    I am like many others, If it ain't broke don't fix it. Over greasing o'rings is almost as bad as under greasing them.
    I am also an advocate of not servicing your housing. I had two cast housings over 20 years and never touched them apart from occasional greasing of o'rings. No leaks.
    My first leak EVER in a housing was this year when a small amount of water drops (bout 3-5) got in. took the port out and greased and reset it - tested it OK and the housing leaked in a different spot.
    I have been diving in Lembah and Bali for the last 7 or 8 years and the very fine silt that Chris mentioned built up and caused problems. I took the opportunity to upgrade all my gear to EM5 mk2 so start again with a new housing.
