1、Determine where the hole is in the water slide. If it's a small tear, it may be hard to
find. One way to easily find the hole is to spray the deflated area with soapy water. Then
reinflate the slide and look for bubbles. That's where the hole is.
2、Make sure the area around the hole is dry before repairing it. Mark the hole by placing
four strips of masking tape around it, making a small square.
3、Sew up the hole using a needle and strong thread. The majority of inflatable slides come
with a repair kit that may include thread, a patch and glue. You can purchase a repair kit
at most stores that sell inflatables.
4、Patch the area. The glue should be HH-66 glue or something similar (see References). The
patch should be a least a half inch bigger than the tear. Spread a small amount of glue
around the surface and attach the patch to the newly sewn hole.
5、Allow time for the patch to dry. Do not leave the inflatable outside at night; a small
amount of rain or dew could disrupt the drying of the glue. If the patch fails when you try
inflating the water slide again, send the slide to a professional to be repaired.
