I have a new basketball, I have owned it just several months.
When trying to inflate it with the pump, it feels like it gets inflated and deflated at the same time, so I either end up with less pressure air than what I had, or just a little more, which is still nowhere to the pressure I actually need.
I insert the needle pretty straight, all the way in, and then start pumping back and forth. if I don't pump, I can hear and smell the air coming out just by having the needle inserted.
Am I doing anything wrong?
I would have tried filling at a gas station but the needle attachment cannot connect to the air machine in the gas station.
