So as you guys know my Cumberland's left bladder suffered a puncture or several from a spottie during my last trip to NPH. Since then, I have found a hole and patched it with aquaseal. I've inflated it, left it alone for about 24 hours, and I believe there is still a very small leak somewhere.

Also, when I inflate my tube the bladder is inflated until quite firm. I don't know if the area around the valve or the valve itself has loosened.

Oh and I used soapy water to find the hole.

Any tips on effectively finding a leak? Thanks!

Maybe expansion and contraction?

find a pool and put your bladder in it and it will start to bubble from the leak

Possibly. That's what I'm hoping it is.
