My guess the algorhythm is continous... so you can drift between 30 ft and 10 ft and it will continue to subtract from the deco timer...

Just dont do deco when you are not qualified to do so.My guess the algorhythm is continous... so you can drift between 30 ft and 10 ft and it will continue to subtract from the deco timer...
With a 38min ceiling at 3m you shoukd have deco at deeper depthsNever had.. and never will...
over 320 dives and never had obligatory deco once.... But if it did happen... the 10 ... 2 thing will now not confuse me..
it will simply go 10 2.... then 10 3... and up and up to 10 38
Wish the mare's book would explain it easier..
And occasionally... there will be a half depth deco... if you are still early in the deco requirement

Deco is deco. No matter the algorithm depth or time i can not get a dive to plan me 38min at 3m without giving me additional deco deeper. Please read up on deco theory and understand why what you are saying is bollocksActually not...
That was what surprised me...
The deeper depth was only required for shorter deco time... I believe it was like only 10 ... 2 min..
The 10 ft 38 min was my third dive testing the computer.. I think, like the article said... there is compensation for lack of air and maximizing the deco ability of what a recreational diver carried... 80 cf vs 160 or more for doubles with technical diver.... where you have the luxury of doing the half depth deco... up to the surface
What you are writing is complete crap. If someone believes you they will end up hurt.That is why I think deco on recreational dives factors in SAC (or poor SAC) and small air supply (80cu ft)..... Where as technical computers like the perdix... have two different mode - tech vs rec.... that probably factor in single small tank for rec mode.
And it might skip the deeper deco stop for the sake of maximizing benefit to the diver. Understanding that not all components would gas off as efficiently at 9 m than deeper...
