#AskMark hi! I was hoping you could help me understand the interchangeability of a DSMB and a simple SMB if I only plan to use it when I deploy it during my safety stop at 5 meters. I used the simple version for this purpose during my last liveaboard and despite occasionally having to reinflate at the surface due to some air escaping while being deployed underwater, it didn’t seem to be too problematic and so I was wondering if it’s necessary to have a DSMB for this purpose? The issue for me is that somehow I tend to end up misplacing my SMB quite often and so the price difference between the two makes it a more acceptable loss when it’s replacing the SMB regularly rather than the DSMB at double the cost

“The Cave to Be” filling station in The Lot region in France uses an actively cooled water bath to fill tanks. It’s actively cooled via an attached air conditioner and keeps the water very cold. It works great, both to protect the operator and to get fills that are great for cave diving, like 240 bar in steel tanks.

Sounds fancy, we just had some metal tanks filled with a hosepipe where I used to fill cylinders

@Yggdrasil42 it’s at the bottom second part. Plus just realized instead wasting money on a 5mm suit I was thinking of investing for a dry suit & taking the class.

Hi Mark! Hope that you are in the best of health.
I want to change my current regulator setup to a long hose regulator setup, can you make a video on how to mount the hoses and what are the best length for all hoses?( primary second stage, backup second stage, SPG and BCD inflator hose).
One more thing, can I use any first stage to make a long hose configuration? I am using (Mares Abyss 52X and Aqualung Leg3nd Elite) I want to make one of them long hose. Will it work? Or only the 5 port swivel turret regulators can be made into long hose config? Such as (MK25/19 Evo)

Thank you for your great videos. Take care and keep well.

What happens if you forget to put your regulator in dive mode and do a full dive in pre dive mode ?

Nothing. Your work of breathing will be a little higher but chances are you won’t even notice the difference unless you do some hard work under water.

Hi Mark. Thanks for another great video. #ASKMARK. Would you suggest a backplate and wing over Jacket style BCD for new advance divers.

Hi Mark, in my last dive I din’t had an antifog spray so I read in the internet that I can use babyshampoo instead.
In the dive (after 20 minutes) it started to made a lot of bubbles in my mask and to blow the mask out didn’t helped. I felt not really comfortable with that but I didn’t want to end this dive, because I had just the possibility to that one dive in this awesome spot. What would you recommend to do in such an situation? Should I stop the dive in this point or should I try to enjoy it next time?

That sounds a lot like you used too much shampoo and/or didn’t rinse enough. During the dive, you really only can try rinsing the mask. If it is not too much, then flushing the mask and clearing a few times will help. Otherwise, take off the mask, rinse it thoroughly, and put it back on. Then you are good to go for the rest of the dive.

I’d tell my buddy to hold, take off the mask under water, shake it a few times to rinse it then put it back on. That should get rid of most of the soap.
