Normal for wing to take in cup of water every dive?

    A suggestion, once you're finished up with diving for the trip, get as much water out of wing as possible and of course, manually blow up your wing, leave it expanded, bring it into your room to dry more before packing it the next morning. Am I right to assume that you aren't flying same day?

    Mine fills up with water on every dive because I often vent to stay on the bottom when I'm weeding out an invasive alga

    Hmm I wonder who that could be... :whistling:

    Thanks for the reminder to rinse my wings. I'm horrible at it.

    it's fairly normal, though maybe a sign you are adding/dumping more often than optimal

    I say that anecdotally, however
