IntroductionAtomic Aquatics is known for producing high-quality scuba equipment, and the T3 regulator is no exception. The company’s commitment to quality is reflected in its impressive lineup of regulators, where the T3 reigns supreme. With the vital task of providing air to divers underwater, the importance of a reliable regulator cannot be overstated.
Overview of the RegulatorThe T3 regulator stands out for its use of titanium, an extremely strong yet lightweight metal, in its construction. Designed to withstand heavy-duty use, this regulator boasts a level of durability and resilience that’s rare in the market. The only negative to it’s titanium construction is that you can’t use Nitrox above 40%. Because of this, it’s not a good choice if you’re going to pursue tech diving.
