    Yeah, I guess it also depend what the surgeon would need to do. If it is something fairly minor and Dr say everything should be fine to try diving once I can put weight on it a couple weeks after the surgery or it could be more major and Dr might not want me to try diving till everything is...

    sadly my insurance doesn't physical therapy now that I am over 20. Even if I need something as big as a total knee replacement they cover it fully but therapy that could have prevented the need for surgery in the first play I am on my own with that. I do have some exercises my primary doctor...

    Hi guys, been a while. So my sister and I were going to see about doing a Discover SCUBA thing here on a couple week, but I injured my right knee and it looking more than likely that will be having some type of knee surgery on it. Anyone know who long after my surgery till my sister and I can...

    Looking through The Playground's Facebook they sometimes have free gear sales, they had a deal for Black Friday where if you bought a reg, octo, BC, and SPG you got a free wrist computer. They have various sales throughout the year. Even if I don't get the octo itself for free I might still be...

    I have full use of both hands, my issue is with both my legs. Yeah that is something to consider if I need to spend like a few hundred more on a higher end bc with better accessible dumb valves that are more conducive to using an AIR2 I might be better off getting a normal octo. SP don't...

    Oh I had no idea that SP needed different mouth pieces, that is good to know. Do you know if they have any ones that will work in green (my favorite color) I think we might go with Miflex hoses where we can to save some weight and be able to pack them down tighter. Does Atomic offer left handed/...

    Fair enough. I would imagine by now you would be able to control your bc if you that to use the AIR2 in an emergency even if you have to use a value on the bc itself to release air, but I will be sure to ask. As far as being too close, my sister wants pink houses on her regulator setup so if we...

    Do you guys have any thoughts on the SCUBAPRO AIR2? Looking though The Playground's BCs they have AIR2s preattached for $120 more, but their cheapest octo is the R095 for $158.

    So question about gear storage; My sister and I were planning on storing our gear in the garage to keep the cats from messing with it, but it not climate controlled (no heat or AC) will the gear be fine?

    They might have had retactors, I might have just not known what I was looking at. Worst case we can always get a clip and clip it to our BCs.

    Yeah I am thinking this might be a decent starting point, they have one without a compass but at the same time it is never a bad idea to have a compass available just in case. Right now I am not too interested in Nitrox, so this computer not having settings for it is no big loss for me. Do...

    I am interested in learning to Dive, but I am landlocked and I have physical disabilities

    Yeah if i recall most modern computers don't need to be recalibrated if you just change the battery, at worst you might just need to change your depth setting back and you might lose whatever logs were on it. I showed my sister the Mares Puck Pro and she said she is not a fan of large watches on...

    Service Here is The Playground's service prices, I think $75 might be a bit much for a battery replacement but that is just me After the Discover SCUBA thing I will try and see if I can get a hold of any shops in the area. Computer, gages, and maybe Regs we could get online if we really...

    Good to know they last a while and are supported a long time by their companies, I am a computer and stuff here has a usable life of maybe 8-9 years if you got something super high end at the time and if something breaks after a couple years good luck getting parts. I think SP offers a parts...
