I tried a Super Soaker XP 110 Nerf conversion, but when I pump it up it leaks profusely. Can anyone help me out?

Try putting it under water and pumping it, and look for the bubbles. Then seal the leak with plumbers goop.

Thanks. I found the leak, but would hot glue work just as good as plumbers goop?

I would say no. I've used hot glue, it sucks the nads.

I have not however used plumbers goop. But I would think it is much much better than hot glue.

hot glue 1s t3h $uxx0r$.

goop will hold, put it on the inside of the leak if possible. and make sure you let it cure for 48 hours.

Just incase that doesn't fix the leak one thing I've often found that happens to super-soakers is that the valve between the pump and the airtank is broken and the air is leaking through that valve and back out were the pump is so fast you cant even get a shot off. Don't know if that helps just though I'd post it.

what do you do if this happens

because i think this is happening to mine i got it to shoot right throw 3 pices of cardbord and thin it did not work after that and it sounds like it near the pump not the tank

It depends where the super soaker is leaking from, it its from the water nozzle, ur gun's a goner. Buy a new one!

If it's somewhere in the air piping, use a glue gun to seal the leaks hope this helps!

No, a leaky nozzle can be fixed most of the time. A simple rubber band can close up the valve if it doesn't shut completely. If it's the actual internal rubber padding that is broken, some valves can be opened and you are likely to fix it that way. Many more times than not that's a simple repair.
