Scuba Dive Planner is a digital decompression table, made using general public information, most compatible with PADI diving tables, but it is comparable with most of the current diving organizations and their dive tables. Recreational dive planners are decompression tables in which non-stop time under water is calculated.The Scuba Dive Planner can be used to practice for your dive certification exams, and can be used as a general guide for planning dives.
Scuba Dive Planner works only for diving with air (21% Oxygen) filled tanks, and is not made to be used when diving on enriched air (nitrox) or any other type of mix. Please note that when diving on an altitude, special considerations must be taken into account, and different dive tables should be used.
Dive computers use much more sophisticated algorithms for calculated non-decmpression limits, based on the whole dive, whereas the recreational dive tables are much more conservative and assume a square profile dive where the diver spends the entire dive at one depth.
