I used their 'deck-snorkel' dozens of times, good for cleaning hulls. I never dived deeper with it than 5 metres. I am sure I could could have gone further. Usually I put the battery
and box in the dinghy
. Although salt water
affects the compressor
and had to renew some parts
, because when you are using it the lid needs to remain open, otherwise it will overheat.
A normal 80 or 100 Amp battery
always lasted longer than I would, no problems there, howewer you boat needs to have the (spare) capacity to charge that.
Quite expensive to buy new, but 2nd hand available and very affordable.
The setup as Barnakiel mentioned, just a cylinder on board or hanging on the railing and using hose and a mouthpiece, worked very well for me, simple and cheap
. Good for jumping overboard
the removed tangled rope
around the prop etc. Used such setup many times, I liked it for its simplicity and ability to employ quickly.
In the end I made a hookah from a a 4HP aircooled diesel engine
with a beltdriven compressor
, and a remote
BTW I am not really a recreational diver, used it mostly on cleaning hulls, checking props or diving
