Best Scuba Diving Equipment
- The fundamental item of diving equipment used by divers is scuba equipment, such as the aqualung or rebreather. There are other important pieces of equipment that make diving safer, more convenient or more efficient.
- aqualung: a device (trade name Aqua-Lung) that lets divers breathe under water; scuba is an acronym for self-contained underwater breathing apparatus
- An aqualung
- An apparatus carried by a diver, which includes a tank holding a mixture of oxygen and other gases, used for breathing underwater; To perform scuba diving
- Scuba diving
- The scuba style offers a mid-rise bottom with moderate coverage. A belt or wide waistband is included. Also known as a surf bottom.

Diver Helmet and Light in a Seaside Restaurant
Diving helmets are worn mainly by professional divers engaged in surface supplied diving, though many models can be adapted for use with SCUBA equipment.
The helmet seals the whole of the diver's face from the water, allows the diver to see, provides the diver with breathing gas, provides an anchor point on the diver for the umbilical supplying the breathing gas, protects the diver's head when doing heavy or dangerous work, and usually provides voice communications with the surface. If a helmeted diver goes unconscious but is still breathing, the helmet will remain in place and continue to deliver breathing gas until the diver can be rescued. In contrast, the SCUBA regulators typically used by recreational divers must be held in the mouth, and will usually fall out of an unconscious diver's mouth resulting in drowning.
Before the invention of the demand regulator, all diving helmets used a free-flow design. Breathing gas was delivered at a constant rate, and whatever gas the diver did not inhale was exhausted through a valve. Most modern helmets incorporate a demand valve, which operates similarly to a SCUBA regulator. This means that the helmet only delivers breathing gas when the diver inhales. Free-flow helmets use much larger quantities of gas than demand helmets, which can cause logistical difficulties and is very expensive when special breathing mixtures, such as heliox, are used. They also produce a constant noise inside the helmet, which makes communication with the surface more difficult. Free-flow helmets are still preferred for hazardous materials diving, because their positive-pressure nature can prevent the ingress of hazardous material in case the integrity of the suit or helmet is compromised. They also tend to be much less expensive than demand helmets; this is an important consideration for dives in certain hazardous materials (such as acids) which physically degrade helmets and necessitate their period replacement.
Most helmet designs can be sealed to the diver's suit via a "neck dam." When worn with a drysuit, this keeps the entire head and body isolated from the surrounding liquid, giving an additional degree of warmth. In hazardous environments such as sewage or dangerous chemicals, a helmet is sealed to a special drysuit (usually made of rubber) to completely cover and protect the diver. Sealing the helmet to the suit also prevents it from flooding if the diver becomes inverted (head-down) in the water.
SS Thistlegorm - Bikes
Ha, the best thing I did not told you yet. The night before Ivo and I checked our equipment well. And Ivo told me a lot of things to look for preparing the equipment right, which was part of his job during this photo course.
So after 4 hours of boat driving we reached the SS Thistlegorm and prepared our diving equipment. The wreck lies in the open sea, so you have to dive into the blue align a rope which is tied at the bug. Ivo was right in front of me and after we reached the bug on 20m depth I saw Ivo going nuts, signing problems with his camera and diving up really quickly.
I went behind to see what was wrong and there was water coming into his housing :( The crazy thing is that he did a mistake during the assembling and the carrying straps lied over the rubber seal looking out of the housing! What a teacher ;) Happily nothing happend and everything was OK but Ivo had to do the first dive without his camera and did a quite good job as guide through the wreck while the boat crew earned some bakschisch cleaning Ivo?s housing :)
