  • #1 Write your EAN mix on your tank

    By SKuba Steve

    By writing your EAN mix on your tank when you pick it up at the dive shop you can be sure to enter the right value into your computer or use it with your tables in dive planning.

    By SKuba Steve

    Once you've identified the EAN mix it's a good idea to write down the Maximum Operating Depth (MOD) of the gas for planning purposes. Be sure to check out what ppO2 you're using for gas planning!

  • #3 Write your students names

    By SKuba Steve

    Customers and fellow divers appreciate it when you call them by name. It's not always easy but a little duct tape goes a long way to improving the customer experience!
