My Ozone has a leak in the boston valve.
I took the le out and seems to be unglued and air comed out by a corner

I do not know how this type of valve works.
Is it possible to remove and reglue with aquaseal???
Does this valve have a base of poly or its just the valve?

Regards

Are you certain? Even a fine gran of sand on the rubber seal can make it leak?

Yes, i am certain it is the glue failing around it

Hi,

you can put a layer of PU glue around the valve base (cover both directions at least for 3mm), if not working pls find the replacement valve on extra large valve base here:
