    I think I've got it worked out. It just does not make much sense to me having both second stages in use at the same time.

Have a tear in the rubber on the mask under the nose piece. Can it be repaired?


Repair is unlikely to be satisfactory. You probably will have to replace the mask

With any mask it is important that it is the correct size for your face. To check the size place the mask to your face without using the strap. Breath in through your nose to create a vacuum, the mask should stay stuck to your face. If air leaks in then the mask may well not be suitable for you. Of course the mask skirt (the bit that touches your face) must be clean and free from damage or tears. Also your face must be clean ie no sun tan lotion. Just a tip never have the straps tight on your mask..
Hope that helps :)

Replacement Quick Disconnect Strap Buckles


You won't find any spare parts as Sherwood don't supply them.

Your mask had a limited 12 month warranty from new, so if it's under warranty still then Sherwood will likely either replace the entire mask or take the parts you need off a spares donor for you.

Click here to contact them.

If you can't claim under warranty they may still decide to help you on a goodwill basis, but in future if you want reliable spares and aftersales support buy established market leading brands such as Mares, ScubaPro, Cressi etc.

Leaking at glass connections at top of mask


I hope you don't think I'm being rude, but the best and most reliable fix is to chuck away the appalling bit of rubbish which U.S. Divers conned you into buying and replace the mask with one which is designed for divers by divers (snorkellers included!). This would mean almost anything by Seac Sub, Mares, ScubaPro, Suunto, Oceanic, TechniSub and others.

I'm sure that the "U.S." in the company name means "UnServiceable".

Light-heartedness aside, I am being serious. There are the overpriced but cheaply made and badly engineered items sold by U.S. Divers and then there are items which actually work reliably. Despite the immensely better quality of the better brands they usually have models which start at low prices.

Despite my obvious dislike of the brand you have, it's fair to say that your problem could just be due to age or misuse: the silicone rubber skirts on all masks shrink and harden with age and the harder plastics in the construction distort and may also shrink. The processes are accelerated if you tend to leave your mask out in the sun and if you just stuff your mask unboxed into a dive bag with loads of other gear or towels packed on top.

You can try popping off the frame which holds the glass in place and then reseating everything correctly before reassembling, but I'm confident that this will be as effective as trying to pick your nose whilst wearing boxing gloves.

Platina mask with Tusa lenses leaking round side of lense


yes you can use vasaline for a temp fix however this is nothing like relieble and could fail without warning at any depth (pressure)
may i suggest "milliput" its a two part resin which can make water tight seals, once set; it form a perminant hard join which can be filed for a better fit.
one word of warning it is oil based so under no circustances take it into a decompression chamber.

I really like the 'full-face" US Diver Seal Mask and/or Aqua Seal Vista googles. (Both are actually swim goggles, not masks). However, I have an eye correction of 13 diopters, requiring prescription lens....


This shouldn't be a problem at all. It is better to have a eyeglass kit made that allows the use of prescription lenses to be installed inside of the mask. Remind your optometrist that glasses are regularly made and fitted to the inside of facemasks of self contained breathing apparratus (SCBA) for firefighters. You don't grind lenses for the facemask, you have the lenses mounted inside, and when you wear the mask, the glasses are held close to your eyes. The beauty of this is that when you buy a new mask, you just refit your kit into the new mask.

