Supersuit leaking

I bought the GoPro Black 7 and the supersuit for my diving trip in Raja Ampat this week. It worked great for the first two days of diving but on the third day the supersuit leaked and the GoPro wouldn’t turn on. I changed the backdoor and tested it for a couple of hours in the sink. It didn’t leak, however, it did when I took it diving. I was diving with mantra rays and couldn’t film it. I was guttered. Has this happened to anyone else? I’m so upset.

Re: Supersuit leaking

If the White gasket isn't completely inserted, is facing the wrong way (flat side to the door, round side to the housing), or is dirty (even a small hair can compromise the seal) then water can get inside.
