    Yes rinsing when you get home is fine. My garden hose does not reach my dive site 2 hous away so my gear waits 'til I get home :wink:

    It's amazing how little gear gets rinsed on most liveaboards. I do like to take a plastic tub or bag large enough to rinse my computers & cameras, and second stages. Wash all well when I get home.

    On topic: I usually rinse my suit, boots, hood, and gloves in the shower after a quarry dive. I don't rinse anything nonporous like my fins mask, or computer unless they are visibly dirty.

    Off topic: what quarry do you dive at? Sounds like Pennyroyal, which is also 30 minutes from me.

    boy did i learn my lesson about a year ago. After diving alabama bluewater, i drove one hour back home, left my gear in my truck, got up the next morning to drive back to albama bluewater for more diving. When i opened my truck door it smelled like a dead body was inside decaying, i almost hurled. I will always rinse and wash after every dive from now on.

    I like to rinse my puters and masks to prevent hard water buildup on the glass, clear plastic, and on the water activation contacts.
