One of the ways you can ensure that your buoyancy compensating device (BCD) is operating properly is to  make sure that you properly clean and inspect the BCD after diving. First you will want to clean out your bladder. If you’ve been diving in salt water it is important that you drain and rinse out the bladder to avoid salt crystallization inside. Also, make sure that the over pressurization valve (OPV) is operating properly. Rinse your low pressure inflator valve to remove any salt residue or sand. Check the velcro and buckles for any issues. Properly cleaning and checking your BCD after diving is an important step to ensure you are ready for your next dive.

A tank breaks loose in the sphere and renders the hatch inoperable. That means they can’t bring Mike up.
