<font color='#0000FF'>Currently after a dive I give a quick rinse of fresh water on the dock (if possible), then when I go home I get the garden hose, strip all kit down and give an individual wash.  The regs go on the sink in warm running water for a few minutes. I'm now considering in using an old barrel and place all the euipment and leave the water running for a 15 minutes or so to de-salinate.
I'm wondering if this is going over the top or if keeping to the garden hose is sufficient.

Dunking in a box full of hosewater has always been good enough for me!
I tend to spray the drysuit rather than dunk it tho..

<font color='#000080'>Well kind of a mixture of the two for me really.  

I spray the drysuit with a hosepipe (talc the seals and wax the zip once dry).

Everything else gets a rinse with the hose and then dunked in a box of water for 20 minutes.

Regs get a good rinse and the second stages are left to soak in clean water for an hour or two.
