Gas Management System  for his Inspiration


   Self sealing  Quick release connectors


  • High  Flow  Fittings rated over 200 bar

  • Viton seals all 02 clean

  • OC Regulators  work normally at depth

  • Both valved halves have auto shut off seals with  up stream valves,

  • Re-usable hose fittings on the hose connection side, machined as part of the connectors.

  • Un-screw your old end fittings   & Screw on the new ones

  • No thread adaptors needed

  • Low Cost

Now use any gas you have via  OC regulator


Also  the 02 supply

Told you to hang on

One quick click and you have a 02 Regulator


Take any off board gas whip

Plug this into your secondary dill  feed   


 Donor whip  installed  down the side of  inhale lung with valve (c) on the end


Now use any gas

via the Rebreather  Dill bar

Use any gas via, ADV, OC/DSV, Auto Air

Anything thatís plumbed into the dill bar

By swapping one whip lead


You will have to shut down your in board dill tank or set all other 1st stages 1<> 2 bar higher .The non return valve will then kick in .

If you have a 1st stage fail or HP gage fail on your in-board dill

When you plug in any off board gas the non-return valve will then stop the bailout gas going out via the leak





  • Easily change to any dill mix

  • Conscious effort to switch  gas mix  

  • If Buddy has the same system you can plug into them


  • If my  OC reg starts to free flow

  • If my OC/DSV starts to free flow

            Unplug the faulty equipment

            With no gas loss or the need for full gas  shut down  

  • Bailed out to OC  would like change to a richer  mix on accent

              Unplug the dill feed and plug in your next gas mix

  • Bailed out to OC  would like to use the 02 up for deco

                Unplug the 02 button feed and plug this into your pocket regulator


The Possibilities  are endless
