In Topic: Nauticam Vacuum valve - how much vacuum?

I believe you are overly concerned about this. We have Vivid units on our housings and use a small hand pump.

 I pump till I get a green light and then two extra strokes. We do this 1/2 hour before diving and as long as it stays green, then good to go.


Over pumping will eventually cause your housing to collapse and eventually get sucked up into the pump! :laugh:

In Topic: 1 Inch ball mounts o-ring size

From ULCS web page:

""BUNA O-Ring, Size 2-209." If you can not locate o-rings at a plumbing store then your local hardware store, Lowes, Home Depot, ACE, OSH sell them in one-packs from Danco # 95. (The size is 15/16 X 11/16 x 1/8)."

In Topic: air travel with strobes (air pressure effects)

05 February 2018 - 08:09 PM

Underwater equipment is designed with O rings/seals for a higher ambient(outside) pressure than internal. 

Air travel, even in pressurized planes results in a lower  than ground level pressure.

Consequently, you should always remove user accessed O rings.

Worst case condition you could pop a non accessable ring out of it's seat.
