    • Leak testing: Nothing is worse that having a leaky drysuit.  Our drysuit techs start with a leak test before doing any work to a suit, to let you know full extend of repairs needed. After testing we can tell you exactly where the suit is leaking and if it's worth to repair it.  Our techs are able to find even the smallest of holes that might not let water in yet but are likely to become a problem.  We have a hydrostatic machine that can test weak spots in materials. We evaluate the state of the zipper, wrist and neck seals, boots/socks, seams, valves and the overall condition of the suit material.  

      Our Techs will complete a final leak test after completeing the repair work to ensure your suit is returned completely dry.  There is no charge for this 2nd leak test.
