Can I over inflate air deck?

Hello all
Just a quick question, I have been told that I cant damage or over inflate the airdeck floor, using the standard foot pump (the type were you stand on it and lift the handle up and down ???Stirup????

Im having a problem with the floor lifting/bending causing cavitation, but I am interested what you guys think?

Unlikely that you'll be able to inflate it enough with a hand or foot pump yet alone over-inflate.

You need this pump to get the require .8 BAR for the floor and .8 is the max it will do anyway

So in short....UNLIKELY
