Proper air pressure meaning the tubes/floor is hard and has a bloated feel to it . Boat comes with foot pump in the package which cannot overinflate your inflatable boat . Generally you cannot pump anymore air into the boat, meaning the boat is ready to go. Air pressure gauge is not necessary to have but if you want to know exact air pressure or feel that you boat is underinflated or overinflated you can purchase air pressure gauge for inflatable boats . Pressure gauge must come with adapter designed for valves installed on your inflatable boat.
Please keep in mind , if you decide to use a high-pressure electric air pump,you have to strictly follow the guidelines to avoid boat over inflation and consequential damage.
If you are using a high-pressure compressor, inflator or electric air pump, please use below guidelines to avoid boat over-inflation and damage.Electric pump designed for inflatable boats usually has a built in cut off-switch that automatically turns pump off when the desired air pressure is reached.
Max /recomended pressure for inflatable boats:
|| MAXIMUM PRESSURE FOR INFLATABLE BOAT
||RECOMENDED PRESSURE FOR INFLATABLE BOAT
|TUBES / CHAMBERS
||3.6 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 25 KPa
||3 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 20 KPa
||5 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 35 KPa
||4.3 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 30 KPa
|HIGH PRESSURE INFLATBLE FLOOR
||10 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 70 KPa
||8.7 PSI (Pounds per square Inch ) or 60 KPa
