Further advice:

1) The weight of a 10 L tank with less than 50 bars at the end of the dive is reduced by 2 kg. So, donít be surprised when you feel more positive buoyant towards the end of the dive.

2) Bigger tanks are heavier due to more steel and more compressed air filling. However, the bigger tank volume contributes to positive buoyancy:

       Taking 12 L tank in stead of 10 L use 2-3 kg less (2 kg if you want to use most of the air)

       Taking 13 L tank in stead of 10 L use 2,5-3,5 kg less (2,5 kg if you want to use most of the air)

       Taking 15 L tank in stead of 10 L use 4-5 kg less (4 kg if you want to use most of the air)

3) In salt water you need ~ 2 kg more.

4) With alu-tanks you need ~ 2 kg more.

5) In a group of advanced divers you can take 1 kg less.
