    Why Should I Join NAUI?

    I could have worded my question better, sorry about that. Is that "yes", they do not have annual fees? Or, yes, they do? And, is the insurance professional insurance, such as from V&B, or personal, such as through DAN?

    Why Should I Join NAUI?

    Does NAUI not have annual (or any?) fees to stay current as a Divemaster?

    Extremely BAD News: Dutch Springs likely closing permanently ...

    I believe that a number of IE's are done there. A group from Maine went down last fall.

    Somehow my tanks multiplied on me.

    I suppose $1000 might be the top of my "inexpensive" range. I suspect that the number of tanks and the quantity of dives would be factors in doing an economic analysis.

    Somehow my tanks multiplied on me.

    If this is in another thread, let me know, but are there small "personal" sized compressors? That are inexpensive? And, reliable? And, durable? Because I can't imagine ones the size a dive shop would have as being inexpensive enough (plus, space requirements) for somebody with a handful of...

    Hydro and +

    So, it's just a SCUBA industry standard? A dive shop could fill a tank that had been hydro'd, without a current VIP sticker?

    Hydro and +

    Boboqa- it's a regional company, maineoxy.com. I found them on the DOT website listed as somebody who does hydro's. They said they do lots of SCUBA tanks, though they seemed unfamiliar with the VIP program. I figured if they could do the hydro, then my LDS could do the VIP.

    Hydro and +

    This particular tank has the REE stamped on it. I found a source for future "plus" ratings, if my LDS still refuses.

    Hydro and +

    There seems to be some confusion in the field of hydro's and "+" ratings. My local dive shop is certified to do hydro's, but claims that it takes a special certificate/credential/rating/permission (or something) to do the "+" ratings. I called DOT, and they refuse to put anything in writing...

    low pressure, medium pressure, high pressure cylinders and valves for each

    Speaking of valves- are there valve covers that fit the pro/converter valves? The standard ones seem to be quite tight.

    low pressure, medium pressure, high pressure cylinders and valves for each

    Hi! I thought I had read (not sure where, at the moment) that 3500 psi was the cut off, at and above which cylinders become "high pressure", and require a DIN type valve. I believe I have seen tanks marketed at 34XX psi with yoke valves, perhaps as 'medium pressure'? And, there are low...

    "pro" (combination) tank valves

    Interesting. So, why would they continue to make and sell ones with a crush washer, if they can be so problematic? I am learning more about valves. Thanks! If these don't work well, I can trade back the old valves, or look into other options like the DGX.
