    As you've got UE in Portland you can add:
    Skin Deep
    24l new mix of 21/35 £51.50
    24l remix of 21/35 £40 (100 bar or more with same or leaner helium)

    Leaner? Surely that’ll be same or richer helium?

    Nope, target mix the same or leaner % helium than current fill.

    ok that makes sense, the way you had written it "100 bar or more with same or leaner helium" made it sound like I could turn up with 100bar of something with a smidge of helium (being a leaner mix than what I wanted) and then benefitting from a reblend price. I guess it's just the way I was reading it.

    :cool: The joys of posting a summary rather than the full statement!

    Also, whilst some places feel they need hours to do trimix, Oona will do you a mix (or a remix) pretty quickly, and it will be right!

    I like it when she has to stand on a chair to reach the valves on the J's as she can't reach otherwise, makes me chuckle.

    24 litres of 21/35 = £40 from my local BSAC club (provided you're a member and have done the blending course)

    Forgive me if I don't add that to the list. Interesting though, if i end up doing more of this kind of diving then it could pay to look at clubs.

    It’s not just the cost though. If you’ve a local club that has helium it could save hours worth of travelling time over the course of a season.

    I'm not including the gas supply in my garage either. That saves me a lot of time, and my nearest gas station is 2 miles away! :D

    I know. Having such good facilities, as well excellent diving options, is a disincentive to travelling.

    Kent diving - £114 for a twinset of 21/35 so they are currently winning the "most expensive trimix in SE England" award, but...

    G & H - £42.80 for the same. I got the guy at G & H to double check and he did, although I'm not 100% sure he charged for the O2 - but even if you add a few quid on to it it's still a great deal. He said they get gas super cheap because they piggy back on the engineering stuff that the company also does.

    I need to find G&H. Kent Diving were ok but they’ve upped there prices this year. Out of Portland on 19th and going a day early to sort gases as it’s cheaper darn sarf.

    Useful thread. Am based equi-distant to Portland and Vobster. Both feel like a long schlepp just to get fills, but I have half a dozen tanks sitting empty. Have been ringing around a few other places and found nobody else who can (a) do it while you wait and (b) doesn't charge a load more than everyone else

    What's Vobbie's pricing like? (for a 'standard' 21/35 phill)
