Sand or Grit on Seals
Sand or grit is the enemy of seals. Correct maintenance and care is essential. To remove sand or grit from the seals, rinse the seals in fresh water and apply fresh lubricant. If there is sand inside the Battery Housing, gently brush the sand from the unit taking care not to scratch the sealing surfaces.
Be sure to keep the seals sand and grit free to ensure they keep water out and to close the vent plug after accessing the battery chamber. However, should the seals not be clean or the vent plug left open and water enter the battery chamber, your Seascooter will not be damaged as it is designed for protection against accidental flooding.
If water enters the battery chamber:
1. Remove the SEASCOOTER™ from the water if it is safe to do so. Always observe safe diving practice.
2. Remove nose cone and tip out excess water.
3. Wait two minutes for any gases to dissipate, then remove the battery.
4. If salt water has entered, rinse battery and battery housing with fresh water.
5. Dry housing and battery thoroughly.
