Re: Just got my reg overhauled......

Underwater Sports. I had googled the costs, and found people were paying anywhere from 50 bucks to 100, but I never saw anyone pay almost 150.....

Just got my reg overhauled......

And the price was more than I had expected. 141 dollars. Is this usual? They charged me 78 dollars labor (even though they didnt start working on it until the third week they had it), the rest in parts. Regulator is a Mares MR12 first stage, mares prestige and rover second stage.

Re: Backup light issues

Thanks for the replies guys, will do. +1 Just untwist it a bit more. It's the pressure at depth that turns it on. I have had this issue with this specific light and other twist on lights. Certainly nothing uncommon and nothing an attentive buddy can't fix for you Funny you should mention this, Ive h...

Backup light issues

I have a DRIS 1000 lumen dive light as a back up light (m), sorry long link. Anyways it has a twist on/off function, and on two or three occasions it has come on by itself at depth. These flashlights dont twist on/off too easily so I doubt its rubbing againt something causing it to turn on. Anyone e...

Re: Drysuit weighting

Running the suit 10 clicks open, you don't want to feel any squeeze at depth. Or like I told you, run it closed, and open on ascent, but that's more tricky. Those valves still reverse flow if you run them squeezed. Next dive ill put a bit more air in the suit, and close the deflator a click or two ...

Re: Drysuit weighting

Put plastic drinking cups in the wrist seals and a gallon pitcher in the neck seal, blow it up and spray it with soapy water. Sometimes the inflator valve or exhaust valve are not attached tightly enough. I've found a little silicone grease, not cement, on the surfaces lets them tighten down nicely...

Re: Drysuit weighting

It's also possible that your inflator valve was letting water in as you added air. Glad to hear the dive went well! Would this indicate a defective inflator, or one that needs to be tightened or something else? I also had Jeff at TL Sea check the seal tightness at the wrists and neck and he said th...

Re: Drysuit weighting

The dive went well! But I came up wet in the chest and legs. Had the suit checked, and no leaks there, so maybe a folded neck seal or something. It was wayyyy easier than I expected it would be. I was using my suit for squeeze and my BC for buoyancy, was able to stay in trim the whole time! I did hi...

Very different garments


Its the Whites Glacier Series MK2. Maybe "onesie" is a better term for it?
