Bouyancy Control

Buoyancy Control Begins with Proper Weighting weights

The amount of weight you select should allow you to descend, not make you sink. Predive buoyancy tests are a crucial tool in determining proper weighting.

Calculating weight requirements: Different exposure suits, dive environments (saltwater vs. freshwater), and tank size and composition (steel vs. aluminum) require different amounts of weight to attain proper buoyancy.

Your BCD is not an elevator. Be aware of how your BCD responds to the addition or venting of small amounts of air.

And remember, buoyancy changes during the dive. On descent, your wetsuit compresses decreasing buoyancy. During the dive, as the gas in your tank is depleted, the tank becomes more buoyant. On ascent, the air in your wetsuit and BCD expands, increasing your buoyancy.

The benefits of buoyancy control are definitely worth the investment of time, maintenance, and practice to enhance your diving and to help you avoid injury.

Quality air when diving with us..

Breathing clean air is a critical requirement when scuba diving. To ensure that quality of our gases, we test our air regularly as this is crucial for the safety in diving.

The allowance according to European Standards is a maximum of 15 ppm Carbon Monoxide and a maximum of 500 ppm Carbon Dioxide. Our air contains just 1 ppm of Carbon Monoxide and 410 ppm of Carbon Dioxide.

Happy and safe diving with The Dive Shop's clean air in Cambodia!
