    The Stupid List For Noobs

    I was thinking about all the new people who are buying rebreathers and I was thinking it might be a good idea to get a list of the Stupid things that we as seasoned rebreather divers do that a new diver will not know to do. So we can give these JAFO's a leg up. So I am going to start the list. Feel free to add to it and I will convert it to a document they can down load.

    Don't leave a damp sponge/sham-wow in your loop.

    Always know your ppo2 goes without saying ... or should do!
    but also make sure you still check your dil and o2 contents gauges regularly.

    Clean and dry your fischer connectors after use and before capping off
