When you took dive lessons you learned to perform specific skills to make you safe and comfortable underwater and at the surface. One of those skills was Buoyancy Control. Once you start diving for fun you use your Buoyancy Control Devise constantly throughout the dive. Your Octopus or Alternate Air Source Devise on the other hand is never used unless there is an Emergency Out of Air Situation. Reacting properly in an Out of Air Situation can make the difference between a Safe Dive and a Tragedy. If your Alternate Air Source and your BCD Inflator Devise are one and the same you will always know where to find it in an emergency.
