Re: [IP] waterproof case for Paradigm


 Clearly you can swim with an OmniPod. No body who thinks about it at all would
even put swimming with a patch pump like the OmniPod in the same league as to
all the bother you need to go through with a tubed pump. Also even thoug I have
been on the OmniPod longer than any other paying customer I have never had a pod
fail due to exposure to water including diving. Even if a pod did fail which I
am sure Insulet would replace, the cost of a pod is only about $30, not $5000 to
$6000. I learned a long time ago that there are several on this list ( a couple
of whom use phony names) that get off bashing the OmniPod. I can't understand
why we can't have rational discussions and admit that each system may have some
good features. Personally I can't think of any feature that would get me to go
back to an older tubed design.

Sport Guard works for me. I use it when diving in the Cayman Islands and 
have used it in the Florida Gulf. It never leaked and I don't feel 
Just my feeling; pumps may be water resistant and not 100% waterproof. When 
a company puts in writing 'replacement pump free if it is damaged by water' 
I'll believe it.
