DIVERS BEWARE!!! How to ensure you don’t run out of air -40m in the middle of a wreck!

Do you know the difference between nitrox 36% and 10/50 tri-mix?

No? Read on…It may just save your life one day!

Scuba Diving by nature is an inherently dangerous Sporting activity. Submersing yourself into the depths of the unknown with a pressurised air bomb strapped to your back sipping oxygen bubbles through what’s essentially an over the top fancy straw. Although it may not appeal to some there are many others out there like me who enjoy the sport, but all kidding aside the dangers are VERY too real indeed.


The chances of dying while scuba diving are higher than sky diving and bungee jumping put together!


If you were baffled by the words used at the beginning of this blog, then you are one of many people who are also confused by the complexity of gases that are used to fill scuba diving tanks. There’s a huge range of safety factors to consider such as, length of dive, depth, nitrogen intake, oxygen partial pressure, gas left available, maximum operating depth, decompression stops, safety stops….the list goes on and on. It’s no wonder people can become nauseated when trying to decide which gas they would be best suited with, for a particular dive. With 2 separate diving qualifications under my belt, and working towards an advanced course, I still refer to more experienced divers when getting “tank fills” to go diving. This is the crux to the problem, deciding what to put into a tank for a particular dive.


“It’s a shame but many people who gain the qualification for mixed gases then sit on it and never use it, unless directly involved with a diving club, due to the fear factor induced with deciding what’s appropriate for a given dive, gas wise.”-Alvin (diving instructor)

The problem

Divelife Is a new 4200sqft facility just outside Manchester, involved in all aspects of diving, including tank fills. The problem of confusing gas mixes and their uses is a problem for all diving businesses, as people are concerned of using higher mixes. It may sound silly to some seeing as we need it to survive, but oxygen poisoning is a very real threat to scuba divers, as in higher concentrations oxygen is toxic to the human body. This results in fewer people using higher %’s of nitrox (blends of nitrogen and oxygen that are higher than that of normal atmospheric conditions) than perhaps they might do, if better informed how and when to use them on dives. This is exaggerated further for Divelife as they also offer tri-mixes, an even more sophisticated blend of gases. By people not using these gases as regularly as they could Divelife loses out on profits. Therefore a solution is needed to make it easier for divers to access these beneficial, and for divelife, more profitable mixes.

The Solution

The solution is so clear and simple it’s ingenious, (if i do say so myself). An App that allows divers to input a couple of simple pieces of data, how long they plan to dive for, and what their deepest depth will be on the dive. This will cover all bases of safety features that need to be considered. With these two pieces of information algorithms on computers can work out which mix is best suited for the diver. This is exactly how re-breathers work, using monitoring equipment on the diver, the gas provided to the diver continuously changes depending on how deep they are and how long they’ve been down there, giving the diver the longest dive time possible while maintaining within safety margins. However coming in at between £5,000-£10,000 each they’re very sophisticated pieces of equipment, with HUD’s and all sorts of fancy bells and whistles. The app will use the same algorithms but will be an extremely cheap (maybe even free) service that would then relay the info onto technicians at Divelife as to which gas is required, that would then fill tanks as required.
