Does it matter whether I use a rental BC or buy one?

Invest in a BC That Fits Your Diving Needs

Your buoyancy compensator has many vital uses. You need a scuba BCD that fits well and is in good condition. If a BC does not fit or function well, it can spoil your dive. Consider all of a BC's functions:

  • Your BC lets you control your buoyancy underwater, even while carrying heavy equipment.
  • It keeps you at the depth you want.
  • It controls your descent and return to the surface.
  • Your BC also is a life-saving service. In an emergency, you can inflate your BC.
