Sling tanks are often carried by divers at dive sites that are relatively deep.The air consumption rate is higher at deeper depths than at shallower depths, and decompression stops are often required before surfacing. A sling tank constitutes a completely independent air supply system that can be used in cases where a diver runs out of air before fulfilling his deco stop obligations or in case of a regulator malfunction.
