Gas Volume Calculator

Estimate your dive's required gas volume for the bottom time by using the Surface Air Consumption (SAC) rate. SAC rates are commonly measured in liters per minute (e.g., 15 liters/minute), providing valuable insights for precise dive planning.

A typical scuba cylinder, with a capacity of 12.2 liters, holds enough compressed air to provide around 2676 liters of breathing gas.
