Instead of buying a manual pump, rebuilding the diaphram every couple of years (expensive kit), or not rebuilding and being pumpless. Suggest a bucket as more cost effective and reliable when dealing with the failure of your battery operated pumps.

Whale 30 (gallons per minute)


Alternatively double acting Henderson Mk5



I've just fitted the Henderson in my boat, using a through deck fitting.

Not everyone can get a bucket into their bilge as you might.

Notwithstanding, where do you empty your bucket?
