Since early July I've stopped reading all the mail on the main IP list.  But 
last week I had a chance to go in and read a bit from the archives and it 
seems that there has been a lot of discussion about this issue.  Apparently 
 Medtronic now says that the Paradigm is NOT waterproof, after many, many
due to water penetration this summer.  Read about it for yourselves, or phone 
the company for their latest info on this topic.  We have a Disetronic, so I 
haven't done this myself.
