When boaters need a hand pump they can depend on, they can trust a Beckson Marine Thirsty-Mate. Self-priming and easy-to-clean, these proven hand pumps will not rust, corrode or mar a boat.
Manufactured since 1955 in the USA with the highest quality materials available, they're built for long-lasting superior performance. If the pumps become clogged, users simply remove their foot valve assembly, by applying low heat, such as warm water, and clean out the inside.
Enabling unimpeded water flow, the water-lubricated pumps' intake and discharge are the same size, with capacities ranging from 6 to 30 gallons a minute. With a contoured, trademarked red tee handle and a special polyvinyl grey body and shaft, Beckson's solvent-welded, lightweight hand pumps are constructed for reliability. Certified by the Marine Testing Institute in 1969 to "1,162,835 strokes and still performing," these Beckson pumps have outlived the institute.
Easy to operate, Thirsty-Mate pumps are available in four different diameters ranging from 1-1/4" to 3" and multiple lengths starting at 18". Spare parts, such as replacement foot valve assemblies and hoses, are sold separately.
The Thirsty-Mate Hand Pumps from Beckson Marine have starting prices of $23 to $360.
