the MiniMed is made to withstand dunkings.  water can not get to the motor and
because it has a solenoid motor concern reguarding delivery/electronics is not
an issue.  yes, salt can corrode the lead screw just as it can with any pump.
there is the 7.2 unit test one can do on the MiniMed if ever there is concern
it is not delivering as it should.
