Default Trampoline leak

Anyone have any ideas on how to find a slow leak. I took out of water and brought home so I could soap it up and look for bubbles. Nothing. Went over every inch listening for air being released. Nothing. I am quite sure there is a leak somewhere as it softens considerably within a day or so of filling to max.

Maybe it just has lower pressure when the temperature dips over night or when cloudy. I try to fill mine up early in the morning, the opposite of Tom Brady.

I tried pouring soapy water over filled trampoline but got nothing. Saw online to spray simple green straight from the bottle. Tried and found 4 small leaks that were easy to ID as they created big bubbles. All patched and ready to go.

Iím glad you found a solution!

I was trying to think of a colored gas you could pump in that would show the leaks and the only 2 that came to mind were chlorine & fluorine. Donít think either of those ☠️ ☠️would be something for this particular application!

Does anyone know a professional who repairs leaks in Aquaglide lake trampoline in lakes region area? I tried soapy water and simple green but that didn't work for me.

The hard part is finding the leak but the method I tried above with the simple green worked very well. Once you find the leak patching it is easy. I have used 2 types of patches over the years. There is a ready made peel and stick that works ok if you get it perfectly flat but the kind where you mix the glue with a hardening agent and brush it on seems to hold better.
