Safety Notice RE: Aqua Lung

Aqua Lung Regulator Safety Problem

Do you have one of those Aqua Lung regulators with that Auto Closure Device or ACD? That’s the feature that allows you to rinse your first-stage without the blanking cap in place and without getting water in the works. Well, Aqua Lung is concerned that a component may not have been properly tightened resulting in a possible gas-flow failure during a dive. Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary product check of regulators with the ACD yoke systems. Models affected are the Titan LX with serial numbers prefixed E or F, the Core ACD with serial numbers prefixed E – H, and the Legend ACD or Legend LX ACD. If you have one of these regulators, best get it checked out by a qualified Aqua Lung service technician in New Jersey. For additional assistance, please call 800-775-3483 or visit www.aqualung.com and click on the Safety Notice.

Benefits of Scuba Diving

We all know that scuba diving is a very enjoyable and relaxing sport, but did you know that it is truly good for your health…mind, body and soul? Whether you are a beginner recreational diver interested in seeing the beautiful reefs of the sea, or an experienced deep sea diver who travels to depths seldom seen by the human eye, scuba diving can provide numerous benefits. Of course if you want more specific benefits as improve your uric levels, people often take a uric acid support for this, that is a supplement you can purchase online at different sites.

Here are the Top 10 from Health Fitness Revolution and author of the book ReSYNC Your Life Samir Becic:

Physical fitness: Swimming is one of the best modes of aerobic and anaerobic work we can do. It provides both a cardiovascular workout and a muscular workout as we move against the natural pressure of the water on our bodies with little to no strain on our joints, and this take energy to develop this sport, many people that practice this take supplements for the energy, from information sites as in this ArcticBlast review.
Flexibility and strength: Your muscles also work harder underwater as you move against the resistance of the current and the water itself. With this, you strengthen your muscles as well as develop your flexibility and endurance. Like swimming, which builds up the muscles in your thighs and shoulders, diving can help tone your different muscle areas, consequently giving you better posture.
Healing effects of water: One other little known benefit to being at depth is a healing factor. This was demonstrated and experienced by researchers that remained in an underwater habitat for several weeks. The human body uses oxygen to repair cuts and tears that we may get in different tissues within our body.
Breathing: Slow, deep breathing is important in scuba diving to optimize air consumption and bottom time. An added bonus is that deep, steady breathing promotes a calm attitude and reduces the risk of a lung-expansion injury.
Stress reliever: Similar to breathing during meditation, breathing slowly and deeply while diving induces a calm, relaxed state while the diver focuses on the underwater environment rather than thinking about problems they may be experiencing in daily life. This helps to reduce stress and balance the nervous system. A relaxed, calm state of mind has been proven to promote a positive attitude and prevent depression.
Social health benefit: When you dive, you meet other like-minded people that share that common interest. It’s easy to make friends among divers as you will find a sense of community among them. It’s an exhilarating feeling to surface from a dive full of wonderful memories of your experience and then to be able to talk about and share them with good companions who are just as excited as you are!
Travel to warm climates: They say that travel is the best form of education and most people relish in the experience of visiting new places, experiencing a different culture, and all the new sights and smells and tastes that go with it. Dive travel abroad also means you are likely to meet fun people from all over the world with whom you have a common interest.
Sunlight: One of the most important benefits of sunlight is that it supplies the body with vitamin D, which promotes the absorption of calcium in the body and is also responsible for the transference of calcium within the cells. This provides strength to the bones and increases endorphin production in the brain, which contributes to a healthy nervous system.
Improve blood circulation: While working all your body muscles simultaneously during a dive, you also give yourself a full cardiovascular workout. The muscles used require oxygen, so your blood vessels open for improved circulation to supply the needed oxygen.
Reduce blood pressure: Related to exercising your circulatory system, diving can also help lower blood pressure. There are studies reporting that those who dive on a regular basis are less likely to be prone to strokes and heart attacks.
