I know my suit has some leaks, and i know about where they are, but I am having a difficult time pinpointing them. In the legs and arms I just turn the suit inside out and fill the limb with water and look for it coming through the fabric. But for leaks in the middle of the body the water weight and the awkwardness of trying to hold the suit up gets problematic. Advice? Ideas?

I have just been using Aquaseal over the holes and it works well - is there a better option?

Spray it down with soapy water. Pressurize by pulling neck gasket over mouth. Squeeze either by sitting down or squeezing arms. Look for bubbles. in the soapy water. The added bonus is that your gear gets de-funked.

spray with soapy water. Eat a pot of beans and then put on drysuit and let nature take its coarse. For faster results add cabbage to the mix.

Soapy water will not help the water repellency. I believe kokotat seals the gaskets and then fills the thing with water to find leaks. If it is a kokotat, Id send it in and for around $125 you will have a rebuilt drysuit.
