inflating dropstich floor

Post by bennobean » Thu Jan 27, 2011 4:52 pm

What is the best way to inflate the dropstich floor?
The double action pump I use to inflate the kayak dos'nt fit the floor valve.

Thanks

Contact the dealer you bought it from to see if they have the adaptor that attaches to the pump and also to the valve. If not, contact info@advancedelements.com

My ds floor came with an adapter that fits the valve. However, when the gauge on the pump (the yellow ae one) reaches almost 4 psi the adapter and valve start whistling and eventually want to pop off. is the seal not good or is 4 psi all it can really take? the floor is definitely hard at this point but should it be 6 psi harder?

There is a possibility it isn't twisted on all the way.
Also, make sure that your valve is in the inflate (closed) position.
You can add a little chapstick to the rubber gasket on the adaptor and that may also help.

How exactly should the floor be fitting inside the kayak? Under the main tubes on either side and then almost under/kinda under or not under the tubes in the bow and stern areas?

I'm still getting the valve wanting to pop off when the psi reach just under 4 psi. It's as if it doesn't lock in place very well or the gauge on the pump is inaccurate and the 4 psi reading is much greater.
