In Topic: Installing Vivid Housings Leak Sentinel V3 with 5mm adapter on Ikelite 6871.0...

I was obviously referring to the non existent control, sorry for that. Lens release control seems like a good candidate for replacement, though. In fact, any control gland can be replaced, but in some cases, in order for the valve body to clear the nearby obstacles, long adapter may be needed instead of the short one.

If anybody prefers electric pump, this one works well with leak Sentinel:



It fits the pump cap without the tubing. So if the reason for leaving the housing under vacuum overnight is avoiding pumping, electric pump might be the solution, it evacuates the housing in seconds...

I am looking for a link to the electronics for 75 Euro. I have searched the site many times and can find no reference to this. 




I have added the PCB only on the Leak Sentinel's product page. I will update the website soon, until then, please contact me by email with any questions you might have.

I have already answered Pete's mail and apologized for the inconvenience.

However, his unit is one of a kind, as I have sent him an "upgrade" set of parts, which he used with previous model of electronic circuit. I did not realize the potential problem, but all other V3 units except maybe one or two, are different in that the circuit board supports the o-ring from the inside, so it can't be displaced by the water pressure.

Nevertheless, I urge all the V3 owners to contact me by e mail, as there is a simple way to check whether their unit should be sent for modification, or is safe to dive with.
