I have a question about inflating, and i am not sure if i am missing something simple here. with the spring valve, after you pumped it up to the right pressure, is there a way to remove the hose without losing air? currently, i take the hose off, and quickly try to rotate the center stem, but if i don't do it fast enough i lose too much air, and have to start over.
You are inflating it with the valve in the "deflate" position. Read your manual. You need to push the valve in and rotate until it is extended - the "inflate" position. Now when you pump, the air will stay inside. Then when you push the valve in, you can rotate it the other way to the deflate position. There should be a diagram in your manual that illustrates this.
