[IP] water proof/water tight

Hey this discussion is just semantics.  Summer calls a pump waterproof if
she can submerge it.  Because in the US it seems more people have lawyers
than indoor plumbing, companies are careful about their claims.  There are
people that would go SCUBA diving with a pump and then say "but it was
waterproof!"  So we now dig out weasel words.  Likewise when many H-tron
plus pumps were found to have hairline cracks near the battery compartments
(can everyone say "overtorquing") Disetronic advised everyone that the
H-tron was no longer recommended for use around water when it had been one
of the first "waterproof"  pumps (i.e. originally you could swim or shower
with it and no special case was required).
