Expensive breathable waders are a must have for every fisherman; they are comfortable, effective but costly to replace when damaged. A pinprick hole from a thorny bush or kneeling on stony ground can cause leaks. The problem is that tiny pinholes only leak when they’re a metre under water. You know you’ve got a leak because you’ve got wet feet!
There is then the struggle of finding the leak once you’ve returned home. The conditions are not the same and even though you know roughly where the leaking area is, it is almost impossible to find it. This is because the technical breathable fabric is designed to repel water (hydrophobic) and until the water pressure is sufficient the water will not go through the pinhole and in the bathroom or kitchen it is almost impossible to simulate a metre of water pressure.
Stormsure has the answer.
Using their LEAK DETECTOR has never been simpler and can help fix the leak quickly and efficiently.
Here at Stormsure we suggest a simple solution. Upon returning home dry the boots out thoroughly and turn them inside out, spray the LEAK DETECTOR on to the inside of the boot over the area where you believe the leak has sprung, immediately turn the waders the right way out and hey presto the leak will become visible in the form of a wet patch where the LEAK DETECTOR has passed through the pinhole.
LEAK DETECTOR will quickly evaporate, so mark the pinhole and apply the STORMSURE FLEXIBLE ADHESIVE inside so that it is not visible. It will seal the area creating a flexible, waterproof, abrasion resistant repair. Leave the adhesive to cure overnight.
