What is the funniest mishap you’ve had with your drysuit when diving or cleaning it?

Had a dive partner zip me up, unfortunately it was the outer zipper that protected my dry zip. Good thing it was a walk in shore dive. As soon as I felt the water I knew what happened , I walked out and had someone else re zip for me on shore.

@hbzeke Since I had a similar experience, I always double check the zip 😉

What is the best way to check for leaks on a dry suit?

Block the neck and cuff seals with whatever you have to hand like empty drinks bottles, close the dump valve and inflate the drysuit. Once inflated, spray the suit with a soapy solution and look for any bubbles.

The leaks don’t always come from exactly where you get wet on the inside so, spray the whole suit until you see a stream of bubbles.

What about the latex in the wrist and neck? Why would you not submerged the drysuit and rinse inside too? It will dry on the inside over the night?

Some manuals indicate that after rinsing the inflator valve, it should be connected to a tank and blown dry. I’m assuming this is only necessary if the environment is humid and air drying is very slow. Is this correct?

Advised by HotnDry Drysuits AU to gather neck & wrist seals and, squeezing tight to stop splashes, dunk in a tub to just below the seals. Then hang upside down until dry. Gets the water between the inner and outer shell.

To hang a suit with soft booties from a dry suit rack, you can insert shoe trees into the inside of the booties and they’ll act just like a dry suit with hard boots.
Depending on the size of suit you could even use a couple of tennis balls or baseballs.

always run a bit of warm water through Pee valve as well. I use a syringe to flush it out!

Great advice. Nothing worse than trying to get water from drysuit rock boots out in a humid area. Takes ages!

When you don’t have integrated boots, put a dishrag in each foot and it will hang fine from that hanger.

Quick question… regarding dry suit storage what’s best? Hung up or folded?

I try to always use seal saver on my neck and wrist seals when storing. Also never store in the vicinity of petroleum products. They will eat your seals up
