[Equipment] Signs that it's time to replace F&P Simplus cushion?
#1
Signs that it's time to replace F&P Simplus cushion?
What are some more obvious signs that it might be time to replace my F&P Simplus cushion? I've been using the same cushion for over a year now (cleaning it regularly) and it seems to be fine, but then I read about people who replace the cushion every 3 months and I wonder if I should be replacing it more often? It doesn't have any tears or rips in the cushion and still inflates fine and keeps a good seal with minimal leakage.

-Paul.

Pretty simple. Replace it when it no longer holds a seal.

It might last another 5 years at this rate. Smile

I'm on 3 months with my Simplus cushion and still going good. I found that leaks always happen before failure, in my experience. I was going to see if there would be another failure mode but I'll just see what you have to say. Thanks!

I'm coming up on 3 .5 years with my Simplus and it performs just like the day I received it. Just make sure you keep it out of direct sunlight.
