This product it’s excellent for underwater, you can make noise and all the divers around can hear you and any fish get scare for the noise. But on the surface it’s not that loud, that’s the only problem that it has.

I am a full time SCUBA instructor that dives almost daily. I like an air powered underwater horn to obtain the attention of wandering students. The underwater noise level on this device is so low, that divers simply ignore it. What I need is a Hammerhead. I used a Hammerhead for years. Rebuilt it several times. Unfortunately the company no longer makes it and mine finally fell apart. To bad a company does not reproduce the quality and noisemaking ability of the Hammerhead. Do not spend [$] on this Aquatec alert device. A tank banger works as well

About Me Professional
Comments about Aquatec Scub Alert Under Water Signaling Device, Fits Scuba Pro Air 2 & Tusa Duo-Air IR-3, Atomic SS-1 (SA-3), Zeagle Octo-Z:
Years ago my instructor had a similar "quacker" It worked very well and got my attention every time. Now that I'm an instructor I wanted one to use with my students. This is a really poor underwater noise maker. It makes a decent quack on the surface, but under water sounds like a wet fart. I could barely hear it myself, and I knew it was being pushed. My students couldn't hear it 5 feet away. Maybe I got a bad one, as there are some good reviews on this, but if you're a professional looking for an underwater signal, I'd look elsewhere.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not so loud on the surface

I purchased this product because it was supposed to have dual use - below surface and on surface as an emergency signal. It’s not very loud on the surface. Works as advertised submerged with the quacking sound, but doesn’t work as discussed in the reviews in both applications. I doubt a boat could hear me beyond 30 yards.

I bought two of them. Tried one several times during dives underwater. My wife could not hear it from 10 feet away. Totally useless.
