    Never thought about stuff in the water interfering with the valves... Certainly could be an issue for me and the ocean I dive in - Lots of funky stuff in the water. Thanks!

    If any of you have the time, can you please enter your incident information into the DAN Dive Incident Database.

    It is online at https://www.diversalertnetwork.org/r...ncidentReport/ and has a section for rebreathers.

    We can rarely determine the cause of fatalities with certainty, since the main participant is no longer with us. That means that the incident database may be our best chance of getting the real sequence of events that lead to near misses.

    If we want to reduce fatalities, we have to understand the accident sequences better.
