Dive weight is another essential accessory in every diver's equipment. Its task is to enable free descent to a specific depth and it also balances the positive buoyancy of a wetsuit or dry suit. Dropping the dive weight makes it possible to get quickly to the water surface. However, this is done only in the case of an immediate threat to the diver's life or health. Too high ascent speed may cause decompression sickness or lead to barotrauma (pressure injury).
Diving weights are made of lead. It is a cheap material, characterised by a high deadweight, i.e. the ratio of its weight to its volume.
Diving weight belts - choose the best!
There are different types of ways to attach the weight. Until recently, the most popular were weight belts, which are fastened around the diver's hips. Any number of weights can be attached to the weight belt. In case of an emergency, this type of ballast can be easily unfastened in order to quickly ascend.
At the moment, the most popular way to attach weights is in weight pockets mounted on the wing harness or jackets. We put lead weights into those pockets, and the construction of those pockets also allows for their emergency dropping.
Moreover, divers also use fixed ballast which is installed in trim pockets and cannot be thrown off. Its task is to relieve the pressure on the waist in order to eliminate possible back pain, as well as to establish the proper centre of gravity for the entire body underwater and to achieve ideal trim underwater. Divers technically install a non-rejectable v-weight ballast on two-bladed sets to achieve ideal trim. Additionally, a heavy harness plate can be used as ballast.
As you can see, there are really many types of weights for diving. Those most often chosen by divers are ballasts put into ballast pockets, although there is still a large group of divers who use ballast belts. It is important to use coated lead ballast, which guarantees protection of the environment due to the fact that lead salts are not released. The amount of weight and its distribution are adapted to the weight of the diver and the equipment he has with him.
Beginning divers choose weight belts, and often when diving abroad, if we do not have our own equipment, it is the only option. Fortunately, divers are more and more aware and pay more attention to their comfort and position under water, so they use weight pockets, which allow any arrangement of the weight on the harness and cylinder.
