This unit uses an O-ring to maintain its water resistance. O-ring maintenance is very important. Failure to do O-ring maintenance according to the instructions may lead to water leaks and cause this unit to sink.

Inspect the O-ring

  • Carefully check that there is any dirt, sand, hair, dust, salt, threads, etc. on the O-ring. If found, be sure to wipe off with a soft cloth.
  • Lightly run your fingertip around the O-ring to check for any invisible dirt.
  • Be careful not to leave any cloth fibers on the O-ring after wiping it.
  • Check the O-ring for cracks, skewing, distortion, fine splitting, scratches, embedded sand, etc. Replace the O-ring if you find any of these.
  • Inspect the O-ring contact surface on the case body in the same way.
