    Like the non-user serviceability, counterlungs and RMS? :rofl3::rofl3::rofl3::rofl3::rofl3::rofl3::rofl3:

    Sell that POS and buy an SF2 already!

    I am going to run it into the ground before I am able to afford another unit. Until it dies or I hit the lottery, I am still logging the hours on it. I am just thankful mine is old enough to be analog and no RMS.

    TLA = Three Letter Acronym

    Even Three Letter Acronym has its own TLA

    Sorry, had to get that in. :)

    Not an acronym...but Lung butter...that nasty **** that builds up in the loop...it didn’t mysteriously get there by itself.

    Have you tried avocado toast drizzled with lung butter? It's actually not bad. A little tangy.

    What’s funnier is that you recommend an SF2

    Lime. In a bar it is a slice of green fruit that goes in some beers. In a rebreather it is yet another name for the CO2 scrubber media. Don't mix that up with the kitty litter, that doesn't go with beer that well.

    What is a Gag Strap? Is that the part of a RB divers gear that when missing ultimately leads to their ending up as a topic in the A&I forum?
