Apollo Bio Filter

I did my AOW and Rescue classes earlier this summer, and was getting bad headaches from breathing very dry air, my throat was killing, etc. I emailed Joe, and he said that the Apollo reg had made him enjoy diving again, so I figured it would be worth a try. I bought one that night, and have used it ever since, have never had any problems, and my dad even did his OW checkout dives using my reg, just so he could see how well it works. He is now looking to buy one as well, because he liked it so much. A great buy, highly recommended. The fill valve works perfectly, and allows you to make multiple dives without breaking down the device between dives.

It is an intermediate between the first stage and the reg hose to your second stage. It works by using a wick, which you add water to, this water then evaporates into the air, making the air coming to your second stage more moist.

My Wife loves it.
Just hooked it up pn my setup last night.

Here's some details of the thing-

http://www.apollosportsusa.com/docum...3upd07mayc.pdf

It's only rated to 130fsw and not to be used with EAN over 40%..
Very easy to install, and as mentioned it helped Teresa's dry-mouth issues.

What % humidity is the air after it leaves the biofilter under normal breathing load? Has this been measured by anyone?
