Inflatable water slides are fun for kids on a hot day. They can become worn out from many children climbing and sliding on them, and they may become torn at some point. If that happens, the damage is usually fairly easy to repair. You can get your inflatable water slide back in good condition so you can continue renting it for parties and events.
How to find and repair a hole in an inflatable water slide?
Determine where the hole is. If it’s just a small hole it could be hard to spot. In order to find it just spray the whole thing with soapy water and then inflate the slide as usual. Now take a closer look where you see bubbles forming, that’s your tear is.
Now, you must make sure that the area around the hole is dry before proceeding. Also, in order to spot the hole easier next time mark it with by placing 4 strips of masking tape all around it.
Sew the hole by using a needle and a thread. Use a strong thread and sew as close together as you can.
Prepare the patch before you start, make sure it’s at least half an inch bigger than the tear. Take the glue in your hand and spread small amounts of glue around the surface where you made the square. Now apply the patch over the glue and the newly sewn tear.
Now wait for the glue and patch to dry out, leave them at least 24 hours before trying to inflate the slide again, don’t be anxious.
You're done, test it out and see how good of a DIY guy/gal you are !
After you have sewn your inflatable water slide, you need to patch the hole. Cut a patch that is at least ½ inch bigger than the tear, spread small amounts of glue around the square, and place the patch onto the glue to cover the tear. Then let the glue dry on the patch for at least 24 hours. If there is a chance of rain or high humidity, do not leave the inflatable water slide in a place where it will be exposed because that can prevent the glue from drying. After the glue has dried, you can re-inflate the water slide.
