    Buy Intersorb 812 from Damo at DKG Drysuits. Should work out much cheaper!

    I can ship it from Perth prior to the trip but really can't be arsed with 3rd world customs agents.

    Any help and pricing would be appreciated

    Still got to get it into Indonesia. I do sometimes think whether I should see about a licence, but at the end of the day, I got used to just paying what it costs for the sorb in country.

    Why not make a list of contacts in various countries. Since they are already rebreather divers they should have O2 sorb etc sorted out. And in the worst case they can give you a best price number so you know that you are getting ripped of buy even years of research could not have made it any cheaper. Teoman PS: I have EAC's O2 and Sorb and willing to share with anyone who finds their way to my part of the world.

    Are you looking at a distributer in Asia? Singapore or Indonesia specifically, but I guess Thailand has a market.

    Already talking to Damo, however once we ship it from the East coast of Australia to the West Cost the cost just sky rockets and puts it at about the same price as Sofnolime, internal road freight in this country is akin to piracy.

    I am working with Damo at the possibility of shipping pallets from you guys direct into Western Australia, we have around 100 Rebreathers in this State and only one source for Sofnolime and though they look after us I would love to see Intersorb here as well.

    As for South East Asia would be great to see a distributor for Intersorb in Bali, anywhere near Denpasar or up the East Coast would be outstanding then if some of the resorts threw in a booster and some O2 I think this area would become the new mecca for Australian CCR divers.

    We are currently doing some test trips with various resorts to see how they handle the logistics of CCR's but having to cart up a booster and cylinders, let alone sourcing sorb is proving to be a real PITA.

    Cheers

    Do we need more Aussie CCR Divers?
    I did see an new resort at Tulamben with cylinders, sorb and a booster. Alba I think? Also, Orca at Candidasa (and have rEvo tanks). It would be good if the centres got together on a bulk buy and imported it. Actually, shipping from Jakarta to Bali or anywhere isn't hugely expensive and it may be easier to get stuff into Jakarta easier than Denpasar.

    Re: Looking for 80kg of Sofnolime in Bali

    We have a re-seller in Papete and one in Singapore but would be interested to find one in Bali if it made sense.

    Any suggestions?
