Cleanliness is imperative in maintaining and handling diving system components. All
tools and parts must be kept free of oil, grease, rust, or other contamination in
accordance with accepted Army diving cleaning procedures. Foreign substances within
an assembly could result in equipment failure and possible injury or death to personnel.
Ensure that all air lines and components removed or openings into the air system that

taped shut. Small components should be stored in a plastic bag and sealed. Failure to
