UNDERWATER SCIENCE

Many potential divers have experienced ear pain when diving down in a swimming pool because they did not properly equalize the pressure in their ears.

Can You Equalize Your Ears?

Right about now, you are probably wondering if you can equalize your ears. Try this: pinch your nose closed and gently breath out against your pinched nostrils. You should feel something happen in your ears as they equalize. Ear pressure equalization is usually accompanied by a popping/clicking/“poof” sound and a sensation of fullness in the ears.
