Re: Preparing my GEM rebreather for a dive

a couple of things to consider in the video.

1> Negative check was too much, at least from the sound of it. Negative checks should be abit light. You can cause damage with too heavy of a negative check.

2> Stereo check of the mouthpiece. Is done via the actual mouthpiece(not blowing in an end), and you cover inhale side hose, check, then cover exhale side, and check. Thats your stereo check.

Above courtesy of Doug Ebersole, July 2012.

A couple of optional things to note.

1> You dont need to take the mouthpiece apart from the loop. I leave mine assembled.
2> You dont need to remove the counterlungs from the carrier, although I dunk all my stuff in salt away before sterilizing, so the cavity inside the carrier is flushed.

Nice Video!

Re: Preparing my GEM rebreather for a dive

Thanks Jeff for the info, Always good to get feed back

Some things were for cinematic effect. I enhanced the sounds and my gestures.

Thanks for the stereo check advice. My instructor showed it this way, but yours sound a little bit better.

I break the loop down for the cleaning process. I find it dries better that way.

Cheers and thanks for your input
