A scuba (or diving) regulator plays a primary role in reducing pressurized breathing gas into ambient pressure and delivering it to the diver. Most scuba regulators are 2-stage regulators with a single hose that connect by one of the standard connectors, a Yoke or DIN. Yoke valves are the most popular, but DIN systems are the most trusted amongst technical divers. Most single-hose regulators have an emergency valve and hose, typically referred to as the octopus. Scuba regulators are a divers lifeline while underwater, so finding the right one is extremely important.
