Air Pump as a Bilge Pump

Post by Camper » Sat Jun 15, 2019 11:33 am

In the interest of having one less item to take with me on trips... Has anyone tried using the AE pump (with gauge) as a bilge pump?

Is it effective? Will it damage the pump?

I'd just try it myself, but I don't want to run water through it before I know whether or not it will damage anything. Much better to ask if someone else has been braver than I. :)

Never tried it. I don't recommend using any air pump as a bilge pump, particularly not on salt water!
