    Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.

    Flood caused by the scrubber tube becoming oval. Iíd noticed it becoming harder and harder to put on after filling the scrubber but didnít twig why.

    A new tube fixed the problem, but afterwards I also used inner tube over the top and bottom joins on the scrubber canister as belt and braces.

    Seriously:

    1. Badly fitted seacure mouthpiece.... got back out and fixed in about 5 mins with some silicone and a whipping.
    2. O2 Injection leak, carried on the dive with regular dil flushing....but bailout was close
    3. a "friend' dicked about with his o2 valve when the skipper screwed up shotting, then jumped in with it turned off...along with the dil...and 2 bailouts...and a suit bottle. What a prat that 'friend' was

    Slow leak through the mouthpiece and the loop went a bit CO2. I think it was after 50min or so, so a decent amount of water probably got in.

    Dicking about practicing bailouts, swapping between BOV and a reg over and over. On one bailout I forgot to close the DSV, swapped back on the loop, took a few breaths and then the CO2 went sky high.

    Can't think of any others.

    Split in the mouthpiece gradualy flooded the unit. All good till I went head down to retrieve the main line reel and got a gob full of caustic liquid in a cave

    Bailed to OC via BOV and rinsed my mouth out but it was nasty
