5 Star wanted me to try out a new face mask with communications. The mask was too small, my teeth were on the microphone and no volume on the audible with the other diver was possible. I switched back to my PSD FFM and continued the tank cleaning. The pressure washer I was using had mechanical problems. I was switched to a brush and continued to clean on my first tank. My second tank I was given the second pressure washer and finished cleaning the right side of the tank in zero visibility.

During my rehab of my gear at home, I used a scale to calculate my weights that I am currently using.
In the saltwater I use 44 lbs of weight.
In fresh water I use 22Lbs of weight.
