Diving Hacks – Part 1

Over the course of the coming weeks. Some of our blogs will revolve around Diving Hacks, whether they help you in a sticky situation or just for your own knowledge, these tips and little tricks are definitely worth looking into.

1  – using your wedding band \ ring to alert for help by banging it onto your cylinder is a great way to signal your buddy underwater

2 – use inexpensive S Hooks to hang your wet gear \ towels for them to dry quicker. Just hang it on the bathroom door or shower.

3 – buying carpet shampoo to take the stink out of your wetsuit for when you pee in it….even though no one admits it! It´s a good way of covering your tracks 😉

4 – how about using your scuba mask to chop onions for dinner? It will stop the pesky fumes that make you cry from getting into your eyes and nose.

5 – need to remove an O-ring from a tank but have no tools? Don´t fret….there´s another way. Just turn off the cylinder, purge the reg out approx 500 to 700 psi and undo the yoke screw. The O-Ring will fall out after you hear a pop.

6 – use a magic eraser to clean dive slate. And yes, this also works underwater. Cut up smaller pieces of eraser and put them in your accessory pocket
