Better regulators minimize the work of breathing. They minimize the amount of air you burn just getting air.
They lose performance and increase work of breathing with use and age, and need regular maintenance.
On many regulators, the purpose of the adjustment knob is not merely to prevent free-flowing on the surface. It's also to minimize work of breathing at depth. Periodically during your dive, open the valve until the regulator just begins to bubble, then back up on the adjustment a bit.
Your gear is your key to surviving the depths. Don’t skimp on it, but rather splurge on a good quality regulator, BCD, computer, mask, fins, etc., that you can rely upon.
Know your skill level and only do dives that will push the limits of your skills a little at a time.
Learn to identify fish species and the types of other animal and plant life, etc. you will encounter.
CEO at Arvand Diving Center
’Deep’ and ‘Underwater Navigation’ are the two essential specialty dives you need under your belt to become an Advanced Open Water Diver, but we add a third one – Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB), which is about getting your buoyancy right. It’s the number one environmental skill that you can apply while diving in terms of bashing into things and getting too close to the corals and not knowing how to get out.
