Operation, Storage, Maintenance and Cleaning
- Keep open fires and heat sources away from the X-GLOO.
- When the tent is used in sandy terrain, avoid getting sand grains in the Tubes or in the Pump
- Keep the Valves free of sand and dirt particles and clean them if necessary, since this can cause faulty operation and leakage.
- The tent can be damaged by the penetration of sharp objects (e.g. knives, tools) in the Tubes causing leakage and loss of pressure. Handle the X-GLOO with appropriate care.
- Avoid extreme variations in temperature (day and night) or long-term use. This can lead to loss of pressure caused by material- or structural damage, requiring reinflation of the tent.
Procedure in the case of pressure loss:
- FIRST close all Valves TIGHTLY!
- If pressure loss continues, blow out the Overpressure Valves to remove all dust or dirt particles.
- If pressure loss still continues, the quickest solution is to remove the Bladder and replace it, since Bladder damage is likely!
- If the damage can be found from the outside and the damaged area is smaller than 1 cm -> Apply the Adhesive Repair Patch from the Repair Kit.
- If the damaged area cannot be found, spray some soap suds onto the inflated Bladder surface so that the escaping air bubbles are visible and the damage can be located. Then apply the Adhesive Repair Patch to repair the Bladder.
Maintenance and Cleaning
All kinds of repairs can be done in our Service Center in Marquartstein or Las Vegas. Please use for commissioning the service order sheet.
- Maintenance and repair should be carried out only by the manufacturer or by an authorized operation.
- The X-GLOO should be periodically inspected for chafe marks and damage and promptly repaired.
- In order to avoid damage of the material coating, only warm water and a very soft brush should be used to clean the tent. Use a mild alkaline solution and a cloth for optimal cleaning.
- Do not use solvents, washing machines or steam cleaning.
- Re-waterproofing is not possible.
