    As an aside, I think I disagree with Tel's "logic". He's just outlined a worst case scenario where you end up CBL'ing a diver to the surface. Fair enough, anything more than 1m in that case is...

    I'll fight anyone who says DS4's are not preferable for a twinset. They're only not preferable if you're disregarding the involved.

    You're not trying to "pressurise your ears". This has been mentioned numerous times over the last 13 pages.

    On the same phone? No. You can't connect the phone to the hotspot that it's creating itself.

    You could connect the phone and the chromecast to the hotspot created by a third phone.

    I'm a big fan of the Halton. Never done Scapa on it though. If Bob is up there at the time of the year you want to go, then it should be reasonably high up the list

    I also have the sitech system. Didn't realise Waterproof made one.

    It looks like the older version of the sitech. I could be wrong about that though.

    Short answer: Yes.

    Your volume remains constant. The density of the water you displace changes. Therefore, your bouyant force changes

    2.5% of your fully kitted up mass will do the job.

    It's been to the manufacturer twice (who have been doing repairs) and the dive shop 4 times. You still claim it's leaking... It's faulty.

    The cylinders are wide spaced which means the manifold is the same as you'll find on a standard 12L twinset (171mm I believe). That's good as they're pretty common.
