STEPS FOR DISASSEMBLING YOUR DIVING EQUIPMENT

- Start the operation by closing your tank valve and then pressing the purge valve on your regulator in order to clear the system.
- Once you’ve checked that the pressure is at 0 using your pressure gauge, disconnect the inflator by pulling back on the ring.
- Whether you have a yoke or a DIN regulator, unscrew it to release it from the tank and remember to put the cap back on your 1st stage, to keep water out.
- Then release the strap that holds your tank on your buoyancy control device.
- After removing the BCD, remember to lay the tank down or to make sure that it’s tied securely on the boat.

            My father was a professional diver and in charge of the fire department diving team in Caen, France. This meant that I was lucky enough to be introduced to diving when I was only 8 years old. I qualified as an instructor when I was very young, and I’ve now been diving for 37 years! I have all of my FFESSM qualifications up to CMAS 1-star instructor, and I’m a PADI Divemaster.
