Improved Useability

No more trying to press a button with cold fingers. The DiveAlertPLUS v.2 is activated by squeezing the device in your hand.

Easy Maintenance

The DIveAlertPLUS v.2 can be assembled or disassembled with simple tools.

Streamlined Design

Smaller, slicker, and just plain snazzier.
DiveAlertPLUS is a specially designed, small, light weight pneumatic signaling device that uses quick-connect/disconnect hose couplings to become an integrated part of your power inflator. Installation is easy and takes only a moment.

DiveAlertPLUS uses a small amount of air from your SCUBA tank to make a piercingly loud sound in air or water. People have been able to hear a DiveAlertPLUS one mile away from a diver in need above water. In conditions where visibility is limited, a DiveAlertPLUS can be a life saver. Underwater you can sound for attention quickly with a squeeze of the device.

Maintenance

After each use, DiveAlertPLUS should be rinsed with fresh water. This is especially important after use in chlorinated swimming pools and in other water having corrosive substances. Additionally, it is highly recommended that you blow the water out of DiveAlertPLUS before storing. This can be done by pressurizing and activating both the surface and subsurface signaling elements. We recommend that you cup your hand over the surface signaling element to muffle the loud noise.

Fits All Standard Inflators

DV2

Fits SeaQuest AirSource 1&2, Zeagle Octo-Plus, Oceanic Air XS & MARES AirControl AirSource 3 QD

DV3

Fits ScubaPro Air 2, Tusa Duo-Air Atomic SS1, Sherwood Gemini, and Zeagle Octo-Z

NO MODS REQUIRED

DiveAlertPLUS does not require any modification to your equipment, and it does not interfere with the normal operation of your equipment. The DiveAlertPLUS comes in three different models to accommodate different connectors: DV1, DV2, and DV3.

 

EASY TO USE DESIGN

Once the tank is turned on and the DiveAlertPLUS connected, squeeze the DiveAlertPLUS softly underwater for a subsurface signal. Or squeeze it firmly on the surface for a loud surface signal blast. Check that DiveAlertPLUS is installed correctly and functioning properly before every dive. Also be careful not to point DiveAlertPLUS toward yourself or toward anyone who is in close proximity to you when you activate the surface signal (it’s really loud!).

 

HOW IT WORKS

The DiveAlertPLUS uses chrome-plated brass couplings to attach to your power inflator. Squeezing the device engages the actuator valve stem causing a small amount of air to flutter a stainless steel diaphragm, emitting a piercingly loud sound from the injection-molded thermoplastic body. The subsurface / underwater signal is produced by a percussion "buzzing" noise made by a piston hitting a stainless steel diaphragm much like a drum.

DiveAlert is a specially designed, small, light weight air horn that uses quick-connect / disconnect hose couplings to become an integrated part of your power inflator and buoyancy compensator.  Installation is easy and only takes a moment.

DiveAlert uses a small amount of air from your SCUBA tank to make a piercingly loud sound. People have been able to hear a DiveAlert one mile away from a diver in need. In conditions where visibility is limited, a DiveAlert can be a life saver.

Maintenance

After each use, your DiveAlert should be pressurized and rinsed with fresh water with the rest of your gear. Make sure that before every dive you check that DiveAlert is installed correctly and functioning properly. When testing, be careful not to point DiveAlert toward yourself or toward anyone else or loss of hearing could result.

NO MODS REQUIRED

DiveAlert does not require any modification to your equipment, and it does not interfere with the normal operation of your equipment. The DiveAlert comes in three different models to accommodate different connectors: DA1, DA2, and DA3.

 

EASY TO USE DESIGN

Simply press the orange button to create a piercingly loud sound. Do not point the DiveAlert towards anyone, as it could cause hearing damage. It is that loud.

 

HOW IT WORKS

The DiveAlert uses chrome-plated brass couplings to attach to your power inflator. The activator button engages a chrome-plated brass actuator valve stem causing a small amount of air to rush by a stainless steel diaphragm, emitting a piercingly loud sound from the injection-molded thermoplastic body.

The DiveAlert SMB.LED (surface marker buoy) features Closed-Circuit (one-way valve) construction, which prevents air spill at the surface. Inflate on the surface to attract visual attention or redundant flotation. Inflate at depth to send up as a surface marker and illuminate at night.

 

Six waterproof LED lamps powered by a twist on (2) AAA battery power supply. Solas reflective tape (Coast Guard approved) across the top of the SMB creates better visibility day and night. An Over-Pressure Valve (OPV) prevents bursting and easy air dumping. 65 inches long x 8 inches wide = approximately 40 lbs. of lift. Nylon strap handle on top allows for easy attachment of light or slate. 400 Denier polyurethane coated nylon material.

DURABLE CONSTRUCTION

Made of 400 Denier polyurethane coated nylon, this SMB will last dive after dive without issue. The nylon strap on the top allows for attachment of a light or slate.

 

INFLATOR VALVE

Inflation of the SMB can be done in any circumstance. You can inflate the SMB with your BC inflator hose, by mouth, or by a second stage regulator.

 

LED's

With a twist of the switch, the six LED's clearly mark your location to the dive operators or other boaters on any night dive.

Testimonials
"At Cocos Island the currents can be wild. I surfaced over 100 yards away from the pickup Zodiac. One blast from my DiveAlert and they saw me. It’s simply attached, effective and could be a life saver. I wouldn’t leave home without it."

Stan Waterman

Underwater Cinematographer
"Our continuing commitment to safety demands that all rental regulators aboard our vessels be fitted with the DiveAlert! I am confident in my conviction to personally endorse this product. DiveAlert is the seat belt of diving."

Peter A Hughes

President, DivEncounters Inc.
"It's with us on every dive. Incorporating one into your dive system is simply smart insurance."

Howard & Michele Hall

"DiveAlert probably kept me from being eaten by a crocodile or by a horde of mosquitoes. With DiveAlert the tender quickly found me and turned what could have been an all-night stay in a Raja Ampat mangrove swamp into a non-issue."

Norbert Wu

Underwater Photographer
"Without DiveAlert, I might still be floating off the coast of Costa Rica. I was too far away for my safety sausage, but DiveAlert caught the boat's attention. I thank you. My Mom thanks you. We now require DiveAlert of all our guests on every trip."

Chris Newbert

Underwater Photographer
"The persistent charges of a dozen agitated sharks forced me to surface from a decompression dive prematurely. It was a bad situation, but it would have been unthinkably worse had I not been carrying DiveAlert."

Richard L. Pyle

Ichthyologist
"We specialize in adventuresome diving whether it’s the icebergs of Alaska or the friendly giants of Socorro. The one thing that remains the same is that we require our guests to carry DiveAlert."

Mike Lever

Captain and owner, Nautilus Explorer
"When the chips are down my DiveAlert Plus just might prove to be the most valuable piece of diving equipment I own. Why wouldn’t it be part of my gear package?"
