16 Discussion Questions/Review
List some of the features that can be found on a buoyancy compensator. Describe how a two stage regulator works. In addition to the second stage, what other items can be attached to the first stage of the regulator? What gauges should the diver have in order to dive safely? Explain the difference between a “ J" Valve, a "K" Valve, and a "DIN" Valve. What are the two types of scuba cylinder inspections, and how often should they be performed? Describe how a dive partner might perform a pre-dive safety check. Describe how a diver clears water from the mask. In an effort to establish positive buoyancy, how would a diver release his weight belt in the water? 2-16

17 Summary Public Safety Diving is a rewarding activity once you begin to get comfortable with the necessary techniques and equipment. Getting to know your team’s equipment, training with it and the proper organization and care will all lead to a more efficient and effective diver and dive operation. 2-17
