    Does anyone know?

    Hello I am new to the world of rebreathers and I am an experience diver but I want to take it to a new level. I just purchased a rebreather starter on e-bay and I was wondering if anyone knows what the value of it is I can't seem to find it anywhere I payed 750.00 dollars for it. Draeger Dolphin SCUBA REBREATHER SCR W/ Zeagle Octo-Z Thanks.

    For a Dolphin in good shape that seems like a pretty price to me.
    Get some training dont just jump in the pool with that thing.

    Welcome to RBW!

    You did very well. $750 is a good deal. I saw the listing, and it has some extra goodies. They go anywhere for $500 for a piece of junk, to unrealistic people wanting $3000 for them. Original MSRP was $3500, with no electronics. You have the older model Dolphin. It has the piston 1st stage. It all works the same, just the hoses are goofy on the older ones.

    A couple of things:

    1) Get it serviced. They can be very unforgiving if not working properly.
    2) Get proper training. It can and will kill you. You won't even know it's happening.....you'll just go to sleep underwater.
    3) Get electronics for monitoring PO2. There's an AirZO2/Oxy2 on fleabay right now for $850. That's a really good price...about 1/3 from original MSRP. There are other options, but the AirZO2/Oxy2 was made specifically for the Dolphin.
    4) Get ready to spend more money. It's gonna nickel and dime you to death to get everything just the way you want it. Every time you turn around it's a few hundred bucks for this or that. Welcome to the world of rebreathers!

    Take a look at some of my other posts. I asked a lot of the same questions when I first started. You can learn a lot just by surfing the site. I'm no guru, but I'm pretty comfortable with the Dolphin.....been using it for several years now. I'll be glad to answer any questions. There are lots of folks on here who know Dolphins very well, and all are happy to help.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree with this. Training on these things is very imortant. They can be a lot of fun, or they can kill you.

    Be safe,
