    They use what is known as a hydrophobic membrane. It is a material that will allow small molecules like gases to pass through but larger molecules I.e. water cannot pass through it.

    could you not put a membrane across the mouth opening on a dsv ?

    wouldnt have to open and close it then ?

    This works on the scrubber because of the surfice area. On a mouthpiece the opening is too small so the work of breathing would be WAY to high.

    Stick a piece of Gore Tex over your mouth and try breathing through it.
