After cleaning my BCD´s bladder I always keep my dump valves screwed off to let it dry inside. Should I store my BCD with the valves screwed on or off? Thanks for the amazing videos and safe diving!

I'm leaning towards going with a Pelican case. Thoughts? Cheers from Canada.

I would like some thought on improving finger-dexterity with gloves in 10 degrees C or below.
– I’m having trouble refitting my mask and disconnecting the drysuit hose using 5mm gloves.

#scubaQuestion
Is it worth it buying an old air integrated dive computer….. as in 2008-10
– I guess maybe a review on old computers….. pro cons…. Best and absolute worst….. transmitter compatibility…

Thanks for all your inspiration

Hi Mark!
Suunto D5 or EON Core?
almost the same price, and I don't really care about the size or some kind of smartwatch features. You can also hear a lot about battery life of D5… Which would be better to choose? I'm thinking that maybe one day go further for a tec diver.

Hi Mark. While I’m a recreational diver, I’m interested in long hose setups (I like the idea of having just enough hose length to keep panicky divers at distance while donating air). What are your thoughts on having both primary and secondary second stages on long hoses? I know you yourself donate the second stage on the longest hose in both Rec./DIR setups, but my worry is also situations where panicked divers could swim up and rip the second stage either from my BCD reg. holder or even out of my mouth. Would this be overkill? Otherwise, how would you solve hose routing issues for streamlining? What about routing so if either reg. is taken the hose easily comes completely free without being tangled in the other hose? Love the informative and educational videos you do!

There are two typical scenarios when another diver has run out of air. They’re either calm and collected or panicking. If they’re calm, then you simply donate your long hose primary and they can breathe again.

If they’re panicking then many divers instinctively grab for the 2nd stage in your mouth. Which has the same outcome.

Two long hoses from a single cylinder will just lead to hose routing issues and tangles. So, I’d stick to a single long hose. If you’re diving with sidemounted tanks you can have more long hoses and route the hoses down the body as an alternative.

I bought a used transmitter and Aqualung I770R computer. The PSI read out appears to be low by about 180 psi. Can I recalibrate the transmitter or computer to fix this? Will a new transmitter correct this?

I don’t believe you can calibrate a transmitter but I’ll ask AquaLung.
The usual issues are: Faulty Sensor or Paired to Another Transmitter

it’s unlikely to be paired to another transmitter so, a new transmitter is probably your best option. I’ll let you know what AquaLung say…

#AskMark Hi Mark, I’m looking for my first drysuit and i’m very interested in the Avatar 101. Would you recommend that one for diving in Europe (Germany)? How is the quality? Or do you think there are better alternatives in this price range out there? Thanks for answering and safe diving 🙂

I really liked the Avatar Drysuit. It’s basically a Santi Drysuit with a smaller price tag.

Build quality is excellent, the materials are strong and light and it has decent pockets on the thighs. Yes, I recommend the Avatar 101

#askmark: if after a dive I realize I can’t make the 2nd dive (cold, feeling weak, back pain, etc…), can I still join my friends by freediving above them? Fab’, Dubai.

I’d avoid going back into the water if you’re experiencing cold, fatigue or back pain for your safety. If you’re not feeling well enough to go on a dive then it’s best to stay out of the water completely until you feel better and notify the guide and crew of your symptoms so they can act appropriately.

Even if you are feeling good it’s not advised to go freediving after scuba diving. Because you still have dissolved gases in your body, the rapid descent and ascent of a freedive can release some of those trapped gases too quickly.

The current guidelines are to avoid freediving for 12hrs after a single dive and 18hrs after multiple dives.

I have 3 basic questions, heard different opinions about these

1. Do we need to keep the purge valve pressed when opening the tank valve? I was not taught this nor I had ever seen this before, till I saw some people do it on a boat. When asked, they said they were taught this to protect the regulators.

2. While swimming on the surface against current and in full gear, is it better to be on your back or have your face in the water?

3. For a boat entry, I was taught to inflate the bcd in the water. I never thought to question this during the course, but in some boats I was told to inflate first and then get in. Which is better? Does it depend on the type of entry i.e. stride or back roll?

1. It’s relatively new and not very common yet. But, holding the purge button can help reduce any sudden pressure shock on the moving parts and sealing surfaces of your regulator and it’s generally recommended now.

2. I tend to swim on my side on the surface so that my fins never leave the water for maximum efficiency. But, most of my surface swimming is done on my back with a frog kick.

3. It’s better to inflate first in my opinion. If, while repositioning you fall, bang your head and end up in the water. At least you’ll float for others to rescue you. I was taught with a story of a diver who made a negative entry with their tank turned off and had to swim hard to get back to the surface. My BCD is only empty when I’m on dry land or a working regulator is in my mouth

just a suggestion.
your videos are multiple question and answer on different topics in the same video but the title shows up as “Best Cold Water Glove Choice?” so i may not watch it if i’m not interested in Best Cold Water Glove Choice?.
i’d think of changing your titles to scuba q and a’s vol 1 etc to get more views.

I tend to use 5 mm superstretch gloves when diving cold water (and drygloves when it gets really cold). They keep my hands warm while offering great dexterity.

#askmark Hey there, Mark. Thank you again for the great videos. I’m going diving for the first time in the Maldives for underwater photography. For the first time, I will dive in currents. What are the best ways to use reef hooks without harming corals? I undrstand that reef hooks are highly recommended for this type of scuba diving/photography.

Avoid hooking onto living coral and loose debris and think about the direction of the current. You’ll be able to find a spot to plant your hook upstream of your position. The small point of the hook is precise for minimal impact on the bottom. Just find a good strong rock formation, plant your hook, hold onto the rope for a bit to check it’s hold and then relax. But, be prepared to swim and adjust your buoyancy should the hook slip.

AI is something I an using since around the 2000 have an aladin air x with transmitter. (Not functioning battery issue)
Now i have a sunto viper novo with a transmitter. Not loving it but it does the job.
Next will probably be the perdix 2 with a transmitter.
Hope i won’t get disappointed.

I purchased the same computer back in 2000-2001 and used it up until about a year ago and would experience intermittent issues with the transmitter sending air data to the computer. Upgraded to the ScubaPro G2 and love it.
