The waterworld represents 70% of our planet and in order to discover and protect it you have to breathe in it and ultimately you become what you breathe in!

Diverbelow was born in the crossroad of four companies with different areas of expertise that combined their efforts to present a unique-mobile-fast-solution for high quality breathing air.
Professional Diving gathered with Safety & Security Industry, blending in truck bodywork and structures builder engineering to bring to life this project.

Since 1942, when Émile Gagnant and Jacques Cousteau invented the Aqua-Lung, there is nowadays a community of aproximately 40 million active divers that spreads all over the world, and with an yearly growth of around 3 million new users that are eager to get acquainted to this “new world”.



The only way to do it is leaving nothing else than bubbles and taking nothing else than pictures, and to achieve a healthy return breathing pure air is paramount.
 
Tech specs are not the best hobby for everybody since even with the most wanted gadgets like Smartphones, people prefer to throw away the manual and opt to “learn-in-flight” than RTFM and thus when diving almost no one takes a peek to what Air Compressor is being used to fill the tanks that they will breathe from, or in what conditions it is being operated.
 
As there is an explanation why a BMW series 7 costs ten times more than a BMW series 1 (and we are not saying that one is better than the other but rather that they are built for different purposes) also in Air compressors it's the same.

For instance a small compressor is normally intended for personal or occasional filling (and thus prone to overheating and compromise sealing) and a large one for extended intensive use and their main difference sometimes is not the air flow capability but rather their endurance to withstand long operation hours in adverse conditions such as high temperature and humidity.
 
As standard Breathing Air compressors are piston types (like a car engine) and thus each piston has segment rings to seal the engine oil from entering the upper breathing air compressing chamber. Small compressors (and old ones) have fewer and smaller rings than and large compressors have more rings precisely to guarantee adequate sealing in continuous operation.
 
Also modern and bigger compressors have filters with better filtration capability along with more filtration stages in order to remove impurities and guarantee redundancy in case of early failure due to contaminants.
 
There is a reason why in your diving procedures manual they ask you to smell your air in the pre-dive check and it is not to choose from vanilla or strawberry flavor but instead to look for oily, mould or exhaust or any other odors (even like BBQ's) that can indicate some type of contamination!
 
You can say “but my normal air isn’t that filtered or cared for”, and yes it is not but at depth the increased partial pressure of each contaminant can become toxic and the normal air did not travel through an engine/compressor so extra care is needed.
 
So we do it because we also are what we breathe and in order to care for others and for our planet we must first be healthy ourselves!
