Leak in Rubber Boots

Recommended Posts

I bought a pair of nicer rubber boots and noticed at the end of the ice season that I would get a wet foot......I have done my best to determine where the leak is coming in from but can't find anything......Can anyone suggest a tip on finding the leaking area and how I could patch it??? I know it is leaking from the bottom of the boot some where but can't pin point the leak....Thanks

never thought of that....I might have to try that....thanks...anyone else have ideas of how to find the leak and repair it...I would assume once I find the leak if it is small I could propably use super glue or something along those lines...

Use a sink full of water with dish soap. Fold the top of the boot over and slowly roll the top down towards the sole while keeping the suspected area covered with soapy water. Just a film of soapy water is all you need and watch for bubbles, If you get a good seal and a little presure in the boot you can easily spot the leak and mark it.

Super glue is very brittle and does not make a good rubber patch. Most sporting goods and shoe retailers as well as Wallmart sell a product called Shoe Goop. Shoe Goop is good stuff and works well even in freezing temperatures. Clean the area to be patched and rough up the area around the hole to let the Goop get a good grip, use sand paper or a file. Put some Goop on and if possible into the hole. Let dry and you should be dry again.

Is it a leak, or just condensation? It's a common issue with waders too, especially when you have varying temps between the outside and the inside.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
