LEAKS!

Post by ziffle » Wed Feb 01, 2017 12:22 pm

Guys what method for identifying leaks in your (Riverworks) breathable waders do you use? So far I've seen the fill them with water and the spray with isopropyl methods suggested but what's tried and trusted?

Turn them inside out when dry, and spray with Isopropyl. Easy peezy.

Glad you got that one sorted out Paul.

Big tip is to by the Isopropyl alcohol in a large quantity. Its a lot cheaper that way and it will get used in time. I bought a 1lt bottle at the hardware store for less than the chemist wanted for 100ml.

Yea has a few other uses around the house. I use it for cleaning the brake rotors on my wife's and my mountain bikes. 8-)

I tried that with a pair of waders that were leaky and couldn't find any holes.
I sprayed and sprayed inside the (inside out waders), until they were saturated with Isopropyl and nothing appeared.
Is there a special technique..
WTF? I always spray the inside - the hole goes dark grey :-)
