Question about Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

1 Answer

The SPG seems to be stuck at 80Bar when ever u turn my air on.

I set up my gear for a training dive in the pool, when i did my pre-dive safety check i discovered that my spg was showing only 80 Bar. i assumed that my tank had not been filled past 80 Bar, so i continued the dive keeping in mind that i would only have a short amount of time before i would need to surface... after around 10min i found that my SPG still showed 80 bar... so basically i think my spg is stuck! i checked again with the tech who did my fill and he assured me that when i left the store that my cylinder was at 200bar. it is a mares mission 2. any idea what the deal is?

Spg rising slowly

You should open the tank valve slowly if after opening i takes more than 3 seconds to get up to pressure something is not working properly. FOR SAFETY GAUGES ARE SUPPOSE TO BE FACING AWAY FROM U WHEN PRESSURIZING. IF GAUGE IS DEFECTIVE AIR PRESSURE CAN BLOW GAUGE LENS OUT FRONT OF GAUGE.

If the cleaner is getting stuck on objects (steps, ladder, corners, benches, etc), you need to remove the dive float restrictor and install a wall climb adjuster. It is part number K12065. Anyone that sells Pentair products should have one. This will keep your pool cleaner from becoming stuck. It might also help with the seal problem, but that is most likely something caught in the flapper. Check to be sure that the pool cleaners getting proper flow and that the flapper is clear of debris.

Having problems with my KK keeps climbing the pool wall and sucking air, I've tried changing the length of the suction tube but it still wall walks. Any ideas ?

Check to ensure the pool cleaners dive float mechanism is operating freely and the dive float restrictor is installed. Check the automatic regulator valve for its proper installation and ensure it is not clogged
with debris. Make sure the water level is at least 3 inches below the pool deck. Finally, be sure that the cleaner is operating at the proper speed of 8-12 feet per minute..

Wheels will not turn

If these automatic pool cleaners seem to be working properly but the wheels are not turning, it is most likely debris or tree leaves that are caught in the axle bearings. Check to make sure that you do not have any obstructions. Whatever you do, do not turn the drive wheels by force. This may cause damage to the drive gear train.

My spairair system has a slow leak, how can i fix it. on boat in mid. of nowhair. Dave

Good luck with that...... A MUCH more reliable way to go is a small pony bottle, say a 13cf with an inexpensive reg and a pressure gauge /plug or better yet a regular SPG.. That way you have a real reg with a whole lot more air with which you can more comfortably share air or hopefully save yourself or do a bit of a safety stop on the way up.

Depth and time not correct

Do you live somewhere significantly above sea level?

If not, check your personal altitude setting. It's explained on pages 20 and 23 of the manual.

Robo kleen stopped working, motor starts but it does not move

Hello, I think I had the same problem with mine : the filterpump worked, but robot didn't move. I opened it up and the problem seemed to be that the pin which locks up the gear wheel to the axle of the front wheels had broken into three pieces. We inserted a new pin (nail, screw etc) and the Robo kleen works just fine again. Maybe you should check this is also the problemwith yours. Good luck !

How and why scuba gauges give a diver critical information while scuba diving?

Scuba gauges give a diver three very important pieces of information: 1. Time 2. Depth 3. Air Consumption This information enables a diver to stay within safe time and depth limits and avoid running out of air. There are many different devices on the market to help with this, from simple gauges to complex digital consoles. Time If a diver is not using a dive computer to monitor their nitrogen, they dive according to approved dive tables. To use dive tables properly, a diver needs to track their downtime. This can be done with a good dive watch. Two things make a good dive watch: water resistance and a rotating bezel. 1. Water Resistance. Good dive watches are rated to a depth in meters or feet (e.g. 200 feet) or a pressure rating in atmospheres (e.g. 4atm). Even though most divers probably won’t dive below 130 feet (the recreational dive limit), a good dive watch should be rated to 200 feet. Note: There is a difference between “water resistance” and “waterproof”. A “waterproof” watch is what you would wear in the shower, but would probably start leaking at 15-20 feet. 2. Rotating Bezel. A bezel is an adjustable ring on the face of the dive watch with a pointer indicator. At the beginning of a dive, the pointer on the bezel is aligned with the minute hand where it stays though out the dive. At the end of the dive, you compare the difference between the bezel and the minute hand to find out the length of the dive. The bezel should only move “counterclockwise”. It is possible to accidently move the bezel during a dive. Because of this, watchmakers make sure any accidental movement will turn the time in a conservative direction, making the dive longer rather than shorter. Depth Another important part of scuba gauges is a depth gauge. A depth gauge enables a diver to keep track of their depth even if they cannot see the water’s surface. Gauges can be either an analog (needle-and-dial) device or a digital device. Both work in the same way. They measure the surrounding water pressure and convert this into an accurate reading of your depth. Another feature of a good depth gauge is a maximum depth indicator. This tells a diver their maximum during a dive and must be reset after each dive. Air Consumption Another equally important part of scuba gauges is a submersible pressure gauge (SPG). This is connected to the first stage with a high-pressure hose and measures the pressure of the air in the tank. The SPG is much like the gas gauge on a car. At the beginning of a dive, a diver starts with a full tank. This should be about 3000 psi or 200 bars. As the diver breathes during the dive, the gauge will move slowly downwards. This allows the diver to have enough air left in the tank to: 1. Make a slow, safe ascent 2. Make any necessary decompression stops 3. Inflate their BCD once at the surface 4. Breath from the regulator if the surface conditions are rough A submersible pressure gauge also allows a diver to stop diving with air still in the tank. This keeps contaminants from entering the tank due to no air pressure. Wrist Depth Gauge Scuba gauges come in two basic styles. Stand alone gauges or gauge consoles. Stand alone gauges such as a wrist mounted depth gauge or a submersible pressure gauge attached to the first stage of a regulator are great backups when using digital gauges. Gauge consoles allow divers to have all their gauges in one place. Although less easy to read, analog gauges sometimes give slightly more accurate readings than digital gauges, particularly at shallow depth. Submersible Pressure Gauge Choosing Scuba Gauges When choosing scuba gauges, remember to look for: 1. Easy-to-read numbers 2. Luminescent dial or back lighting options 3. Rotating/swivel mounting 4. Easy disassembly for cleaning or replacing parts 5. Good warranty
