How To: Find and Fix Inflatable Boat Valve Leaks (3:23)

Finding and fixing leaks in the valves on your inflatable raft, cataraft or inflatable kayak (IK) is an important skill for boaters. Here NRS repair guru Josh Gile demonstrates the steps with a Leafield C-7 inflate/deflate valve. You'll use basically the same steps with other types -- Leafield B-7, Halkey-Roberts, Summit and military valves.

  • New Short Halkey-Roberts Valve

    Q:

    I have an old RIB with HR 690BV valves. I understand that I can't use the new valve with the old housing
    But can the housings be removed and replaced without cutting. Ed

      Hi Ed,
      Sorry for the late reply we've been on the Grand and just got home!
      We have a Jack's Plastics boat. This is how WE do it - not sure it will work for your boat. We actually gather the raft material around the base of the valve, wrap some sort of padding around it, hold it with channel locks, and use another tool (whatever you can find - channel locks will work here too if you don't care if you destroy the housing) to unscrew it. You'd have to do the reverse to install the new.
      Good luck!

      Yes, you can replace the valve inner. Be patient and use hot water to loosen up the rubber.

      A:

      I think that would depend on the flexibility and toughness of the fabric.
      If you could force the bottom piece of the valve through the existing hole
      with out damage it would work fine. The bottom piece is twice the diameter
      of the hole needed in the fabric.

      Unfortunately, you have to cut somewhere to get that inner piece out; it's larger than the hole in the tube. Watch this video for a good method for making the repair - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=AkshJaBhNR4

      Sorry, I know the valve is used for rafts, unsure if used for stand up paddle board.  I recommend checking with the manufacturer of the SUP or the owners manual.  Also, your valve should have a part number etched on it.  You can do an internet search on the part number.  I hope thid information is helpful.

    Q:

    Is this the valve used in the 2013 West Marine Roll-Up dinghy? If yes. can you tell me why the valves will not close when I remove the pump?
    Asked on 7/20/2013 by Steve from Panama City, Florida

      A:

      To my knowledge, this valve is used in the 2013 West Marine dinghy. I
      happen to see this dinghy while shopping for another product at West Marine.
      The valve is designed to stay sealed when air is pumped in, it will not come
      out on upward/downward strokes of the pump. Using a hand pump to inflate
      your dinghy, the valve should be in the closed position (by slightly
      depressing and 1/4 turn clockwise or counter clockwise the center [yellow
      stem]). The stem will be in the up position (not remained depressed).
      If air is being lost during inflation, the valve may have small particles of
      dirt or sand in the flap. Clean the valve stem area with a spray bottle of
      soapy water. The soapy water will also bubble if air is being lost. You
      can also spray soapy water around the value outer rim or the dinghy to see
      if there are air leaks. Continue with inflation, if air still escaping from
      the valve, likely the valve unit is faulty and should be replaced. Hope
      this helps.

      This valve can be locked in the open position by depressing the center and

      A:

      I don't know if this is the valve in the boat you have, but these valves
      have a feature that they can be forced open by pushing in on the stem and
      rotating it. It can be returned to normal by pushing and rotating it back.
      This makes it easier to inflate the boat because you are not pumping
      against the pressure of the spring that normally holds it closed. So, if
      the valve won't close, push in on the stem and rotate it back and the valve
      should close. If this is not the problem, then maybe the valve is
      defective.

      I dont know that will filt the 2013 West Marine Roll-Up dinghy. I bought
      these to replace the old style long halkey Roberts in a older cataraft
      pontoon. Your problem with the valve not closing is that it has something
      stuck in the valve seat or you need to turn the core counter clockwise in
      order to let it close. It will accept air from your pump without being
      pushed in and turned open. this is just for deflating. Hope this helps.

      Steve, look at the Halkey-Roberts ID page - http://www.nrsweb.com/repair/hrvalves.asp - Make sure the valve is closed when you start to pump. Usually this type of valve closes by pushing down on the stem and turning it clockwise. It's spring loaded and you can lock it closed or open.

      A:

      These are great valves. You'll need to get some polyurethane so you can cut a doughnut about 2" bigger in diameter than HR valve. So steps are:
      1 Push HR valve base thru hole in raft. hole should be marginally larger than Shaft diameter
      2 cut and glue 1-2 "doughnuts" to inside of hole and let cement set. I use some wax paper inside to be sure I don't inadvertently glue walls of inflatable to each other.
      3 remove wax paper, push valve shaft out of hole. Apply Plumbers Goop to underside of HR flange and tighten down with supplied (?) wrench.

