Default power inflator question

My power inflator button has begun to leak. Tiny stream of bubbles coming from (looks like) under the button. Can the button be disassembled? Is there a seal under the button? Is this BC shot?



Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Most power inflators can be rebuilt.

Most can be rebuilt, or worst case the power inflator can be replaced. Bring it by MBT and we'll get you fixed up, usually only takes a few minutes to rebuild.

Usually not too much, I am sure someone will let you know. Worst case would be to replace the hose, best case it is some sand and grit and maybe replace an O-ring. You never really know until it is apart.



What kind of BC is it? PM sent on a different subject.

Complete power inflator rebuild is $20. Not all of them need a full service, sometimes it doesn't cost anything, just depends on what the problem is. Worst case, a new power inflator is around $40.



Bring it by MBT and we'll be ahppy to take a look.
