    Hi guys just after some advice. Currently use Dexcom G4 linked to Animas Vibe and noted that whilst sensor is waterproof the pump fails to get a signal after a short time when submerged in water whist I bathe. Do you know of any recommended patches that would keep the sensor dry? Reason I'm asking is that will be going to Jamaica in March and temp will be in late 20's and plan to be swimming etc and really need my pump to get a continual signal as no doubt will need to adjust basal rates because of heat. Advice very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :)
