    Hard to give advice as there are many possibilities due to the configuration you have. Post a picture, that would help. Do you have quick disconnects on both the catheter side as well as the valve side? Is it a balanced pee valve? Is the bolt (exterior knob) closed when you do the pressure test?

    More specifics on what you have done as well as the setup would be good so that we can get you sorted and back to diving in style. Happy to help in any way I can.

    Assuming that you are pressure testing without actually wearing the suit
    I'd suggest you block the tube that attaches to the catheter as the pressure
    will be higher inside the suit and air will escape out the pee valve if it is open,
    this is quite normal as it's how the valve works.
    I would test it with the valve closed first and then with it open.
    Hope this helps.

    Its a balanced valve so when i over pressure the suit the air comes out even when the pee part is closed .

    looking at the sitech site the valve certainly appears to be some type of 'auto dump'. It wasn't clear how you might close it completely the way you can with bolt valves or the light monkey type where the external cover seals when closed.

    Given that, the best approach is to stuff something into the part of the tube that attaches to the catheter - a golf tee or chopstick or something that would seal but not damage the tubing.
