Scuba Diving for Beginners : How to Purge Scuba Regulator


Hi. I’m Cole at Expert Village and I’m going
to be talking about how to properly clear a regulator. Sometimes the regulator can get
kicked out of your mouth underwater or the hose can get caught on the reef and get pulled
out of your mouth and then get water in it. You need to get that water out before you
begin breathing off of it. There are two ways to do that. The first one is to just blast
it clear like a snorkel; just put it in your mouth and blow into it forcefully. The alternate
method is to take your tongue and put it to the roof of your mouth, and then press the
front of the regulator, or the purge button, and it will cause air to flow through the
lines, into the regulator and forcing the water out the vents. That method is typically
used if your regulator gets pulled out of your mouth just before you’re about to take
a breath and you don’t have enough air in your lungs to force the air out yourself.

    when manually clearing the reguator it isnt like a snorkle. with a snorkle you have to blow hard and fast
    but with a regulator its a long strog blow
