Hand Bilge Pump Type?

#1 Post by XXXX_guy » Wed Jan 23, 2019 7:22 pm

Hi,

I've installed an electrical bilge pump in my SOT kayak. Just wondering if anyone has any opinions/experience on the different types of hand bilge pumps available.

I'm trying to decide between one that looks similar to a yabby pump but bigger inlets and outlets (2 hand operation), and one that looks like the flush mechanism for a porta-potty (Fix to body of kayak for single hand operation- diaphragm pump).

Any advice would be appreciated:)

"Sea to summit" pump from Anaconda is currently on sale. It does everything needed, self floating, bright in colour, high pumping rate
