You should not need the pump in the water. You loose a "ton" of 
energy with skin contact to water and are more likely to need carbs 
than insulin. Hey... make sure and tape a tube of glucose gel to your 
BC and your buddy's BC in case you get low while snorkling. BTDT with 
Lily once on a night Scuba dive. She popped the top on the glucose 
and did it underwater. Worked great. Used the same method once while 
"tubing" on the American river. Cold water, a couple of miles from 
the exit point. A bit of duct tape will stick glucose to just about 
anything.   ;-)
