    I'd leave it as is, unless it was going to be months before I got back to it. Certainly, I would not pour the 'sorb back into the jug... The last time that I gone blown out, I left my rebreather assembled for about 3 weeks and then just redid all of the functionality checks, before diving.

    I wouldn't leave it stored with a negative pressure test...but that is about wear on the breather (sharp edges on hoses, etc.)


    But the sorb sealed in it for a week or two isn't an issue...so long as it isn't in sunlight or heat (or freezing)...all of which affect the moisture content of the sorb.

    I have no problems leaving sorb in my unit (tr300) sealed for month or two. Sure full check of functionality before using it again.

    If you did a negative test and left it, I would open the DSV and then close again. There should be next to no CO2 in the loop to affect the scrubber, if it was dry and it is sealed against ambient air you should be fine for ages.

    This applies to pretty much any scrubber really, Martins can is going to be no different to the Sofno cartridge. Have you tried to fit the blue plastic cartridge seals onto the can? If they work then you should be able to keep it almost indefinitely.
