Hello /k/, been interested in diving and recently bought myself a soviet IP 5 Rebreather, mainly because i am Australian and diving gear is expensive shit.I also need to do a course to obtain my qualification to dive so i opted for another option.I will be using it to dive up to 15-20m, probably even more. Using it mainly for rivers and such. Only worry i have is if the canister is confronted with the Air/Water (somehow it will set on fire which will kill the diver but i'm willing to take the risk.Video of the one i got; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CowjpZDtNlE
>>37143333>be swimming under water>haha don't have to worry about drowning>something happens to the canister and I catch on fire>underwater
>>37143419I've currently got a polish canister with my mask (All brand new), checked it out, seems very secure. I cant see how you'd puncture it or have it exposed to water without again puncturing it or getting shot and it hitting the canister.I'll most likely go out later on to the beach, don't want to be seen wearing it so I'll give you guys a note on if it's good or not.Fucking seller originally didn't want to sell me the canister because he knew i wanted it for diving, had to lie and say it was for collecting and that i wouldn't risk it.
>>37143333>I will be using it to dive up to 15-20mIsn't the thing with rebreathers that you can't dive deeper than the depth where you need to breathe special mixture and follow decompression standards?
It's an expensive hobby. Thousands of buckaroos. It's fun af and ppds are neat if you want to blow up a fish
>>37143474A diver at 6 metres (20 ft) may be able to dive for many hours without needing to do decompression stops. At depths greater than 40 metres (130 ft), a diver may have only a few minutes at the deepest part of the dive before decompression stops are needed.I'm in the safe.
>>37143419that's not necessarily what would happen, the canisters don't always catch fire.>>37143333>be swimming along>haha so much air this is amazing>water gets into the cannister>begins releasing caustic gas into your breathing supply>chemical burns to 90% of your lungs before you can pull mask offand then you die later at the hospital because there's literally nothing that modern medicine can do for chem burns to the lungs, short of a full replacement.if you're only looking to do shallow dives for less than an hour just get real fucking SCUBA gear dude.
>>37143333Where do you get refill for the cans? Aren't they expensive?
>>37143516>that's not necessarily what would happen, the canisters don't always catch fire.OP here, the problem is, it has a very violent reaction. So you can be sure it will catch fire (Even i will admit) but see here; >>37143453I don't see how you will puncture it.I'm in the safe, I'll test out the waters slowly, and go to about 7m and then go on real dives.>>37143536Chepa, about 30-40 euros for 4 canisters which are brand new and polish.
>>37143502>A diver at 6 metres (20 ft) may be able to dive for many hours without needing to do decompression stops.they don't have to decompress period. your blood doesn't saturate with compressed gas at that depth.>At depths greater than 40 metres (130 ft), a diver may have only a few minutes at the deepest part of the dive before decompression stops are needed.decompression stops are needed at any depth greater than 20 feet dependent on how long you spend at that depth. there's a reason dive charts exist and why most divers will do a 3 minute stop at 20 meters prior to surfacing. >I'm in the safe.no. you THINK you're in the safe.
>>37143553>I don't see how you will puncture it.time makes fools of us all. also running into a fucking rock and having all your bodyweight behind it can also cause that.or, ya know, depth could crush the canister. seriously, why don't you just get a Scuba tank and a BCD?
>>37143594>time makes fools of us all. also running into a fucking rock and having all your bodyweight behind it can also cause that.That's possible, but very unlikely.>or, ya know, depth could crush the canister. Won't ever happen at depths of 7-15m, not even at 20m. 20m is probably around 28.46 psi / 1.94 atm.I think people worry too much.Anyway picture related, canisters.
>>37143333OP gonna get himself killed.
OP you're being a really stupid motherfucker. Unless of course you have no friends or family who will miss you when you die and/or were planning on committing suicide anyway.-The gear has not been regularly maintained or checked and presumably has no logbook associated with it-rebreather kits can be deadly (at least you seem to know this), not just because of the aforementioned fire risk but also because of the prospect of producing carbon monoxide. They are an advanced piece of kit which technical divers spend tens of thousands of dollars of their own money on. They often maintain their own kit. If they would trust some surplus soviet stuff that you can get cheap do you think that they would spend tens of thousands on their own little boxes of death?-you plan on diving with no buddy or shore cover-you are not certified and seem to have a very loose grasp of the concept of decompression which leads me on to-You don't even seem to have a fucking depth gauge or dive watch. At least get a cheap suunto dive computer you stupid motherfucker. You will disappear at the bottom of a river, if you are found by chance months or years later nobody will be able to identify your worm filled corpse. pic related is a rebreather that a sane individual would use, just save up for a dive course and make some friends along the way, lots of QTs dive too. Get yourself a QT frogman GF and don't be an idiot. Sources: Have dived SCUBA before and was not literally born retarded.
