- I was testing out my Voit Navy yesterday in the pool and there was a metallic ringing noise when I inhaled vigorously. My first thought was, "What now?". Because I had just re-built the Voit in an attempt to correct a honking noise it was making when inhaling. Now, the honking was gone and replaced with a different noise: Kind of a ringing that was resonating inside the scuba tank.
- Rich suggested it might be the tank valve and not the regulator. So, I tried a different regulator and sure enough I was getting the same sound. So then I tried pulling the J-Rod and sure enough, the sound went away. Pushed up again and the noise returned.
- We found that it got noisier as the tank got closer to empty... Less vigorous breathing brought it on.
- I'm planning to take the valve apart now that the tank is empty. If anyone has experienced this before, I'd appreciate some suggestions as to what needs fixing inside the valve to make the noise go away.
