Caution: Depth Rating
There any many different variations of this style of dry canister on the market. None came with a depth rating from the suppliers/manufacturers. All say these dry canisters are for use when on or near water, and not designed for underwater use.
Our diving customers kept telling us that they were using this dry canister while scuba diving to significant depths without any issues. However, we were still reluctant to advise our diving customers to use these products underwater.
We suggested to the supplier of this dry canister that they pressure test it to determine a depth rating. They successfully static depth tested it to 80 metres without the dry canister failing. Thus they have given it a depth rating of 40 metres. Make of this what you will, however we're now prepared to say you might be able to successfully use this dry canister to recreational diving depths of 30 to 40 metres, if you do so carefully, following all of the instructions above.
