When DESCO ships a new diving helmet it is as safe, reliable, and simple to operate and maintain as possible. With regular care a DESCO diving helmet should give many years of trouble free service. The simplicity and reliability of our diving helmets however should not lull a diver into complacency. All of our diving helmets should receive regular care and maintenance to keep them in top condition. The helmets as designed are the best combination of attributes to give all round satisfactory performance. No diving helmet should be "field modified". If special requirements are needed DESCO will work with you to effect a safe and reliable modification. DESCO has always been sensitive to the needs of the diving industry as evidenced by the variety of diving helmet styles we offer. As DESCO strives to make diving equipment better, safer, and more user friendly we welcome comments and suggestions from diving companies, regulating agencies, and especially divers, whose safety is our ultimate goal.

Also DESCO welcomes input from our customers on improvements to our products, and ideas for new products to fill their needs. Two major examples of customer suggested changes were the adoption of the double exhaust valve, and the double air inlet elbow on the Air Hat. All suggestions are considered and those which will enhance safety, functionality, or the value of the product will be adopted. Not all suggested changes are adopted as they may not be applicable or acceptable to the majority of customers.
