Water in pontoons

kenny131lt Member Posts: 2
I have a 2001 Aqua Patio 210. Pontoons have 3 vent plugs on each side.  Are ther 3 compartments or just one ?  I have water ion the pontoons you can hear when standing beside the boat on the trailer when you stop.  I drained as much as posible by siphoning.  How do I find the leak?

    I had a similar problem with my 2086 Sweetwater. The factory told me the pontoons had separate chambers so they could not completely fill if punctured. They had to pressure test each chamber to find the leak in mine. Turned out to be a bad weld along the bottom.

    Response from Matt in Godfrey Pontoons Customer Support: 

    The tubes are chambered.  Each vent plug is for each chamber in the tube.  Over time it is not uncommon for water to get into the tube from condensation.  If there is a LOT of water in the tubes then they will need to be inspected for leaks. Typically this should be done by a Godfrey dealer.  They will apply soapy water on the welds and put about 5lbs air pressure into the tubes.  If the one of the welds produces a bubble, they have found a leak.
