    Well the criteria i used for our Rebreather Friendly Destinations DB are

    1 - Scrubber Material for sale
    2 - O2 on site
    3 - Booster pump eg haskel available
    4 - He if they are catering to technical diving
    5 - Cylinders for hire, Inspirations are best bet as you can use them in the insp, Meg, Prism, kiss, Ouroboros....

    My 2 penneth...

    PRISM Topaz & Sport KISS

    (still owned) MK15

    Stuart summs it up nicely. If they also have a couple of sensors on the shelf and a few rigged stage tanks for bailout they're even friendlier. ;)

    I'm no expert but what spare parts has to be the order of the day ??? That and a RB instructor of course to get more people to make the change :)

    JJ Hybrid

    Inspo, Hammer Head, KISS rEvo

    Inspiriation tanks

    O2 booster pump

    Spare scrims, O rings, O2 Cells, batteries

    Proper Sofnalime

    7ltr Ali stages (Using 10s when you dont have to is a PITA)

    A spare unit incase yours goes terminal would be nice but a bit much to ask :)

    Dive guides that will tolerate the diver doing more than 60mins on a dive.

    That is a bloody brilliant point! Not much point in having an RB some where warm if you cant IMHO....
