The check valve.
Return it and get another one.

It leaks.

Take it back.

End Of Thread.

The box got thrown away. BUT i found the problem. The tank is fine, no leaks... but the thing the back that lets the tank hold air is bent... And i think my pump is too small

The pump isn't too small, unless you mean the pump head isn't sealing properly.

The bent thing would be the check valve, and I don't know how to fix that short of replacing the whole pump tube and everything so just buy a new Big Blast, they're only $10. Save the trigger from this one because they always break and it'll be nice to have a replacement.

I found the problem, the pump WAS too narrow, So e-tape saves the day again :blush:

I've bought and returned 3 of the new 4B's, and all of them have this problem. The pump seal is very loose.

It's supposed to be small. If it was perfect sealing, no air would get into the pump after each pump, and it will do nothing. Air needs to get in front of the pump head.
