    Ive been trying to find caves to dive a little shorter drive from home. I live in ohio and usually go to florida. Is anyone aware of a good area that has a couple nice caves to spend a few days at? Maybe georgia? Google showed me radium springs but thats about all im finding as of yet.

    How old of regs would you use?

    I know that many regs can be serviced and used for decades as personal regs, but what about professional use? Our dive team regs are 20 year old aqualung glacia’s. They can still be serviced so we still use them. They have the larger diameter primary reg lp port and seem to have problems...

    Aga ffm or other options for dive team??

    I am on a psd team that is in need of new equipment. Years ago we were gifted a few aga masks with coms. Now we are looking at getting more ffm’s for more team members and better size options. (I personally have to REALLY crank down the straps to get seal). I’ve noticed a lot of good reviews...

    underwater geocaching? ohio?

    I know scuba geocaching is a thing but i wonder; do divers generally use latitude and longitude of the excact site, or once at the dive site do the clues usually give more of a heading and distance from entry point? I cant find information on any caches in the quarries near me and was thinking...

    Topping off nitrox to get a desired mix

    So i have some doubles that have 32% and only 1300psi left. I can fill air for free at my fire dept. So I usually just top off then check O2 if i dont need another nitrox fill. However this week im planning a dive that would be ideal to have 29% and doesnt need that many cubic feet, so i...

    what valve do i need?

    I recently obtained a steel 72 off ebay. it came with current viz and hydro, but the brand new xs scuba valve was only partway in and had pipe tape sealing it (with very slow leak). on further inspection it was not the standard 1" valve threads that my other tanks have. though it measures...

    ppO2 for nitrox, why so low?

    I was parusing some information about oxygen toxicity the other day and came upon this graph: 3-6 hours at 2.0 I have been using tables that set limits based on 1.4 and even my dive computer only allows conservency settings to go as high as 1.6. However for average days of diving at deeper...
