BLU3 issued a recall on December 22, 2022 for approximately 1,300 units of the Nomad Battery-Powered Tankless Diving System. The diving system’s compressor head may fracture, which can restrict the diver’s air flow and put them at risk of drowning. The recall affects diving systems with model numbers ending in 0000 to 2700, which can be located behind the battery door.
Customers have been advised to stop using the tankless systems immediately and to contact the manufacturer to verify that their item is part of the recall. If so, BLU3 is offering a free repair service at an authorized repair center.
If you or someone you know was injured by this product, you are entitled to much more than a free repair appointment. Based on your physical and mental injuries, you have a claim for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other monetary damages.

Tragically, unintentional drownings account for around 4,000 deaths every year in the U.S., according to the CDC.

What to Do After a Diving Accident
As you can see from the list of potential injuries, these are extremely serious accident, so you must see a doctor right away if you suffered respiratory distress or a drowning incident due to a BLU3 Tankless Diving System. Other steps you should take include:
- Make sure to take photos of any visible injuries, like cuts and abrasions.
- If anyone witnessed what happened to you, get their contact info so that your lawyer can call them for a statement.
- Contact the manufacturer to report your accident, but don’t give a recorded statement or agree to schedule a free repair service.
- Collect any evidence to support your right to compensation, such as medical records, proof of lost wages, and witness statements.
- Consult an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your rights and legal options.
