I have been thinking about this alot since someone from my hometown (Calgary) died in Mexico due to contaminated air (probably) Anyone else worry about their fill when in a remote area?

Not just remote area’s, LDS’s that get lax and/or cheap and I was on one respected liveaboard when a crew member didn’t install the filter properly, Captain caught it and flushed all of the tanks.

Scary. Ever think about buying a tester?

Analox makes a good CO tester. I carry Co- Pro in my kit.

is that a disposable one use? looks like a great idea

not a bad price to pay if you consider it will last probably a day of diving. To late for my Mexico trip. Wish me luck.

Very handy to have and easy to use, safe trip John!

it looks like it should be good for a year or two analox recommends the sensor be replaced every two years wonder how much that costs

Depends where you buy the sensor, last time I looked it was between $150 - $170, it’s really a good investment especially when it may save your life.
