All ya gotta do is make sure the batteries are tightened as tight as you can get 'em, and then you can wear it under a one-piece suit or hook it to some sort of strap you wear around your neck. Then you'll be good to go!
May be not a good idea.

Disetronic H-Tron and H-Tron plus Insulin Pumps
Incident: There have been cases where Disetronic insulin pumps have delivered more insulin than what was programmed when the patients have worn the pump while swimming or bathing. This is contrary to instructions for use of this type of device.
Recommendation: Wearing of this type of pump in the bath or whilst swimming is not recommended. The sponsor of Disetronic Insulin Infusion Pumps has issued a safety alert to all users of the pumps reminding them that they must not wear the devices when bathing or swimming.
