    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    lol Im glad you got that off your chest :) yes i agree you need a second decompression monitor as a 'standard' set up to call it redundant in that sense. I havent really dived on other breathers (other than try dives -dont think that counts) so its hard to compare but i think in any ccr the...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    I have a hybrid mini- My controller died on a dive and i finished the dive using my (then dreams) and on manual. Wouldnt you consider that redundancy ? edit- sorry i should have said now i have added a nerd

    back to the OP - and if you get a ccr you be able to join in all these fruitful discussions

    Anxious at safety stop

    if it was me and it was stopping me enjoying my diving id shoot an dsmb and hang on it it will help you feel a lot more secure and you might start to relax and work on your anxiety. if you r happy at 5m on or near a shelf it sounds like you are struggling with visual references -have you had any...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    I was teasing really:p actually i think the back mounted BO ccr combo looks amazing and id use it if it was option, however i couldn't get through places i want to go with that set up. and as an aside i stopped using twins because I have a shoulder injury and cant reach the valves easily

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    its sounds like a reasonable argument if you assume all divers follow the same path - i tried twins ( about 15 dives) and didn't like them so went to sidemount so using your muscle memory logic I should have my BO mounted on the side

    Distance from compressor to tanks - does it make a difference in speed of fill?

    cant see how this is the case -once a line is filled with the correct pressure then its the same but obviously itll take a fraction longer to reach that pressure in a long line- if you're doing short fills then releasing all the pressure in that line and then reconnecting and rebuilding pressure...

    Warm water - dry vs wet

    im not sure but i think the flex 190 comes with and without the heating element? -i have the heated version and with that they recommend another layer between the skin and the suit so its pretty warm even without the battery pack -personally i think it will be too warm for 25 plus degrees and...

    Buoyancy with drysuit?

    seeing as you already have some time using a BCD from wearing a wet suit id continue to do that and add just enough air in your dry suit to avoid squeeze -Youll need to experiment a little with weights depending on your undergarment but id recommend using your bcd as your primary buoyancy aid...

    Hog wrapping a bail out hose under a loop on a rebreather.

    i have to confess i dont do an S drill- i pre -breathe reg /check SPG of my BO gas on the boat and do bubble check at suitable spot on the down line and thats pretty much it I usually carry 2 x 6 litre BO one with a short hose on necklace (for me) and the other is a longer hose ( for them)...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    if your going to to do 2x 50-60 m dive with 40-50 min of bottom time then youll be starting with fresh sorb yes? ive attached the Revo info sheet fro sorb changes- depending on depth and water temp you can get 2-3 hours from a canister

    maybe - you still have 2 cells on your nerd to cross check your PO2 on the controller

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    yes bikini is a good example mod 2 territory without getting a mortgage to pay for helium -and depending on where you dive youll need to negotiate run times if you have OC divers on board - our dive group all tend to dive together with ccr so when we charter or plan a trip we make sure we can do...

    Where should I start to approach the rebreather world

    i dont think trying to justify a ccr for cost savings is the main focus - get a ccr because theyre awesome! if you are the sort of person who doesn't like to tinker or spend time checking over your equipment, then ccr is probably not for you. They demand attention both in and out of the water...

    strange stuff on valve

    just heard back from a tank specialist - hes seen it 2-3 time and reckons its moisture left in tank from last hydro causing microscopic rust particles that have gathered around the valve from crystal lube or hand grease tank hasn't been used fro 2-3 months inside of the tank is clean, stuff...
