Leaking Inflate Valve

Postby quixmac » Thu Nov 10, 2011 10:13 am

Hi. I have 2010 Nemesis NXG. Half of Inflate valve detached from the bladder this sunday.
There is a product called Aquaseal that I've seen person used on YouTube for attaching a valve.
Can you detach it and re-glue it back?
Any one used this product? Does it work?
Thanks for any suggestions.

I've never tried it so can't help. The best I can do is it might, it also might write off the tube.

Thank you for a great tutorial. How did you take the valve off the bladder?
Did you soak it in warm water or used hair dryer.
One more question. How does this fix perform? Any problems?
Thank you very much for any info.

By the way, I answered quixmac's question via private message. Here was my response:

I usually *slowly* and *carefully* peel the valve off the bladder without problems. My friend says you can use a hair dryer, but be careful to heat it up too much.

As far as the fix, I'm confident enough in my *own* work to call it permanent. I have fixed over 15 valves and none have leaked afterwards.

Oh, and after you apply the glue, be sure to use a card and scrape around the inside and outside edges of the valve base to remove excess glue.

I hope that helps, and if you have any other questions, let me know.

Thanks,
-Rick
