    Manual or E-CCR for first time CCR diver

    Does the lower setpoint cause the unit to fire eventhough it's being run manually to keep you from dropping to too low of a pO2

    Open to reasonable offers. This unit is comparable to a UV-26 in speed and range, probably a bit more range, and is half the weight. Very manageable, easy to ride.

    DAN CPR / Emergency Oxygen Class

    Is your CPR certification current?

    This is the hard to find 7/8" manifold with isolation plugs. The manifold is angled so if you run your sidemount tanks the Edd / CA way with the regulators down and the spg's lollipoped you won't...
