Is the t:slim X2 insulin pump waterproof?

Tandem pumps are watertight (IPX 7), tested to a depth of three feet for up to 30 minutes. Users can have peace of mind knowing that their pump is safe in the event of accidental submersion.  We do not recommend users shower, bathe or swim with their Tandem pumps.

NOTE:  Watertight and waterproof are not the same.  Tandem pumps are watertight.

NOTE:  If vents on the pump become completely blocked, which can happen with water, a false altitude alarm will be triggered which requires removal of the cartridge to reset.
