    Leaky bite valve

    How do I stop my bite valve from leaking? Last night it was like riding with a fire hose. I have a Deuter pack, and I have to do some kind of intense biting and sucking on the valve to make it stop leaking. It takes a lot of work and concentration that I'd rather devote to the trail? Even my camelback was never great at not leaking. Any suggestions?

    You can replace the bite valve and tube for about $6 - search Google or eBay

    here

    you can get the Deuter one, or if the hose is the same size, most shops have Camelbak ones.

    If you needed a lot of biting to get it to work and then to stop, it's likely either a poor design or toast. Replacing it is usually the quickest, cheapest and least aggravating solution.
