Hi all. I come here several times a week to see whats new. Here's my question. While diving in Guam I would get really thirsty. Heck the water was 84 Deg. I dive with an Oasis reg. and this helps alot. I finally gave up and started filling the bladder out of my hydro pack about 1/2 full and tucking in into my BCD pocket with the hose routed up the inflater loops. I could remove the reg and put the bite valve in and get a couple of good swallows and put the reg back/purge and go on with out any trouble. I was drinking alot on the boat. At least a quart of gatoraid between dives and water on the way out. No one had ever heard of this includeing the deck hands or the DM. Is this safe.
