Congratulations on your purchase of the Halcyon P-Valve. You can be confident that every effort has been made to ensure that it will function flawlessly in every diving condition.

Most drysuit divers use undergarments with a front zip design, and therefore will either have to cut another hole in the insulation (not particularly recommended) or run the tubing up over the lowest part of the zipper and down to the base unit. In any case, care should be taken to choose the location of the base unit so that un- necessary holes do not have to be repaired later. The hose that comes with your Halcyon valve will be too long for most users, but is designed to allow individuals to trim the length in accordance with the discharge Halcyon recommends using a professional punch...

If you choose not to use a punch, many divers have successfully used a variety of methods. Be certain that the method you choose gives you control over the size and shape of the hole. A hole may be burned into the suit with a pencil-style soldering iron, but great care should be taken not to burn any other areas of the suit. For this method, place a small hole in the mark made during the location selection from step one. Slowly work that hole outward by making ever-widening circles in the material. Remember that most materials will stretch, so the hole should be a little smaller than the...

Test to ensure that the external cap is able to be loosened approximately two full turns and then stops. If the cap seems to bind, back the set screw out slightly until the movement is unimpeded. Use of the set screw is optional- however it can prevent accidental loss of the cap.

bacterial growth that could contribute to a urinary tract infection. Several careful rinses of the p-valve with a mild vinegar/water solution are recom- mended after each dive. Many users have found that a standard restaurant style squeeze bottle or large bore medical syringe work well to introduce the solution through the catheter interface, and flush the valves thoroughly. Check valve replacement To inspect or replace the main umbrella valve, unscrew the button cap set screw (if used) and remove the threaded cap. Lift the edges of the umbrella valve to expose the center stem. Grasp the...
