    Help! Slow puncture in inflatable chair :(

    Yeah, so I bought this inflatable chair a few weeks back, for indoor use (argos £7.99) and the bottom half (the bit you sit on) goes down everyday a fair amount. Is there an easy solution to stop this? Putting it in water probably won't find it as its going to be to small, and urrrm yeah im stuck for ideas. Your comments are greatly appreciated!

    Water would probably be your best bet to find the hole and patch it or could you take it back to argos and say you just blew it up for the first time and it has a hole?

    Who is Yoruself and why does he need saving? :thumbsup:

    Yeah part inflate it and then use a bath tub full of water to identfy the leak. An air leak however small will show in water!!

    I shall try that, thankyou

    Take it back and exchange it as pinkkitty2007 suggests.

    If it happens again the best way to find a leak in a large inflatable item it to paint the surface with the paste froth mixed from a bar of soap. As the air escapes the leak point will blow bubbles in the soap.

    if that chair deflates while someone is sitting on it....god help us all

    washing up liquid in water will blow bubbles, i have seen gas fitters use this, use a paint brush to wet the seams then use a cycle puncture repair kit

    Did you keep the repair patch that came with it?

    We don't need anymore inflation.
