Like the name already says the O-Ring is a ring-shaped seal. This is often made of plastic, rubber or   silicone. Depending on the material, the hardness of the seal differs (shore scale).

Where can you use an O-Ring when diving?

These can be found in regulators, lamps, cylinder valves and casings of your instruments.

What is important to know about them?

O-Rings will only work as long as they are clean. Therefore it is necessary to have them checked on a regular basis. Your favourite Diving School or Dive-Professional will be able to help you with that.

O-Rings for your underwater camera

Especially the ones of your underwater camera should be checked for minor cracks, cleaned and greased a little after every dive! Otherwise they might not stand the pressure during your next one.
