I’m due for the first dive of the new year this weekend and my shop didn’t have the HP Steel 100s I usually dive with so I’ve got LP Steel 108s.
First question, I usually dive to about 900 PSI before ascending. Since I’m starting out at 2400 PSI should I adjust that number? It seems to me that it should use the same 900 PSI, but since I’m new to the tanks, I just want to confirm so I don’t leave too much air in the tank or even worse, risk not having enough for a safe ascent.
Second, these are much larger and seem heavier to me, should I be adjusting weighting?
And yes, I did ask the shop these questions and they did give me an answer, but I figured the collective knowledge of the Internet might give me a clearer answer. And to be honest, I’ve gotten bad or at the least, incomplete answers from pros in the past.
