You probably need a special end that opens the valve whilst pumping, air bed pump no good look on the force 4 site for an inflatable pump and poly marine for an adapter.

Hi Swanseasib and welcome,

It may be an idea to start a new thread - "Avon Typhoon S4 00 advice needed"

By the sounds of it you will need a bit of ongoing advice about your sib.
