A K3 underwater interesting proposition...
How will you accurately frame the shots without a video assist on the K3 and a small monitor inside the housing?
With only 100 feet of film in the camera that won't get you very many shots. It might work for snorkling but for diving with air it would be a problem. You can't just pop up and down to change the film in the K3, you will get decompression sickness.
Underwater housing are tricky to design, the unit must be just slighty negatively bouyant with the camera inside. This means adding a carefully balanced set of weights to overcome the air pocket inside the housing where the camera resides.
The lens needs to go inside a "bubble" to compensate for how water distorts the image. You would also most likely need a ultra wide angle lens on the K3.
It would be possible to build one your self with a bit of trial and error.

Or if you have to take it out of the case to wind it that would be a bit of a hassle
