Here is an exerpt from the
Aqualung Pearl i3 owners Manual  which is a good example of what is reccomended by most manufacturers:

WARNING: DO NOT attempt to perform any disassembly or service of your BC. Service requiring disassembly must only be performed by a factory-trained Aqua Lung® technician. To obtain service or repair, such as power inflator service or replacement of the bladder, see your local authorized dealer.

1. It cannot be assumed that the BC is in good working order on the basis that it has received little use since it was last serviced. Remember that prolonged or improper storage can still result in internal corrosion and/or deterioration of o-ring seals and valve springs, as well as bladder seam degradation.


2. It is imperative that you obtain prescribed dealer service for your BC at least once a year from an authorized dealer, including a general air leak inspection and complete overhaul of the i3 Control Unit and Flat E-Valve. Your BC may require this service more frequently, depending on the amount of use it receives and the environmental conditions it is used in.


3. If the BC is used for rental or training purposes in salt, chlorinated, or silted fresh water, it will require prescribed dealer service every three to six months. Use in chlorinated water will greatly accelerate the deterioration of most components, and require more frequent service.


4. DO NOT attempt to perform any disassembly or overhaul service of your BC. Doing so may cause the BC to dangerously malfunction, and will render the warranty null and void. All service must be performed by an authorized Aqua Lung® Dealer

->IT IS IMPORTANT TO OBTAIN PRESCRIBED DEALER SERVICE FOR YOUR BC AT LEAST ONCE ANNUALLY, FROM AN AUTHORIZED AQUA LUNG® DEALER. YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND THE MECHANICAL INTEGRITY OF YOUR BC DEPEND ON IT.
