About Dive Alert Plus

DiveAlertPlus is a specially designed, small, light weight air horn that uses quick-connect/disconnect hose couplings to become an integrated part of your power inflator, breathable/inflator and buoyancy compensator Installation is easy and only takes a moment DiveAlert Plus does not require any modification of your other equipment, and it does not interfere with the normal operation of your other equipment DiveAlert Plus enables divers to signal both above and below the water's surface

There are three different models available; one for approximately 85% of standard power inflator mechanisms model DP1 There are several breathable/inflator mechanisms that require a larger coupling for a higher flow of air so there are two models to accommodate them The model DP2X and the modelDP3X (see list below)

Why have DiveAlert Plus? What would you do in a diving emergency if you needed to get the attention of the pick-up boat or someone else on the water's surface?Before DiveAlert Plus SCUBA divers had relied on whistles or a SMB (surface marker buoy) as their only signaling devices in such an emergency But if the diver is disabled and can't blow into a whistle (or deploy the SMB) the whistle makes no sound at all Or if the boat operator is not looking in the direction of a diver with a SMB deployed (if the diver was able to even deploy the SMB) the diver goes un-noticed

Or, what would you do if you wanted the attention of your dive buddy, for whatever reason, and he was simply distracted and not paying attention to you at that very moment? Traditionally, you would be forced to swim up to him or her until you got their attention In contrast, DiveAlert PLUS enables divers at the mere touch of a button to generate a loud blast of sound on the surface that can be heard up to a mile away! Or, by switching the DiveAlert PLUS diverter valve for subsurface signaling the diver can now signal for his dive buddy's attention underwater!

When you need to get someone's attention on the water's surface, you simply select "AIR" operation with your diverter valve, press the button and DiveAlert PLUS uses a small amount of air from your SCUBA tank to make a piercingly loud sound Or, when you want to get someone's attention under the water's surface, you simply select "H2O" operation with your diverter valve, press the button andDiveAlert PLUS uses a small amount of air from your SCUBA tank to make a percussion noise to alert your dive buddy

This is a perfect item, with the H2O feature, you can get your buddies attention easy, many reviews say it isn't loud enough, you must be freakin deaf...ease up on the IPOD sessions. I have never had any of my buddies unable to hear it. The air feature is great, we do a lot of spearfishing and it is perfect to signal the boat for a pick up when sharks are around, so you can keep your gun pointed below!

I had the Original Dive Alert and was very pleased with it. When I changed to a ScubaPro Air2 Inflater Regulator I has to get a new signal because the Air2 needs a Hi-Flow connector. I decided to "upgrade" to the Dive Alert Plus.

1. The construction is pretty flimsy and I am afraid it will eventually break apart with routine handling.

2. I have a harder time using this device than the original "Surface Only" Dive Alert as the ergonomics are poor. The device is fairly bulky and can also interfere with the use of the power inflater and alternate air source.

3. The real show stopper is how weak the underwater sound is. The underwater horn is really just a bubble-maker. A tank pinger makes a louder sound. If you want a well built air-powered underwater noise maker try an Aquatec Scub Alert Under Water Signaling Device (a quacker).

I plan to return this piece of junk and get an original Dive Alert.

      Comments about Dive Alert Plus:

      This device is very loud above water and good for signaling someone who is a good distance away. Underwater it is good for about 10ft. It helps get your dive buddies attention or a students attention under water. So far the contruction has held up well.

          Don't be dissuaded by the reviews this is a "must". I used this at least twice in Malaysia when dive master was unable to signal boat as his whistle was not effective in windy conditions. This is really loud on surface so you do need to warn divers close by. Underwater "quacker" is effective if divers not wearing a hood otherwise "rattle" is more effective.

          I am happy with this product have not had to use it in a real situation, have tested and was surprised at how loud the "air" selection was once the water was cleared. "Quacker" underwater works reasonably well but is only suitable for a range of 15 feet.

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            GEORGE W C  Works in the water as well as the surface
            Paula A  How loud is the underwater signalling device? We do survey dives where we can be up to 15m apart; right now we use the Scub Alert, which is sufficient for that distance and then attach a separate Dive Alert for above water, but that's too bulky so we wanted something more streamlined. But it needs to be loud enough underwater.-
            IVAN G  Sorry for the delay but I was on vacationes. This device works very good and the soun is very strong for me, and definitely is one of the best I ever used, you wont be dissapointed
            Christine P  I have a Zeagle Zena BCD with Flathead 6 reg and Octo ZX. Am I correct in thinking I need model #3?
            Monica s  Yes you are correct, for the Zeagle OctoZ you need model 3.