      A:

      Hmm, if you've eliminated the valve as a source of the leak, it must be in the tube material. I assume you've been using a soapy water solution to check for leaks. Sometimes this isn't sufficient to find a veeeery slow leak. Go to your pharmacy and buy some glycerin. Add it to your soap solution or just make a strong solution of it in water. It will give you a much stronger, higher surface-tension bubble. Inflate the tube to as high a pressure as is safe and go over the entire surface, including the valve, with the solution. Please give us a call, 800.635.5202, if we can help further. Good Luck!

      A:

      Yes, you can. Simply unthread the top half (with the valve) and thread the
      new piece in. You will need to hold the bottom half in place unless its
      glued in. I find it easier to do if the boat is deflated. There is a tool
      that inserts into the top half to make it easier to unthread. NRS sells it.
      It's not required if you can unthread the top half by hand.

      A:

      Yes..as long as the threads are the same. Just carefully unscrew the outter piece and screw in the new valve. There is a special tool for tightening it used in the factory but you can hand tighten and then carefully use a pair of adjustable pliers to grib the edge and tighten.
      There is no gasket, the under side of the outter edge is made to seal the fabric between inner and outter valve parts.
      If the threads don't match then write back and I can tell you a little trick that will allow you to take out the inner piece and install the new one.

      Easy and cheap repair! That's a Halkey valve--you'll have to unscrew the top part of the existing valve with the halkey tool (spanner), followed by getting the backing piece out. This has to be turned sideways to deliver the wide part of the flange at the same time folding the inflatable fabric to make the hole wider. lnsert the new backing piece in the reverse order, then tighten the outer piece with the spanner wrench. You have to prevent the backing piece from turning by "pinching" from outside of the inflatable tube. Takes just a few minutes. Good luck! PJ

      I hope this answer will be useful to the person with the Seaworthy
      inflatable.
      My wife has a 20-year old Water Wolf inflatable. It is basically two
      inflatable pontoons cleverly lashed together. Each has an inflator valve. It
      appeared to be leaking around the valve seats. I bought two short
      Halkey-Roberts valves from NWR to replace the old valves in the Water Wolf.
      In the Water Wolf, the valves are installed in the bladder that is inside of
      the thick, tough outer fabric of the pontoon. This requires removing the old
      two-part valve, carefully installing the inside-the-bladder part of the new
      valve, lining up the valve opening in the bladder with that in the outer
      shell and then tightening the two parts of the valve to seal valve and
      bladder.
      The Water Wolf has a zipped and pretty well hidden pocket that when opened
      gives access to the bladder at the location of the valve. This greatly
      facilitated the valve replacement. I am guessing that the Seaworthy will
      have a similar arrangement.
      I recommend buying the valves and trying to make the repair. Also, buy the
      valve wrench to use while loosening the old valves and tightening the new.
      It is not absolutely necessary but it certainly makes those operations a lot
      easier to accomplish.
      NWR was great. They promptly filled my order and delivered the valves and
      wrench ahead of promised date. All-in-all, the new valves saved our summer
      on the river in Montana. We are on our second 20 years with the Water Wolf!
      Good luck with the repair.

              Comments about New Short Halkey-Roberts Valve:

              The Halkey-Roberts air valves are sturdy and well made. I used them to replace similar valves that had been in use for 15 years.

              My wife's 15 year old WaterWolf inflatable kayak would not hold air. It appeared that the air valves were leaking around the valve seats.

              The kind people at WaterWolf suggested that I get replacement valves from NRS. The WaterWolf people patiently explained how to make the replacements. On their advice, i also purchased the Halkey-Roberts valve wrench.

              Replacement of the valves in the WaterWolf is not a completely obvious job. Without the advice from the WaterWolf people it would have been difficult and possibly unsuccessful. However, once the new valves were in position, completion of the installation was simple.

              I strongly recommend the Halkey-Roberts valve wrench. The wrench greatly simplifies removal and replacement of the valves.

              The good news is that the replacement of the valves was completely successful and the WaterWolf is now as good as new.

              NRS was helpful with the order process and delivered the valves ahead of promised schedule. This has been a good experience all-around.
