I have been thinking about installing pressure relief valves in my Cumberland FT. I found somewhere on the internet a reference to Classic Accessories Float tubes which stated that the maximum air pressure was 2.5lb psi.
I know that most of you would probably, through experience adjust pressures in your tubes dependant on weather conditions, but I was contemplating a blow up and leave for the day, set up. Having the tube inflated to maximum would give maximum carrying capacity without stressing the seams, if a blow off valve was incorporate.
Classic Accessories do not manufacture a pressure relief valve that I know of, and a search of the internet located a few options that may be passable, dependant on the thread of the FT matching these valves.
A couple of the valves I have found so far are located here

One of the valves is a fairly pricey option but aside from that, I would like some input on this modification.

I am about to tell you something that will save you money and blow your mind all at the same time LOL. Just found out on Friday (thanks wiseguy) that the cumberland already has one built in. That's right! You already have one and didn't even know it! Wiseguy found out by accident.

To check this out all you have to do is inflate your tube all the way. Once inflated, sit in the tube and push sideways on the valve. Place your palm on the side of the valve stem/cap and push sideways. You will start to hear the air slowly coming out and when you let go of the valve, the air stops coming out. We tried this on three different Cumberlands, so we know it wasn't a fluke.

Let me know if you have any questions.

You can just go ahead and send me the money you were going to spend on those valves Thumbs Up lol!

Absolutely! The new cumberlands come with the pressure relief valves. And I've noticed that on some hot days of tubing my tube deflates itself a little to avoid popping in the hot sun. In the hot sun your bladders will expand but with the new boston valves that the cumberland comes with that is not a problem!...and yes, i found this out by mistake! Red Smile
