Hey all, I've been off the water for a bit. Besides being away and not having the time when I was home, part of my hurdle to hooking up was the valves on my FishCat leaking. My FishCat is 5+ years old and I have used it way more than the recommended 25ish days per year like they recommend. First year I bought it, I fished it over 200 days, so it's been used quite a bit.

I did some research, ordered a few wrong sizes, and eventually found these replacement valves:

They're a perfect match, and the extra material around it covers all the areas I had problems with on the old valves. Took me just a few minutes to cut them out, clean the bladder up, and stick these on. They costed less than buying all new bladders.

Big thanks to @SP_Dan for helping me with his leak detection method a few months back. Hope this helps someone else out in the future!

The link was awesome for how to replace the entire set up. I had no idea you could replace the whole valve down to the tube.

Thanks for sharing

Welp, one worked and one didn’t. The one that didn’t, the area around where I cut was not flat due to earlier repairs and fold lines that became permanent. Also, I think these valves used Type A Tearaid, and I needed Type B to match my bladders. So I just ponied up to buy new bladders :-/

I’m sorry to hear that your repair went South.
Indeed ... it’s time to pony up or should I say ... $ Giddyup! lol

Thank you for your follow-up review on your DIY efforts of repairing your bladder’s Boston valves.

Well that's a bummer.

But, a lesson learned is always good.
