Hi there!

I noticed that BCD manufacturers rate the lift capacity in pounds.

I am wondering if the number given is for salt water or fresh water ...

In theory the BCD generates a volume displacement and the lift is equal to the weight of the water displaced. And we all know that the weight of fresh water is less than salt water.

Any input?

Thanks
