- Basketball or soccer ball
- 1 tube of Aqua seal
- 1 or 2 brushes
- Sandpaper number 400
- New gasket
- Latex gloves
- Sharp blade or cutter
- 2 alcohol pads
This process will take you 40 minutes to 1 hr. plus 8 hrs. of drying time
Place the basketball (no air in it) in the neck of your drysuit
Pump the basketball until gets hard and gives a good shape to the gasket.
Will look like this:
Use the cutter and start cutting IMPORTANT you need to leave an inch from the old gasket, here is where you are going to connect the new gasket to.
Sandpaper the old gasket and the outside of your new gasket
When you finish turn your gasket inside out
Clean the leftover gasket and the new gasket with the alcohol pads
Apply aqua seal in the leftover gasket using the brush, make sure that you use the latex gloves
Place the new gasket on top of the basketball and start placing it in line with the leftover gasket. IMPORTANT: Remember that you are doing this process inside out, make sure that your gasket is inside out before you place it.
Use tape to hold the new gasket in place
Wait for 8 hours letting the aqua seal dry, remove the tape and the basketball.
After 8 hours
Ready to take it rolling
