Defo tube manufacture not the supplier of the product !!! When you buy a new car it always goes back to the supplier. You don't try and claim from the 10 pence an hour chap that made it in some back street sweatshop in Taiwan !!!

I have seen this a few times , once on an avon that was about a year old and also on a set of tubes we made for a German customer last year using orca fabric where some bubbles appeared after about 6 months use in the case of the avon (their own fabric ) we were told to sand off the bubbles and patch over them ,orca gave me the same response In both cases the bubbles only appeared in a small aerea that was under water .

In reality this is a pointless thread the purchaser of the tubes should be talking to the supplier of the tubes and hope to come to a satisfactory agreement how to overcome the problem

I'm just pointing out, the tube maker is at the mercy of the material supplier.

It may be a small industry, but the amount of synthetic textile producers in the world is even smaller. The only 3 that come to mind are ARZ, Pennel & Flipo, and Achilles.
