|How can I repair a puncture?
1)-A simple vinyl repair kit does the job. Just apply the patch to the offending area and allow to dry. Most times the bed does not even need to be drained. You can purchase the repair kits on our waterbed accessories page. You receive two patch kits (glue and patches) to repair several holes. This will be a permanent fix, you will not have to do the repair again.
2)- There are limitations on the effectiveness of the patches. The Patch Kit cannot be used to repair any type of seam leak. You also cannot repair the valve seam near the label on your mattress. These seams are welded in specific high tension area on the mattress, because they involve a heat sealing a simple patch will not fix the leak.
3)-The patch kit is also to be used on pinholes and really small slits only. Anything larger than 1/2 inch probably cannot be repaired. Large cuts in the mattress cannot be fixed at all.
