Backup reg hose length standard

Post Number:#1  Postby superkingkong » Sat Jul 28, 2007 10:02 am

hey guys,

read it somewhere that... the sort of standard is 22"

but i saw quite a few ppl complaining that it's too short.... they can't even turn their head to the left.. and some worst.. they have to stick their head to the right in order to breath from the 2nd reg.

is it too short for u guys? or do u use a longer length?

cheers

What configuration are you talking about? Twin sets? Single?

Even on twin sets I have had no problems whatsoever with breathing through my secondary regulator. I just add something to hang the regulator from my neck. Standard length hoses. Unless you have your cylinders upside down.

I find the 22" falls short for comfort, so I change the whole system configuration ..... hehehehehee.

Apply Technical Diving Reg. Set-Up for recreational diving too.

Bear in mind hose routing options are constraint by the location of ports on the first stage. This issue is more apparent when using twin-sets, not so for singles. If you can, use the ports that will give you the most direct hose routing. The objective is not to have big loops of hoses behind your head which will raise risk of entanglement.

To sum up, 22" is adequate with the right first stage. Which is why DIR promotes the use of specific brands....

For the proper DIR Double setup or Single setup.

Here the right length for the hoses selection.

One 7ft( 2mtr) regulator hose for the primary regulator.

One 22" or 24" Low pressure hoses for the alternate regulator (necklace) standard from manufacture is 30' too long for necklace.

One 22 " for the BCD hoses.. also from the manufacture is little too long. But Who ever buy the Halcyon, Agir Brook or DSS Wing come with right setup.

One 24" High Pressure hose for the SPG.


For the stage setup is

40' LP for the regulator hose. and 6 ' HP hoses for the 2' gauge (No console) and has to be plastic gauge like a Suunto gauge( preferable) Scubapro also sell one.

Equipment can go to those depths, but your body might not be able to..
