Hi all fellow divers ..? Any body can share what is the sign to use when you are reaching DECO limit.? Assuming you wanted to share your status to a buddy or DM.

Tks all!

i normally just show my DC and the time with my fingers. Just like how u show your gauge bar/psi. I wont bother buddy or DM if i still have 15-20min before DECO at depth 30m+.
When i do deep diving i will ascend each 3m when i am about to DECO +-5min.
so Point  to DC and show how many time to deco.
Well i dont know what the actual universal sign but it seems that all the divers i've dive with seem
to understand my sign.

tks runny . i have experience dm got a little pissed fining all the way towards you just to look at your dc. and if your pressure gauge reads 1000psi ...more pissed !!!!!!!!!

that's the reason i am searching for some hand language to display the "low on DC time" ! Tks anyway!
