One fix for a misbehaving bottom timer
So, this morning we did a very enjoyable (despite a murky green plankton layer) 90 minutes on our local purpose-sunk dive wreck, on a hot sticky early autumn day. My Uwatec Digital 330 bottom timer enjoyed itself so much, it didn't want the dive to end, and 6 hours later it was still intermittently dipping to 1.5m and counting up the time.
On a whim I put it in the fridge. And I don't know if it was because the internal pressure dropped as the temperature reduced or something, but it very quickly returned to normal. Based on a sample size of one, obviously, but who knows, could be worth trying next time your BT misbehaves...
