    I was told that from now on, you should open the tank valve fully (withoht turning back one quarter round) so I did. But my buddy who checked me thought the tank was closed so he "opened" it leaving it one quarter round open. At 30 meters, I looked at my pressure gauge and saw it moving up and down with each breath I took. 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.

    Just got back from an amazing dive safari in the Maldives. Did I already amazing? Because I can't put enough emphasis on amazing.

To sum it up: it wasn't just a vacation, it was a life changing experience!... More
