I got so fed up I just broke down and purchased another bladder.
When you glob aquaseal on the bladder it curls up a little and its just messy as f*ck.
I'm going to have to say that the Type A Tear Aid used in the ustick valves is better than aquaseal.
Cant get Tear Aid in double side anywhere....they dont make it available to the public as far as I know.
If you can avoid folds and bubbles its way better than aquaseal...in my opinion...

Haven't re-glued many valves since I started using the valve traps, much faster & easier, durability is still TBC, but so far so good ...

Happened to me more times than I care to mention. If the tear is long enough then the diameter of the new hole can be huge. Ergo, the valve trap covers a larger diameter hole on the bladder.

I must be missing something here- if you have a standard size valve, why wouldn't you replace the whole valve for five bucks more? Valves sometimes crack at the base.
