Deflate

Post by diemonde » Tue Aug 11, 2009 12:49 pm

When I deflate (AF) with two-way hand pump I push te valve and set it to deflate (clockwise), but when I take the pump of it it seems to refill with air. I really have to be quick to push it but then still there's getting air back in.. How come?

I leave mine on deflate and when I fold them up, the rest of the air gets pushed out.

Hi Jack,

Well first time, hahaha. Handled it like porcelain :-)

b.t.w. do you keep the floor in or out. It was in when I unpacked it, but probally folds somewhat easier without.

i keep mine out. its easier to fold and pack back in bag and allows me to put the backbone in it easier the next time. (i always use my backbone)
