What to do when your goggles are filled with water when diving?

Many new diver have difficulty cleaning glasses during diving. Usually when you study the basic diving course (Open Water Diver) you often rush through this skill in the hope that you won’t have to do it again. In fact, this is the skill you use the most when you go diving. Here are some ways to make cleaning your glasses easy and fast.

Breathe with your nose and look up

When cleaning the water in the glasses, you must create a pressure by breathing hard with your nose; Airflow from your nose will push the water out of the glasses. Press lightly on the upper part of the eyeglass, the purpose is to seal the upper rim of the eyeglasses with your forehead while creating an opening below so that the water can run out of the glasses.

You also need to look up a little bit so that the water flows down below the glasses and easily goes out when you do this.

Always remember that this glasses cleaning process may take several times. So just do the right way you learned. Breathe in through your mouth and breathe hard with your nose until your glasses are completely clear of water.

Do not leave the lower part of the glasses opened

If you are swimming snorkeling with water on your glasses, your natural reflexes will probably bring your head out of the water then use your hands to open the lower part of the glasses to let the water out. This will be useless when you are under water. If the lower part of the lens is exposed, water will settle in your glasses. This is very annoying because the water will enter your nose and it will make you feel that you cannot clean the water in the glasses, then you are more likely to be nervous and panic.

Always remember that when diving, water can get into your nose a little but it’s okay to apply the above methods when cleaning the water from the diving glasses. When the water is no longer inside the glasses you will be comfortable diving and exploring the colorful underwater world.

Scuba diving- Control the buoyancy

Scuba diving- Control the buoyancy

Weightless state.

The art of diving is to achieve perfect weightlessness. That means controlling your buoyancy – hovering, not floating or falling down and can move in any direction you want with minimum effort. That’s all scuba diving has and is called neutral buoyancy. To achieve this, you need to be “weighing” your weight accurately. They must match your equipment, the clothes you wear as well as the water environment where you dive.

Balance your weight.

The ideal weight you need to achieve is that when standing in the water with an upright position, you will float with medium-sized eyes on the water while your air tank is full and your lungs are full of air.

When floating in this way, you will begin to sink when breathing out. Breathing in from the regulator will make you rise to your previous position. You will never be sunk like a stone. This simple test takes into account the amount of air you will consume when diving. At the end of the dive, with an empty cylinder, you will notice that when you hit the lungs, your chin and shoulders will be visible on the water.

It can be seen that many inexperienced divers have a non-horizontal swimming posture, which is half a straight up front. This means he carries too much gravity, or there is not enough air in the BCD. These people swim in an upright posture because most of them try to pedal their legs to maintain depth rather than to advance in the horizontal direction.

If your buoyancy is almost standard, when you swim in the horizontal direction, if you want to have a body posture like standing up, you just need to raise your head up.

When it emerges, the air in the BCD will expand with a decrease in depth and you may be at risk of being unintended. The rule of good buoyancy control is to use a minimum of gravity (lead weights) in combination with a minimum of gravity compensation air in BCD.
