dome port slow leak

Recommended Posts

My sea & sea fisheye dome port has a pinhole leak in the potting mounting the acrylic dome to the port body. Anybody have any suggestions on the proper adhesive to use for the repair?

I had the exact same problem. Tried some different adhesives like Aquasure and two component adhesive but without any luck.

I was told it was due to inside pressure due to dome attached to housing during travel, allthough i have always removed my dome from the housing when traveling...

I ended up in buying a new dome port :unsure:

I remember talking to Kevin at Aquaphot (UK) about these adhesives. I'm pretty sure that it can be repaired but I'd find a professional who understands just what is involved to do the repair. The adhesive was an odd one - I'm think he said that ports are economic to repair though even if they need re-seating altogether.

I had the exact same problem too.

My dome port leak only with little presure.

I 've repaired it with a marine silicone, i've no remove the dome from the port. just remove the Adorn sun and put a marine silicone.

I've do it 2 years ago, but no pb!
