    Question Spherasorb Poll

    Hi all,
    After the interesting debate about the Sodalime from Airgas (here in the US),
    I wanted to get a feel for how many of you out there (world wide) are using Spherasorb on a regular basis?

    So, please answer the poll and feel free to post your thoughts, comments and experiences etc. on Spherasorb from Intersurgical.

    Also, I am interested to hear if anyone ever had a bad experience with Spherasorb???

    cheers,
    RBN

    I dive Spherasorb in all my unitīs and never had a problem with it. I pushed it in the ray quite hard to 140-150 minutes and never had a problem. In the LAR I used it up to 90 minutes now without any problems, no indicator change at all!

    As far as I know itīs OK for warm waters, in the cold and deep waters you should not use it.

    I've got about three or four jugs left after having run through probably ten times that many without any problem. I alternate between whatever I can find most readily at the time I need to place an order.

    I did use it with no problems. Would still use it, but I bought a pallet of Sofnolime.
    I like spherasorb quite a bit. Less dust of all the lime I've used.

    It's fine - it was the first sorb I ever used and also used it during my trimix course to 80m as that was what was available. Sofnolime is less expensive and more readily available where I am so I use most of the time. If one of the options was I'd use it if it was more readily available and competitively priced I'd have probably gone for that one.

    Over here spherasorb is the cheapest sorb available, maybe one point why it is used so widely in europe?
