It is essential to get into the water prior to a trip. I don't mean the week before you leave either. If you are spending good money on a vacation you need to spend a little time a few months in advance to try your old gear out and see if all systems are solid.
Buckeye's pool parties the 3rd Wednesday of each month from December to May are excellent, inexpensive ways to check out that gear and keep those skills fresh.
When it is time to replace a piece of gear it usually only means one or two and not replacing the entire SCUBA system.
If you have gear that needs to be replaced, call Buckeye and schedule an evaluation with Scuba Steve. This is the perfect way to make your next holiday the BEST it can by not having pesky equipment malfunctions and most importantly being safe and comfortable in the water.
