Foot pump for topping up air floor

What pump, if any, do you use to top up air floor and tubes? I'm looking at the Bravo foot pumps. The Bravo 9 is the only high pressure pump I can find but it doesn't come with a gauge. Is there a better option?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but oddly the only Bravo footpump with a gauge is a lower pressure model insufficient for HP air floors.

I just have a Bravo inline gauge for my HP footpump and that works fine. This is the type for Zodiac models, I think there are others for different valves perhaps...

I spent a long time trying to find a high pressure Bravo footpump with a gauge - It didn't make sense to me that they wouldn't have this option but apparently they don't.

I have to use a non UK shop since I live in Denmark. I'm guessing this is the same gauge though. At least it says "Bravo" on the dial:

Congratulations on your new Elling by the way! I'm already enjoying the setup and mods thread.

I started a post on here few weeks back on 12v pumps. I have just bought a hiks pump 12v and I bought a stirrup pump one as well , this has a gauge built on it but it was not accurate as the dial one I have, but for the money highly recommend it, pumped my floor up to the .8 bar no effort. better than the bravo 10 I destroyed trying to get up to .8 bar.

I already have a Bravo BTP 12 that works great, but on the water I don't want to rely on an electric pump that could run out of power or the battery could get wet.

I bought a Bravo 9 which is rated for 1 bar so it should be fine with my 0.8 bar air floor.
