what can you tell me about this mask, specifically using the purge
Hello Bill, the way a purge works in a mask like this. If you get any water in the mask you are going to look down and blow out threw your nose and it will purge all the water out of your mask. Since this mask is a 3 window mask you are going to have great side views to give you more of a panoramic field of vision. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Does this mask (the Plus) have the exact same dimensions as the Scuba Pro CrystalVu? I need to replace a broken hinge on my CrystalVu (not Plus). Do you have any suggestions as to where I could find one, please? Thank you.
Unfortunately we do not know for certain. This is currently their only version of the Crystal Vu mask (with and without purge). The current Plus version refers to their use of the new optical quality glass that has no tint as opposed to previous versions. For the side clips you may want to try the manufacturer directly.
nowhere could I read whether or not this mask has a purge valve. I looked over the photo and no purge valve. previous question asked how a purge valve works but didnt asked if this mask has one..So I will ask to be sure,Does this mask have a purge valve?
Hello Jerry, no this mask does not have a purge valve. Now this mask: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/127039/ScubaPro-Crystal-Vu-Plus-Ultra-Clear-Mask-with-Purge.html is the version that does have the purge. They make a non-purge and purge version of this mask.
I bought this mask and have always used saliva to keep my mask from fogging. This mask fogs up even when using saliva. Whats the deal with that? Is there something I can do to make this mask stop fogging using saliva? GRRRRRRR
Hello Lynn, if you get some of the grit toothpaste (has the sandpaper type feel to it). Put a dab on the inside of the lens and rub that around for 3-5 min. When the lens are first made there is a fine powder coat on the insdie of the lens. That will buff the inside lens that will help your saliva or defog you are using to stick to the inside of the lens to help keep your mask from fogging up.
