    Leaking shrimp

    Since about six dives now i have been having water entering my shrimp which now Has become quite a bit the machine holds poss and neg i have take the mouth piece off and if you suck with your hand blocking the side that goes on the shrimp it makes a vacum so i dont think it has a hole ,( with the mouth piece on the shrimp ,if i blow hard on cc in the water i get i slow stream of bubbles and with all the hoses removed and blocked when blowing hard i can feel the hear air escaping,though with the mouth piece off when l blow into the shrimp with the mouth piece off it does not leek so the mouth piece seems to be leaking around the mouth piece i have tryed to put some ptfe tape on the shrimp under the mouth piece but still no joy has any one else had this and how did you cure it,lm getting realy pissed off at it ,it was fine at the begining?

    My dive mate has the same problem developing on a Shrimp.


    We suspect that it is related with the positioning of the 2nd stage lever, needs to have a larger gap to the membrane.

    I had the same issue and resolved it by putting a small bead of silicone the shrimp before putting the mouthpiece back on. I could have put a new mouth piece on but it is a Seacure that I like a lot. Good luck!
