It's time to check the dates on mine again and I have saved the old stuff to do my own swimming pool test.

Great job bringing awareness about water safety Dee~! I've got two self inflates. And carry two other types in the boat just to make sure I'm legal should one of the CO2 cylinders fail inspection on the inflateables. But I usually check them first thing anyway. thumb

I've always been a little leery of the auto inflates not working so I wear the old traditional type vest. I may reconsider....enjoyed the video.

Very good video, thanks!

The downside to the auto inflates is simply that you need to be vigilant in checking them. I would check mine every month or so, but one time I found it was bad and who knows how many trips it was like that for. Now I check every trip and keep a spare kit, it only takes 5 seconds to look inside the velcro flap when you first put it on.

For those of you that don't know, there is a disk near the co2 cartridge that is green for good and turns red when it is bad (probably different for different models but I think a lot look like this).

Not quite sure what you mean by "bad" but on mine that looks just like that,, the more the bobbin cartridge screwed down the more it turns green, unscrewing the bobbin cartridge, the color will turn red the more it is unscrewed.

exactly, when its green like yours is it is good. when you are screwing it in you will notice that red go away. but if it is all the way screwed in and you see that red, then you need a new rearm kit.

I get it. ..If the co2 cartridge is punctured the indicator turns red. The tension has been released from the co2 cartridge end.
