dont forget to inflate the bladder.

not fully, just a little bit la.

and make sure the place u store tak de tikus or lipas. My rashguard got chewed on in one of the diveshops once upon a time dulu.

(Baru 1 trip pakai) :P

its all in the washing....rinse inner bladder, metal parts, corrugated hose, valves, inflator mechanism.

dry in a cool dry place....not under the sun....

after drying make sure no water left in bladder.

wrap with big black plastic garbage bag...
store in place with no sharp articles that can puncture the bladder.

u r not gonna use it for a while, but how long it that?

lets say:

kalau 1 tahun : hmm ..simpan macam mana diaorang cakap kat atas tu.
kalau lebih setahun : jual je bila dah lepas pakai tu... jual murah kat aku, then bila nak dive balik, beli yang baru.

kenapa kena jual:

- sebab nanti kalau simpan lama lama takut perut naik, bcd tak muat.
- simpan lama lama takut misplace.
- simpan lama lama nanti takut orang nak pinjam. nanti jadi harta wakaf.

hahaha..

:D

Lebih setahun kena tanya Cik Lara kita. Hari tu dia simpan setahun lebih sampai penuh sawang mengalahkan dalam cerita Indiana Jones. Nasib baik dia termakan racun kawan-kawan dan dive semula. Itu pun BCD dah kena buang.

For me, I soak the BC (and the rest of the gear) for a day or 2, then hang it dry. After that, still hang in in my room for another week, then I goes into my closet with the rest of my clothes. I also inflate the bladder half way.

nasi tambah skit...beside than that dun forget to rub away pasiaq pasiaq halus yang melekat kat BCD ( bladder ) tu dengan berus gigi terpakai /kasut terutama kat inflator hose inflate and deflate button,dump valve kalau ada dan masih berfungsi atau tak ( spray skit food grade lube atau spray dibahagian tersebut ), kalau agak lama tak pakai bukak connection male and female thread check dia punya rubber washer masih elok atau dah terbarai,ada setengah2 model yang boleh ditebalikkan rubber washernyer untuk penggunaan berterusan...untuk kasi bladder and plastic,rubber material tahan lama lagi polish lah dengan silicone atau teflon lube / spray untuk memulihara
bahagian tersebut.. ;)
