About Dive Alert PLUS v.2

Why use DiveAlert PLUS?

What would you do in a diving emergency if you needed to get the attention of someone else? Above or below the water's surface!

Traditionally, SCUBA divers have relied on whistles as their only audible surface signaling device. But, if a diver is disabled and can't blow into the whistle, the whistle makes no sound at all. Equally frustrating and dangerous, if a diver needs to attract the attention of someone who is too far away to hear the whistle, the whistle is of no help.

Or, what would you do if you wanted the attention of your dive buddy underwater, 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.

Instead, using the DiveAlert PLUS a diver on the surface can sound a horn blast that can be heard up to a mile away! Or, DiveAlert PLUS can signal a dive buddy underwater!

DiveAlert PLUS is a small and lightweight pneumatic signaling device that harnesses the power of compressed air in your scuba tank to produce a distinctive sound both above and below the surface. Using quick-connect/disconnect couplings, DiveAlert PLUS becomes an integrated part of the power inflator on your BCD.

DiveAlert PLUS does not require any modification of your other equipment, and it does not interfere in any way with the normal operation of your other equipment.

When you need to get someone's attention while on the surface, you simply squeeze DiveAlert PLUS and it diverts a small amount of air from your scuba tank to make a powerful and piercing sound. Or, when you are underwater and want to attract attention, squeeze DiveAlert PLUS and it diverts a small amount of air from your scuba tank to make a buzzing noise to alert your dive buddy.

Details on using DiveAlert PLUS

INSTALLATION - DiveAlert PLUS connects between the power inflator and the low-pressure hose by means of its quick-connect/disconnect hose fittings.

OPERATION - Once the tank is turned on and the DiveAlert PLUS connected, squeeze DiveAlert PLUS a little underwater for a subsurface signal or squeeze it a little harder on the surface for a loud surface signal blast.

Just make sure that before every dive you check that DiveAlert PLUS is installed correctly and functioning properly. Also be careful not to point DiveAlert PLUS toward yourself or toward anyone who is in close proximity to you when you activate the surface signal or loss of hearing could result.

MAINTENANCE - After each use, DiveAlert PLUS should be rinsed with fresh water. This is especially important after use in chlorinated swimming pools and in other water having corrosive substances. Additionally, it is highly recommended that you blow the water out of DiveAlert PLUS before storing. This can be done by pressurizing and activating both the surface and subsurface signaling elements. We recommend that you cup your hand over the surface signaling element to muffle the loud noise.

Athough marketed as compatable with Oceanic Air XS 2, the male inlet fitting could not be locked into the supply hose that came with the Air XS 2. Dive Alert responded with great help and ultimately shipped me a replacement female fitting for the hose which screws onto the end of the hose after unscrewing the one that came with the hose supplied by Oceanic. I am still a big fan of DiveAlert. Give yourself time to sort out this issue before using it to go diving. I would rate the item as 5 stars but for this issue.

I think something like this should be required equipment for every diver, but having bought 2 of the v2's (I thought I just got a defective one the first time), they haven't gotten the combined underwater/surface signal with-one-button right on this new version yet. The underwater signal blows just air most of the time, and the horn takes time to clear itself before it works on the surface (once when I really needed to use it). I didn't mind toggling from Air to Water on the last one, so I would recommend buying one of those instead (if you can still find them) - it worked much better. I replaced my old once since the underwater horn seems to have worn out after a couple of years...

Comments about Dive Alert PLUS v.2:

Easy to use device for above water alerting or below water signaling. Slightly bulky, but does not interfere with use of alternative air supply or bcd inflator. Make sure you get the correct version for your alternate air supply. This model works with my Zeagle combination bcd inflator/ alternate air source.

      Every diver should have one. It's loud on the surface and easily attracts attention under water. Don't dive without one.

              With the surface use you have a powerful alert horn and with the underwater signaling mode you can get someone's attention so no more tank bangers or rattles which means you have one less thing to forget or lose

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              Karen M  Just trying it out as it appears a good alert.
              Tony T  Is it compatible with Scubapro GO BCD inflator?
              THOMAS B  I think so. It has a standard connector for most BCs. However, sometimes different BCs have 1 of 2 different style couplings. I have an OCEANIC BC and it works fine. More than likely it will fit yours as they are fairly standard. Might want to check to see if the Dive Alert if offered with 2 different couplers to be sure it works with yours. I bet it will. Enjoy
              Shopper  Will this fit on an AquaLung i3 inflator? If so, which one would fit best?
              NEAL W  I am not sure. You would have to check the manufacturers specs. I am sorry. I use a Scubapro Knight hawk with AIR 2.
