All Cave Diving Equipment You Should Have

Cave diver needs equipment different from those open-water diver or cavern diver. Cave diver carries redundant equipment during their dive. It is really needed for cave divers to bring extra for every equipment they bring. It is to make sure that they will still have a replacement if ever they encounter a failure and to ensure their safety on going back to the surface.

All Cave Diving Equipment You Should Have 1

If you are into cave diving, you must always remember that safety always comes first. You must be responsible for your safety, as you were told. All equipment is important may it be the little ones or the big ones, so always make sure to bring extra.

Also, cave diving is for those who undergo a training for cave diving, so if you really want it to go on a training first and that’s the time, you should learn what the needed equipment for cave diving is.

There is a big difference between cave diving and lake or ocean diving. In cave diving, there will be more physical barriers that you will encounter, which can possibly give you a problem. Without proper cave diving equipment, there is no way you could go diving.

To let you know what equipment you need to prepare for cave diving, below is a list of the most important equipment needed in this extreme activity. Now let’s see what equipment you must bring.

The first one on the list is a drysuit. It is needed for diving into the cold water. The drysuit is made using watertight latex seals and laminated waterproof material. Having watertight latex seals, it ensures you to not a loss so much body heat that you really need when you are diving.

These suits have pockets for carrying other safety equipment. If you want, you can wear undergarments so you could get thermal protection when you are underwater. Drysuits will be beneficial to withstand advanced cave diving. Drysuit will keep you warm while you are in a very cold water for a long time.

This material comes in double-layered with a little bit of space in between for insulating air. This keeps you to have a direct contact with the water, which will give a large thermal comfort for you.

Also, it will prevent possibilities for you to have scratches or mechanical damages underwater, most specifically when you dive on a narrow cave full of rocks and reefs. With drysuit, you can freely move into the water because it does not run directly into your body, which is a very important in a long diving activity. The drysuit gives more buoyancy compared to wet suits.

It can also serve as an emergency source for buoyancy when the main source of buoyancy had failed. A drysuit is easy and faster to wear.

Two, the mask. It is highly preferred by many divers to use a mask made from a black silicone skirt. It is preferred by most cave divers because it has a light-absorbing quality or ability of black color. The black color is very convenient since it any distracting light that can possibly leak into your mask.

You can use a combination of any streamlined design with a great vision and volume, just like most of the masks. Using this mask, you will have a lesser overall weight, which will help to dilate your eyes. This practice is commonly followed by so many cave divers.

As an addition, divers also use nylon-made hoods in order to protect their heads from possible leakage and damage during diving. Bringing a spare mask is highly recommended when cave diving.

Three, the fins. The fins you will use should not be hinged or split fins. It will only cause your problem. What you need are powerful and flat-bladed fins that have less potential for intricacy and probably can help facilitate from kicking as well as with some specialized techniques.

You should use black rubber fins and the one that is not that flexible. It is highly because cave divers already bring extreme loads while diving. With the fins being light and a little stiff, it will be able to work better.

You will need to use a short controlled kick when you move on the water so that you could avoid stirring up anything, like sediments, on the floor of the cave you went in. Stiff fins allow you to move easily on the water even with those heavy loads you bring for diving.

Fins do not need high maintenance, and you only need to rinse it using freshwater then let it dry before storing it. Remember to store this fins dry to avoid molds getting onto it. Short and stiff fins provide you decent control as well as compactness. Fins have rubber straps on the fins which are frequently substituted using stainless-steel springs, which are covered with plastic tubing, making the fins stronger.

Four is the timer. The time comes together with a depth gauge when a cave diver carries it during the diving. The device allows you to calculate the amount of decompression that stops while you are on your way up to the surface after the end of the dive and it uses a standard decompression table.

You can combine all other information into the dice computer that will surely show the time, depth, and decompression stops. The timer is essential for caving diving helps specifically with monitoring and records. The timer gives the signal for decompression because most caves require more decompressions than others.

Five, the tanks. This equipment serves as the heart of any cave diver. Two tanks are being held together securely using steel bands and the manifold that is being connected. The manifold holds two outlets, an, and those can be turned on and off separately in case you would be experiencing any problem underwater.

Six, the regulator. You need two different first-stage balanced regulators. This primary cylinder means that you will have two first stages with a one-second stage where the first stage configuration of the port needs a proper routing of the hose to be mounted on the side of the back part.

This equipment comes with the tank, being used to lessen pressurized breathing gas, encompassing pressure and bring it to divers. You cannot guarantee tanks to work well without using the regulator. Still, you should know how to adjust the regulator’s valve in order for you to reduce the pressure.

Without this one, you cannot breathe air from your tank if you are to choose a diving regulator, to make sure that you choose the best one which could give you the highest level of comfort and a very good performance for your own needs.

Seven, the Deco bottles. You must use a deco bottle that contains oxygen if you are going to do a full cave diving course. If you are a student, you will be needing at least 11 liters or 80 cubic or foot of this stage bottles at the very least. Basically, it is used for certain depths, which helps you off-gas the loading of nitrogen from the dive.

Eight, the Wing. This wing is also called the buoyancy compensation, which is being attached to the tank. This goes as an airtight bag, which you can inflate for you to get the buoyancy. The valves will allow the air to be injected out from the tanks or into the diver’s mouth in order to be able to increase or t decrease the buoyancy.

