    Anyone diving this or similar? Just did my first dive on mine and when I took it out of the suit for cleaning the o ring oimage.jpgimage.jpgn the inner body was loose and not fully seeted into the groove I tried pressing it in but it would bubble up opposite to the pressure any tips on how to properly seat this o ring?

    I would say to either force the o-ring into place or buy a new one that fits better.

    You should not need to remove the valve for cleaning. You can just flush a cleaning solution through the hose to clean it. Much quicker and easier too.

    I tried forcing it, even tried placing it where it goes and screwing it down real tight to get it to seat but that didn't work either.

    The instructions that came with the valve say to disassemble the valve and steralize overnight!

    No one else using this pee valve?

    mine definitely seats better than that.... Send that picture to Dive Rite directly and ask them for help, you'll get a direct response from them...

    Took it in to my dive shop the tech said looks like its the wrong size but didn't have the correct one! Going to order a few so I have some on hand.

    Freezer? Never thought of that good idea!
