I have a waterskeeter personal pontoon type float tube. I have only used the tube three times in the fresh water. Wanted to bay fish with it this week but thankfully I took out the tube last week to pump it up and check out everything only to find that the upper u-shape bladder that holds the two side pontoons together had a leak at the inside weld seam. I check out reviews on internet and find that it is a very common problem with the bladders (specially the u-shaped top section) leaking at the weld seam. my question is, is there a place or company that will re-weld the seam? I thought about using my vacuum sealer but the shape of the area where the leak is won't fit into sealer and can't close the lid. I really don't think the vacuum sealer would get hot enough to weld the bladder but I would've tried had it fit. Hate to have to buy/trade for another tube but that is what it is looking to be my alternative.

Thanks Scott

A generous layer or two of Aquaseal or E6000 will probably do the trick. Let it cure 12 hours.

Thank you gentlemen. I wasn't sure any adhesive's would work at the seams. I use to use the e-6000 to glue magnets on the surface of windows when I installed alarms for Brinks Home Security, it is some tough glue.

I had the exact same problem happen this morning only on a ODC420 bladder. Mine is also right on the seam. I was going to use Aquaseal, but am wondering what keeps it from popping right off after i inflate it ?? Does it have that much stretch to it that it will move with the bladder ??

Thanks

Jim

Aquaseal and E6000 are flexible. I would clean the area with rubbling alcohol and then apply three coats. Make sure the area is flat and level because both products are self-leveling. If it does not work you can always peel it off and try a patch.

Thanks Fisheromen !! I was going to only put one layer on there, but i'll follow your advice and put a couple with a couple of days drying time in between.
