Servicing & Self Inspection
As with all inflatable Life Jackets, it's a legal requirement to service them annually as per the manufactures instructions.
These All Weather Jackets can be self serviced for the first two years, but it is highly recommended to have them professionally serviced by an authorised service agent on the 3rd year.
Here is a copy of the service manual & self inspection checklist.
PROOF OF PURCHASE
To ready yourself for when fishing authorities check your safety equipment, it is important you have your proof of purchase with you when out boating. The best way to do this is to put a copy of your PFD receipt/invoice inside a sealable bag like a Glad ziplock bag, and then put this in your pfd pocket.
Why do I need to do this? Your legal servicing requirements start from the date of purchase not the manufacturer date.
UNDERSTANDING PFD STANDARDS
The New Australian Standard is AS4758 (as of July 2010)
The change that will be most noticeable is a new way of identifying PFDs for different uses.
The new standard introduces the identification of PFDs by 'levels'.
- Level 150 - similar to inflatable PFD Type 1 and suitable for offshore use
- Level 100 - similar to PFD Type 1 and the minimum requirement for offshore use
- Level 50 - similar to PFD Type 2
- Level 50 Special Purpose (50S) - to replace PFD Type 3

Although the Safety Standards for life jackets apply national wide, the situations in which they must be worn may vary in each state.
Make sure you check the regulations in your local area before hitting the water.
