Hi all:

 

I have just recently gotten an E-M1 housing and also the vacuum system.  Finally got around to setting it up and am encountering a problem (I think).

 

I can create a vacuum and get the light to go green, but then it stays green (showing vacuum) even if I release pressure through the valve or open the housing. The housing is also easier to open than I would have thought.  It would appear to me that the housing would give me no warning if vacuum was lost prior to or on a dive.

 

The moisture alarm works fine.

 

I will contact Reef tomorrow I suppose but thought I would see if anyone had any quick suggestions.  Perhaps I am doing something wrong?

Well I guess problem is solved.  In case it is of assistance to anyone else, apparently the vacuum system will not work at altitude.  Since I live at several thousand feet above sea level, I cannot run the system at home but am assured it will work fine at sea level.
