    Hello from Oporto

    Hi
    I introduce myself presenting some doubts in the forum. Last year I had completed a TDI Extended Range/Trimix Diver course in OC and Iím thinking to buy a JJ Rebreather changing this way to CCR. What do you think of these options, do not continue with the OC formation changing to CCR and the choice of JJ and my first rebreather.

    Welcome to the forum.
    In my point of view the first things you have to ask yourself are:

    Do I really need a CCR?
    Do I know the costs of mantaining a "healthy" CCR?

    After This:

    Why that CCR in particular?

    Have you tried it or it's just because someone tell you in Facebook?

    Do you know that the perfect CCR for one person is a really piece of shit for other? (Not talking specific of the JJ).

    At this point you have instructors of almost all the machines in Portugal for sure they will be glad to give you a try dive before buying any of the machines.

    TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!! Take this in consideration really!

    Hello from Oporto

    Rama

    I don't know the JJ CCR but in Portugal you have people diving Inspiration/Evolution, Meg, Poseidon, VR Tech Sentinel, maybe the odd KISS too, to name just a few. You also have some damn fine instructors (for all the above) too. I suggest you speak with them before you do anything (you have CCR divers in Oporto). They are here on RBW, just ask them to contact you and they will... Oporto has O2 and sofnolime, diving CCR with other CCR divers will help you alot!

    With exception of "exotic" brands and the rEVO all others rebreathers brands are present in Portugal even Kiss!

    It's a lot of money to spend just because you have read "some things" on the internet.

    The point being that another option will be SOON available in Portugal.
    Soon doesn't have to mean tomorrow but, to make it almost clear, I believe in the end of March.
    So, if Rama is not in a hurry, he will have another rebreather option.

    Regards
