Step1 Make sure you are gripping the mouthpiece of the snorkel securely with your teeth. Step2 Exhale forcefully through your mouth. The majority of the water should be expelled from the tube. This method is commonly called "blasting" or "popping." Step3 Inhale gently at first in case there is any residual water. Blast a second time if needed. Step4 Continue blasting whenever water enters the snorkel.

Excess water dripping into refrigerator from freezer. I am in the process of defrosting. Ice build up behind freezer back wall. Do I need a new heater or will clearing the ice from drains suffice?


Hello,

Clearing the ice build up is a good start,the problem though is the drain pan under the coil in the freezer thats iced up is blocked so when the defrost heater comes on and melts the frost from that coil,it the water is collecting in the freezer and in many cases drips into the fresh food compartment,clearing the drain will resolve your leaking/ice build up issue.THE DEFROST HEATER IS GOOD melting the frost in the first place and hence forth that melted frost stays in the freezer and becomec ice.

The clasp to connect mask to snorkle broke. can I purchase the small clasp?


In short, no. But just do as many other do and use a short rubber band. Lay the middle of the band across the inside of the strap, and then pass the snorkel tube through the two resulting loops either side of the strap.

How do I clean my hydroair LX snorkel? I'm seeing


I use baking soda, warm water and bottle brushes for pretty much anything that goes near my mouth. My hydration bladder gets that treatment often especially after a long trip, as has my snorkel a couple of times. You could try find a platypus or camelbak cleaning kit at your local outdoors store.

I bought this snorkel used and put it in my bathtub last night and it filled with water. The lower chamber is filling to the point I can't even blow it out. Is there something I don't know?


From what you've described, you have a self-draining snorkel (at least it would be if working correctly). There will be a simple diaphragm valve at the lowest point of the snorkel, it's usually made of a silicone rubber disc and in use is held closed by external water pressure. It can also be held open if there is any grit or sand in it, if it is damaged or if it's simply hardened with age.

All you can do is clean it and make sure it seats correctly. If it has failed in any way or if the diaphragm is simply missing then buy a new snorkel as they don't need to be expensive.

There's a good reason that many divers still prefer a simple j-tube snorkel and it's because there is nothing to go wrong. I personally do use a self-draining snorkel but I'm careful to inspect and clean the valve before and after every use and always have a spare snorkel in my dive bag.

On an unrelated matter, if the snorkel has any kind of device on the open end to prevent water from entering then I strongly recommend that you remove it. They're restrictive to airflow and are potentially dangerous. There is no substitute for simplicity and for learning to use a snorkel correctly.

How exactly do snorkels work when you are under the water???


Or more to the point: Snorkels don't work under water. They work on the surface by allowing the wearer to have his/her face in the water so that one can look at what is going on and the top of the snorkel is several inches above the surface allowing the user to breath through the tube. If, as often happens, the snorkel gets water in it, there is a trap at the bottom that catches it so you don't **** it into your lungs and on the next exhale you do so forcefully and this expels all the water from the tube and allows you to continue breathing.

The right snorkel for me


"A snorkel must fit comfortably in your mouth, allow you to purge water out of the mouthpiece and hose quickly and help you to swim efficiently. But, the most important characteristics to remember when choosing a snorkel are its length and the diameter of its barrel. Snorkels must not be too long or too short. If a snorkel is too long it will be difficult to breathe because the barrel will fill up with carbon dioxide. Every time you breathe out carbon dioxide through your snorkel your breath must travel up and out of the barrel of your snorkel to allow you to draw oxygen back down the barrel and into your lungs. If your snorkel is too long you will only push a percentage of the carbon dioxide up and out of the barrel during your exhale. You will need to inhale oxygen before all the carbon dioxide has been pushed out; leaving the percentage of carbon dioxide entering your bloodstream higher each time you take a breath. This cycle could lead to suffocation. If a snorkel is too short it will constantly fill with water, requiring you to constantly force the water out of your snorkel which can be very exhausting. The inside diameter of your snorkel must be approximately three quarters of an inch or 1.9 cm. If the snorkel is thinner than .75 inches it will be difficult to breathe because there will not be enough room in the barrel for you to draw enough air into your lungs. This will cause you to breathe harder and rapidly, which could cause hyperventilation. If the barrel is thicker than .75 inches it will be too large and will be uncomfortable to use and attach to your mask. Learning to attach your snorkel to your scuba mask to make sure it is easy to grab and use is an important part of safe scuba diving practices. Snorkels are attached to the left side of your mask with a snorkel keeper. Snorkel keepers are either plastic or rubber and most use a post-hole closure. Each snorkel keeper is different and attaching your snorkel to your mask with a snorkel keeper requires practice. If you will detach your snorkel from your mask after each dive you should practice attaching your snorkel, as it can be a little tricky. Alternately, you can leave your snorkel attached to your mask if you are diving more than once in a day. "

Snorkel need issue


Every scuba diver spends time on the surface while preparing to descend for a dive. A snorkel allows you to conserve energy by letting you keep your head in the water while swimming and enjoying the pre-dive sights without ever having to remove your head from the water.
