There are many factors that contribute to housings buoyancy underwater. Port size is one of the key elements. The larger the port, the more air it traps inside, hence giving the overall housing more floatation. The opposite is also true, especially with the new line of compact ports. The smaller the port the less air that it traps inside the housing making the overall system less buoyant.

This is when the TLC buoyancy compensation floats can make a difference. The TLC Buoyancy Compensation Floats were designed to help remedy the issue of negative buoyancy in your system by compensating with about 1lb lift per float. These floats can be mounted on a TLC arm using a specially designed TLC arm clamp or can be mounted on the top center of an Aquatica housing (as well as other brands) using a 1" ball mount as a base.

It is recommended that one TLC buoyancy compensation float be placed at either side of the housing for better housing balance.. If you feel your system is too heavy for use over long periods of time without getting wrist or elbows fatigue, then the TLC floats may be the answer you have been looking for.
