I have Animas Ping, and depending on the circumstance it can see a lot of water time. If I am swimming laps for an hour, i’ll take it off. But as an example I did a swim/run event recently that took me four hours over 10 miles of running and two miles of swimming. I didn’t want to disconnect that long, so I had a small pocket in my shorts that held my Ping, which was delivering 60% of basal during the event.
I am looking to get a new pump, this one is 4+ years old, and I like a lot of what Tandem offers in the X2, but i’m afraid Water resistant for 3 feet for 30 minutes won’t cut it… (coincidentally, I think water got in my Ping, which caused some corrosion and is now responsible for it ‘acting up’ lately).
Anyway, has anyone found a solution to water proofing their Tandem? Even temporarily? can I rubber cement or hot glue the charging port just for races? Are there cases that’ll accomplish that?
Thanks for any feedback!
