Truthfully, this might have been a post we should have worked on last fall since some of you are ready to pull your equipment out and dive right now. In fact, some of you even went and enjoyed a nice cool dip in the lake on New Year’s Day. But none-the-less, it’s never too early or too late to make sure your gear is stored properly so that when you make that first dive, it’s there, ready for you, in tip-top condition!
What is the proper way to store your SCUBA Diving Equipment when not in use?
First and foremost, your equipment should be stored in a cool, dry, non-dusty area. When it comes to storing equipment, you have a couple options. The options most people use are either a gear bag (like for travel), a mesh bag, or a large plastic tub/crate. There was also the ultimate SCUBA equipment holder that went around Facebook a few years ago, but most people don’t have that luxury. So, we’ll stick to the previously mentioned options.
We’re going to lump the travel gear bag with the plastic tub/crate. For the most part, they are similar in storage options/limitations. Remember, that keyword there is similar.
