Re: [IP] Waterproof Letter dor D-Ready for U

I was told to put the red thing in (tappett) and put it in a baggie for a
shower. i always changed my sites after a shower anyway so I never have the
pump on during a shower. I was told  it was water resistant but not water
in my situation the D rep expressed to me it was not water proof.
Personally I don't even take my MM pump in the water or shower. I either
take a pump break totally or disconnect now. I prefer the pump break :)
If the MM is so waterproof i wonder why they offer a waterproof case? Never
wondered that til now.
