Water in Exhale Lung?

Did a couple of dives last weekend and after each dive, there was an abnormal amount of water in the exhale counter lung - and a tiny bit in the bottom of the canister. Undo the MAV and it will come running out. Dives sub 1 hour. So I dont think its all dribble!

The Unit holds a positive test and so too the negative (there is a tiny tiny whistling sound from the o2 mav when doing neg mind - but holds).

I've asked my buddies to look for bubbles while diving - none. At this point I will order new MAV parts for the counterlung base and a new dump too. But any other suggestions where the water could be coming from?

I have the OCB, but on either dive did not do any in-water bailouts.

Rich

Yep, I've retightened the bases today, they weren't loose, but I did make them tighter - got to be careful not to snap them.

Re: Water in Exhale Lung?

some months ago my base broke, and some water entered the CL, I think I overtied it, it's just plastic...
but spares are cheap :)

Re: Water in Exhale Lung?

I had the same issue for quite a while when I first got my Inspiration. I actually had 2 separate issues. The O-ring that seals the opening of the DSV when rotated had some debris that would sometimes make it leak, and other times not so much. Found that when I disassembled the DSV and replaced the valves and O-ring. The other was the silicone mouthpiece was not sealing well where the tie-wrap holds it on. Neither of these will show in a positive or negative check (unless the debris affects the seal when closed, which mine didn't). I was getting frustrated thinking it was loose lips until I got it sorted out.

Thanks, I think that could be it. Will strip down tomorrow.

Check your mouthpiece carefully. A small crack or hole in the mouthpiece can be practically invisible if you don't pull and twist it a bit.
