Najibest...RM30K? Are you sure? :D

The CS Luna costs around RM100K each.

If you want one that costs US$700 million, call the US Navy. Those rebreathers are called nuclear attack submarines.

Rebreather is a device or tool that can bring you to depths with less tanks, and most importantly NO SOUND!! It was perfect to be used when playing with UW photgraphy...Talkign about rebreather, i remembered someone that owns a Rebreather asked me to buy this for his birthday present

http://www.ccrb.co.uk/introduction.html

perhaps need to sell car to get it....hehehe

Hi everyone,

Can I just ask whether it is safe to buy second hand rebreathers? Would it be worth if if you have to change some components and get it serviced? Or does it make more sense to buy new, like say from RecTec?

Good suggestion, Ozfish. Maybe we can have MUW organise campaign to buy that sub so we all can take turn to use...... :D :D :D  Ozfish, PM me the price...and see what asset I have to dispose to get it.... :D :D :D

Hey, last i recall, didn't the Dutch leave two subs behind for RMN at Lumut....Zwaardvis and Tijgerhaai...., maybe we can convert them to MUW 1 and MUW 2.  :P Sorry, mods, going off track... :P

The Drager is a semi-closed circuit rebreather.....very inefficient. THE rebreather to get for non-tech diving is the new Cis-Lunar MkVI, of which we have tons of photos and HD videos of including an exclusive interview with the designer.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the info on the Cis-Lunar MkVI. Any idea on the maintenance cost, how long the scrubber will last?

Every unit has its pros and cons.

A semi-closed rebreather is good for recreational diving. It may not be as efficient as a CCR would be, but the diver only needs to watch his depth mainly as the FO2 is constant, while on a CCR a diver has to watch his/her PPO2.  A CCR is a much more complex unit, and here in Malaysia, even CCR owners hardly dive them.  And when you don't have electronics for your CCR (maybe you're skint and can only afford an mCCR) then the lack of practise on the unit would be risky for lack of familiarisation. For a recreational diver, I would say a SCCR is good enough.

I would agree with SD about Pro n Cons with rebreather unit. They've so many unit out there in the market. either you can afford or not that a second question. The biggest concern is if you've enough dives under your belt to own one of the killer machine. Make a right decision before you heading to this road..

Hi,

It's not a killer machine unless in the hands of a killer :)

Just like a motorbike, it's the rider controlling the machine that kills himself/herself.

There's no doubt a higher risk in diving a rebreather, but those risks can be mitigated. ;)