>>37143636>That's possible, but very unlikely.>there's very little chance that my 20+ year old soviet made canisters, which were designed to be used as a last resort method to escape to a place with safe breathing air, that I have zero training with, will fail when used for a purpose other than what it was designed for.FTFY>Won't ever happen at depths of 7-15m, not even at 20m.and the titanic will never sink.again, why don't you go the safe route and just get a SCUBA tank?
>>37143688>-The gear has not been regularly maintained or checked and presumably has no logbook associated with itWell to be fair, i checked it over myself, seems all good. No holes, tubing is good, tried it on and tested it and it works good. I already spent about 120$ on my soviet diving gear with extra canisters and everything else so i don't want to now have to spend more for a dive computer.I already have a watch which I'll put a timer on, it can go to depths of up to 200m so it won't have problem underwater. My canister also lasts up to 2 hours under water.>>37143700>again, why don't you go the safe route and just get a SCUBA tank?Too expensive, mate. I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one. Getting qualified is a pain in the ass, takes time, money, and sitting through boring instructors.
>>37143758>Too expensive, mate.How expensive is it exactly? It's a hobby, you're going to put time and money into it eventually.If you can't afford the gear, why not train to dive without a tank?
>>37143758This nigga's life is only worth 120 bucks.
>>37143758>Getting qualified is a pain in the ass, takes time, money, and sitting through boring instructors.Famous last words. Winging it is begging for troubles.
>>37143333Better to give out the extra emu shekels for gear that won't increase your chances of dying exponentially than to have faith in sketchy Soviet shit that not even they'd use. And so help me god if you waste quads like that again I will personally kill my self on the day of your near death so I can kick your ass for eternity for being a complete twatwaffle.
>>37143758>Well to be fair, i checked it over myself, seems all good.everything check out in accordance with your training and your equipment manuals? everything up to spec?>so i don't want to now have to spend more for a dive computer.so what, you're just gonna eyeball your depth and dive timetables?>My canister also lasts up to 2 hours under water.it lasted that long when it was made. now, who knows?>Too expensive, mate. I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one.Too expensive, mate. I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one.you can buy a used regulator and a used tank for about 80$ more than what you paid for your questionable soviet nonsense.>I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one.you need to be qualified to use that rebreather and dive with it, but I don't see that stopping you.>Getting qualified is a pain in the ass, takes time, money, and sitting through boring instructors.and saves you from dying while diving because you don't know what you're fucking doing
>>37143758and what if your can starts producing monoxide? what if you get distracted by the majestic beauty of the natural world and stray down to 15 m because you don't have a depth gauge?Mate, I can't stop you being an idiot but if you're set on it I would urge you, for the sake of your friends and family, to not use that thing for longer than 15 minutes in anything deeper than a duckpond. Please don't reuse canisters either 'oh it's still got 20 minutes on it, she'll be right' is not a safe way of diving. and please at least take someone with you to sit on the surface and call an ambulance if anything goes wrong. All the 'boring instructor shit' is boring for a reason, it's keeping you and your buddies safe.
>>37143758FFS mate you are beyond help.You are literally the poster child for scuba diving fatalities, you meet all the criteria to be another statistic.When people go to dive schools they will tell stories about you before saying that "scuba diving is a very safe hobby as long as you don't do what this idiot did".The students will have a nervous chuckle to themselves and be thankful they aren't as stupid as the guy who bought an old soviet rebreather from the internet who thought he could eyeball his depth in a murky river whose body caught fire while being retrieved by the water police when his equipment got caught on the remains of an old jetty.
>>37143943/threadyou got yourself a cool piece of militaria, OP. mount it on the wall and keep it there.
>>37143834>everything check out in accordance with your training and your equipment manuals? everything up to spec?Well no, but then again it's not all electronic stuff or as sophisticated as the re-breathers you can get now. So it's rather easy to check if it's working good or there is a hole somewhere in the tubing.>so what, you're just gonna eyeball your depth and dive timetables?I used to swim a lot, so i have a good feeling of the depths. 15-20 m is hard not to notice.>you can buy a used regulator and a used tank for about 80$ more than what you paid for your questionable soviet nonsense.Where?>you need to be qualified to use that rebreather and dive with it, but I don't see that stopping you.Well it is soviet gear, and publicly available so i don't see how. When buying scuba gear, especially tanks or getting them refilled I'm positive you need to show them your diving license.>>37143853>and what if your can starts producing monoxide?I'm currently looking up the effects, and what to do if the situation arises. I'll prepare myself.>at least take someone with you to sit on the surface and call an ambulance if anything goes wrong. Got no one to go with me, i don't have friends, but before anything whinges i don't get depressed and i actually enjoy life and love shooting guns. But that's why i cant go with no one, I'll also go later tonight so i don't get caught ad i said and get in trouble by the police.I spent good money on it, i physically and mentally cant just discard it i have to use it now.
