About 7.25" Tank Boot with 5 LB.Weight

The patented Tank buoyancy Compensator (T B C ) is a supplementary, five pound ditch-able weight system that is located on the bottom of your scuba tank to offset the positive buoyancy affects incurred by air usage throughout a dive Often, the positive buoyancy generated by the diver's scuba tank will force the divers head down into the water, causing not only discomfort during the scuba dive, but creating a safety risk as well

The tank integrated design of the T B C provides a compact, streamlined, and safe weight system for strategically positioning ballast at a point that maximizes its effects while minimizing the risks encountered when using an un-weighted tank In many cases, a diver can reduce or in some cases eliminate the amount of weight on his or her belt or B C , thus increasing comfort and safety In additions to being the ultimate tank ballast system, the T B C doubles as a protective tank boot

The tank end mounted ballast system locates the weight in the most effective location, providing maximum balance while serving as a protector for the bottom of the tank With the new back floatation buoyancy Compensators the problem of staying upright on the surface is reduced by having the weight located at the bottom of your tank This causes your body to become more upright on the surface of the water thus promoting comfort and safety

Several models on the market use weights that are fixed to the upper third of the tank's exterior diameter which does not locate the weight in the most effective location for ballast purposes nor does the mounting method allow the weight to be released in an emergency Furthermore, divers utilizing current systems would still need to purchase tank boots to protect the bottom of their scuba tank Although other devices exist and the Tank buoyancy Compensator is a new product in an already equipment intensive sport, the benefits obtained by its design far outweigh anything currently available

        This product functioned exactly as advertised. It was very easy to install on my tank and I had no issues with it during my dive. I did a cold water dive with a drysuit and it made a noticeable improvement in keeping me horizontal. I plan on taking it with me on my Florida dive vacation.

        Comments about Aqua 7.25" Tank Boot with 5 LB.Weight:

        This is a very good product for someone who needs a lot of weight. I dive in Michigan, where the water is cold, and I wear a lot of neoprene. That tends to increase my bouyancy quite a bit, so I regularly dive with a lot of weight. Using this boot enabled me to take some weight off my belt, which was quite nice.

        On the downside, the pin holding the weight does not stay in too well while I am on the surface. I didn't have a problem underwater (yet), but it seemed that the weight was falling off quite a bit on dry land. I'm hoping that this will not be a problem underwater, because it would be a shame to lose 5 pounds in the middle of a dive when I might need it later.
