Operational Safety Guidelines
Before you use our products, please go through the instructions thoroughly before setting out. IAQUA or any of iAQUA’s partners will take no responsibility for any loss occurring due to improper use of our products. Proper operational guidelines of iAQUA products is listed below and in the instructions manual provided with every AquaDart product. Please read carefully before using the iAQUA products.
We have engineered AquaDart to provide fun and endurance on the right side of extreme. It has been designed to withstand depths, speeds and temperatures well beyond the range of mere mortals like us, so please use well within your own limits for your own safety. AquaDarts are very powerful and high-performance gear and they must be operated, handled and maintained carefully and conscientiously. Misuse may shorten the unit’s life, or worse, yours! The handling and controls have been designed to be balanced and intuitive but like riding a bike, it takes a little getting used to. We suggest you practice in shallow protected water before heading out to deeper environments.
Only suitable for confident swimmers over 16 years of age who are fit and healthy. If you have any medical condition that may be affected by extreme sports or strenuous activity, please consult a physician before operating.
Always wear life-jacket or buoyancy aid in open water. Also recommend that when operated in open water, users bring a personal floatation device, whistle and beacon for attracting attention.
When possible, keep the shoreline or origin boat in plain sight. In case of large swell keep within swimming range from point of origin.
AquaDart is not a floatation device and therefore is not suitable as a swimming aid or for life-saving. AquaDart is only slightly buoyant to enhance underwater handling. It will therefore float to the surface slowly if unassisted by the operator.
If you are operating AquaDart solo, always tell a buddy or nominated companion where you are intending on going and how long you will be.
In case of loss of power or malfunction during diving – LET GO OF AQUADART AND SWIM FREE TO SURFACE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PULL AQUADART UNIT TO THE SURFACE – it will float to the surface in time.
Do not use in strong currents, waves, bad weather or poor visibility. Recommend use of full wetsuit in cool or cold water to avoid hypothermia.
Holding on to AquaDart is physically challenging, particularly underwater where the resistance underwater is 12 times that of air. Diving with AquaDart is a strenuous activity and recommended that lower power levels are used when fully submerged. Power levels 4, 5 & 6 are best used at surface level. Using high power levels for sustained periods may cause injury to arms, shoulders and neck – if you feel any discomfort drop to a lower gear or stop to rest. Do not physically attach yourself to AquaDart by way of clips, lines, knots or carabiners at any time.
Not suitable for use with SCUBA equipment without proper training. AquaDart can only be used with compressed air if user has undergone training for operation of DPVs (Diver Propulsion Vessel). High risk of decompression sickness due to rapid (uncontrolled) ascents. Risk to life!
The depth meter on the user display is indicative only and should not be taken as an accurate depth reading. It does not substitute a dive computer.
Do not use in close proximity to swimmers or divers. AquaDart is capable of underwater speeds much greater than swimmers or divers, please respect their space.
Not for use in marinas, harbours, shipping lanes, designated swimming areas or any restricted areas.
Always keep a minimum safe distance of 5m from persons or objects. Keep regular observations of nearby boats, buoys, fishing lines or hazards.
Plan your route, observe battery charge and return to base in good time. AquaDart’s ECU will automatically limit the gear when battery becomes critically low – this ‘get me home’ mode consumes less power. If the on-screen warnings are ignored and the unit is continued to be used it risks turning off completely.
Do not wear loose clothing, keep long hair up or in a swim-cap and avoid trailing leads, straps or belts when operating. Risk of injury if loose clothing or foreign objects enter the jet intake on the underside of unit.
Do not reach into or place objects into jet intake. AquaDart’s internal propeller will cause serious injury. All repairs should be completed by an iAQUA trained technician in a workshop environment.
Only operate AquaDart when floating free and in sufficiently deep water. Point away from objects and other users.
Always start in a low gear (1 or 2) and sequentially increase the gears when moving. Starting in a high gear may cause injury or dislocation of shoulders and cause unnecessary wear on the internal drive system.
The waterjet outlet is very powerful and can cause severe injuries if pointed directly towards any bodily orifice or cavity. Normal swimwear may not protect against water being forced into orifices you’d rather not! Please take care that the jet outlet is directed underneath the operator and that protective clothing such as a wetsuit or skinsuit is worn.
AquaDart is capable of speeds that make it uncomfortable or impossible to see without using protective goggles underwater. Flat faced goggles such as conventional SCUBA masks will resonate at low speeds and may cause discomfort from drag.
Suggested use of a low volume and profiled mask such as a specialist free-diving mask.
Never operate AquaDart under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Familiarise yourself with the controls and handling of AquaDart before venturing into open water.
Judge your surroundings and operate AquaDart at a safe speed at all times. Learn to stop, handle and manoeuvre AquaDart proficiently in a closed environment such as a private swimming pool, before heading out to open water. Always ride within your limits of both speed and depth.
The direction and orientation of AquaDart is controlled by your body movement and requires thrust from the waterjet to manoeuvre.
AquaDart is a heavy object. Always lift unit in and out of the water, boats, cars etc with assistance. Recommend using the iAQUA trolley (available separately). If launching from beach, float the unit as soon as possible and pull out to water which is sufficiently deep to operate.
The maximum diving depth can be set using the main user interface (see AquaDart settings). When the vessel reaches the set depth limit propulsion will stop allowing the unit to float back into within the acceptable depth - at which point, after a short delay, propulsion will resume. Taking the unit beyond the maximum depth may damage the internal seals and will invalidate the warranty.
Freediving to 20m and beyond takes practise and training under supervision of trained professionals. Know your limits, extreme depths can cause disorientation and dizziness.
Please use AquaDart responsibly, respect the environment. Do not use AquaDart to pursue or harass wildlife. Please take care not to damage coral, seagrass or any natural habitats.
Hold on for the ride of your life!
Your AquaDart is powered by one of the most common and energy dense electrical power sources: Lithium-Ion batteries. The technology is used nearly across all electric drive trains on the market- from cars to sea scooters. While lithium ion can help attain the top speeds AquaDart is loved for and sustain those speeds for longer than any competing sea scooter on the market, it is important to bear the relevant safety in mind. And don’t worry, that’s exactly what our design does!
As you may have heard, lithium ion may become a danger if ever exposed to water. We take no risk and have created 2 superimposed methods of separation for the lithium cells from the outside, each individually pressure tested beyond our operational depth specification: glass-filled nylon caps with redundant O-ring sealing around both sides of the battery cylinder; With this level of superimposed waterproofing, we are very confident and cannot imagine any set of circumstances under which water could ever come in contact with the battery cells.
But that’s not good enough for us. So, if for unconceivable reason water does get through to the cells, your AquaDart is prepared. There are multiple electronic water sensors installed in different places inside the battery pack. As soon as water ingress is detected, the device performance will be limited to the Level 1 “Safety Mode” for 30min, to allow you to get to safety; the device will be inoperable after 30 minutes on “Safety Mode”; no recharging or use of the device would be possible;Under such extremely rare occurrence, keep the units out in the open air, away from flammable objects and contact your nearest iAQUA distributor or dealer to arrange replacement of the batteries, and this will bring your AquaDart back to life!
