You don’t need to replace these after every dive but what I do is give them
a rinse after the days diving. It will be interesting to get some feedback
form anyone that does this in the really extreme climates where lid
condensation is a problem. Then maybe you will have to change them every
Maintenance: Remove totally when in
storage and dry completely ( I stick my pads in the drying cupboard). You
can have a few of these when you are doing a diving weekend of extended
trip. While one set is drying you can have a fresh set in the unit.
I have also done some tests using
these in the base of the scrubber. By placing the pad directly on the bottom
of the scrubber and placing the stack on top of it, the pad will absorb 50ml
of water. I wouldn’t recommend stacking the pads on top of each other as you
do not want to create channelling. I have heard guys using shammy* on the
bottom of the scrubber. Any data on how much water that it can soak up? Also
I would think that there would be a risk of the shammy flapping up thus
causing channelling. But once again I haven’t done this so cant comment.
This works great for me. I would
really welcome any feed back from people that are doing things differently
and are getting good results.
