Scuba diving regulator sets are an essential component of your diving equipment, acting as the lifeline between you and your air source underwater. The regulator connects to your dive tank and together, they make up a self-contained breathing apparatus that allows you to breathe comfortably while diving.
The combination of a first-stage regulator and primary second stage regulator is commonly referred to as a regulator set. Here we have regulator sets where a matching emergency Octopus second stage regulator has been added.
The compressed air inside scuba tanks is stored at extremely high pressures. This could, in turn, cause injury if the air is breathed in directly from the tank. Your first stage regulator reduces the pressure of the compressed air to make breathing underwater possible. The primary second stage regulator is the one you typically breathe from. In the event of an air-related emergency, you'll be glad to have a spare second stage regulator (or scuba Octopus) with you.
