A few inflation questions
Having followed the hole repair guidance in my previous thread, the moment of truth whether I was successful. Inflation time.
I removed the airdeck and inflated the floor and both side tubes with the electric pump that has a digital gauge.
I went all over the tubes, seams, valves and patches with soapy water and didn't see any bubbles.
I left it and returned a couple of hours or so later, connected the pump and both side tubes had lost well over 10%.
Could the pressure difference just be air temperature? The temperature has dropped from 18 to 13.
What is an acceptable pressure loss?
One side tube inflates most of front so which tube should I inflate first?
The valves are the zodiac delrin/boston type are these likely to leak even though I did the soap and water test on these?
