Thanks guys, your answers eased my worries. ^^
I really am looking forward to getting that Zenith, it's my first giant inflatable.

You can also repair inflatables much more easily than balloons. Unless you blow a seam out you can usually get it fixed relatively easily.

Ive owned a color wheel and river rat swim tube 48 inch since 2011 no leaks. No special storage. Vinyl never an issue, its always a tiny seeem tear that gets you.

Blowing a seam out can be a good thing on the more simple construction items like, say a beach ball.

You can turn them inside out, glue scrap vinyl along all the seams and end panels, then turn it back right way out and reseal the blown out seam and..... vola- a much tougher item you've now got and you'll soon get the knack for repair and mod work on more complex items

Wouldn't turning a inflatable inside out through a blown seam sretch the already blown seam and make the leak larger?
