Cover the leaky area in Plumbers Goop. Make sure you wait at least 24 hours for it to dry. And I'd suggest putting on another coat over that one, just to make sure it won't leak again.

I had a similar problem and I went to fix it today and it turned out the little nub the connects teh pumps hose to the bladder had broken off. I tried to glue it back on but it didn't work. Im trying to think why this helps you I guess you should open it up and find the leak or take some pics and we can help.

Well, I had the same problem so I just hotglued everything (just kiddin :mellow: ).


Try putting it in the tub filled with water and then pump the gun. See where the bubbles are forming and theres your leak.

If you haven't modified it in anyway why not simply take it back, and exchange it for a new one?

On a side note Jtcm im having the same problem with mine. I plan on drilling the hole slightly larger and replacing the tubing.

How about holding the gun underwater to see where it's leaking?
