It is important to note that the firmness of your bed may decrease after you initially inflate it. This is normal and not an indication of leaking. The material is simply stretching after inflation. Add air to your desired firmness. If you believe your bed is still potentially leaking, follow the steps below:
Leak Identification Process:
To identify a leak, fully inflate the bed and listen for any hissing or other sounds that may indicate a leak location. Place your hand parallel to the surface of the airbed approximately 2 inches away and slowly trace the surface of the airbed. Most leaks are found on the top surface, so check the top of the surface first. If the leak is not found, check the side and bottom. If a leak is found, follow the steps below.
Leak repair with liquid sealant for flocked or laminated PVC:
Please note holes larger than 1/2 inches or cuts larger than 1 inch are unlikely to be repaired successfully. Clean the bed with a dry paper towel and then lay the bed flat on the ground. This will help the glue to say in place while it dries. Apply about a dime size of liquid sealant (Seal all) to the bed using a small circular pattern. Wait 4 hours for the glue to cure.
Leak repair with an adhesive patch for smooth PVC:
Please note holes larger than 1/2 inches or cuts larger than 1 inch are unlikely to be repaired successfully. Clean off the bed with a dry paper towel and lay the bed flat on the ground. Cut the repair patch in a circle. Apply to the bed making sure there are no wrinkles. Use your thumb to apply pressure ensuring the patch is completely adhered to the PVC.
