Product Highlights
  • Sachet Absorbs Minor Leaks in Housing
  • Sachet Absorbs 400x Its Own Weight
  • Reduces Condensation in Housing
  • Re-Usable After Drying
  • Suitable for DSLR & Video Housings

These Leak Insure Protective Absorbent Sachets for Underwater Housings (10 Sachets) are designed to absorb minor leaks in underwater camera housings (and other underwater equipment). Each sachet (3.54 x 1.57"/90 x 40mm) contains fast-acting granules that absorb 400 times their own weight in water (absorption capacity is 40ml/sachet). When placed in your underwater housing before a dive, a Leak Insure sachet can buy valuable time to get to the surface and save your camera if the housing starts to leak.

Not only do they absorb water from leaks--they also absorb moisture from the air in your camera housing. This helps reduce condensation forming on the walls of the housing and, more importantly, on the camera, lens and housing port. Leak Insure Sachets can be re-used if they are dried after use. These standard-sized sachets are suitable for DSLR cameras and larger video camera housings.

Disclaimer
Leak Insure Sachets are designed to give you more time to get your underwater equipment out of the water in the event of a leak. They are not a guarantee that if you get a leak they will save your underwater equipment. We accept no liability for damages caused to your equipment.

        Comments about Leak Insure Protective Absorbent Sachets for Underwater Housings (10 Sachets):

        Has worked great so far in my DSLR housing to keep the fogging away. The biggest downside is the container isn't the most convenient for storage.

            Do yourself a favor and use feminine sanitary napkins instead. Problem with this product is they bust open and spray tiny white pellets inside the housing and all over the gear inside. I am still finding residue in my lens, battery compartment, etc. Every single sachet had a split in the corner that spills the product everywhere. I threw the whole lot of these little demons right in the garbage can.

              Nikon D7000 in an Aquatica housing AD7000, took water. The Bulkhead strobe connector got loose and water went in...miracle no damage to my camera NOTHING, nor the housing thanks to your product. I had two sachets in, they absorbed all the water that went in. Great product, worth every cent and more, honestly the damage could have easily been gigantic. I highly and strongly recommend.

                Works great and reduces fog. I bought for that purpose and have not tried to see how much water they will absorb but my fogging issues are in the past!

                Perfect, because I ran out of the starter ones on my first 2 divetrip.
                Sadly I just realised after purchase, that all 10 Sachets are just in this 1 container. The container is just too big to carry withm me to each dive, so I can recomend, do not throw away the selflocking bag (or get one flat drybag - sendwichbag also works) to carry with you just a few pieces and not the whole container

                  This is the best product on the market to give you a fighting chance to save your expensive housed camera equipment. Well worth the price with huge upside advantages. As a long time underwater photographer this product is the best thing that has come along in a very long time.

                    Great for your underwater camera housing. Can handle minor leaks and also keep your housing/ports from fogging up (in warm humid locations).

                    Note: If you have a leak, you need to terminate the dive. They have their limitations
