Leaky Valve

The perimeter of the center valve is leaking. The valve it self is working, but air is escaping from the junction between the valve and the material. How can this be repaired?

Your valve probably just needs to be tightened. Here’s a description of how to remove the valve. Follow it, but tighten the valve by turning it clockwise.

Air valves are becoming hard to turn

My air valves are getting hard to turn, from the open position to the spring-loaded close position. It still works well when I get it going, however. What do I use to lubricate it?

I recommend using UV Tech on the O-ring on the valve cap. I also spray a little in the bore of the valve to lube the oronge button shaft. This stuff is water based and good for the rubber.