>>37143985Holy fucking shit you're dumber than the anon that gassed himself.
>>37143985don't get memed by the sunk cost fallacy anon. You now have a cool piece of militaria to entice your new QT frogman GF back to your place with. "ayy bb want to see my mint soviet rebreather system?" She'll creamSave up for a proper course & kit, go dive with normies and make friends.
>>37143985>Well no, but then again it's not all electronic stuff or as sophisticated as the re-breathers you can get now. that doesn't change the fact that you have no idea what to look for when inspecting it. hell you don't even know if those canisters have an expiration date for use, you're just assuming they'll work.>I used to swim a lot, so i have a good feeling of the depths. the timetables for the bends from 15m to 20m are radically different. you're asking to get hurt.>Where?https://www.ebay.com/itm/80-CU-FT-Luxfer-Scuba-Tank-Hydro-done-on-3-2018-Thermo-Valve/263548142415?hash=item3d5cb1834f:g:VYIAAOSwacVaqDWshttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Oceanic-Scuba-Regulator-Mares-Octopus-Oceanic-DataMax-Pro-Dive-Computer/263548460948?hash=item3d5cb65f94:g:aYcAAOSwSB1aqG-dexcluding shipping, but you also get a computer with the tank and the octopus and reduce your risk of dying.>When buying scuba gear, especially tanks or getting them refilled I'm positive you need to show them your diving license.nope. you can buy gear and have your tanks filled without any certification whatsoever.>I'm currently looking up the effects, and what to do if the situation arises. I'll prepare myself.lemme explain what happens. you feel a little lightheaded, you may smell an acidic smell, you feel tightness across your forehead, then you pass out. >I'll also go later tonight so i don't get caught ad i said and get in trouble by the police.and you're adding on night diving to your already insanely stupid and dangerous dive. you're literally asking to die dude.
>last known sighting of OP as he enters the water for his first and last time
>>37143985Bruh you will fucking die from CO before you know what to do, especially at depth. It isn't like it is a pronounced effect, and when you notice it, you will be too far gone to do much.
is soviet era gear even trustworthy?
If you wear a closed-circuit rebreather without a working O2 supplying cartridge then it's possible to asphyxiate to death whilst wearing it- the CO2 is removed out the air you breathe which stops you feeling the characteristic burning of suffocation that high CO2 levels produce and you won't notice the O2 levels in the recycled air dropping until you begin suffering the debilitating effects of hypoxia, and by the time you suffer hypoxia you may not be able to focus or manipulate the rebreather system with enough dexterity to remove it before you lose consciousness.
Leave it to the pros, OP
>>37144365It wasnt trustworthy in the soviet era
>>37144449A guy said he was gonna make some chlorine gas to test his new gas mask, then posted some pics of pretty badly faked burns (dead flaking skin ins't supposed to be red in and of itself when there's no blood around you know) as he pretended that the chemicals were burning his exposed skin.
>>37143758>I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one.no you don't, there is no law stating you need to be qualified to use scuba.
i have a feeling op will still go ahead with it
>>37144365very high quality goods
Take the PADI open water course OP. Casual diving is not hard provided nothing goes wrong. But the course teaches you what to do when SHTF. From there work your way up through different certs if you want to do more technical dives and what not. Also diving gear is not cheap and IDK really know how much I would trust a surplus slav re breather.
>>37143453where did you get it.
>>37144620>IDK really know how much I would trust a surplus slav re breather.I wouldn't trust that thing on dry land.
>>37144642test it in the tub or something first
Theres a quarry near me I might test mine in, how much weight do I need
>>37143636>20m is probably around 28.46 psi / 1.94 atm.Probably...
I'd say let's watch the headlines for some dumbfuck aussieshit washing up dead on the riverbank, but hopefully a bullshark eats his corpse. You're a fucking retard OP. You have abo levels of critical thinking and foresight. People die with quality gear all the time never to be seen again and you think surplus Soviet era shit will keep you from being crab food rotting on the riverbed. How about you go buy a GP-5 and try your hand at mixing bleach and ammonia.Fucking Aussies. Everytime.
