charge it and put it in water to find out where the leaks are on the spot... then you maye put some epoxy there.

I used epoxy but it didn't help so or my old epoxy didn't work well or I did it wrong or it just doesn't work.

and for the bicycle valve I used plaster(very strong) so I don't think epoxy is the best method.

Yeah but it doesn't look like it on the other fittings.


If you haven't used teflon tape, take apart everything and re-thread it with a few layers of teflon tape. Tighten well.

And make sure that PVC is pressure rated, it doesn't look like it.

I used teflon everywere but the problem is that the air comes out at the place were the pvc and the adapter from metal join(yes also there I used teflon) and by the bycicle valve I think I need to use something else than plaster, but what?

Ha plaster, that's a first :) Try JB-Weld, or JB-Kwik.

JB-Kwik will be ready in 24 hours, but JB-Weld will take several days before you can use it. If you're not going over 250psi, JB-Kwik will be fine.

Wait... you used plaster to glue a valve??

Edit: you know, you can blow air right through plaster. It won't seal anything.

ok I will look for JB kwik or weld
this is different plaster than normal. it's realy very strong and has a big expansion. but it seems it doesn't matter so I will try to use JB kwik or JB-
weld and for the other leak more teflon and some new epoxy.

do you think that pvc will hold 250psi ? :shock:

Short answer, no. Not unless it's specifically rated for over that.
