Re: [IP] Rain and pumping



Has anyone ever used a small cellphone case to keep a minimed pump  in?  I 
was wondering, beause when I shop for clothes and I try them on I  usally 
take my pump off while doing so, and I need a safe place to put it.

Water  from rain isn't really a big deal for pumps. It's immersion that 
isn't
good  for a minimed. If it has any cracks, water could get in it and damage 
 it.
There are cases available and some years back I got a Walkman type case  
with a
place for the earphone wire to come out and it works great for a  pump and
tubing. It's flexible plastic and I learned about it here -- comes  in 
handy when
I'm kayaking in case I go in the  drink.
