I just noticed today that one of my float tube bladders isn't holding air well anymore, I used it two days ago and didn't notice a problem...Anyways, I have tried the whole covering it with soapy water and looking for bubbles technique, can't find anything. I also stuck the bladder under water in my hot tub and wasn't seeing any bubbles there either... I wrapped my valve threads in Teflon tape and that made no difference. I can't hear any air being released upon filling it up. Its clearly leaking somewhere though. You guys have any other techniques or ideas that have worked for you? I was hoping to use it tomorrow but it's not looking too good

Bummer man. Probably leaking on a seam. They suck the worst to find. I would suggest the "turn of the lights and shine a flashlight in technique", but may not work on a seam leak.
