Why are you still playing with snorkels? This is SCUBA dude, compressed gas and regs, no need for snorkels anymore.

But if you must have an answer to your question, then; if the peices fit together use them, but I bet you won't find it as easy as you hope. Lots of duct-tape down that road.

Even if they don't fit, with thermoplastic and a little loc-tite, and you should be in business.

you could make a rebreather snorkle

or how about a "doubles snorkle" with an isolator valve?

You know, I've seen those pics quite a few times, and it just struck me what's with the rebreather model. NO COUNTER-LUNG! All rebreathers must have a counter-lung. That pic must be from trial stages. hehe

that doubles snorkel is awesome... isolator incase of malfunction and everything.

If you want complete redundancy, you could always wear a spare snorkle on a necklace around your neck! :smilie39:

you've never seen how some tech divers keep their spare/octo 2nd stage on a necklace around their neck?

well this the same thing for snorkels... keeps the spare handy... :smilie39:
