How To Equalize Your Ears

Because of the pressure that water causes on the eardrums, you need to be able to equalize when diving. It's similar to "popping" your ears while flying. Here are a few easy steps to equalise your ears.

Here's How:
- Descend into the water.
- Lightly pinch your nose.
- You may either swallow or gently blow against your pinched nose.
- Continue the technique as you descend or as needed.

Do not wait until you feel pain or discomfort to equalize.
Colds, allergies, and sinus problems make the situation worse.
