Hey everybody. My first DH just arrived. I'm so excited to begin this new adventure in diving after my time in the pool with my new Kraken. Thanks for having me. Ready to learn ! ImageImage

Welcome Scott!

That's an awful good looking reg you got there. Be sure and read up on proper positioning of the reg on your back. If this is the first time you are using a DH your idea to get in some pool or confined water work first is a good one. Build up to that 130' dive on Farnsworth Bank. :D Good luck. Ask questions. Mark

You should also look up the "how to install hoses on a DH reg" I posted a few years ago, it will help you get them aligned....and be sure the mouth piece is fully open, it was not available when I posted the thread but if it's open, the rest is the same.
