I am thinking about getting a Spare Air, Im currently not diving with Nitrox but the is a possibility that I will be in the future......is it possible to get a Nitrox Spare Air and fill it with regular air then if I decide to dive Nitrox it will be ready?
I hv question about differences between spare air 3.0 n 3.0 nitrox? is it worth money if I buy it when used underwater is it work properly
can you use spare air for snorkeling. say you wanted to stay down 15 min or so in 10-20 feet
Hello Peter, if you are looking for something that would last that long and with any set-up you go with that will let you breath underwater you would need to be scuba certified to get the unit in questioned fill at any dive shop that fill tanks. But to answer your questions you would need to go with a larger tank if you are looking to breath underwater for more than 3 min.
Good evening, Is the spare air pack allowed in flights, and if yes does it need any special treatment in order to be able to carry it on airplanes? Thanks in advance
In order to travel with the unit it needs to be dis-assembled. They have a travel kit just for this. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-37/034097/Submersible-Systems-Spare-Air-Travel-Pack.html
Hi, is the 170 version that you sell the latest Spare Air model, with the Universal Refill Adapter that can attach to the first stage of my regulator instead of the scuba tank? Cheers
Hello, I plan to deliver the spare air (plus the travel pack) to a friend in US and he will bring it up in Greece. I need to know if possible: 1. could he curry the product in the airplane as it will be delivered or he should dis-assembled first? 2. should it be in a suitcase or a hand luggage? 3. what is its weight? Thank you very much
You can place the order on the website. Using Amazon Checkout is the easiest way to process international orders. The shipping charge will be listed when you proceed to checkout and prior to submitting the order. The weight is about 4 lbs. and can be taken on airlines completely disassembled.

I am a Padi certified diver who is looking for a small system to keep on my boat to do short underwater inspections, cleanings and changes of zincs on prop shafts. Work depth would be between 2 to 10 feet, for about 5 - 10 minutes at a time. But I do not want to bring all my equipment out on the boat each time. Will the spare air system work for this purpose? Note- I will need to have both hands free to do the work, so how do I secure it?
I am working on getting my Nitrox certification can I use the Nitrox tank with regular air until I get my certification done?
I live on the water. Been a certified diver since 1983. I now freedive spearfish 50-60 but intend to take the PFI course so I can go 100. My wife too. Getting to be little room for error. Can we strap these to our forearm. Wed only use them in an emergency situation. How many breaths at about a 100. (we"d probably only need 1 or 2). Is this an acceptable application?
Hello Mark, you would be looking at around 56 breaths at the surface. Yes this would work for you. Since you are at depth and free diving if you are breathing with this you will have to exhale on the way up. If you breath off of this and hold your breath on the way up you could run into issues.
This might sound like a stupid question to all you scuba divers... I have never been scuba diving, Im just looking for an air tank to take on a cruise with me (the movie Titanic where the water rushes into the rooms instilled a deep fear of drowning on a boat). My question is: does it actually come with 57 breaths of air already in it? If not, where would a non-scuba diver get it filled? Thank you!
Can this tank be refill if so where?, and how long will the CO2 last just sitting in the tank. I am using as emergency escape from work. Thanks.
Hello Alex, there is a yoke refill adapter that comes with the unit. If you need to fill directly off a compressor then you would need this piece to attach to the unit: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-37/043031/Submersible-Systems-Fill-Station-Refill-Adaptor.html.
I am not a scuba diver, however I have a swimming pool which goes to a depth of 10 feet in the deep end. A couple of years ago I had a hole in the liner which I found eventually by holding my breath, diving and searching but it would have been much easier with an air supply. I dont want to invest in a full scuba setup but would something like this work for this purpose? Also, how do these get re-filled? Thanks.
Hello Joshua, yes this would give you a little of a bottom time to do what you are trying to do. However you need to be a certified diver to use this. We would not ship this to you full. You would need to fill it off a scuba tank or take it to your local dive shop and they can fill it for you but you would need to be a certified diver for that to happen.

Don't Risk It! Get your Spare Air Safety Leash
Billed as the smallest, most compact redundant emergency air system available today, the Spare Air has been giving divers that added little bit of comfort and protection for over 30 years!
The Spare Air is a versatile system combining a common demand style regulator with a small aluminum cylinder that allows the divers that extra air needed to handle an unexpected out of air situation during a dive. The small bottle comes in either 1.7 cubic foot or the more popular 3.0 cubic feet and is easily and securely attached to the diver’s equipment with Deluxe Holster and Safety Leash included in the kit. Offering approximately 57 average breaths at the surface, the 3.0 cubic foot version is enough air to safely ascend from 30 meters. Its best use comes from being a small handy unit that is perfect for allowing the diver to solve an out of air or air interrupting situation underwater without having to make an emergency ascent. It can be passed off to a diver in distress to help them get a few breaths of air while they calm down and assess a situation or can allow the owner the air it takes to get to their buddy safely and comfortably for help.
The Spare Air is always ready for use and is easily refilled by using the Yoke Refill Adapter right off the divers own tank! Simply unscrew the protective cap and install the yoke adapter. It’s as easy as that!
