    that gear is used for. Servicing for regulators varies on the brand and type of equipment, so making sure the technician knows if it will be used on a close-circuit rebreather could have prevented an irregular pressure setting. It is always best before diving to double check your apparatus and check your line pressures to make sure they are compatible with your brand of equipment.

    The second function of the ADV is provide a simple means to verify the accuracy of the oxygen sensors during a dive. As mentioned in the Set up chapter, oxygen sensors are unreliable and your best defense is to check them frequently. Additionally, during the course of a dive, every time the ADV triggers the […]