>>37144116>that doesn't change the fact that you have no idea what to look for when inspecting it.If it doesen't leak oxygen, has no holes, and works when all connected, it's good to go.>https://www.ebay.com/itm/80-CU-FT-Luxfer-Scuba-Tank-Hydro-done-on-3-2018-Thermo-Valve/263548142415?hash=item3d5cb1834f:g:VYIAAOSwacVaqDWs>https://www.ebay.com/itm/Oceanic-Scuba-Regulator-Mares-Octopus-Oceanic-DataMax-Pro-Dive-Computer/263548460948?hash=item3d5cb65f94:g:aYcAAOSwSB1aqG-dSo roughly AUD 250$ for 2 pieces of equipment, overpriced.>>37144657I'm going to put weights around my waist, I'll try small increments of 3-5kg.
>>37144657You need a BC + weights and you make adjustments accordingly. At least that is what you do with standard scuba gear. OP a re breather is much more complicated and you will end up fucking it up. F.
>>37144495https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUfF2MTnqAwHypoxia's no joke. Come to think of it how would the efficiency of these cans fall off? "Good for 2 hours" doesn't make much sense to me, How would that change if OP was hyperventilating? Is it producing a set volume of O2 per second? I just googled chemical O2 generators and they seem to work at much higher temperatures than you'd want in a tin strapped to your chest. I guess the CO2 scrubber works off total CO2 absorbed as well - I doubt it's working as well at 1h 30 as it was at 0 mins is all i'm thinking. Is it guaranteed to start making CO as it gets saturated or would CO only come about as a manufacturing error? How the fuck is OP happy with this shit?
>>37144712The O2 source is just a small pressurised gas canister, no chemical reactions involved. The chemistry in a re-breather is when the CO2 is removed.
PSA: If water should enter the oxygen generating canister it will burst into flames, I know it's 4chan and all but this is 100% not a joke.good luck..
>>37143333I have a related question.Do SF use body armour when diving?If so, what?
>>37144757ah, neat. So how long have these been sitting around with pure O2 in them? That doesn't seem like a recipe for a healthy can.
OP: "I wanna do a stupid thing, is it a bad idea?"/k/: "Don't do the thing, it's a bad idea. It could kill you a whole bunch of different ways"OP: "I'ma do the stupid thing anyway"I really do despair sometimes.
>>37143333/k/ is the only place where niggas will be scared of half a thimbleful of asbestos in gas mask filters, but at the same time attempt to use an apparatus that can kill them in several different ways if they don't know what they're doingamazing
>>37144783mne vse ravno
>>37144772The problem with the IP5, is the canister is already operating at very high temperature where it can boil water, now if exposed to water / oxygen you will end up swallowing hot sludge from the filter and it also has a very high chance of exploding underwater.
>>37144819Well, reading up on shit it turns out the Soviet military ones do, in fact, not use an gas canisters, the CO2 scrubbing chemical ends up releasing O2 as it does its thing. Which is also why you see so many people warning about punctures, it takes some seriously nasty shit (potassium dioxide in this case) to spontaneously turn CO2 into O2.But yeah, a pressurised O2 canister that's been sitting around in god knows what conditions for god knows how long wouldn't seem very safe to me, and the same goes for a can of KO2.
>>37144870Быть пo ceмy.
>>37144923The canisters HAVE to be bought separately. Warnings about not using them are all over the place. Most people won't sell you one because of the dangers associated with using them if untrained..... There are a couple chemical compounds used to scrub the co2 from exhaled air. All of them react violently to water, The rebreather canister scrubs exhaled air of impurities by way of a chemical reaction One example is Potassium Superoxide KO2 which forms Potassium Carbonate using CO2)this is why not many people will sell you canisters and why they dont come in a pack with the mask
>>37145098Well yes if it punctures.. if it does it has a chance of exploding like i said op topit would be like a hand grenade detonating on your chest
drowning has to be my most feared way of dyingsome people are just fucking crazy
>it's a op plans to breath asinine gas underwater and tells k about it episode
soviet equipment is greathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZX5hbQxbwBw
>>37144692>If it doesen't leak oxygen, has no holes, and works when all connected, it's good to go.that's really, really, not how rebreather inspections work.>So roughly AUD 250$ for 2 pieces of equipment, overpriced.>recently serviced tank>first stage regulator>second stage regulator>computer>depth gauge>backup second stage regulatorsure, overpriced. please leave some way to let us know when you die because you were being cheap.
>>37144692so, kinda basic question, does that thing have an apparatus in it to facilitate you doing the valsalva maneuver? or is it flexible enough for you to pinch your nose?
>>37143453hows it work
>>37143688how do divers communicate underwater if they can't see each others hands
>>37145822You get your buddy's attention with a wave or a tap. Signals are basic anyway; you plan your dive before you descend so you both know what you're doing and where you're going already.Generally you also glance at your buddy every now and again to make sure they're still there/not dead/trying to tell you there's a cool fish nearby
If you want something Russian and relatively cheap look into the ida-71 I've seen them go on ebay for as low as $350. Otherwise I recommend downloading a manual for the ip-5, the only one i can find is in russian, so have fun. Otherwise don't go below 5 meters, 15ft, and don't stay for longer than 30 mins. I would advise against you doing this, but if you are set on this become a tripfag, tell us where you are going and report back if you are still alive.
