after
accessing the Battery Chamber. However, should the seals not be clean or the Vent Plug is left open and water
enters the Battery Chamber, your sea scooter will not be damaged as it is designed for protection against accidental
flooding. If water enters the Battery Chamber the sea scooter will automatically stop functioning. If this occurs:
1.
Remove the unit from the water.
2.
Open the Battery Chamber, remove the battery, and if salt water has entered the chamber rinse it out with
fresh water.
3.
Dry the Battery Chamber and Battery thoroughly and reassemble and the unit is ready for use.
