P-Valve Quick Disconnect
The P-Valve Quick Disconnector with a one-way-flow is ideal for longer days, boat trips etc., where the P-valve and catheter can be disengaged multiple times, or divers can attach themselves to the P-valve hose easily.
Dispatched in 1 to 2 days
Robust P-Valve Quick Disconnector with a metal clasp differs from Quick Release Hose Connector from others in that it is a quick disconnect system with a one-way flow. As soon as the system is separated, the check valve engages and prevents any flow back.
The P-Valve Quick Disconnector is ideal for longer days, boat trips etc., where the P-valve (and catheter) can be disengaged multiple times, or divers can attach themselves to the P-valve hose easily.
The Female section has a check valve, and the Male section connects to the catheter making it a safe and convenient system to be used underwater.
How to use P-Valve Quick Disconnector
The (bulkier) female section with the quick release mechanism is normally attached to the end of the P-Valve Hose leading to the release valve on the dry suit. The (low profile) male section is then attached to the catheter to be used.
If you are using the widely popular Wideband Catheters you can trim off about 1cm of its connection point to prevent any possible kink.
With the above set, the diver is ready. A catheter is worn and kept in place (or used for discharge) without being connected to the hose.
Connecting and disconnecting the hose is very simple. It can be done inconspicuously on a boat, beach etc. by using only the plastic heads of the connectors which are visible. The system can then be disconnected for surface break (or as before, connected straight before a dive).
