I wanted something to show my groups to explain how to decon their gear after the adventure underground. Tell me what you think and how to improve it. I want an informative, accurate and easy to watch video.

Buddy, This looks pretty good. I hope you don't mind if I pass the link around to the caving community to get some feedback.

Thanks,
Allen

Buddy,

Two items of import on an otherwise informative video:

First, all soil, mud, etc. should be cleaned FIRST, before decontamination. The lab tests show that the organic materials can impede the effectiveness of the chemicals and/or high temperature procedures.

Second, when handling any of these chemicals, the person should protect their skin with the use of gloves (latex or equivalent) and eyes with goggles. Keep oneself safe!

Please refer to the current decon protocol on the NSS' WNS website - click on the decon link on the left hand menu.
