How to inflate a tube with a Stem Valve


Hi. I'm Brad Ketai with Kwik Tek.

We're going to talk about inflation and the different valves that we have on our tubes and pool and lake lounges.

We'll start with the stem valve, which is our simplest valve. You're going to find them on our river floats. You're going to find them on our pool and lake lounges. I'm going to show you how we approach this.

First of all, with our electric pump, we take the fitting that is appropriate for a stem valve, put it on, and you're going to insert it right into what we call the stem valve. The stem valve can be pinched when you want to release air from it. When it goes to filling it, you make sure that you stick the pointy end in rather deep so that it breaks open the gate for this valve. And then you hit the pump and start inflating.
