I have been lurking on this forum for a while. It was really helping me greatly to browse through the forums and get the little bits of gems.
Our family have bought a second hand inflatable boat. It is super tough and the guy have really taken care of the motor (sparkling inside). The inflatable is in good condition and is quite heavy so I am guessing the quality is not too bad.
We haven't had the chance to try it yet as it has been raining lately in Sydney.
I just tried to inflate the boat this morning and every time I take the pump adaptor out of the valve the air just escape.
When I try to lock the valve pushpin then the pump doesn't blow any air in I have tried to leave it in for a few minutes and no air in.
As soon as I release the valve and put the adapter back only then will it pump (then of course when I remove the adapter a lot of air gushes out before I can get my hand to lock the valve pushpin)
I had a look on google and saw that there was one type of adapter that had a pin in it to push the pushpin in the valve. is it the one I need (or maybe I can just drill the hole in) to get or did I get it totally wrong?
I have one that looks like this:
The one is saw online looked like this:
I am using an electric inflator (not the expensive ones)
Sorry for the beginner question, and thank you very much for your help !
I bought a whole lot of accessories and I will show off the boat next time
