Controlling your buoyancy with weights and air
Different suits, dive environments, and tank size and composition may change your weight requirements
Your BCD is not an elevator. Before diving you need to understand how your BCD responds to adding or dumping small amounts of air
As you dive your bouyancy changes due to wetsuit compression, air tank depletion, and other environmental changes. Be prepared for this and know how much air to use to help minimize the effects of this on your dive.
Bouyancy control is a skill that is worth your time to help you avoid injury while exploring the underwater world!
