What’s on a Diver’s Back?
Most people are familiar with basic diving equipment such as masks, snorkels, and fins. But little is known about the life-support gear that divers are seen carrying on their backs. Including the oxygen tank, there are vital pieces of equipment needed:
Buoyancy Compensators(BCs) hold your peripheral gear in place, takes the load of the oxygen tank off of your back, and most importantly lets you achieve neutral buoyancy at any depth.
Regulators convert the tank air’s high-pressure into that of your surroundings allowing you to breathe it. It also delivers air to other places like your BC inflator.
