Human beings were created in a way that they cannot stay in water, but their knowledge has made them come up things that can make them stay under the water and make discoveries. Even though there are many things which have not been discovered in the sea, many biologist and other scientists are trying to explore the seas and oceans to make discoveries. It is recommended that before a diver goes under the water, he or she should have the things necessary for him or she to be under the water for the duration he or she will take. One of the requirements that every diver should have is a wetsuit. Wearing wetsuits have a lot of advantages, and this article discusses them as shown below.
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 environmental temperature will always change as the seasons’ change. Because the sea and the oceans are also found in the environment, the temperature of the waters will also change as the seasons change. So, during the season when it is cold, the temperatures of the water will also be cold, and so a diver cannot stay below the waters for a long time. However, if the diver, puts on a wetsuit, he or she will not be affected by the cold and therefore, can stay below the water for a long time. The materials used to make the wetsuits will insulate the body, and so the diver will always feel warm even if he or she is at the region the temperatures are cold.
The other benefit of the wetsuit to the diver is that it increases the buoyancy. The buoyancy of a person swimming should be high for the swimmer to find it easy to swim, if the buoyancy is reduced, the person will find it difficult to swim. Studies have shown that wetsuits can increase the buoyancy. Therefore, a diver who wears a wetsuit will not find it difficult to swim under or an above the water. Because the buoyancy of the swimmer is increased when wearing a wetsuit, he or she will use less effort when swimming than when not putting on the suit.
The other merit of putting on a wetsuit when diving is that it will keep your safe. Under the oceans there are sharp rocks and other fish which are dangerous like the jellyfish. When swimming the strong current can push you towards a rock with can cut your body. The wetsuit will, therefore, serve to protect your body against abrasion from the currents, deadly bites of the jellyfish and other things lurking in the water.
These are the advantages of wearing wetsuits when diving below the water.
