It is recommended that your PFD is serviced to the manufacturer's specifications which is usually either one or two years. Ideally this should be done by an authorised PFD servicing agent. The are many things that will cause your yachting PFD to fail inspection. The most common of these are;
- corrosion on cylinders
- damage to webbing
- damage to bladder
- oral inflation tube valve not functioning
- loss of green indicator tab
- heavy mould
