Whether you are interested in a short, comfortable dive or face long decompression obligations, the Halcyon Balanced Streamline P-valve can provide a new level of diving comfort. Sleek design eliminates bulky connections. Valves chosen to provide minimal backpressure, increasing comfort for female and male divers. The OMS P-valve is designed to have the balance valve removed and replaced with a waterproof and pressure proof blank. This also allows the diver to clean and rebuild the valve when necessary but still keep the dry suit in service. Standard Halcyon P-Valve connector without quick disconnect option.
Introduction to the Drysuit P-Valve • Scuba Diver Life
I somehow managed to make it through 5 years of technical diving without finding the need to install a P-valve in my dry suit. Towards the end of a 3. At that moment, my instructor told me to tie off for a lost diver drill. All I could do was respond by raising the appropriate finger to him, shaking my head violently and signaling that we needed to abort. The whole way out I could hear him laughing hysterically, and I knew it was time to install a P Valve.
A common dive saying states that there are two types of divers: those who pee in their wetsuits and those who lie about peeing in their wetsuits. But you can add two more types of diver to that list: those who pee in their drysuit — hygienically via a p-valve — and those who hold it at all costs. What is a drysuit p-valve and how does it work? Numerous companies supply p-valves.