OP U ALIVE?
diver here, youre gonna get yourself killed.just get a tank, regs, and weight belt and you'll have a better time. Really. Training is important, and its really not too hard but the things you learn will save you from a horrible death.
Hey op, don't listen to these fags. Hi I'm phil swift. If you got holes in them funky cans or that fancy rubber just slap some flex tape on em. You'll be safe or your money back.
>>37147067>ida-71They are very expensive, i have no idea where you got the "350" ballpark figure from, when they range from around 500-700 USD. To get them to function properly also takes many hours and lots of money.People who fix them up usually spend about 1000-2000$, but with that they have no problem going to depths of 200m.
>>37147465>scared of deathcuck
Put me in the screencap when OP kills himself
I just want to see what happens for science.
>>37147989nothing gonna happeni used such mask in Russian army, it's great, great price.i suggest you buy 2 or 3 and save for keeping in-case something happen, if buy box of them even better.Good re-sale value my friend.You want to buy?
>>37147480YOU JUST SAWED THAT BOAT IN HALF
>>37143688OP is an idiot. I'm a diver myself. Half of the diving accidents are because of rebreathers - modern, expensive and well-maintained units operated by experienced and trained divers. Now, purchasing a second-hand SOVIET rebreather and hoping it to work, that's just having a death wish. Unless I lived in a post-apocalyptic setting where it is absolutely vital I do this dive, I'd never use such a POS of equipment, especially without the proper training. >>37143333I hope your ancestors are smiling at you, OP.
>>37143333The Yuri Lipski video is getting old. OP, you need to have someone document your demise... I meant your dive.
>>37143453>Fucking seller originally didn't want to sell me the canister because he knew i wanted it for diving, had to lie and say it was for collecting and that i wouldn't risk it.risk what?And what's this caustic gas shit? Can I get a quick rundown?
>>37143985>I'm currently looking up the effects, and what to do if the situation arises. I'll prepare myself.holy shit anon, you are the densest motherfucker /k/ has seen in a long time make sure to stream your adventure just to make sure you get the Darwin award you so richly deserve
>>37143333For 2100 Kangaroo bucks you can have a complete entry set of diving equipment (mask, snorkel, fins, regulator + octopus, pressure & depth gauge, BCD, diving computer, 3mm skin suit, diving knife) that will allow you to dive safely (rent the cylinder and the weight belt) and to pass an OWD course.
>>37148155Read the thread
>>37148158This is why the govt took their guns off them, it also tried to make them all wear safety helmets but too many were choking to death while trying to adjust the straps.
>>37148057>I'm a diver myself. Half of the diving accidents are because of rebreathersCould you be more descriptive?I know jack shit about diving but I'm curious about it. Reading a little bit about rebreathers, they sound fucking neato. Using chems to recycle the air you breathe out.What's the danger?
>>37144787nounderwater battles onely ever happen in James Bond movies
>>37143758>I also need to be qualified to use one and dive with one. Getting qualified is a pain in the ass, takes time, money, and sitting through boring instructors.I can't even swim and I can tell you're gonna fucking die.
>>37148232>What's the danger?Wikipedia describes it well:When compared with open circuit scuba, rebreathers have some disadvantages, including expense, complexity of operation and maintenance, and more critical paths to failure. A malfunctioning rebreather can supply a gas mixture which contains too little oxygen to sustain life, too much oxygen which may cause convulsions, or it may allow carbon dioxide to build up to dangerous levels. Some rebreather designers try to solve these problems by monitoring the system with electronics, sensors and alarm systems. These are expensive and susceptible to failure, improper configuration and misuse. - Oxygen rebreathers (simple closed circuit) are limited to a shallow depth range of approximately 6 m, beyond which the risk of acute oxygen toxicity rises to unacceptable levels very rapidly.- Semi-closed circuit rebreathers are less efficient than closed circuit, and are more mechanically complex than open circuit or closed circuit oxygen rebreathers.- Closed circuit rebreathers are yet more mechanically complex, and generally rely on electronic instruments and control systems to monitor and maintain a safe breathing gas mixture. This makes them more expensive to produce, more complex to maintain and test, and sensitive to getting their circuitry wet.- Depending on the complexity of the rebreather, there are more failure modes than for open circuit scuba, and several of these failure modes are not easily recognized by the diver without technological intervention.
>>37144712Neat video, thanks m8.
