Trapped water means that water gets stuck in the ear canal. Trapped water is a common issue, especially when you spend a lot of time in water. Trapped water typically causes a plugged-up sensation and sounds often appear muffled. Many people suffer from ear pain, tinnitus as well as loss of coordination and balance. If left untreated, there is a risk of developing Swimmer’s Ear, Surfer’s Ear or other types of infections that may result in hearing loss.
Trapped water is not a life-threatening condition but it can lead to outer ear infections, severe pain, a doctor’s visit and having to take antibiotics. If trapped water is not removed from your ear, you are at a greater risk of permanent hearing issues and ear damage. In the worst scenario, you may end up with an infection known as Swimmer’s Ear which can lead to deep tissue infections (cellulitis), bone and cartilage damage or necrotizing otitis externa. You should, therefore, take actions to avoid trapped water.
If you have water in your ears, you can try any of the following at-home remedies:
- Jiggle your earlobe
- Make gravity do the work
- Create a vacuum
- Use a blow dryer
- Try alcohol and vinegar ear drops
- Use hydrogen peroxide ear drops
- Try more water
- Take over-the-counter medication
However, if you use Ear Pro, you can prevent trapped water altogether.
Ear Pro is an effective solution against trapped water and related ear issues. Ear Pro coats the outer ear canal with a highly water-repellent layer and a natural anti-infective.
John Hicks gave Ear Pro five stars: “Second time I have taken this with me on a liveaboard. 36 dives over 9 days, and none of the usual discomfort / problems with my ears. Does what it says on the box, great product!”

Ear Pro is used before going into water and comes with natural anti-infective properties that coat the outer ear canal with a highly water-repellent layer.
Most products on the market are used after being in the water. They are based on alcohol, acetic acid, glycerin and other drying agents – extremely harsh substances for the delicate skin of the ear canal that can destroy natural bacteria and the flora needed for healthy ears.
Once opened, you should use your Ear Pro bottle within 6 months.
