    I believe so. It's a galvanic cell so the more O2 the quicker it's consumed. I've heard of folk flushing them with helium and putting them in a zip-loc bag which effectively puts the sensor to sleep....

    With any of these methods you really ought to breathe from the reg prior to diving so any reg that a diver has has been in their mouth at least once that day. I personally won't be changing my...

    I guess it was half in shot and half out of shot when that particular frame was taken and then it’d moved when they took the next frame.

    This isn’t going to be a single image but a composite of...

    See if your mate who already has a thriving business wants to franchise out. That way you can benefit from his local knowledge and contacts as well as the pre-existing customer-base/brand.

    Why don’t you ask your friend in Moalboal? They are surely in a better position to answer than anyone else.

    This is the issue. With one feature that might seem sensible you then have to implement another feature to ‘fix’ the issues raised by the first feature. Dive computers need to be simple to operate so...

    I think if you were designing these from scratch and you had the option then yes, a start averaging and stop averaging button would be sensible, it's then up to the user if they simply start the...

    OSTC computers have the whole-dive average (descent, bottom phase and ascent) as well as the stopped average (just bottom phase and ascent). Maybe a bottom time average would be beneficial but once...

    Correct, the only thing you are looking at from there is the depth (for the stops) and the time (you know when to move up).

    You work out your deco based on the bottom portion on the dive. You would have already decided your strategy before you started the ascent.

    What other skills do you have? Can you weld can you do structural survey, what are your demolition skills like? Commercial diving is more about doing the job underwater than being underwater itself....
