Learn how to set your dive computer to use Enriched Air. Learn what percentage is best for the depth you are planning to dive and learn how to analyse the contents of your Scuba Cylinder. Perth Scuba has its very own banked Nitrox at 32%, so you can come in and fill your cylinder in only a minute – PLUS your cylinder doesn’t need to be O2 Cleaned!!! Come and give Nitrox a try with Perth Scuba, you’ll increase your bottom time and safety too!
