I have a two wheel dolly which the inflatable tires are more expensive to replace, than the entire dolly. I am presently doing construction in an elementary school. THUMB TACKS ARE EVERYWHERE! My tube found one which suspended my material move for the day. I purchased Slime Tube Sealant with some doubt. I was wrong. I slimed the inner tube, added air and spun the tire. When I removed the tack, a little green dot appeared without any air escaping. This product saved me a lot of time and money. I also slimed the other tube as prevention. AWSOME PRODUCT!!!!!!!
This product is a must for use on vehicles which are in areas where there are thorns etc. It saves a lot of headaches caused by flat tires.
I bought the gallon size since it was such a better value than buying a couple of the smaller sizes. I had 5 bikes to slime. The regular schrader valves were easy to fill. Everything you need (valve remover, hose) is included. The problems began when I tried to slime the tubes with presta valves (Cannondale). I found a YouTube video showing how to do this. I would suggest you watch a video to see if you would be comfortable with this before buying the product (involves forcing the little nut off of the valve and allowing the valve to drop into the tube). Other than that I am happy thinking that now when we go on family bike rides the likelihood of getting stopped by a flat is nil. I hope my expectations are right but have not testing the product yet buy running over anything that would have normally caused a flat.
I ride a mountian bike and i ofter run over glass and thorns and this is a great overall protection from ever getting stuck with a flat tire.
Slime itself works great at plugging leaks. My low rating is for the pump on the gallon
bottle. The label on it says 1 oz per pump. After going by this for a while with hit and miss
results, I came to find it's only pumping 1/3 of an ounce. Explains a lot of problems.
Test your pump before hand with some water. If it's really 1oz, 8 pumps will fill 1 cup.
Slime seems to be water soluable.
Since this is for emergency repairs, a defective pump becomes a major problem, and makes the whole thing useless. There is a tag on the pump with a special number to call for defective pumps, so this must be a common problem. The pump that comes with it is NOT the pump shown in the picture.
My husband has been using green Slime for many years. Works great for ATV and bicycle tires, especially if you ride in a desert area where there are many, many thorny weeds. Goatheads have thorns that are just like thumbtacks. Slime seals the tires around these pesky thorns and prevents flats. Works great for lawn mower or utility trailer tires too. We don't use it on car or truck tires, but it's great on small tires.
Live on our yacht and this product was recommended to seal our dingy - which has 3 chambers. Worked excellent.
I can't knock the product because someone screwed up the packaging by sending a gallon with a loose cap. Or can I? Isn't it just wrong that a sealant would still be leaking when it arrived? In any case, it's freaking funny. Seems to be working in a bicycle tube that went flat.; Just added 4 oz's of slime and 65 lbs of nitrogen and went for a spin. No psi lost after about 2 weeks. Deciding whether to buy it was confusing because the company's recommendations are ambiguous with regard to use in bike tubes.
