Pumps

Anyone thinking about buying a bravo electric pump for air floors dont bother my second one has packed up today.

Ive striped it down and cant believe how poor quality they.

Anyone know of any decent pumps for airfloors?

Mine still works but I got garbage in it and had to pull it apart. For the money, I expected better build quality. Not much else out there better though.

There is a Chinese HP clone out there - not much cheaper at retail but if we were all to get together for a direct group purchase from the Asia wholesaler...always thought the Bravo were very overpriced for what they are...

Loonasea, what pump are you having problems with? We sell a lot of Bravo products and rarely see any problems.

The new BTP pump is the long term replacement for the BST and is really well built

I bought one of these ten years ago, it's never been looked after and chucked about from one boat to to the next over the years but still works as well today as the day I bought it.

I have the same and can confirm that this pump works great ! It works already SO LONG so great that I cannot remember where I bought it - nor I can read somewhere on the housing something about the manufacturer .. ((
