Re: The dreaded leak around the valve ??

I put a weight around the valve for about 12 hrs after I have glued it with wax paper under the weight to prevent adhesion. All my valves that hav...

Re: the dreaded leaky valve, how to fix??

Just peel off the valve and then make sure it is clean and roughed up a bit. Aquaseal on the valve and bl...

Re: Bladder valves coming off from heat

I used gluefix (which i read is Aquaseal) to stick a valve back on and it failed miserably? Is it not ment for this? Do you need to keep pressue on it for the whole time its curing?
