Seeking Advice: 1009 seam pinholes pop up all the time

Post by KOCE81 » Sat Jul 18, 2020 10:48 pm

Is it time for a new main bladder ? (i bought that problem one 2 years ago)

I put some stormsure glue and when i pump the bladder to check, a new pinhole on the seam opens up.
Glued pinholes are more than 8
If i put stormsure on the whole bladder is it gonna reinforce the seams ?

Seam failures are extremely difficult to repair and rarely successful. Also, seam failures/slits usually happen from improper/over inflation. What’s your inflation process? Do you have a pressure gauge? Either way, you'll need a new tube to truly solve the issue.
