    I've got a tls350 where the suit no longer goes 4 dives between leaks, and the fabric is just done. Anything worth salvaging? Do I just throw it away? Should I cut off the old turbo socks? Pockets? Pee valve?

    I'm guessing there's no market for a suit that shoddy, but if you think otherwise, let me know.

    If you’ve got zip seals, save those. Some people save those to glue to dry gloves to make their own with zip seals.

    I would save the zip seals if it has them and the pee-valve and maybe the suspenders, the rest just trash

    Intake and exhaust valves.

    valves might be worth salvaging. If you had a new zipper or neoprene socks/boots installed recently and they dont leak, that can be worth salvaging too.

    Pull the valves, all 3 of them. If the zipper is alright, pull that too. If you've got zip seals they're worth saving. Everything else is probably trash. I wouldn't even bother with suspenders or socks/turbo soles.

    DUI had a trade in program recently. If you had an old drysuit you got $500 off. Might be able to sell to someone who then trades it in
