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.

Valves saved a 15 year old WaterWolf

        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.

                      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!

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      Nick, you could use the New Short Valve. However, if it were me I'd put in a Leafield C7, Item # 1582. I think it's a better valve. Here's a video on valve replacement that should help - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/Video_Library.asp?vid=391&group=20&loadvid=1 - Call us, 800.635.5202, if you have further questions.

                      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.

                      Hope this helps
