Inflation problem

Hi there!

I’m after some advice for my inflatable kayak please! :slight_smile:

I’ve had it about 3 years now and the last couple of times I’ve used it, its not inflating to full capacity, it gets so far then just kinda stops… I can’t find any punctures it just doesn’t seem to get past a certain point, there’s a crease on one side that now stays creased… I’ve tried new valves but still no luck :frowning:

Many thanks!

Are you sure it’s not a pump problem? If it’s getting weak it may only pump to a certain pressure.

The pump seals aren’t able to hold the pressure. Could be that you could take the pump apart and fix the gaskets, might be a new pump. Sometimes on pumps the gaskets dry out. Depending on the material you can sometimes oil them or replace them.