>>37143333i'm a commercial diver and i don't know what the fuck i am readingyou're going to kill yourself. i'm judging this won't be a great loss to the world.
>>37143553>I'm in the safe, I'll test out the waters slowly, and go to about 7m and then go on real dives.ok, diver guy here again. you don't seem to understand that if something goes wrong you've got about 30 seconds until you die. 7m is a long way to recover from if something goes wrong. you are all kinds of fucking stupid. you really need to understand this.
>>37143333>recently bought myself a soviet IP 5 Rebreather, mainly because i am Australian and diving gear is expensive shit.Are you fucking retarded, anon?
>>37143688>if you are found by chance months or years later nobody will be able to identify your worm filled corpseit's australia, he's going to get eaten by a fucking crocodile.
>>37148402that's only in northern queensland, and this type of stupidity can only occur in melbournehe's safe, he'll just wash up on the beach and make the evening news
>>37144787>Do SF use body armour when diving?if it's using diving as a shore insertion then maybe. they take their gear with them and can adjust for bouyancy. otherwise probably not. they main way to kill divers underwater is with explosives dropped from topside. the concussive shock is what kills you, so a chest plate isn't stopping that.
>>37145822recreational divers generally don'tdepending on set up, commercial/military divers will use umbilical lines back to surface, which have a radio line in them, and underwater wireless radios do in fact exist. i've never used them and i hear that the range isn't great, but maybe the military has better shit.
OP here, i am back. Went to the shops and bought some supplies, torch for under water, knife etc.. My bags are already packed and i re-checked the mask and canister, and i will be heading out to the beach now.Wish me luck, and if everything goes smoothly i will post a thread later on tonight, or tomorrow morning.Until then, goodbye.
Not OP but is there really risk of CO if this is a KO2 kit? I'm not sure there's scope for CO production & if his CO2 scrubbing packs up his O2 does too so he'll get forced up by his urge to breathe.OP is still retarded for diving decades old surplus kit of questionable build quality with no buddy, no training and an inability to even read the fucking manual, but the principle actually seems sound? What am I overlooking?

>>37148442for some reason i feel very anxious for the opcrazy bastard
Sounds like trouble. I wouldn’t use a surp soviet rebreather.
>>37148442wear a /k/ patch to make sure we make it to the news, /k/ hasent been mentioned in the news for too long
Go for it anon! Just take it easy, baby steps so you’ll be safe. Fuck all these elitist divefags. Specially the one that’s like ‘bruh go to dive school and you’re guaranteed a gf’. Sounds like you got a hell of a deal on getting into a rich guy hobby. Enjoy!
>>37148442I arrived at the beach, this will be last message since i don't want no one to see me or my phone and think something suspicious going on.Little cold but i brought ptopet gear, anyway adios anigos!
>>37148580timestampˈtʌJmstamp/noun1.a digital record of the time of occurrence of a particular event.
>>37148580Was going to say, really going diving at this time of night? jesus.
>>37148442Get someone to film the whole thing, OP!
>>37148580Nighttime?? but charks, mang!
>when you actually believe slav gear is best gear>aussie actually has the nerve to not even get a depth gauge but instead buys a knife
>>37148679He's using dangerous equipment that has never been maintained during the past 30 years. He's not respecting any diving safety rule (being trained, not diving alone, not diving at night, be sure of your equipment, having backup gear...). What are sharks compared to breathing in boiling toxic sludge.
>>37148701>He's using dangerous equipment that has never been maintained during the past 30 yearsslav gear don't need to be
god speed OP, may the emus fly you to heavan.
>>37148580You are one magnificent bastardGood speed OP
op right nowhttps://youtu.be/6_EM3cgemjc?t=4m4s
>>37148919>Op ded?dunno... i mean what could go wrong with 30 year old soviet union diving gear?
>>37148935Don't forget at night in cold water with no depth gauge
Is this OP?
>>37148961Damn good knowing you OP
>>37143333IP 5 IS NOT SUITED FOR DEPTHS GREATER THAN 10 METERS IT HAS FUCKING SOFT BREATHING VOLUME THAT WILL COLLAPSE AT GREATER DEPTHS YOU WILL DIE NIGGER.It's meant for tankers to GTFO ASAP from a drowned tank, or for looking for some lost shit in 2 meters of swamp sludge. NOT for deep diving. It's just not made for it. >>37143688This guy is right. You can actually get a much cheaper kit, if you don't chase the superultrahighspec(tm) and take second-hand, and you KNOW what you are looking for. Which is not the case. t. slav NBC coprs officer, who also does diving for fun
i believe that you get a certification from the diving organization, so the dive gear rental shop will rent you the gear at the beaches.if you bring your own gear, i doubt that you will need the certification test.
