We receive many questions about regulators every day. Which one is suitable for my dive trip, which brand and model is the best and how do I choose a regulator that suits me? In this blog you can read what types of regulators exist and for which types of dives you can use them.
Entry level: suitable for holiday use
Our entry level regulators are simple and, in most cases, unbalanced. These piston-controlled regulators provide the same breathing comfort regardless of depth and cylinder pressure. These regulators are often not suitable for cold water (water below 12 ℃) and are often used for holiday use. Examples of entry level regulators are the Scubapro MK2 EVO R195, the Mares Dual ADJ 52x and the MK 11 with C370.
Scubapro MK2 EVO R195
This regulator is ideal for divers who want to keep their dives simple and affordable. The MK2 EVO and R195 together form a reliable system that is easy to maintain and use. This regulator has a larger piston than other regulators, which ensures better breathing performance.
Mares Dual ADJ 52X
The Dual ADJ regulator is ultralight with adjustable breathing comfort. All this combined with the 52X, a first stage including a tri-material valve for the utmost reliability and safety, and dual DFC ports for the very best performance!
Scubapro MK11 C370
The balanced diaphragm MK11, with its chrome-plated brass body specially designed to reduce size and weight, is an ideal travel companion.
