Nik,

I assume from adding air and forming condensation or from god knows where.

Thanks To All

As usual this forum has saved another newbie. Deflated the tubes. vaccumed the water out, removed the valves and waiting till the rest evaporates. Thank you all for you pointers. Brillant!! Stormy

Most prob is condensation - I should imagine choosing a dry day with little humidity is the best time to pump them up again - NOT at the moment then - muggy as hell.....

I have discovered a small sloshing sound of water in my tubes. Is this common or should I be concerned?

It is condensation. Nothing to worry about. Naturally it would be better if not there. It won't rot the tubes if that is what you are concerned.
Unfortunately ,there is no easy way to drain tubes. - especially if you have a lot of chambers...

If you have an electric pump (or some other low temperature air pressure source) , setting it up with a small fill pipe into the tube interior (not inflating, just blowing air in) will help dry things out quickly.
