We have both in our head
manual pumps / faucets and a foot pump. While I have never used them in the last 4+yrs (due to the pressure system) my wife finds them taking up her space. My 7yr does occasional find some enjoyment in in them when washing
dishes to give him some extra entertainment. For me they are just extra maintenance
, extra parts
to carry and extra hoses running around.
But are they needed?
In what cases may I miss that I may wish to have them?
In my worse case that I could think (some how loosing all batteries / solar
and all 6 fresh water
pumps including the drill pump attachment
I still have easy enough access to the water tanks
where I could suck it out with a hose or even scoop it out with a pitcher.
Sure it wouldnt be as nice or easy if I was out in the middle of the Atlantic or Pacific and did have them but I am guess missing all the above would be causing much more worries for me
