Problem with airdeck

On my sunsport 320airb 1 year old

The port side airdeck loses pressure over a week
I havenít located the leak yet but have found a bit of a bubble in one of the seams that I wanted to see if itís a problem or not ,

Can anybody post a picture please if I email it to them, thanks.

Here's the image.

To be honest there are many imperfections like this in the construction of sibs or air floors so the only way to tell is to mix up a bowl of strong washing up liquid solution and wet the whole floor both sides to see where bubbles are formed. If it takes a week to lose pressure the bubbles may be very fine and take a good few seconds to form.

BTW no problem to do that image for you but have you tried to upload and it not worked? Because whatever I did with your image file which looked to be a jpeg it said invalid file type at the upload stage.

The only way I could get it on here was to photograph the screen with my camera and upload that. Weird!
