WASHINGTON, April 19 (UPI) -- Chatsworth, Calif. company Trident Diving Equipment is recalling high-pressure scuba air hoses due to potential leaks, regulators said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said 200 air hoses were involved in the recall.

The hoses are meant to connect regulators to the air tank pressure gauge. But the company has received one report of a leaking hose, which could pose a drowning threat to scuba divers, the agency said.

The phrase, "Scuba Diving High Pressure hose I.D. 3/16 (4.76 mm) W.P. 5000 PSI Exceeds SAE 100RT braid with Kevlar fiber from Dupont," is printed on the hose's outside cover in white lettering.

The hoses have metal fittings -- one female, one male -- at either end.

They were sold from November 2011 through June 2012 for about $35.

Consumers were advised to stop using the hoses and contact Trident Diving Equipment for a free replacement.

Consumers can call 800-234-3483 for information.
