I also use olympus cameras and housing. The silica gel pack is limited. A cheap alternative is to buy your own silica gel. Get a pack of filter bags for tea. Use a sealer and custom build your own silica packs. The tea bag filters are real cheap, $2 for 70+ bags. They are made of a synthetic plastic material that seals with ordinary heat sealers.

Use a sock, stuff it with silica gel and tie a knot at the end. I have been using it for 2 years now with no problem.