>>37148961holy shit it was even a fireCould this be the fucking OP?
>>37148935It is NOT diving gear. It's a rebreather unit. A pretty good rebreather unit, in fact. Great for a lot of things. Scuba-diving is not one of them.
>>37148988>t. slav NBC coprs officer, who also does diving for funhas the op died?
>>37149037It's quite likely that he was just putting us on a ruse-cruise. If he didn't, he probably didn't go anywhere deeper than 3 meters because it's fucking scary at first, and that's in daylight. If he actually did, the absolute madman - yeah he's 100% ded. Even if his IP was in perfect condition - the breathing bag (дыхaтeльный мeшoк, not sure about the proper translation) will start collapsing at 3 meters, making breathing much harder, and will completely collapse at around 8 or 9 meters.
>>37149058what I've come to notice on 4chan is there are lot of crazies
did he dead?
>>37148442godspeed you fucking fuck
>>37149204a e s t h e t i c s
>>37148961your map looks like a river>>37148580this looks like and is even called a beach.but still OP is not reported back so.......................RIP IN PEICES OP, F
>>37143453M8 if you’re gonna be doing diving make sure you have a dive buddy
This ausnigger is probably trolling, but does anyone have actual stories of these specific rebreathers killing people?I'm not arguing that they can cause all the things to happen mentioned ITT but some sauce would add nicely to the wait for response from OP
>Mfw the absolute mad lad fucking did itGodspeed OP, I'll see you in Valhalla so I can call you a faggot for eternity.
>>37149559one thing i have came to notice with Aussies serving in the army and training with them, is if they say yes it means yes. If they say no it means no and you cant change there mind.If they say they will do something they always do it even if they get fucked up.. they are a special kind of species.
>>37144665Laughed so hard at this comment.... "man i'm risking my life, I'm sure everything is right and even though i cant pass this depth which is probably..."FUCKING HELL nigga aint even sure himself
That's probably OP right now
I'm sure OP has lots of fun with mermaids and fishes right now.
wtf i want one of these for deer hunting now

>>37143333Someone burning to death under water is going to make a great episode of CSI:Wooloomooloo
>>37150137My sides.....There gone.
>>37148961>>37148997OP come back.
>>37148988>>37143688Listen to the double dubs OP. I would not trust my life to ANY soviet equipment other than perhaps a firearm (and even then, only after putting at least 500 rounds through it to make sure that it's not going to fail on me). As someone who's gotten SCUBA certified, I get it, it's a pain in the ass and you have a quick and cheap option right in front of you. But for the love of God, when you dive you are going into an environment that humans were never built for. We take the courses, we get the expensive equipment, because of this fact. If ANYTHING goes wrong down there, you are dead. No ifs ands or buts. Go straight to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200, you are a dead man the SECOND something goes wrong. Experienced divers with hundreds if not thousands of hours underwater die every year, someone with no experience diving into deep water with a poorly-manufactured soviet-era chemical bomb strapped to their chest doesn't stand a chance. I'd give you two, maybe four dives before a fatal accident happens. Seriously, just swallow the hard pill and take the class. If you don't have the money for your own kit, you can rent one on dive days while saving up.Don't toy with your life just because you want to play frog-man, op.
>>37151603just let this happenI want to read about the human depth charge in the papers tomorrow
>all these people telling OP not to do itI’m glad he’s killing himself, takes some stupidity out of the gene pool on the off chance he was going to reproduce. Can’t wait to read about an overweight man catching on fire while underwater in the news.
>this fucking thread
Goddamn do we just have odd amount of OPs killing themselves or what?
>>37151358the dangle zone
>>37143333checked>>37148997>>37148961Dammit OP... RIP>>37152314I get it that some people like the soviet aesthetic but for fucks sake a lot of their stuff was shit. >>37151603This is important shit OP read it.
>>37143553Those tankists have an IDA-76 rebreathers, while OP (Requiescat in pace) had an IP-5.
>>37143985At night huh. Top shelf idea, among all the others.
>>37148179There is nothing fucking safe about the ocean in Rooland even with good equipment. Hell there is nothing safe anywhere in Rooland, I'd be hesitant to sleep in anything but a locked stainless steel box.
So OP is dead?
I don't think ip5diveanon is gonna make it back guys
>>37153654Did he say how long is he gonna be diving?
>>37153609its 8 am aus time so hes either dead or in the hospital
>>37153736I hate when we don't get the end of the story.
So when do we start posting "F"?
>>37153719He was going to get 2 hours max from one canister, probably less.
>>37153756nothing in the local news but op did say he had no friends so give it a day
He's monitoring this thread right now. AREN'T YOU OP YOU GIANT FAGGOT?Masterful bait, would bite again.
