    Personally I don't own one... But if I did... I would not dip the box until problem is sorted out.

    Time will expose the issue.

    Until then just keep "head above water"... literally.

    Unit should be fine in wet / rain I would imagine.

    The art of keeping water out of something that is submerged... truly is... an art.

    Not like MineLab has not been down this road before though.

    Well first, dont think you can scuba dive to 10 feet and be safe, There doesnt appear to be an "error factor" built in to the water resistance rating. You should be able to wade without problems, so that would be putting the controller about 2 - 3 ft under water.

    I always recommend that people water-test their machines before the warranty runs out. I would prefer to test it as soon as possible. Better to know you have a good one or get it replaced. Repeat until you have one thats dry.

    Jason in Enid is correct. I would say waterproof to a couple feet. No scuba diving with it, buy something else. And when the warranty runs out, if you haven't tested it already and it leaks you're out of luck. So protect yourself and test it now.

    I would suspect most people are just hunting at around chest deep with the head at roughly 1-2 feet under water.

    Tommy, if it doesn't leak now, sell it if you desire and don't worry about it. Irishgoldhound I'd agree with 1-2' underwater. It was not designed as a diving machine. I'm sure some folks have tried that. I don't know how they made out.

    You have a point... I agree... test before warranty is up.

    Just be ready for the wait.

    Again I reiterate... waterproofing is truly an art... and something that does not leak MAY leak later.

    It was pointed out the temperature difference creating a "vacuum"... this is very much a reality.

    So... with this in mind... test multiple times and under different circumstances... temperature wise etc.

    Sun warm / hot etc.
