Liz's post on upgrading her Aquatica spring set led to this post... My Aquatica housing is probably due for an overhaul. It has about 300 - 400 dives on it, although the vast majority of them are in clear, fresh water. I'd be interested in peoples' thoughts about tackling this myself, vs. sending it in. I'm pretty handy so the task isn't daunting at all, but I'm wondering if all controls can be be removed and replaced with out special tools. I seem to recall a friend did this himself and he said that he couldn't get to all the bits himself. I think it might be fun and also be a good way to learn more about the intricacies of the housing. On the downside, I don't have a chamber handy to test it afterwards! Thoughts?
As a follow up to all the techniques being shared on the "Housing rinsing techniques" thread... http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=51431 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.
