I recall that Poseidon has a different DIN O-ring size than most others. I have used what I believe to be the "standard" DIN o-ring size and it was functional, but "popped" out a lot. So, I guess there is SOME truth, but seems pretty week to me. I don't have any Poseidon regulators anymore.

So, I saunter into the local dive shop that has more than the token bit of "tech" equipment looking for a few first-stage DIN O-rings. You know the ones...the O-ring on the exposed face of the fitting. The service guy goes through his collection of O-rings, assures me that he hasn't any, but also assures me that different manufacturers use different DIN O-rings. Now, I only use a few brands of regs with DIN fittings (Poseidon and Sherwood), but I did find it hard to believe that this could be true. Of course, I usually hold service techs in the highest regard, but this smacked of a trace of BS. Anyone out there know the truth?
