Please follow these recommendations:
The first thing to do after the dive is to rinse the unit off in fresh water. Submerge the unit and let it soak for a couple minutes. While the unit is soaking, agitate it gently. This will help flush out any salt residue. Lay the unit out and let it air dry; this allows water in inaccessible areas to evaporate. .
