FAQ ABOUT REBREATHERS

Open circuit divers considering transitioning to closed circuit diving need basic information about rebreather equipment and safety, course descriptions, costs and logistics. Without getting bogged down in too much detail, the best place to start may be to read our article Closed-Circuit Rebreather Instruction.

Yes, we have diving grade oxygen sensors used in rebreathers, plus we have replacement analyzer oxygen sensors for a variety of nitrox analyzers. We also have an article on Oxygen Sensor Handling Best Practices.
Oxygen sensors and absorbent are some of the very few items on our website that are NOT returnable, because we can't know with absolute certainty how they were handled once delivered. Additional shipping and handling of the return can also degrade performance. These consumables are critical to safety in rebreather diving, and our customers have a reasonable expectation of receiving as factory fresh a product as possible from Dive Gear Express. Your complete satisfaction is our goal, so please consider carefully before purchase.

The digital solid state oxygen sensor (SSO2) is not a plug compatible replacement for the analog oxygen sensor and so currently only Poseidon devices can use the SSO2. To adapt the SSO2 to other brands of rebreathers would need a method to physically plumb the SSO2 in to the loop for monitoring using the Poseidon M28 dive computer, or a major revision to the rebreather controller electronics. For obvious reasons, Poseidon is not in a position to modify other brands of rebreathers. However, Poseidon is actively promoting their SSO2 technology to other rebreather manufacturers and we are aware that several rebreather manufacturers are looking at methods to provide one or the other solution, or both, as options.
