Human beings were created to live on land, however, due to increased knowledge they can now go deep seas and make discoveries. There are a lot of things which have not been discovered in the oceans and sea, and marine biologists together with other scientists are making efforts to explore the large water bodies. But before any person dives below the ocean, he or she must some gears meant for diving. The main thing that every diver must-have when going below the water is a wetsuit. There are many reasons why divers are advised to put on wetsuits when going under the water, some of these reasons are discussed in this article.
A diver who wears wetsuit will stay warm even he or she goes under the ocean where the temperatures of the waters are low. The temperature in the environment will change as the seasons also change. Since environmental temperatures also affect the water, the temperatures of the water will also change as the season changes. Therefore, when a diver goes below the sea during the time the temperature is low, he or she will be feeling the cold and may not be able to stay long below the waters. But if the diver puts on the wetsuit, he or she will not feel the cold and so can stay below the waters for a long time. The fabric used to make the wetsuit will insulate the body of the diver and make the person stay warm under the water.
Wetsuits have also been shown to increase the buoyancy of the divers. If the buoyancy of the swimmer is increased, the person will swim with a lot of ease as compared to when the buoyancy of the person is low. And according to research, it has been shown that wetsuits can increase the buoyancy. So any diver with a wetsuit will find it easy to swim below or above the water. Because the wetsuit increases the buoyancy, the diver will, therefore, useless effort when under the water than when he or she was without the wetsuit.
When swimming under the water the wetsuit has been shown to keep divers safe. Below the seas, many sharp rocks and other dangerous fish are found. The ocean currents some tines can get strong and push you towards a rock that can cut your skin. However, if you put on a wetsuit your body will be kept safe from the abrasion of the currents, the deadly bites of the jellyfish and other sea creatures.
These are the advantages of wearing wetsuits when diving below the water.
