Bravo 21 Electric pump problems

Does anybody else have one of these Bravo 21 electric pumps? The one we have is a total waste of time. Ive read the instructions and we can't get it to blow with a good woompth. We've also got the good old Bravo 12 which is fantastic.

The Bravo 21 seems to be only blowing in the high pressure phase.

Does anyone have any ideas????
Thanks
Brian

The Bravo 21 has a spec flow rate of 125l/min rather than the flow rates of 160l/min for the single stage model 12 and the turbine stage 450l/min of the dual stage BTP12 models.

So the spec implies it might seem slow, offset by its ability to make 22psi rather than 15psi of a standard Bravo hp pump. Pressure not volume is the USP of the model 21.

Ahhhh that explains it. Somebody did mention that they’re best suited to blowing up paddle boards as they have a built in battery.

Yep I think they are targeted at the paddle board folks... if you haven't already you have an excuse to get one to go with the pump.
