    I have used bumpers that were filled with foam. They weren't mine. I will fill mine when the valves go bad.

    Used a hot melt glue gun to plug them off before. It holds up pretty good.

    I have lost the plug on some of mine and used a polyurethane caulking to plug the hole. They are many years old and have never failed. Make sure it's a big blob and let it dry a couple of days to make sure.
