zodiac adela chamber / tube will not inflate


After being deflated for 6 months the rear end / back chambers inflate easy so do sides(left side does anyway not checked right yet) but the front chambers will not inflate at all, not even a tiny bit and I do not know what the problem could be (?)

I would have thought if puncture that still would have inflated a bit but tube does not inflate at all and cannot hear any hissing / air escaping either.

Can anyone help with suggestion what problem could be?

Thanks in advance for any info,

Sounds like the rubber seal on the valve is stuck closed.

Put a little washing up liquid in the valve and try gently ease it open.... be careful not to damage it !
