    Water collection in breathing loop.

    Hello. I was curious as to how much water you guys collect after a dive from your bags, hoses, ect.
    If you could state length of dive how much water in each part, and the temp of the water.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ian,

    Which of the following are you looking for ?

    1) condensation
    2) salt water
    3) drool

    My answers would be (after approx 5 hours spread across 2 days of diving)

    1) quite a bit, enough to be seen in the scrubber bucket and completely saturate the foam at the bottom.
    2) next to none
    3) enough to make the OC guys cringe when I drain my exhale lung.

    Rich

    Re: Water collection in breathing loop.

    1) condensation 20mls or so I guess, sits in the pad in the bottom bucket below the Scrubber
    2) salt water Never had any in the looop, (touch wood)
    3) Drool A teaspoon or so in the exhale lung after a few hours, depends how how good the dive was.

    Cheers

    200mls - are you serious? After 1 dive?
    I was getting 10 to 20mls after a day.

    There are no terminals in the loop of the PRISM save for the wiring harness for the cells. all others for on/off, secondary and primary are on the Bulk Head. And they didnít rust or leak

    The Head, On/Off out to the side, Primary and Secondary in the middle.


    Inside the Loop, Cells and Wiring Harness


    Cheers
