Servicing Zodiac I/C Valves

Hi All,

Longtime reader, first time poster. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience servicing the Interconnecting valves on Zodiac Grand Raids. I recently pumped my GR after the winter, and the next morning one of the chambers was flat. I know for a fact that the tubes aren't leaking, so it must be the valve. I can't hear a hissing sound, and am wondering if it could be any of the rubber seals? Could I service these valves myself, or are the a professional job? Does anyine have any diagrams?

Thanks in advance for anyhelp!

It's been a while since I worked on the GR boats. I'm thinking these are the valves that are easily replaceable and cheap (if they are damaged). Usually we'd just remove, clean with Innox or WD and replace. I believe this is the Zodiac tool for removing the valve assy.

Hi
We are a large Zodiac centre @ Putney
I carry lots of the individual parts for these inter-communicating valves. I can make a .pdf of the parts drawing for you
Please send us the email address and I will send you back the diagram
I believe if you are fairly mechanically minded and can cope with the circlip and a bit of fiddling you will be able to do this yourself.

Let us know the email on boatbits@chastheboat.co.uk and will send the diagram back to you
