I have an Intex 4 person bubble spa. I have had it almost 3

Customer Question

I have an Intex 4 person bubble spa. I have had it almost 3 years. The blow up spa itself is losing air. I have patched the two spots I found. I have sprayed the soapy water everywhere, top bottom sides inside and even held the spa up and sprayed the bottom. I am pretty sure there is no leak there. I re-aired it Saturday afternoon and at noon yesterday it was still firm, but upon sitting and bouncing to check it about 4 hours later it was low again. Sooo that draws me to the conclusion the air valve that I use to inflate the pool has a leak. I have sprayed around it but do not see bubbles. I lost the little cap with the spring squeeze sides and am thinking and hoping that might be the issue. I have searched parts but of course cannot find that tiny cover. Can you send me one? Could this be my solution? HELP
