Regulators and cameras are the first thing I rinse when cleaning gear after a dive. The regulators get an especially thorough rinse.

130 dives would be a low dive number year for me. The past few years work has slowed an average about 170/year. I have done over 300 in a year five times.

I use high pressure (3500 psi) tanks. The stress of the high pressure is much harder on the o-rings. I also use a hose mounted console and rotate it many times per dive to see the gauges on both sides.
