the gauge that hubby got me has some grit it looks like in the groove between the top and bottom parts. Do I use a small piece of card stock to move that grit out or should i just use the kitchen faucet hose and rinse it out? it just looks like dust and some sand...

Can you take a picture of it? I'm not really sure what you mean by the "top and bottom parts." For most sand/grit issues, vigorous agitation in a bucket of fresh water followed by a long soak in the same water should be sufficient.

It's probably sand, rinse it well in strong running water and it should be fine. I had a compass once get sand lodged in it and prevent it's rotation, a strong rinse fixed it.

Sand can only get where water travels, so if sand got there you can rinse it out with water.

Take it down to 475' and swish it back and forth.

If that does not work, while your down there take your reg out and try to blow the grit out.........

Might as well rinse out your BC while you're there!

but she stated that she gets payed to keep slow moving forums alive... this is not a slow moving place... it's actually hard to keep track of all the stuff that happens between the guys going to the girls room, and the girls making fun of us for whatever one of us did... oh, and some scuba stuff happens too from time to time.
