1. Find out if the service kits are available on line for your model first. Work out the total cost for a complete set.
2. How much would the shop charge for a complete set serviced.

Well I found the mfg kits 4000-9 for the octo for $9 and the 1st and second stage kit 4000-15 for $20 new. I know for car mechanics you can bring your own stuff. Wondering if a repair place would do that as well? How much more do the repair places usually charge for parts?
If costs are such an issue do the job yourself. When I owned a shop and if someone did this I probably would not accept the job. As stated parts can be free with Sherwood when warranty rules are followed.

No, I just make my own burgers, and they are quite a bit better than anything at McDonalds. So far nobody in the restaurant business has told me I'm risking my life by cooking my own food. :)

And you miss the point. A Parts profit is something that is an aspect of an overall business plan. Customers bringing their own parts means overall profit margins are not where they need to be to make staying in business worthwhile.
There is a 2nd aspect also, and this applies to Automotive parts as well, that needs to be considered by the Business. If, IF, one of the parts that a Customer provides fails then they will be on the hook legally for any damages/injury/warranty. They would be considered the experts and by accepting Customer provided parts they are saying the parts provided are proper/good/acceptable....all while making no profit on said parts.

For reference, I own an Automotive Repair Shop, and if I accept a customer provided part I have to honor my 3yr/36k warranty on that part. So, if a Customer buys a cheap starter of Amazon, and it fails in 6 months, I am required to replace the starter for free. No charge for Labor or replacement Part. If a Customer Provided Brake Master cylinder part fails and there is an accident any injury/damage falls on me also.

Why would I accept customer provided parts with the added liability and loss of profit? Answer is I don't and most reputable Shops don't either.

Same goes for Scuba parts kits, etc.

As one of my Parts Vendors Sales reps said so perfectly. Our store list prices and any internet prices are the "Do it yourself" price. If the customer wants that cheaper price then they should do the work themselves not bring it to you...the person that has to pay rent, insurance, property taxes, payroll, hazardous disposal fees, etc.

And you miss the point.

I don't think so. All I said is that I don't go to McDonalds, I cook my own burgers. Nowhere in my reply did I offer any opinion about scuba shops accepting customer parts. I'm not sure why you felt the need to explain that bit to me.

In fact, your last paragraph has this statement: "If the customer wants that cheaper price then they should do the work themselves not bring it to you." Which is pretty much the sentiment of my somewhat tongue-in-cheek reply, so I think we're in agreement on that.

Quite the list! However, even is those numbers, there are different materials, and hardness (duro) that should be considered....

DIY on servicing regs is NOT common.
I won't be surprised if it is less than 5%.
