Why are my regulators freeflowing? #askmark #scuba @ScubaDiverMagazine
#askmark Hi Mark. I've been enjoying your videos and learning quite a lot from them, so thank you and keep up the good work! I've got a question myself now which I hope you can help me with. Last weekend I went diving for the first time in almost three months and my octo started free flowing as soon as it hit the water. It's an Aqualung Leg3nd with only 20 dives on it and it hasn't done that before. I quickly turned it over and it stopped, but as soon as I turned it back over to put it in the octo pocket of my bcd, it started free flowing again. I checked the venturi switch, but that was set correctly. I flipped the switch back and forth a couple of times, but to no avail. Whenever it was under water with the mouth piece facing up, it would start free flowing. I could breathe from it normally. Since it was a dive in a confined pool I decided to just use my octo and store my primary away, so I could test it again under water. At about five meters depth I tried again, and it still free flowed as soon as the mouth piece faced up. Only once or twice did it somehow not free flow, so I imagine something is set too lightly? I never opened it and it's not been serviced. Do you have any idea what might be the problem? Thanks!
