I experimented with bladder repairs years ago. I had two blown out kites and I was in fairly remote location where it took weeks to get a new bladder shipped. After several surgeries and a lot of trial and error I had a frankenstein of a bladder that worked just fine. I used the method with iron/wax paper described in the earlier post. One thing I found was that making a double or "parallel" seam gave added integrity. I spent many days sidelined, patching bladder and checking for leaks. It sucked balls. It was fulfilling when I got the hang of it and actually put it to the test. At one point I was so excited to get on the water I did a hasty job inserting the bladder and it popped again when I was inflating it due to a twist. My oh my I could've just started crying like a bitch right there on the beach. In addition to the tips edt supplied: baby powder, baby powder, baby powder.

I think you made a good call gluing the valve shut. It worked for me.
