Re: Hookah vs Scuba dive kit.

I've been diving for 40+ years and hate using a hookah system. I use a pony bottle when I clean the bottom. and still come up with plenty of air. Hookahs are more trouble than there worth.

Re: Hookah vs Scuba dive kit.

I've been diving for 40+, I clean the bottom using only a pony bottle and come up with plenty of air left. Hookahs are more trouble than there worth, personally I hate then damn things.

Re: Hookah vs Scuba dive kit.

Working in a dive shop, getting air has not been a problem. I guess in some cases a hookah might be an advantage, but not in my case. I still hate the dam things

Yeah, unlimited free air really sucks. Who would want that?
