Diving Cylinders are the air supply required in order to dive. A cylinder carries approximately 3000L of air. The average diver should last around 40min at a depth of 20m, however this will depend on the divers consumption.
The mistake often made, is that we go for a larger cylinder to increase air consumption. We should be analysing how we dive, move in the water and the Drag factor of our Gear.

Our cylinders come complete with valve and bootie (if they are steel). Our steel cylinders are from Faber and our Aluminium cylinders come from Luxfer.
The aluminium cylinders we import ARE NOT the American Catalina Cylinders (unless specified otherwise) which are difficult to dive with as they float. Our Luxfer cylinders are neutrally buoyant.
Steel cylinders are negatively buoyant so it will require one to take weights off the weight belt.
We recommend the Luxfer Aluminium cylinders because the are neutrally buoyant.