>>37153865As if anons are never this stupid...
>>37151035350 but it isn’t necessary. No laws or anything just most dive shops won’t sell or rent you stuff without a certification. So just buy all your stuff privately. You can’t really go deep enough long enough on a single tank to put yourself in danger.
>>37153943You can't get to 60 feet for 30 minutes on one tank?
>>37153876this i normaly would say this has to be 100 percent baitbut this is /k/ after all...
>>37154187much like poes' law for fundies, I am no longer convinced there is a degree of stupidity that some part of /k/ will not sink to.
>>37154208was there even one single documented death of a /k/ommando?
>>37154300but he was never confirmed....or am i wrong?
Semi relevant question, can you hook a IP-5 straight to a gas mask with a hose?
>>37154300Wasn't there that one guy who gassed himself?
>>37154404Not real, funny at the time, but a total hoax.
>>37154475Ah, what a disappointment. Oh well its really about the entertainment isn't it?
>>37144783thats in an unexplored cave and cali or someshit the wild boyz went diving there thats where you took that picture from I know ebecause that show is why Im kinda gay
>>37144787only if operating amphibiously and the mission requires you to need protection from small arms fire next the the moment you come up
>>37148631COOL GUYS DONT LOOK AT EXPLOSIONS
>>37148442Good luck man
>>37148155The filter that eats up CO2 and shits out oxygen contains KO2. If KO2 ever meets water it reacts to form potassium hydroxide, hydrogen peroxide and oxygen, while releasing a huge amount of heat. Potassium hydroxide is extremely caustic, hydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidiser and can cause severe chemical burns or corrode the hell out of the apparatus, and while your lungs can stand the oxygen quite well (short term, compared to the rest here) the apparatus itself probably enjoy a lot of hot oxygen gas very well.So underwater there's a number of horrible things that can happen here. If the canister starts leaking you'll find yourself with an incendiary grenade strapped to you, and the air your breathe suddenly turns into scalding hot mix of bleach-laden caustic steam. I'd also imagine that you want a really good moisture trap between you and the cartridge, since there's a lot of moisture in the air you exhale. Another question is if the cartridges have been treated well, I don't know how fragile a chunk of KO2 is, but if that has started crumbling in there, and a bit of fine powder gets swept along with the air you inhale, well, there's moisture enough in your throat and lungs.
I bet OP didn't even die in a cool way, he probably just got turned around and disoriented in the dark and got swept out to sea like a bitch
who's compiling this?
Witness me, future generations

>>37158170>>37158372I'm hearing the "To be continued" music
>>37153992We go about 90-100ft for that long and don’t decompress. Just ascend at normal slow rate. My Naui table says 25min at 90 so that is close enough. Might not be good according to dive tables but those are conservative and I go with a guy and his son who have been doing it for years. The dude is 60 and has been diving since he was a teenager so I just follow what he says and does.
>>37148580>No EXIF data found.Well, noone can say I didn't do the bare minimum to try and recover OP's half exploded remains.Rest in crab you crazy diamond, OP.
>>37158483Ha thanks. I'll be able to sleep tonight now.
>>37153992>>37158532Also remember that the deeper you go the faster you use up your air, so that is kind of where the rule comes in about one tank. Because if you go deep, you can’t stay there long anyway.

OP you hackYou're honorable slav now
>>37165893If he went into open water at the coastal shores he's got bigger shit to worry about.Box jellies.
Has anyone capped this? I'm lazy
well, its been 22 hours since the idiot went for a swim in 30 year old equipment that will litterally explode when it touches water, i know for one that when i see this screen cap in the future; I will be reminded that this is, in fact,the most magi/k/al place on the intertubesf

I feel like if OP died this would be all over the local news. what would be the consequences of being caught by the police?
I was here.
>>37170108problem is op has no friends and went to some god knows location
>>37170108>consequences of being caughtLiterally nothing, which is what makes this even more hilarious. None of this was illegal, OP just didn't want to get funny looks for looking like a snork.You don't need a "SCUBA license" to dive at all, commercial dive sites/boats usually just request a look at a qualification card and/or a logbook (record of precious dives) to prove you're not going to actively harm your fellow divers with your stupidity.Depending on the place as well they often won't ask to see anything if you're hiring kit for personal use. OP could have hired full SCUBA kit for a fraction of what he paid to turn himself into a human depth charge. He still would have been going full retard for diving without a buddy at night with no training or shore cover, but a whole order of magnitude less retarded than he actually was.
>>37171898>human depth charge
>>37148580Another fallen kommando in the name of the /k/ube.

This can't be real. None of this can be real.No human being is this utterly careless/ignorant/foolish. I need some timestamps or some news screencaps.
