I don't see the gasket on your door. Did you take it off?

Re: Supersuit leaks on scuba dives

Gasket on the door is on...difficult to si from this angle.... tryed to post a video showing the water in motion...but did not work.... 
The gasket has also specian silcon fat for diving..and I'm sure no water is coming in there
