What I read in the FAQ for the H-tron problem last night and what I read this
morning were phrased very differently . . . What I read last night explicitly
spoke about continuing to use the H-tron is the water (pool, bath, whatever)
woudl void the warranty . . .
Now the wording is more oblique -- but I believe it still boils down to the
reality that use in the water will void the warranty . . . The FAQ page has
the following Q&A:
"Question: Have the terms of the warranty changed in any way?
Answer: No. However Disetronic's warranty "is valid only if the Disetronic
insulin pump is used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions."
Then if you go to the page that outline changes in manufacturer's
instructions (revisions to the H-tron reference manual) , you find the
"9.2 Use the Pump in Water (REPLACE THIS SECTION WITH THE FOLLOWING)
9.2 Do Not Use the Pump in Water
Do not use your insulin pump when showering, bathing or swimming.
Warning! Avoid any contact of the pump with water. Water entering the pump
may result in a malfunction which could cause severe hypoglycemia (low blood
SO -- again, assuming I'm reading this right (and I really hope I'm wrong) --
since the manufacturer's instructions now tell you NOT to use your H-tron in
water, any pumper who chooses to do so from this point on is risking voiding
the warranty . . .
