This is a good place to use the Priviledged Harmonics. These are
available on most combinations of valves and are also known as False
Harmonics. Many people find they can play bottom F on Open. If you
can find the note with false fingering practise it, and it can become
as strong (or stronger) than a correctly fingered note. All notes
from f# down to pedal C are available using this technique.
I only learnt about it recently from the Tuba-Euph mailing list but
it really does work and can be mastered pretty quickly.
