Ahhh, yes, 60m.... I'm not sure I'd regain shape after a 60m dive  :crazy:

I was interested by the comments from eyu and Richard (the trickster) not the Stix floats.
 
I bought my Stix floats off a colleague of Ryan's when he visited KBR in 2010 - so then they were second hand. I must have done about 700-800 dives with them and haven't seen signs of post-dive compression or lack of buoyancy. Maybe I've just been lucky with them. They have probably never been below 32m but they are often in the 25m-30m range.

I've used Salt-x in the past.

 

I can't honestly say that I could see any difference between using that and warm water and white vinegar. And the white vinegar is easy to find in the supermarket and it's cheap. You can put the difference in price to a nice bottle of wine which you can drink whilst you clean your housing.

Hi katy-kid

 

Yeah, as Chris and r4e say, I'd be very wary of this unless you really know what you are doing.

 

A really good rinse and a longer one in warm water after a dive trip is about all I do. Much though I want my Subal to remain gleaming, I think you have to accept that the harsh conditions of salt water are going to leave their mark.
