    Im a hull diver. When I turn upside down and spider crawl my reg is taking on water. Ive tried to service like a regular scuba reg but it's nit working. Any suggestions?

    Look for a split in silicone mouth piece or crap on exhaust valve.

    What second stage are you using? Did it breath dry while upside down before?

    A lot of them breath a little wet when upside down. You may need to think about a side exhaust like a Hollis 500 or Poseiden, or maybe a full face mask if you are in dirty, oily water.
