Laundry and Cleaning
The drysuit should not be cleaned with solvents or strong detergents. Chemical substances might damage the drysuit and lead to equipment failure during diving.
After diving, if the drysuit is dirty, you can use the following steps for cleaning and disinfection:
To keep the suit clean, rinse the external part of the diving suit with clean water (especially after diving in salty water). This will remove the salt and mud from the fasteners and will limit the formation of mold, as well as the development of bacteria. Rinse with a strong stream of running water.
After rinsing, dry the diving suit. Drying the diving suit is necessary in such circumstances, where the diving suit has been flooded with water. First completely dry the inside of the diving suit followed by the same procedure with the outside. When drying, the diving suit should be hung on a wide hanger with the fasteners unzipped and all other parts of the suit hanging freely Avoid drying in the sun, near chemical substances or open fire, as well as heaters, electric engines or other devices that produce ozone. The effect of these can cause color – fading and damage elements of the diving suit.
Always rinse the latex seals with clear water and use talcum after drying.
Before diving check if the valves are tightly screwed.
After putting on the suit, verify id the dry zipper is fully closed.
If you cut a neoprene seal it is quite easy to repair it. Use needle and thread to stitch it inside and use some glue from the outside.
Read the instruction very carefully after receiving your drysuit.
Storage of a drysuit
do not fold or bend the zipper when storing the drysuit – follow the drysuit manual for correct storage.
Do not store the drysuit in temperature conditions that exceed 60°C (140°F).
Store with the zipper completely closed, taking care not to bend it. The storage in an opened position for long period will cause zipper bending which will cause leaks.
