    Question Getting tested for CoVid in Toronto

    Nope. Totally different. I've been brain scraped about 20 times since March. Most were PCR but some were rapid antigen .Both nostils every time, except the one lab in Calgary that did throat swabs.

    Buying a compressor to save money

    Generally FD compressors are maintained as good as, or better than, compressors out in the wild in divers' care.

    Question How to check an analyser O2 cell?

    I agree completely that it's fun to muck around. I do it all the time. But I buy a new sensor first then muck around with the old one.

    It's 15 months old. Just replace the effing thing and quit mucking around.

    Try and make sense of the restrictions that the US govt has on Canadians trying to drive and get into the US from Canada . Twice this summer I had to drive to Vancouver from Cranbrook (an 8 hour drive to the west), hire a company to drive my vehicle across from Van to Bellingham and charter a...

    Exploration Diving

    A bit of background and thoughts - It was never a goal of mine to become a member of the Explorers Club. It was after many years and many trips to many remote places that I realized that I had done some shift and probably qualified. And I did. I don't understand why people would do exploration...

    First open water dives with rebreather...

    I'm surprised at the amount of comments along the line of "Yeah it kicked my butt hard. Had to start all over...blah...blah...blah". Sure there was a transition for me but it wasn't that effing bad. Makes me think that most didn't have their basic skills down in the first place.

    Opinions on helium testers wanted.

    Still, no where does it say that measuring for He content is not important.

    calibrating on multiple days diving

    Your experience may be typical for your work place however don't try and extend it outside of that environment. I worked in a lab that had to meet ISO17025 (if we are going to name drop standards). Some of our instruments had to be calibrated annually, some monthly, some had to be calibrated...

    Looking to Buy a Rebreather

    I didn't write it nor submit it so I'm not sure. If it doesn't show up in the next couple of issues I'll post my experience here. See above. I'm not keeping it to myself, I've been very open in what happened, just not here on S'Board (for no particular reason). I've shared my story with many...

    Looking to Buy a Rebreather

    No shoot Sherlock. I was there. I know exactly what went down. I was diving a KISS classic that day. i had 3 or 4 things go sideways on the dive. most of which are unique to an mccr. Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you. I got lucky.

    Yup. In a perfect world that would work. Until it doesn't. As I found out.

    Looking to Buy a Rebreather

    I didn't say I went from 1.3 to hypoxic. I went from normoxic to hypoxic in 90 seconds. There is a difference.

    I believe it will be in a future issue of Alert Diver.

    Looking to Buy a Rebreather

    Nope. It's very easy to actually get a hypoxic mix on an mCCR. All it takes is 90 seconds of inattention after 12 years of experience to make it happen.
