Any of you guys used this as a uw welding / broco starting rig we have obtained one on site and are considering using it as our main broco /welding power source to save having to tow a generator welder whenever we need it (our dive conainer is powered by a 3 phase genny) iv heard there are some potential safety concerns about using an inverter system can anyone elaborate or let me know where i can get some more info we will be using the rig for inshore construction projects to a max of 20m…See More

A.. Parnell replied to George Patterson's discussion bailout up or down
"Skylar, They use to run scuba tanks upside down on at least one model of the Scott Hydro Pac it was a full face rig in the mid 1950's to the 1960's. You could reach around and control the valve on that rig. Pretty cool rig the full face…"

PAISTE replied to George Patterson's discussion bailout up or down
"If you hat doesn't have a EGS valve (like the Gorski), you need to have it down.  If you have a leak, you can just shut the valve off at the bottle, get the dive done, and fix your leak later."

Shane "Bounty" Gardiner replied to George Patterson's discussion bailout up or down
"Personally I always have mine valve down but on at the bottle people say one more valve to turn but the way ive always seen it and stood stong on it is so the 1st stage is always charged and you know theres not severed or burst hose during the dive,…"

Adam D. Laurent replied to George Patterson's discussion bailout up or down
"Down! Always! It would be a shame to find a diver dead on bottom cuz they needed to go on bailout and the valve had accidentally been shut but they were unable to open it because they couldn't reach the valve....."
