South East Asia
Around the World

So I have figured that I have a faulty regulator and I signaled the guys that I am out of air and we should surface. So calmly and slowly, with a safty stop at 6m, we surfaced. Then we realized that it was just the tank valve which was not fully open. So here is my aftermath: First, the old procedure of turning back the tank valve 1/4 round works great, I don't why changing it. Second, when you have a regulator or air problem, do some quick and basic checks before you terminate the dive, it might something as simple as giving the tank valve a few spins. Now, although the dive went sour, we got a good practice of surfacing while buddy breathing .... More
