Housings and hydrogen sulfide

17 December 2013 - 04:34 PM

Does anyone have experience taking their housings and strobes through hydrogen sulfide layers? I was recently diving through a layer of hydrogen sulfide and it had quite the affect on various metals in my gear: my drysuit zip changed colour from silver to bronze, my silver pressure gauge is now dark grey/black, the burst disks on the scuba tanks even darkened. I was wondering if I took my camera gear (Sealux housing with Inon strobes) through the stuff what might happen.

One of my cave diving photos has been selected as a finalist in the Santi Photo Awards.

Based on the first day of voting I'm not going to win. But if you want to throw a vote my way perhaps I won't come in last either. :-) You can vote once per day for the next eight days. There are some nice underwater images to look at there.

Housing care - post rinse

07 October 2013 - 06:10 AM

As a follow up to all the techniques being shared on the "Housing rinsing techniques" thread...

I was wondering if people would mind sharing housing care techniques for after you've rinsed. Do you dry off your ports? Do you disassemble and store, or if you're diving again in a week do you leave it all together? How often do you attend to orings?

 

I really appreciate everyone sharing. When you're not surrounded by underwater photographers on a day to day basis like me, this is a great way to pick up some tips and learn from the experiences of others.
