    KISS

    Cool Hello

    Hi,
    Would just like to introduce myself. My name is Cath and I am a fairly newly (December 2009) KISS rebreather diver.
    I have just been reading a post from Jamie about a reaction to sofnolime which I think I am suffering from myself. Need to do some more research into the matter, but I like the advive about getting rid of the dust first and putting a scrim on the inhale side. Will have to try this!
    PS I am very new to all this, so please bear with me!!!

    Cheers
    Cath x

    Re: Hello

    Hi Cath, welcome. Great to meet you. I am wondering what kind d of reaction you are having? I have been getting a pain in the back of my throat each time I dive.
    It lasts a couple days, with no more symptoms. It hurts a bit when I swallow. Are you experiencing this? What it the other thread you refer to in your post?

    Re: Hello

    Great to know there's another KISS diver in the North East

    One thing I have tried (and seemed to work) was to assemble the canister then use a vacuum cleaner to pull lots of air through the can to suck out the dust.

    Unfortunately, the dive store where the KISS lives at the moment doesn't have a vacuum cleaner. Might be worth a try though.

    I have an inspo scrim cut down at the top of the canister in my KISS but I'm not sure how much it helps. Still get the odd husky voice after diving (but the gf thinks it's sexy...!)

    Re: Hello

    I vacuum my packed scrubber every time, this removes every dust. Never had any problems after I started doing this!

    Had a sore throat before without vacuuming!
