Quarter Turn Back? An Exploded Scuba Cylinder Valve Explained. I have taken apart a cylinder valve so you can see the various parts and operation and so you can understand the correct operation for your scuba cylinder valve.
Lots of scuba cylinder valves get broken from misuse, so in this video, we’re going to go over the assembly of a scuba cylinder valve and the correct operation and maintenance schedule. Also, we are going to address the quarter turn back myth. Should you turn your valve handle a quarter turn back for scuba diving? Or is this a dangerous practice and if so, why?
If you work as a dive master or dive instructor, you probably handle dozens of scuba cylinders per day. Hopefully this video helps you prevent damage to you valves and gives you a better understanding of their operation.
As always, thanks for watching this quick tips video. Let me know in the comments what other topics regarding scuba gear, dive equipment or diving in general we should make!