How to choose a scuba mask


"The shape of the scuba mask and the silicone skirt on the mask must conform to the shape of your face to provide you with a comfortable fit. Ensuring the silicone skirt is a high-grade, flexible silicone can help to ensure the scuba mask conforms to the shape of your face and the long life of your scuba mask. Some people are allergic to different types of rubber, if you have an allergy to rubber, be sure to choose a silicone scuba mask because silicone is hypoallergenic. Always talk to your scuba diving gear retailer about the alternatives available to you. When trying on scuba masks you will notice the different shapes of the nose pockets. The nose pocket protects and cushions your nose, helps to keep your scuba mask from fogging during a dive and helps you to maintain equalization. Ensure the size and shape of your nose pocket is comfortable; not too tight and not too large. This will improve not only the comfort of your scuba mask, but your ability to purge your mask efficiently. There are increasingly different styles of scuba mask straps on the market. You may like the factory issue strap on your scuba mask or you may want to purchase a separate strap. Scuba mask straps are available in a single strap or a double strap design. The single strap should wrap around the centre of the back of your head. The benefit of the double strap is that you can position the top strap on the upper part of your head and the bottom strap on the lower part of your head to offer extra stability and comfort. Most scuba mask straps are rubber or silicone and fasten with a post-hole belt enclosure. Newer scuba masks offer a slide-lock type enclosure, which allows you to adjust the scuba mask quickly and easily when wearing the mask. Scuba masks are constantly improving. If you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses on a daily basis you can purchase a scuba mask without having to wear your glasses or contact lenses under your mask. Many manufacturers will create custom scuba masks which include your prescription in the front lens. A good sign you have chosen the right scuba mask for your face is when the mask stays on your face comfortably without using the straps to hold it in place. You should try this simple test with each scuba mask you try on for the first time: See our choices for scuba masks 1. Place the scuba mask over your eyes and mouth ensuring the mask is in the correct position. 2. Take a quick, light breath in through your nose and immediately start to breathe through your mouth as if you are scuba diving. This will create a slight suction between the scuba mask and your face. The scuba mask should stay on your face. If you must push the scuba mask against your face, or inhale repeatedly to help the mask stay on your face, the mask is not a good fit. 3. Keep the scuba mask on your face for approximately one minute. This will help you to determine how tight the seal is and how comfortable the mask is on your face. 4. Exhale gently through your nose to release the seal on your scuba mask and remove the mask from your face. There should be no mark on your face from the scuba mask. If there is a red line around your face from the seal of the mask, the seal was too tight or the mask is not the proper size for your face. Try the test a second time. If you still have a red mark on your face after you remove the mask, you need to continue your search for a scuba mask. Remember, a good scuba mask is one that's comfortable, doesn't leak and is easy to use."

Scuba mask maintenance


" 1. Use a defogging solution before every dive, even when diving more than once in the same day. This will prevent your scuba mask from fogging during a dive. You can purchase a commercially prepared defogging solution from any reputable scuba diving retailer. Squeeze a drop or two onto the inside lens of your mask and gently rub the solution around to cover the inside completely. Dip your mask briefly into water, swirl the water around the inside of your mask very quickly and empty the water from your mask. A quick rinse will remove any excess defogging solution from the inside of your mask. You do not want to get defogging solution in your eyes, especially while diving, since it can cause stinging and irritation. If you don't want to use a commercially prepared defogging solution you have a defogging solution readily available and it's free, your saliva. Your saliva will prevent your scuba mask from fogging just as well as any commercial defogging solution. The enzymes in your saliva stick to the lens of your mask like a commercial defogging solution and you will never find yourself without a defogger while on a dive. 2. Never lay your scuba mask face-down on any surface. Salt, sand and grit will scratch the lens of your mask. Always place your mask face up when you are not wearing it or if it is not in its hard case. 3. Rinse your scuba mask in clean, freshwater after each dive and dry it thoroughly before storing it in its hard case. After a dive, your mask will be covered in a salty residue and/or dirt. This must be rinsed clean to prevent the silicone on your mask from degrading. Your mask must be completely dry before storing it to ensure the silicone stays clean and odor-free. 4. Always store your scuba mask in its hard case. If your mask did not come with a hard case purchase an after-market hard case. This will protect your mask from dirt and abrasives and protect it while traveling. Always store the case out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will break down the silicone after years of exposure. 5. Periodically repeat the toothpaste treatment to keep the lens of your scuba mask clean. A good rinse after each dive helps to keep your mask clean, but to ensure there is no residue or grit left on your scuba mask you must properly clean it on a regular basis."
