How does one go about checking the air pressure in your pontoons?

Pontoons are not typically pressurized unless someone has jury rigged them to be pressurized.  If jury rigged, there will be a filler spout similar to a car tire.  If not jury rigged there is no pressurization except ambient air  that resulted when being put together.  If there are drain plugs at the bottom of the rear of each tube then these are for checking for water in the tubes.  In any case, no more than 3 PSI pressure should be applied to pontoons.  They will explode if over pressurized.
