Waterproof Pack's, too expensive!

I am going on vacation and will be snorkeling and swimming. I know that animas pumps are waterproof, but a few years ago, I had a scare when it malfunctioned under water and they had to overnight me another one.

Hey Kalia! Thanks for adding me as a friend. Were you on the pump when we were in Pam's Algebra class together? Forgive me for being slow to remember. Having seen Megan's comment on FB about it going off in Alice's class, I'm starting to remember. :)