Nine, the Harness and Backplate. The backplate on the tank and the harness bolt are the two equipment that will hold the wings into the position. Webbing threads through the backplate makes up for the harness, and that will help on holding the equipment firmly onto the diver securely.

Ten, the Primary Lights. LED is the primary light you need in cave diving. It has a 1000+- lumen. If not, you can have those with 2000 lumen or more because it would be better. This can be bought anywhere.

A hand mount or also called a good-man style should always be included to the light. You will need a separate battery canister for all the primary light that you will bring in cave diving. That canister will connect to a light using a cord.

Eleven, the Backup Lights. Even if you have primary light, you will still need to bring backup lights. A self-contained light is necessary that can be kept on the back of your hand.

For the backup lights, you will need at least two LED lights. You should remember that buying cheap lights which are made of plastic bodies is not advisable to do, and you must always buy the lights that are designed specifically for this activity, the cave diving.

Twelve, the Sharp Knife. You need to attach some short and, at the same time sharp knife into your harness. This will surely help you to cut yourself free from entanglement onto the other equipment or the guidelines.

Any cave divers will do this because bringing a sharp knife would be beneficial to you once you go diving. This is a usual thing to do for divers, keeping a sharp knife with them, which is very handy and another one to be attached to the handle of the light head.

Thirteen, the Pools and Reels. A diver needs two safety reels with a length of at least 150ft or 45m. Pools on the other are convenient for managing the short length of the guidelines.

Still, many cave divers think that reels give a much better of the line with 30ft or 75m or more. Divers having two safety reels, your team will be needing one primary reel with a sufficient line which should start from the cave’s entrance until the next permanent line of at least 250ft 0r 75m.

Reels are used for a searching of a lost guideline or if one of your fellow divers is lost and most probably to repair any damage in your guidelines.

Fourteen, the Wet Notes. Instead of bringing slates which are good for tech diving, you can just bring wet notes as an alternative because slates are not good for cave diving.

This wet note should be kept in your thigh pocket. You won’t need it most of the time, but you will need it if you get screwed up because of some circumstances while you are diving. These are used for not only one purpose, but for several.

Those purposes are, used for communication, for recording reference information during the time of diving, navigation for inside the cave, or even in the analysis after diving and planning for the next diving activity.

Lastly, number fifteen, the Surface marker buoy. You really need Surface marker buoy or SMD technically if you are learning cave diving. Bring with you the type of SMB which can be inflated into the water through the use of exhaust from your regulator.

So that is the list of the basic equipment you will need for your cave diving activity. You must make sure to have all these completely before you go diving. The primary light, backup lights, sharp knife, reels, and wet notes are equipment categorized as safety equipment.

In addition to safety equipment, you should also bring with you directional and non-directional markers. You will use directional markers to point the nearest exit on the cave while you will use the non-directional marker to several purposes like marking the entrance route. Arrows serve as the directional markers and circles are used to be the non-directional marker.

DIVER PROPULSION VEHICLES or DPVs is an equipment used for cave diving if you want to go under in a fast motion. This equipment is perfect to use for cave penetration, which goes up to two kilometers. If you want to do a longer penetration, then you should add up a 2 to 3-stage tanks while you tow a 2nd scooter behind you.

With that, you could penetrate up to 5 km deeper. Yet you should remember to have a sufficient amount of gas you need when you need to ascend to the surface of the water. DPVs are only used when you need to cover a very long distance or when you have a lot of heavy equipment to bring. This equipment is surely fast, with a speed of up to 50-60 meters per minute.

Cave diving is different from other diving. That is why this equipment is very important to your diving activity. You should also never forget that bringing extras of that equipment is highly recommended.

This is very important if you don’t want a negative result for your diving experience. When you are going to purchase this equipment, be sure to buy the ones with the best quality and high level of performance.

The training you will do for cave diving will help you to get the skills needed for a cave diver. These skills are Proper Trim, Frog Kicking, and Gas Management Rule of Thirds.

If you are skilled with proper trim, then you have the capability to do a perfectly horizontal body position. This position is like you were laying on your stomach over a platform that is invisible. Aspiring this skill lets you minimize the drag.

Stirring up sand, the slit, and other bottom sediments are avoided when you keep your fins slightly elevated. When you are able to practice proper frog kicking, then you will be more balanced and much more comfortable while swimming because frog kicking won’t rock you from side to side. This is suitable for diving sites with those silty floors just like a wreck.

But remember that frog kick is only essential with blade fins or turtle fins. There are four basic steps to do the frog kicking. First is the starting position, you should be relatively flat in the water and your knees bent in an upward 90 angle, while the fins must be parallel to the floor with the knees and ankles being together.

Step two is the open the fins, and it is a step in which you should open the fins to the side after the starting position. And the third step is the thrust, and now you will have the forward motion of the kick when you push the two balls of your feet and bringing your fins and the bottom of your feet together behind you. And last is the glide, and this is the best part of the glide.

This extreme sport is for those who seek for thrilling activities. In cave diving, your first-hand experience and see things that cannot be seen on the outside environment on the earth.

Things, living or not which will get your attention and make you believe that there are still things a man should discover. Nevertheless, you will experience an adventure that is risky but will surely never disappoint you by any means.
