    Question Mount bailout tank with OTS lungs

    Hi, I need some tips on how to mount bailout tanks when diving over the soulder counterlungs. If using a normal D-ring on the harness, the counterlungs will cover the D-ring and it will be impossible to access the D-ring. Especially when diving in cold waters with drysuit and dry gloves. Now...

    Pre-breathing procedure

    Hi all, I am trying to understand in detail the sequence of pre-breathing actions and their reason. Acknowledging that pre-breathing has been proven ineffective for hypercapnia prevention (article from @Dr Simon Mitchell in 2015; also discussed at length here Does Pre-breathing Your Rebreather...

    Loop wraps — functional or fashion?

    I see many CCR divers wrapping their loops with cordura covers. Are these just for the looks or do they have a functional reason?

    Underwater off-gassing equivalent to a surface interval on air

    As I study to get ready for the CCR class, I discovered something that may be obvious to many but was definitely not to me. “Surface intervals are not always the most efficient way to off-gas nitrogen after a dive”. Depending on the blend, there is an optimal depth at which the off-gassing is...

    South Florida: which CCR do you dive?

    Very curious which rebreathers divers in south Florida are using. I'm sure northern Florida is dominated by cavers, but what about here in the south? Would love to hear not just the make/model, but also the type of diving you use it for, why you initially chose it, what features you like/don't...

    South Florida Rebreather (CCR) Groups/Buddies/Dive trips?

    As the title states, I'm interested in learning about local community/group for CCR divers. I'm very interested in converting, but need to find buddies, information, etc. I mostly dive out of Pompano. I'm not even sure where to start. I'd like to know what units others dive in the area. I see...

    Manually voting out bad cells with Shearwater

    TL;DR: Shearwater should allow us to manually vote cells; why not? Howdy folks, If we track mV or if Shearwater does it for us, should we not be able to to identify bad cells and vote them out? There are at least several ways of accomplishing that. First, there is a pure manual way. You...

    Does anyone have any experience with the CCR training at Honolulu Scuba Company (HSC) here on Oahu? Particularly on a Se7en?

    CCR Selection priorities

    There have been plenty of "how to choose a rebreather" or "help me choose my first rebreather" type threads over the years, with a couple of great discussions happening recently. So I decided to be completely redundant and start yet another one with what I've deemed some of the most important...
