It's about my nipples....

So what's the proper glue to reattach a loose bladder nipple?
My storage choice seems less than perfect...hot, hot hot!
Thanks

Aquaseal, have repaired several valves with it.

Aquaseal works great, I have used it a lot, BUT wipe with alcohol first. I had some fail a while ago and did some tests. Wiping with alcohol makes a huge difference and makes a very strong bond. A light sanding improves it a bit (with or without alcohol. But alcohol made the biggest difference by far. If you glue with no surface prep you have a good chance of failure.
