A movie with a diver using a DIY diving helmet seems to be drawing attention.
- Prepare a plastic bucket from your nearest hardware store to make a helmet.
- Send air into the helmet using a 12V compressor with a hose.
- Make a ballast tank in the bucket and separate it with an FRP.
- Use the wire and lever of a bicycle to control the faucet attached to the ballast tank to surface or go underground.
The one on the top seems to be the faucet. Too bad the picture’s not clear.
Let’s start diving.
Underwater. The handle controls the ballast tank. Its like the real thing.
The supporting staff with the camera is gesturing that everything is alright.
The diver responds.
Let’s try going underground.
Going to a deeper area.
You can see air exhaust from the ballast tank on the top.
There are other supporting staffs in the back of the screen.
Seen from the diver controlling the helmet and the supporting staff who look experienced and know what they are doing, it seems that the person who posted this movie is very professional. The poster himself warns people not to imitate this.
