Diving regulators and their accessories are an essential item of dive gear. A diving regulator is a pressure regulator which changes pressurized breathing gas to the surrounding pressure and exchanges it to the diver effectively. Gas pressure diving regulators have a number of valves, which in turn reduce pressure in a controlled manner from the source, and so lower pressure at each stage.
It is often the case that divers prefer to own and use their own personal diving regulator. This is because the diver knows to what extent the diving regulator has been used and whether or not it has been serviced properly.
You will need to choose the coupling method to link your regulator to your cylinder valve, either DIN or A-Clamp. The choice of which is up to you but if you want to use high pressure cylinders of 300 bar rather than standard 232 bar you will need to select DIN.
All regulators will work in warm waters but if you plan on diving in colder waters (below 10°C) then you should select one that is cold water rated with an environmental seal or similar cold water system.
Remember you will need to have your regulators serviced every year with most regulators no matter how much you do or don't use them. In fact not using your regulators will mean they need servicing more than a set that is heavily used as they won't be lubricating themselves when not in use.
