    Flooded through the exhaust

    HI All,
    just got back from Scapa Flow, diving was Exellent, just one problem
    the scubber got flooded the watere got in through the exhaust valve
    as I did have it all the way open so I did not get hamster cheeks on the
    way up. So my question is has anyone had the same problem ? & if so how
    did you get over this or do I put up with the hamster cheeks

    Andy

    If you ascend flat rather than upright you will get less of the hamster cheeking.

    I dive with the valve fully shut. If you are getting hamster cheeks, exhale a bit through the nose rather than waiting for the valve to pop.
