I've told this story before so forgive me if you've heard it....captain wrote: Initial cost is high but freedom from dive shops is priceless.
Reputable manufacturers know what compression ratios, cooling, moisture/oil separators, oil and filtration is required to produce breathing quality air. The machines will do so if their operating instructions are followed and no unauthorized modifications have been made to the equipment. Deviations from proper operating parameters or component substitutions and modifications are the usual causes for poor air quality or even high pressure accidents.slonda828 wrote:Do you guys test you air?

I think that both TRI and TRACE ANALYTICS in Texas have special rates on quarterly testing for PADI (and maybe other) facilities. I'm not aware of any specials for individual instructors, but you can get usually friendly and helpful answers to most of your air testing questions by calling them direct. I have used both labs extensively for testing fire department air systems quarterly, just switching to TRI at the first of this year for ease of tracking clients records only... absolutely no problems with Trace either. You may be required to purchase or rent the test equipment from either.Bryan wrote:I was paying $75.00 quarterly to have my air analyzed.....BUT there was another company I talked with at DEMA last year that would do SCUBA air for $45.00....For the life of me I can't find their info but I'm sure Google can.
