Re: Isolation manifolds & modern DH extended range diving

Thank you. Doesn't sound like I would be happy with a manifold. Wish I could find a cheater bar rated for hp tanks. That is a bit of a concern when using my Fabers and the only reason I'm looking at other ideas. At least the regulator can offers a flack shield between the bar and myself.

This was an exceptional thread. I was not aware of the level of complexity and debate surrounding the use of a manifold for double tank usage.

This is a complex discussion because lots of people have different approaches, and also because technical diving is diving that is higher risk and more catastrophic when failures occur. I consider myself a relatively crazy guy. I was Army Airborne. I've been in combat. I've been shot. I'm not going to drown because of an o-ring though.

Really, what we actually need is a manifold that takes a double hose and can be isolated. This is a case where our limitation is the technology. Cave divers operated that way for years, and lots of them died because of it.
