    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    Yelp? Really? I'm not talking about instructors. I completely agree that an experience with a particular class or instructor should NOT be conflated with the parent organization. However, the way certain agencies approach their respective business models varies wildly as does their execution of...

    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    But...why? Where else are divers going to get honest opinions of businesses they choose to give their money to?

    My (lengthy) Review of my Helitrox Deco CCR Course on the Choptima

    Agreed. Like Lamar says, if you think you need to adjust it 1/4 turn - go half that. It doesn't take much, however the ADV firing when it shouldn't and shutting it off to prevent this can also lead to issues if the diver is task loaded and forgot they shut the ADV off, especially on a unit like...

    Isobaric Counter Diffusion (ICD)

    Couldn't agree more. Shearwater added it with separate baselines for oc/cc.

    My (lengthy) Review of my Helitrox Deco CCR Course on the Choptima

    Sure, just let me know if you need any help with it. FYI, it's a 3/16" hex to adjust the orifice but the cap I think is metric for some reason.

    My (lengthy) Review of my Helitrox Deco CCR Course on the Choptima

    @OP The ADV on the chop is just a demand valve regulator, just like your standard 2nd stage, and can be adjusted so that it only fires when you pull a decent negative. Mine was the same out of box - 1/8 of a turn later and it was solid.

    Average lifespan of aluminum cylinder

    What he said. And if it makes you feel any better, our phmsa trainer said in all reality, a cylinder will fail a visual before it fails a hydro.

    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    Ok, so this whole issue has become something of a strawman. I agree, pre-ordering certs is irrelevant, however of interest to me was that the only people who received certs were people who could potentially testify for or against Snow and company. Maybe they did pre-order them and maybe they did...

    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    So, plenty of time for the instructor to cancel them? And like I said, logic would dictate that they would've done the same for Bob and Linnea and they'd have certs, too. I don't think it's disingenuous to assume that someone who has show a pattern of gross negligence and with questionable...

    Suit filed in case of "Girl dead, boy injured at Glacier National Park

    That would imply that the other "students" Bob and Linnea would be issued certs as well, correct? The suit specifically states that "In the weeks and months AFTER....PADI issued". This implies that they weren't pre-ordered, especially adding "months" to the statement.

    Boat explosion - Cozumel

    Not necessarily. If the tank is sitting against something like a wall or the bed of a truck it will absolutely go off like a rocket. Watched one literally fly up out of a truck bed and land 5 feet away.
