In diving equipment everything has a utility and not least are the fins , mask and diving tube , but what care should we give them to always keep them in good condition?
Spraying the mask, tube, and fins with a hose is just the beginning. To make sure all the sand and salt are removed, you should give them a good soak by submerging them in fresh water.
Inspect all the belts. Stretch them out and look for cracks and small tears. If in doubt, replace them immediately.
Does water get into the mask? Look for cracks in the skirt or a crack in the frame near the faceplate. Either problem means it’s time for a switch to a new mask.
Don’t let the silicone rest against the neoprene; The silicone will end up fading.
Storing masks, snorkels and fins
Protect the mask, tubes and fins from light, heat and fumes as you would with other equipment. Don’t stack heavy objects on top of them.
The fins must be flat, not standing on their tips, since the bent tips will remain as if it were “part of the same fins”.
