Pumps

Are we talking air or water here???

If air, get the Rule 12v one. It is brilliant and you only need to buy one since they last!

They do make a bit of a racket, though.

If water, as above.

240v Air Pump

With access to 240v why not use a vacuum cleaner on Blow ?

I use my workshop wet n Dry vac to inflate my inflatable

Cheers

Having thought about this, you don't need a Hoover, just a Hoover motor, a bit of duct tape and some flexible stuff. Get crackin'!
