RE: [IPk] Swimming/bathing without pump

I never where my pump in the  shower. That's what the cap is for. Espescially
for swimming. Just take the pump off and put the cap on. Then after swimming
or a bath or shower take the cap off and put the pump back on.

Being off the pump for 15 minutes or so for a shower doesn't effect my blood
sugars in any noticable way.
