How does the GetterBack work?
As the GetterBack descends below 6 feet, water enters through a specially designed check valve and activates the non-toxic reactant. This reaction produces CO2 gas which builds pressure inside the GetterBack until it reaches 30 PSI above the surrounding water pressure, at which point the float section is deployed. As the float section rises to the surface, it unwinds the Kevlar line. Once the bright safety green float reaches the surface, it is easily spotted and retrieval of your lost Drone, fishing rod, or gear is as simple as just pulling in the line!
How long does the GetterBack take for the float to surface?
It typically takes one to two minutes, but it can take longer depending on sink rate, depth, and water temperature. A fast sink rate in warm water to 10 feet will result in the shortest time and a slow sink rate in very cold water to 100 feet may take up to five minutes.
Can I mount the GetterBack anywhere on a Drone, fishing rod, or other gear?
Yes. The GetterBack is designed to be mounted anywhere on a Drone, fishing rod, or other gear.
Is the GetterBack a one-time use product?
Yes. The GetterBack is a one-time use product. The GetterBack relies on a non-toxic chemical reaction that occurs when the unit is submerged in water. Once the chemical reaction occurs and the line is dispensed, the product is no longer functional for reuse.
Will weather affect the GetterBack?
No. Rain and high humidity will not affect it. Water only enters the GetterBack when it is below 6 feet. At 6 feet, the water pressure is approximately two and a half PSI which is a much higher differential pressure than would be experienced by driving rain or humidity changes.
