The Scorkl is safe, secure and for everyone. However, if you are not a qualified scuba diver, there are limitations on use and dangers to be aware of. Misuse of Scorkl can be dangerous.
While decompression sickness isn’t much of a chance because of the depth and time restrictions of such a small cylinder, pulmonary damage is nonetheless a risk if a user holds their breathing during ascent or rises too quickly.
Non-scuba qualified users should not use the Scorkl under 3m depth or more than five times in one day. Waiting above, 3m dramatically decreases this risk of pulmonary injury.
Each customer will be presented with an information kit notifying them of these dangers of using the Scorkl as well as plans to avoid them.
These strategies will include, but not be limited to, staying above 3m in-depth and not holding one’s breath and exhaling during ascent, and not ascending too quickly.
