Blow a whistle and everyone hears it, even if splashing around in water, but not underwater???????????

so how does the ref call attention?

Thanks

The in-water refs hold up arms to call the attention of the out-of-water marshall/timekeeper, who is positioned on the side of the pool. At this station there is a clanger (a sort of short hanging scaffold pole), that is tapped heartily with a metal hammer. The resulting clang 9is clearly heard below water and the players yield the game play and look up from the water.
One of the in-water refs will be using arm signals of various types to indicate the reason for the 'whistle', any penalties that are to be prescribed and then who is to take the 'starting puck-off' to resume play.

Some competitions and perhaps very rich clubs (are there any?) may well have underwater buzzer systems.... but the principal remains similar.

Hope helps
Stephen
