Kite pump

Postby Bill » Fri Oct 25, 2019 10:17 pm

Borrowed a friend's ozone pump and wow so much easier to use than mine. Pumping the kite was effortless. Just wondered why that should be? Would it be down to the lubrication used?

Smaller "SUP" diameter?, or regular?

Ozone pump V2 with the integrated pressure gauge and filter is the same as my North/Duotone (medium?) size pump. It's important to regularly maintain a pump by cleaning inside and re-lubricating it. I think they're made by Bravo which is (I think) a trading name of the Italian company "Scoprega" (https://www.scoprega.it/nqcontent.cfm?a_id=5542)
