    Do you do two 60+m dives on the same scrubber?

    As it says. Would you do 2 x 60m+ dives on the same scrubber (and I'm talking proper dives - not a bounce dive which was aborted after thirty seconds).

    Unit is pretty much irrelevant unless you've got some fancy super duper one, in which case pretend you have a 'typical' rebreather.

    No way , I'm saving so much money on helium I can afford a fresh fill every deep dive. Last thing I need is to worry about how long the scrubber is going to last when I'm a couple of hours from the surface.........

    It depends. Run time? Bottom temp? Exertion level? There is no one quick answer.

    And everyone know that 60m is just another deco stop on the way to the surface .

    I've done two 200-220ft on the same scrubber both dives had a runtime around 90 minutes.

    Did you just ask if I'd dive twice on the same scrubber?

    Anyway, the answer is yes, I do. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. I change the scrubber for a deep dive, but 60 isn't in that category. The only real limit is time. The water is pretty warm here, so I have a bit more room to manoeuvre.

    It's not that important, but for the sake of argument, let's say 60m (180ft), 25 minutes on the bottom, 90 minutes total runtime, 16C water, normal levels of exertion.
