"Djinn, I am glad that you at least took a look at it. It works very well for me, though yes, it does tend to ride up a bit. I should add though that the only time it rides up on me is when I go to sleep. During normal daily use, it seems to stay put…"

"I use a T:Slim with Inset 32" tubing. I usually just run the tubing from my pocket UNDER my belt to lessen the catching risk and then back down inside my clothing to the site. While this did work quite well, I did have a pair of jeans modified…"

Jay, it happened again. That's 6 resiviours it failed on. Tandom replaced the pump and so far so good over the last week even with the carriages from the lot that was failing. Another weird thing is my sugars have been dead on good since I started the new pump. Makes me wonder if the one that was giving me loading issues had more than just that wrong. Well good luck and hope you contacted them.
