    A (stupid) gas blending question

    No energy driving the gases to "blend" = static values. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest unless a force drives them.

    Why did I get a CO reading?

    I agree with Rjack. The co came out of suspension in the adsorbant and that is probably why you saw the spike. What filters are you using?

    Flex Seal glue trilam drysuit

    Not really a good idea. I have had several suits come in for repair that had flex seal attempts at DIY repair. I have had issues getting other adhesives to stick in areas where the flex seal was used. My suggestion is to fix it correctly the first time.

    Deep 6 1st stage IP adjustment: Down after seat set?

    1st.. You cannot use specs from deep 6 for a Poseidon. You are over analyzing an issue. maybe you should take the regs to someone who has an idea of what to do. Unless these are regs you are just playing with to learn on.

    Trimix stick

    Enough baffles that the analyzed mix after stick is similar to after compression... it is science you are dwelling in. There is probably math to calc it out, but that would be engineering. I usually use rule of thumb. Same mix out as in and minimal restriction. If the math eludes you as it does...

    Phosphoric acid w/ Blue Gold for reg cleaning

    I usually use a bit of store shelf vinegar for corrosion, Simple green for cleaning. I have found that if the corrosion on a reg requires alot of work to remove it, the reg probably will have issues due to the removal of plating. Orings etc don't like to do the job in those environments.

    SPG on Pony Bottle?

    When I dive single tank, I use a back mount 40. No gauge. I check the pressure prior to mounting the reg. I really don't need to know what is in the tank if I have to resort to it. The dive is over and I am heading up. I also don't dive single tanks deeper than 70 or 80 ft. I see a button gauge...

    Tank Tumbling Help

    I always finish any tank servicing with a good wash with simplegreen and hot water, followed by ample rinsing in hot water.
