I have  Vivid's V Leak Sentinel in my subal and love it. I like it better than the one that do not show you a light when all is well. I love the green light while diving-meaning all is well.

 Subal ND800- Housing
Way to many strobes to list
 subal ND800 setup with Ikelite 161 strobes
Still a film divasourus at heart in a digital world

I have the Bill Liebcap vacuum system on my Ikelite housing. The vacuum keeps it closed even if the latches are not done up. And the warning lights let me know if there is a leak.
The warning lights are important. I had vacuum sealed my housing, went for a dive and noticed moisture in the housing, The lights warned me. A slight crack in the dome, where the dome was cemented to the base was letting in a slight amount of moisture. 
I, at first thought it was condensation but the salt crystals surprised me. Leak is now fixed.
