SCUBA Air Singapore

Post by jackXX » Sat, 12 Dec 2009 12:11 pm

I'd like to buy air fill for cylinders. I've been to a number of dive equipment shops, many do not sell air, many say they buy air from a guy name of DiverAir. I call DiverAir number, no one answers.

Please, tell me where I may go with a cylinder and buy air on the spot.

Thanks Dave for the reply.

The number you posted is the one I have dialed repeatedly.
However, after your post I dialed it again and DiverAirMan answered straightaway. Go figger.

Thanks for your pointer.

Actually it's Neoprene, not rubber. I was just 'aving fun. I have 45 years of SCUBA and 20 years of commercial hardhat (retired) experience. :cool:

AAhhhhh! The practicality of commercial diving. Why on earth would a SCUBA diver dive in contaminated water? (Just curious).

The only time I ever used SCUBA in contaminated water was doing wheel jobs on ships/tugs. If I had to die in contaminated waters, I would use a dry suit or for that matter a wetsuit made of neoprene (well taped), we just trash the suits and bill the client to replace them. But to voluntarily dive in SCUBA gear in contaminated water, where it's possible to have the ingress of the stuff around your mouthpiece or possibly have a mask dislodged? Nah. Doesn't seem like a safe diving option to me. But there you go. I'm still around to talk about it. :wink:

I was brought into the industry with the old adage, "There are old divers and there are bold divers, but there are damn few old, bold divers." :cool:
