using the rebreather is not simple ....
Before you use the rebreather, you need to open the valves, fill the loop and calibrate the O2 sensors.
Also, you need to be be familiar with diving with gasses with high concentration of O2.
Maybe you could start by taking our Introduction to Nitrox class

I used TechDoubles on my back with the following trimix: 16% O2 & 45% HE
Then I had 2 stage tanks:
1 had 36% O2 Nitrox (EAN36)
the other had 27% Nitrox (EAN27)

Start the dive breathing the EAN36. Once you get to around 95 feet deep in the cave, switch to the EAN27. Then once you get to somewhere around 140 ft deep, switch to the trimix. Use the trimix all the way to the end of the cave.

Then on your way back up, switch back to the EAN27 at around 140 feet, and then to EAN36 at around 95 feet. Remember to do all the decompression stops that your dive computer tells you to do. I used the Shearwater Predator, but there are other trimix computers on ediving.

You switch gases using the 'E' key, by the way, if you did not know.

before you do this in real life .... get trained on Trimix from a qualified instructor!

yes i should add a disclaimer! I am not trained in trimix or technical diving at all. I just have a basic theoretical understanding with Nitrox & Trimix in the ediving sim. There is no way I would ever attempt something like this in real life!
