(TOP) TEN TIPS TO MAINTAIN (AND REPAIR) YOUR GEAR

Scuba diving equipment is an important investment for the diver. Not only is it considered to be ‘life support’ equipment, it also represents a significant financial commitment on the part of the diver. Moreover, it is a fundamental tool which, when used effectively, can enhance the joy of spending time in the magnificent underwater world. 

The vast majority of commercially available dive equipment reflects commendable quality of manufacture, and competent performance. However, HOW that equipment is ‘treated’ by the user directly affects performance and longevity.

This presentation reviews some proper (efficient and optimal) maintenance procedures, and provides recommendation both for certain basic field repairs, and as well as procedures for prevention of problems that might necessitate those field repairs, without which an otherwise enjoyable dive experience might be compromised, or missed.




SPEAKER BIO

William T. (Bill) Sawyer is a scuba Instructor (PADI Master Instructor and Tec Deep Instructor; SDI / TDI recreational and technical instructor), and a credentialed service technician for a number of scuba equipment manufacturers (e.g. Atomics, Zeagle, Sherwood / Genesis, Aqualung / Apeks, Dive Rite, Ocean Technology Systems, etc.).

While diving is his passion, and dive training is a primary extension of that passion, over his career he has also developed a focused interest in diving equipment, including equipment service, optimization of gear configurations, and instruction of divers in maintenance procedures to support best performance. This presentation represents an ‘executive summary’ an equipment selection, maintenance and repair course he has developed to help divers become more comfortable in the maintenance and repair of their gear, and more informed with regard to gear selection.
