    ADV flow stop

    I am in the process to connect a flow stop to my ADV, have you cut down the hose the length of shut off valve ?

    Regards

I'll try & attach a pic...

    Yes, as mentioned I do it like shown above, but it's not hard to shorten the length of the hose if you choose to, as it comes with the re-usable ends, so you just unscrew the 2 parts, chop off a couple of centimetres of hose and reassemble.

    Yesterday I did a dive with my flow stop installed! Did checks, everything ok, breathed unit ok, so I jumped in, while going down, I tried to inhale, , ohh quick hand up to find flow stop and open it as it was closed...not a nice feeling, good thing is always to practise to find thing/buttons !

    Pierre,

    My unit never had an ADV on it and still does not. The first time I went through about 15 fsw or so, head down and feeling cocky, tried to take a breath and went: "Oooooooh!" (sound of sucking on a straw with a bend in the middle), then had a flash of realization and hit the button, that particular light came on and stayed on (for me, at least)!!!
