RE: [IPp] CGM in water

 No you don't need to take the transmitter off as the CGMS is waterproof. We do
remove the pump for bathing and swimming because minimed pump is not waterproof.
But we keep the CGMS on at all times. We get approx. 5-6 days use out of it.

I was wondering how the different CGM systems work in the pool?  We use an
Animas pump, which is water proof, so Ailsa only takes her pump and site off
to change the site every 2-3 days.  Would we have to take the transmitter
off for bath and swimming?  She doesn't shower too often as she prefers a
Octavia, mom to Ailsa, turning 5 next month (!) and pumping Animas for
almost 4 years.
