    Great informative post!
    The moving pictures really make it easy to understand what actually goes on in a regulator.
    So unless i’m going gold diving in the Bering sea i’ll be fine with an unbalanced regulator?

      Hi Anthony and thanks for stopping by. I am glad u found the article informative. Yes for the regular recreational diver in warmer waters the unbalanced regulator is fine. It comes down to a matter of preference and your budget really for warm water diving whether u get a balanced or unbalanced regulator. THough diving for gold in the Bering Sea is fun too, lol, just a little chilly. Hope to see you in the water soon.

    Good educational information. But what are the chances of a regulator malfunctioning and causing a physical problem or threat while diving? I have a serious want to try diving but I think it scares me a little. Thanks.

      Hi, Ronnie and thanks for stopping by. Diving equipment these days is really safe and durable. The chances of a regulator failing during diving are VERY slim. I have have been diving since 1978 and have never seen a regulator fail during a dive yet. And the means mine of anyone else’s that I have dived with, so I think you are pretty safe. U should really give it a try, it is so much fun to do and exciting. I hope to see you in the water soon.

    I did not know that this was just one piece this whole time and that it just came off. I’ve been living my entire life believing this device was connected entirely.
