RE: [IP] Re: static electricity



I only had one of 508 short out from static electricity.  The MM rep I
spoke with told me it was from wearing nylon type running slacks.  She
suggested I not wear them again until spring.  The problem only occurred
in the winter and they replaced my pump with another.
