Re: [IP] pump question



I have worn both the Animas and the Disetronic pumps.  They have both been
to the beach in Galveston with me and I have worn both of them while I was
fishing in the surf, as well as I have worn both of them at Six Flags
AstroWorld in Houston.  I not sure what the problem is with the MM pumps?
